  • Finally basketball

    The lull between high school football’s end and high school basketball’s start is almost unbearable.  
    The only Harrison Countians playing football now are Joseph and Bob Ammerman officiating and Jim McKee coaching. One has to be at the right place at the right time for that.   
    I cannot get excited about college basketball yet since, for the most part, the big name teams are playing not-so-good competition and blowing them out. It is so long until a game really matters.

  • What about orchids?

    Have you ever wondered what makes an orchid an orchid?
    Well, it is all about flower parts. In fact, most plants are categorized in the Plant Kingdom by their flowers.  For orchids, it is the fact that they have three sepals and three petals.  
    Many flowers have green sepals that protect the flower inside which cradles the bloom as it opens.  
    You will understand this nuance if you have ever observed the slow transformation of an opening bloom.
