  • Two killed in Thursday morning wreck

    A Harrison County man and woman are dead following an early morning car accident Thursday.

    Harrison County Sheriff Bruce Hampton has released the name of the female  driver involved in the two-car collision on US 62 West near Switzer Pike.

    Law enforcement officials have yet to release the name of the male driver.

    Hampton said his department continues to work with Georgetown police to identify the body.

  • Purslane turns out to be a tasty weed

    I have long understood that purslane could be used in salads or soups, but have never made much of an effort to harvest and devise a kitchen plan until know. 

    I had this fabulous stand of the weed in my kitchen garden after I pulled the old greens that bolted from the summer heat. It made perfect sense to let it grow and flourish because no lettuce seed would be germinating in this heat and I knew that this garden was free from any herbicides.

    So, the purslane established and I have turned young and old alike onto its culinary virtues.

  • Fillies Volleyball opens season with loss to Powell Co.

    The Harrison County Fillies dropped a hard fought match Monday night to the Lady Pirates of Powell County, two games to one. 

    Powell County returned seven seniors and eight juniors from last year’s 17-9 squad and took revenge for the 2-0 loss handed them in the 2009 season by the Fillies.
