    The Harrison County Thorobreds improved their season soccer mark to 10-3-2 with shutouts of Paris on Thursday and Sayre, Saturday morning. 

    Both of the games were played at LeBus Field, but the play and intensity was different in each game.

  • Stuck on the throne of fear

    The night I was struck with fear began as any other ordinary night.

    I put on pajamas, brushed my teeth, washed my face and went to bed.

    I am 24 years old, but I think I have an 88-year-old bladder.

    I woke up around midnight, like so many other nights, and had to pee.

    I got up and blindly made my way to the dark bathroom.

    I situated myself on the porcelain prince and prepared to do what I had been called there to do... when I saw something out of the corner of my eye.

  • Managing droughty conditions

    It has not been a very forgiving summer when it comes to the heat, but what is of more concern to us now is the lack of rain. 

    Some are in the throes of a severe drought, others threatened soon to be put on the list.  If you are among them, I hope you have started to water because we are seeing some unfavorable conditions for newly planted trees, shrubs and perennials.

    So, how much is enough when it comes to water?
