  • Setting out your own strawberry patch

    Spring planting of strawberries is recommended for Kentuckiana, as early as March. The key to a good crop is to plant them in the right spot and to choose the right variety … and this is where it can be a little confusing.
    There are several different categories of strawberries including June-bearing, ever-bearing and day-neutral.  
    June-bearing varieties have traditionally been the best tasting and these are the ones that must be pinched in the first year, producing a late spring crop the following year.

  • New decal system for license begins Thursday

    Print on Demand Decals (PODD) will begin in the Harrison County Clerk’s office on Thursday. The vehicle registration system is changing to “print on demand” decals for license plate renewals. Instead of clerk offices having to stock booklets of preprinted decals, the new decals are printed at the time of registration. The process will be more efficient and more cost effective.
