  • Chestnut weevil thwarts this year’s harvest

    A Voice-Tribune reader recently asked about the worms in her chestnuts; well, I am afraid I am in the same boat.  
    We have chestnut weevils. I love our nut grove for a multitude of reasons: It shelters our meat chickens that are ranging freely in its shade; the sheep graze and even munch on fallen nut meat. In other areas we collect pecans and Chinese chestnuts among other offerings.  
    The pecans are clean as a whistle this year, but the chestnuts are a bust.  

  • Breds offense offensive in 14-0 loss to Holmes Friday

    Forty-four total yards and five first downs will not win many if any games. Yet that was the total output for the Harrison County Thorobreds Friday night in the homecoming battle with the Covington Holmes Bulldogs.

  • Some things are left better off not posted

    Recently tragedy struck Harrison County when a 14-year-old girl took her life.
    While the details of the incident are not all that important at this time, thoughts and prayers go out to those friends and family members who will forever be burdened with the untimely loss.
    As for my main point of this week’s column, I would like to focus toward what I feel continues to be an ongoing issue among society.
    This week I unfortunately came across a rather lengthy and pointless discussion thread on Facebook.
