  • Harrison Co. Tire will dispose of vehicle fluids properly

    With winter creeping its head around the corner, a reminder to all drivers who have or will be winterizing their vehicles to be sure to dispose of all vehicle fluids safely.
    According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, only one-third of the do-it-yourself oil changes result in the proper disposal of old oil from vehicles.
    Due to the number of lakes, creeks and rivers flowing through Harrison County, it is clear and evident where all of the excess vehicle fluids go unless properly disposed.

  • Remembering those who payed the most during WWII

    The Harrison County courthouse lawn is dotted with monuments reminding us of the soldiers who have fought and died for our freedoms.
    Words like valor, bravery, courage, true grit and heroism are used to describe their service. They seem like such small words for the huge sacrifice they and their families made for the rest of us.
    This year’s Veterans’ Day program at Battle Grove Cemetery honors the men from Harrison County who died during World War II. There are 48 of them.

  • Community getting in gear for seasons

    Since writing for the paper, every other week I sit in front of my computer pondering the events that have taken place recently and try to come up with a column.
    However, there has been so much that has gone on and will be going on that I am finding it too difficult to narrow my column down to just one story idea.
    So, I thought a general overview of ideas may be the best avenue for this week’s column.
    First of all, 94.5 FM has broken the ice. Yes, that’s right, Christmas carols are on the air for another month and a half.
