  • Brambles ready for some pruning

    It’s time to clean up the bramble patch: In order to maintain healthy and productive blackberries and raspberries, we need to prune out the old to make room for the new.   
    Most brambles are biennial, which means they fruit on second-year growth.  
    Blackberries are easy to deal with, just remove the arching canes that fruited this year and trim up and trellis the new growth from this summer, which will bear next summer’s fruit. Repeat the same thing next year.

    The Fall 2013 semester is well under way on the Hilltop. Finals week will be here before long, and spring registration has begun.

  • School forum an important step forward

    The “Understanding Teenagers” forum Monday night was an excellent step forward for Harrison County.
    Although a few concerned parents expressed disappointment that the high school auditorium was not filled to capacity, given the serious nature of the issue, we do not share that opinion.
    In fact, there is every reason to commend the Harrison County School administration and the UK HealthCare Adolescent Medicine Division for hosting a successful forum that exceeded expectations.
