  • Help elect Lutz for magistrate

    To the editor:

    People say that as each election comes around, that this is the most important election ever. Well, we don’t know if that is true or not, but what we do know is that Harrison County has not developed like the surrounding counties have. Harrison County has had the same group of people in office and we need a change to lead us to a bright future. One leader of that generation is Missy Lutz, who is running for magistrate in District 4 - that is the Leesburg and Extension Office precincts. Please help us get her elected.

  • Propagating trees from seed

    Some plants are prolific; some are not. 

    Dandelion seeds float through the air and disperses far and wide in spring or summer; hundreds of tiny seeds burst from the spent blooms of cleome as a sphinx moth feeds at dusk; and you can just walk past some hairy cress and millions of seed burst forth from the draft.

    Woody plants seem to be a bit more elusive. I have never seen a Serbian spruce spring forth from a fallen cone or an apple tree emerge from rotten fruit beneath the canopy. 

    Starting woody plants from seed can be a bit more tricky.

  • City ups commitment to $100k to Wedco for wellness facility

    The city has agreed to give additional funding toward the proposed indoor activities facility at Flat Run Veterans Park.

    While the commission voted to give $62,500 to the project at a special meeting last week, Commissioner Mark Mattmiller told the commission at Tuesday evening’s meeting that Wedco needed additional funds for the matching Healthy Kentucky grant application.

    “If they (Wedco) don’t get the grant, we get the money back,” Mattmiller said.

    Mattmiller said the grant deadline is this upcoming Monday.
