  • Thorobreds split weekend games in Northern Kentucky

    Only a last-second shot by St. Henry’s senior guard Nick Rechtin prevented the Harrison County Thorobreds from sweeping a weekend of basketball games in northern Kentucky Saturday night.  
    The Thorobreds dropped a 62-61 verdict on Rechtin’s last-second shot on Saturday after defeating Covington Holy Cross 73-58 the night before in Covington.
    On Friday night, the Breds jumped out to an early 15-3 lead and it looked as though they would blow the Indians out of their own gym.  

  • Forgiveness sets the captive free

    “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” Colossians 3:13

  • Controlling pests on indoor plants

    Have you noticed a sticky substance on the floor beneath your ficus or philodendron?  Are there little scabs on the underside of the leaves of your orchid? Maybe you have noticed that your plants just look a little lack luster.  
    Well, we can blame some of the plant puniness on being a tropical houseplant indoors in Kentuckiana during the winter.
    Low levels of humidity and low levels of light trigger a response in plants that slows them down, causing them to shed foliage and leaving them in a standby phase until the environment turns more favorable.

    Thank you homemakers,

    Dear Cynthiana New Millennium Homemakers,
    First off, I had no heads-up that you would be coming here tonight. However, I would like to, once again, let you know how very much the other residents depend on your gestures of kindness and generosity you are not going unnoticed or unappreciated. Thanks again for your yearly visit, for it does make my life the least more bearable and optimistic.
    Thank you.
    Sincerely
    Josh Marshall,
    Shady Lawn resident
