  • Sports getting back to sanity

    The World Cup is finally over and I don’t know who won. I know who lost or at least some who lost. 

    The guy formally known as the savior of Cleveland finally decided who was going to have the chance to pay him obscene and ridiculous amounts of money to wear short pants, so that charade is over. 

    Now we can get on to what is important, baseball and the upcoming football season.  Before we do though, I want to comment on some of the happenings in the last few weeks in sports.

    First, the World Cup.

  • Dividing plants improves health, bloom

    We have all asked the question “why hasn’t my plant bloomed?”

    Sometimes the answer is as simple as not enough sunlight, not old enough, not cold enough or hot enough, etc. 

    In fact, it could be as simple as a little digging and dividing for some renewed blooming attitude.

    For most of my herbaceous perennials I wait until early fall to do a good portion of my digging and dividing.

  • All stars end season in Winchester and Harrodsburg

    The Harrison County Little League All Stars ended their seasons this past week as both the 9-year-olds’ team and the 11-year-olds’ team, with a few 10 year olds, lost.

    The 9-year-olds’ team played in Winchester facing teams of 10-year-olds and lost three of four games. They started with a 10-6 loss on Monday to Richmond, but followed with a 10-9 win over Mercer County on Wednesday. 

    They lost a heart breaker on Thursday to Lexington Eastern National by a 10-8 count after their defense had an inning-long collapse.

  • Akin promises a hard-working team

    Piper Lindsey Akin was named the new head coach of the Harrison County Fillies basketball program last Tuesday afternoon. 

    Akin, a 2004 graduate of Barren County High School and a 2008 graduate of Western Kentucky University, was selected over several candidates including former Harrison County basketball players Dennis Custard and Kim Furnish. 

    This will be Akin’s first head coaching job as she served for one year at Apollo in Owensboro in the 2008-09 season as freshman and junior varsity coach as well as varsity assistant. 

  • ‘Will we ever truly learn?’

    This morning I noticed a teeny frog hopping around my bathroom.

    My first thought — I hope my husband doesn’t see it because he’ll give me that I-told-you-to-keep-the-door-shut look.

    My second thought, however — You poor, dumb frog, so teeny. You’re probably just a baby and I don’t have any froggy food in my house and if you don’t get accidentally stepped on, you’ll surely die from hunger unless you find your way back outside.

  • HCHS boys’ soccer cautiously optimistic for 2010 season
