Today's News

  • Spring cleaning and random thoughts

    The other day my husband opened up both of the closet doors in our bedroom and pointed out that my stuff has progressively crept into his closet and that I should do something about it.
    “Like throw your stuff out to make more room for mine?” I asked.
    Um, the answer to that would be no.
    So, I got a plastic bag and started filling it with clothes I no longer wear, and then I started going through old file folders filled with notes and beginnings of columns. That always prompts a bits and pieces column, like today’s. So, here goes:

  • Rust travels between host plants

    Last year our serviceberry was afflicted with a whimsical looking disease; the beautiful blue berries that appear in the summer looked like something from a Dr. Seuss book.  
    In a good year the cedar wax wings usually flock in and eat the berries as they ripen, not so last year. The strange, white tubular protrusions that the berries were covered in not only looked funny but they kept the birds away, too.

    Junior CJ Claypool didn’t allow a hit until the fifth inning and his teammates pushed across three runs in the third as the Harrison County Thorobreds won at Carlisle 4-0 Tuesday night.  
    Claypool struck out 13 and walked only one while allowing two hits in a dominating performance over the Nicholas County Bluejackets.  
    Second baseman Mercer Wills was the only Jackets player to reach as far as second base in the game.
