  • Senior Citizens Center finances strapped by repairs

    By Kristie Hamon, Summer intern
    So far, 2012 hasn’t been a good year for the Harrison County Senior Citizens Center.
    The Senior Citizens Center faced hard times in January when temperatures dropped and the sprinkler system got water in it and flooded the entire front entrance of the center. And, that was just the beginning of their problems.
    Tracy Whitaker, director of the senior citizens center, said that because of a contract the center signed on the lease, they have to take care of all maintenance and insurance problems on their own.

  • A great idea for do-it- yourselfers

    (SPM Wire) Warm weather is here! And for do-it-yourselfers this means it’s time to get cracking on home renovations. If you’re planning a project that requires lumber, consider forgoing newly cut wood for something with a bit more history.
    “Salvaged lumber is old growth wood, which means it’s stronger, has tighter grains, and looks better than newer wood,” says Merritt Fine, owner of M. Fine Lumber Company in New York City, which has been reclaiming lumber from demolition sites for 75 years.

  • Breds end baseball season with loss in region championship

    “When you come right down to it, you have to get hits,” bemoaned Coach Mac Whitaker. “Brossart’s key guys got hits and ours didn’t.”  
    That about summed up the feelings for the Hall of Fame coach the day after the Breds dropped a controversial loss to the Mustangs of Bishop Brossart in the championship game of the 10th Region.

  • A perfect season

    The recent events on the baseball field bring to mind one particular saying or remark that my dad said frequently.  I will tell you what it was later on in the article.
    The conclusion of the Harrison County versus Bishop Brossart game was less than desirable for the Harrison County fans who had hopes of returning after a one-year absence to the state finals.  
    I was not in attendance but have had several first-hand accounts of what happened including talking with the main man, Mac Whitaker.

  • A day of washing

    It was a good day for a baptism, a warm Wednesday evening about two years ago.
    Her name was Minnie and she lived by a lake. She had invited her Methodist pastor and all her friends to come to her baptism, right there at the lake where she lived.
    She joked that she had a pile of rocks at the water’s edge to throw at the alligators in case they got too curious or hungry.
    Thankfully, she didn’t need them.
