  • Fall sports are here, let’s go out and support the local teams!

    The 2016-17 school year starts in a week and there is much excitement on the Hilltop.

    Of course, there are other things to be excited about other than sports but since this is a sports column I will contain myself and only talk sports.  

    One sport that has been going on for twelve long years is the continued banter and now a law suit about the Handy House.  What a colossal waste of time.

  • Fall is a good time to divide perennials

    Jessica Sayre,

    Harrison Co. Horticulture Agent


    If your perennials didn’t put on their usual show this spring, it may be time to dig and divide. Perennials need space, and once they become crowded, blooms can become smaller and infrequent. Dividing the plants to create more room usually restores their vigor.

  • Troop 76
  • Swallows glean in flight

    Swallow Rail was the name Dad gave the farm over 30 years ago. He wanted it to be relevant, reflecting the spatial and natural qualities of his 18 acres in Western Shelby County.  

    His inspiration came from the swallows that swoop and swerve so adeptly in open fields, catching insects on the fly.  

    The rail of Swallow Rail comes from the two railroad tracks that flank either end of the road.
