  • Farmers’ Market educational meeting set

    The Harrison County Farmers’ Market committee will offer an educational meeting discussing early spring crops including cole crop production.  The meeting will take place Thursday, Jan. 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the Harrison County Extension Office.
    Producers usually question the time of plant and what the expected maturity date would be. This meeting will discuss these matters and will also include seed and plant selection for your garden.

  • Winter perennials have summer-like foliage

    Nonetheless, children and adults both have their ways of trying to drop the hint of non-compliance.

  • If the lights go out

    If you lose electrical service during the winter, follow these tips:
    • Call your utility company first to report the power outage and determine area repair schedules. Turn off or unplug lights, appliances, and furnace to prevent a circuit overload when service is restored. Leave one light on to indicate power has been restored.
    • To help prevent freezing pipes, turn the water off to your home or turn on faucets slightly. Running water will not freeze as quickly.
    • Protect yourself from carbon monoxide poisoning:
