  • HMH campus going tobacco-free Tuesday

    With good health being its central focus, Harrison Memorial Hospital is making some changes to aid in that pursuit.

    Starting on Tuesday, the hospital's entire campus - building and grounds - will go tobacco-free.

    The policy includes cigarettes, cigars, pipes and smokeless tobacco products.

    The hospital announced plans to go smoke-free a year ago, and recently signage has popped up reminding people of the impending change.

    HMH has been smoke-free for employees since May 1. Root said this has had an added benefit.

  • Williams asset to officiating; school coaching facing dilemma

    It seems to me that finding coaches and officials for youth league sports is usually not a very difficult endeavor, although those league directors who are charged with that obligation may disagree.

    Normally, the life-span of those coaches is about the same length of time that their child remains eligible in that particular league. When the child moves onward and, or, upward, so does the parent.

    The life span of umpires and referees is a bit more static some stay longer than others. Meager pay, hostile parents and perhaps thin skin is enough to drive game arbiters away.

  • Cicadas' sounds were music to my ears

    On a recent Friday afternoon I was leaving the Licking Valley Campus where I work, when I saw our Bradford Pear tree working alive with activity.

    A closer inspection revealed hundreds of singing cicadas. I grabbed my camera out of the car and climbed under the lower limbs of the tree to get a better look.

    Amazing.

    I started shooting pictures while my colleague Debbie Gill gasped, "What are you doing?" She doesn't like cicadas.
