  • “Here’s Your Sign”

    I was entertained by Bill Engvall’s parody in one of our local businesses just the other day. It hasn’t lost its comic appeal.

  • I wish you could walk in my shoes

    I wish you could walk in my shoes.
    I’m talking about my Skechers round-toed EZ Flex 2 Sweetpea slip-ons with the softest, most cushiony memory foam footbeds that feel like I’m walking on pillows.
    I have three pairs -- black, gray and powder blue. Today I’m wearing the powder blue ones.
    They are the most comfortable shoes I own and quite possibly the most comfortable shoes I may have ever worn before in my entire life.
    I love these shoes.

  • Fillies roll into region semi’s with 10-0 win over Campbell Co.

    The pattern established late in the season of scoring early worked well again for the Harrison County Fillies Monday as they defeated Campbell County, 10-0, in the second game of the 10th Region tournament.  
    The Fillies scored five times in the first inning to put the Lady Camels away for all practical purposes.  
    The fact that Harrison County starting pitcher Jami Davis allowed only one hit in the six inning affair made the five early runs that much bigger.

    Senior Zack Day’s two-out two-RBI single in the bottom of the sixth lifted the Harrison County Thorobreds to a 4-3 win over Montgomery County in the 10th Region tournament Monday in Paris.  
    The win not only propelled the Breds into the semi finals on Wednesday against Scott High (16-17), but also avenged two regular season losses to the Indians.

  • Hometown young lady does well, again

    Camryn Whitaker spoke to the Cynthiana Lions Club Tuesday and as usual did a bang up job. She spoke to the Rotary Club the Thursday before but readily made the trip back to speak to the Lions.  
    Of course, the trip gave her another chance to be with her family as her mother Connie, dad, Mac and niece Harper were in attendance for the meeting.  
    There were several guests for the meeting along with the regular Lions so the upstairs meeting room at Biancke’s was full.

  • Spinosad broad spectrum bio-insecticide

    I have a very small arsenal of insecticides and what I do have are considered bio-insecticides.
    Bio-insecticides are derived from naturally occurring micro-organisms like bacterium. They also include plant oils and compounds (like neem oil which acts as both an insecticide and fungicide), viruses and protozoa. When we use a bio-insecticide we are essentially using nature to eat nature.
