  • Perennial hardy geraniums

    My interest in hardy geraniums started around 1996.   In European gardens they were as commonplace as phlox was in American perennial gardens.  
    Twenty years later and hardy geraniums are available in all their glory at most garden centers.
    Experience has taught us which ones are suited to our warm summer climate.
    Most of us think of geraniums as an annual that we plant in our yards or in pots to add color to our patios during the summer months.  Well, this plant is actually a Pelargonium.  

  • Additional acreage dedicated to CRP for wildlife habitat and wetlands

  • Scott upends Breds for 10th Region title

    In the end, it was shaky defense and the lack of much offensive punch that doomed the Harrison County Thorobreds on Friday night in Winchester.

  • Fillies Fall to Lady Cards in Semis

    Clark County ended the Harrison County Fillies’ season last Thursday in the 10th Region Semifinals at Montgomery County, 5-2.
    Harrison County mounted a comeback, but was never able to overcome Clark’s three-run first inning.
    With Jami Davis on the mound for the Fillies, GRC took advantage of one Harrison County error and got a clutch two-out, two-run single from Erica Carrus for their early 3-0 lead.
    “We came out tight and a few mistakes defensively,” said Harison County coach Christine Garnett after the game.”

  • Coach Whitaker has always served as role model

    I had the honor and priviledge of introducing Camryn Whitaker at the Cynthiana Lion’s Club meeting on Tuesday of this week.  As all local sports fans are surely aware, Camryn was recently named as a new assistant coach in the University of Kentucky’s women’s basketball program.
    This is not about her exploits either on the court as a player, or on the sidelines as a coach.
