  • It’s been a bad season for tomatoes

    Everyone is talking about what a terrible season it has been for vegetable farming.
    My garden is growing weeds while the onions rot and the tomatoes languish on the vine. The rain has made for soggy ground that starves annual plants of oxygen.  
    So what are we to do?  
    First and foremost this is a reminder of how important it is to build soil year after year to ensure good drainage for plants that would otherwise be starved of oxygen if they are trapped in soggy, clayey soils.  
    The rest is lies in our cultural practices.

  • Judge says side-street repairs coming, annexation next step

    By Kelly McKinney, News writer
    Streets in the area of businesses off U.S. 27 South are one step closer to being annexed into the city after the Harrison County Fiscal Court voted Tuesday to seek bids for necessary repairs and repaving.
    Judge-Executive Alex Barnett told the court that the money for the work would come from the governor’s office. The work is estimated to cost about $65,000, he said.  
    Barnett said that once the work is done, the city has agreed to take over the roads and be responsible for their upkeep.
