  • Class sports are a huge mistake

    I saw where a couple of coaches were asking the Kentucky High School Athletic Association to look into having class baseball and other sports like they do football. 

    This would, of course, not include basketball which already has a class A tournament. Besides, the basketball tournament is the big cash cow that operates the rest of the tournaments that do not pay their own way.

  • Royals trump Breds Friday night

    The Harrison County Thorobreds hosted one of the favorites to win the 10th Region Friday night and Mason County showed one and all why they are rated so highly.  

    In a game where Harrison County never led, Mason County pulled away to an easy 71-51 victory. Easy, not to say the Thorobreds didn’t try hard, but like the Clark County game, they never could get shots to fall early and just kept falling further behind. 

  • Deicing agents hard on plants

    A blanket of snow has the ability to brighten the dreariest of days. And, despite school closures and tricky driving, a snow-covered landscape proves to be quite beautiful. It’s not so bad for the plants either, so don’t be tempted to knock the snow off drooping branches.

    Snow has an insulating effect which is particularly useful when we do have frigid temperatures. Ground level snow will actually protect the roots and crowns of perennial and woody plants, but you may notice a little burn above the snow level when it comes to broadleaf evergreens.
