  • A correction on bowling team and football season ends

    The hardest part first: My article on the bowling team last week had some errors and I need to do what I can about that.  
    First, Shelby Morris was the Fillies’ bowler on the All Tournament team and not the player that I mentioned.  
    I tried to do the article from a roster that a parent sent me and my memory, which was a mistake.  
    I do appreciate the roster, but my memory wasn’t good enough to be accurate about all of the players.  

  • Eighth grade HCMS Colts remain undefeated Monday

    The sixth, seventh and eight grade Harrison County Middle School Colts traveled to Winchester Monday to take on the new Robert D. Campbell School.  
    The results were quite different, however, as the sixth grade started slowly and was hopelessly out of the game early, the seventh grade hung around for a half before losing and the eighth grade team won.
    The bus was some 30 minutes late arriving so the sixth grade Colts had little time to warm up and prepare, which was evident by their slow start.

  • Tips to stay safe in winter weather

    (StatePoint) Winter weather can bring with it the potential for slippery steps, power outages and other seasonal hazards. By being prepared in advance, you can weather the storm more comfortably and safely.
    Here are some crucial things to consider this season:
    Staying Powered
    While reading by candlelight is charming when it is by choice, a power outage is a different story. Losing power is not just an inconvenience; it could mean being unable to communicate with loved ones, spoiled food, and dangerous dips in indoor temperature.

  • Live or fresh-cut

    It is hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us. I have family visiting for Christmas so this means a bigger tree than normal; if you are going to travel to come see us, this is the least I can do. Plus, it is fun to find the “perfect” tree that fits your space and holds precious ornaments with style.
    So, which type of tree reflects your holiday?
    Do you get a fresh-cut, artificial, balled and burlapped?  Or do you just go out-of-town and let someone else do the decorating?  

  • Memories are made for Sunrise Homemaker Club

    The Sunrise Homemaker Club traveled to Lexington, Ky. on June 9 to visit Peggy Barlow at the Willows Assisted Living Center. Our Club usually did an end of year trip and decided a visit to see Barlow, shopping at Hamburg and eating out sounded like a fun day.
    Barlow, a long time member of the club, had not been active for a few years and could no longer stay in her home in Harrison County. It was a great day for her and she was anxiously awaiting our visit.
