  • MCTC/LVC students to host ‘Days at the Museum’ Nov. 9 and 10

    By Donna Slone-Crumbie, MCTC-LVC
    About five years ago I began teaching at the Licking Valley Campus of Maysville Community and Technical College.  
    It did not take me long to recognize the connection between the college and the community. After becoming aware of this relationship, I decided to require my students to participate in some type of volunteering – we call it service learning – that will benefit the community.

  • A lady beetle invasion common this time of the year

    Some years are worse than others: I remember years when it was like a siege of lady beetles, other years a few popped up here or there.   
    Usually they sneak their way into our homes as a noticeable chill settles in.  
    On sunny days they cling to the screen door on the south side of where I write.  Presently they are displayed before me.
    I need not worry about them as they sun themselves; but the ones that collect indoors, well your best bet is a vacuum cleaner.
