    The Harrison County Fillies traveled to Montgomery County Wednesday and came home with a 4-2 win over the 2-2-2 Lady Indians.  
    The match, the most physical to date for the Fillies, saw the home team jump out to a 1-0 lead in the third minute of the first half on a diagonal ball score.
    “It has been the slow start that has been our Achilles heel so far this season,” noted Coach Kevin Gaunce. “We have given up early goals in the last three games.”

    A very good crowd came to the Hilltop Friday evening, but went away disappointed as the Breds dropped a 42-6 game to the Montgomery County Indians.

  • Plant now for a beautiful fall garden

    Don’t pack away that shovel and trowel. Fall is a great time to plant a few new additions in the landscape. Here are just a few ideas for adding immediate and long term beauty to your garden.
    Add cool season annuals like pansies, snapdragons, ornamental kale and stocks to brighten the fall garden. Those in milder regions will enjoy them throughout the winter.  Consider adding cold hardy pansies. They provide color in the fall garden, survive most winters, and are back blooming in the spring just as the snow melts.
