  • Don’t forget those nurses on Derby Day

    The first Saturday in May is a Big, Big day, and I am not referring to the Derby. We Kentuckians are justly proud of the Derby, but after all how many of us really have seen, touched or been directly affected by these magnificent animals? Not many.
    But on the first Saturday in May we are going to have the opportunity to celebrate Nurses’ Day and I just bet that everyone in our reading audience has been positively affected at some point in their lives by a nurse or even  lots of nurses.

    One of Harrison County’s biggest supporters died on Sunday leaving a huge hole in the local sports programs.
    Dr. Richard “Rick” Arnold Sr. apparently died in his sleep while friends and family assumed he couldn’t be reached because he was at his beloved Cincinnati Reds baseball game, according to long-time friend and coach Ray Graham.
    Dr. Arnold was 67.

  • Viewpoint

    Our family got a scare on Tuesday, when we were told our grandson, Calvert, had been taken to the emergency room at Harrison Memorial Hospital.
    Calvert is a rather ‘busy’ lad, and his genetics are only gonna make it worse, I think. Right now, he is fearless and invincible, or so he thinks.
    Thoughts of him climbing somewhere, falling and breaking an arm or a leg, or sustaining a gash that required stitches, were not far-fetched.

  • Fire restores prairie, eliminates thatch left over from winter

    Back in 2007 we installed a 5-acre tall-grass prairie with assistance from the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Habitat Improvement Program.  
    Each year they assist a number of landowners in various ways that improve habitat, prevent erosion and protect waterways. Basically, you do the work but they supply you with the materials needed to get the job done.
