    Soccer Senior Night
    changed to Friday
    The Harrison County High School soccer team’s Senior Night has been changed to Friday, Oct. 2, to accommodate the opponent, Calvary Christian. This will also be Free Youth Night for any youth soccer league player who comes dressed in his/her jersey.
    One of the Calvary Christian player’s mother passed away on Tuesday and the visitation and ceremony is Thursday night. This was the only alternative date that would allow the match to be played with the Cougars.

  • How much is too much

    Coach Larry Kendall sent me an email the other day to let me know about the change in the basketball schedule in regards to the game with Collins in February.  
    It seems that the Thorobreds are going to play this game in Banker’s Life Arena in Indianapolis instead of on the Hilltop.  
    How about that for a change in destination?  
    What a great opportunity for the young men on the team, the coaches and the cheerleaders to get to play, coach and cheer on a professional floor.  
    What is the catch you might be thinking?

  • Short days, cool nights initiate bloom for holiday cacti

    When attempting to grow tropical plants we are met with the challenge of mimicking their native habitat which is difficult inside our homes. We can allow Mother Nature to take care of some of this, outside, for now.  
    Move some of your orchids, holiday cacti and Clivia outdoors for the remainder of the season because we can initiate bloom by naturally managing day length and night-time temperatures.  
    The flowering of many plants (including some native species) is initiated by how many hours of light and dark the plant receives in a 24-hour period.
