  • Rethinking the lawn

    I used to have a visceral response to lush spring grass; it gave me anxiety because I knew it was time to get on the Scag and start mowing (and usually the Scag would not start coming out of winter storage!)  
    This year I see the grass in a different way because it is potential pasture for our growing herd of sheep.  
    We use moveable, electrified fence and rotational grazing methods to keep the pasture and the herd healthy so the more grass I have the better. It is a liberating feeling not worrying about getting the grass mowed.

    After the losses at the Doc Morris Invitational, the Harrison County Thorobreds found themselves in a three-game tailspin.

    Noah Mitchell walked followed by singles by John King and Jordan Martin and it was 1-0 in favor of the Breds.

  • What to do about security at athletic events

    Safety has long been a concern of mine in large crowds, which would include athletic events, concerts, etc.
    My original concerns began way back after the Beverly Hills Supper Club fire and the deaths associated with that disaster.  
    Patti and I had been there to see The Lettermen, yes, the Lettermen, not long before the fire and were actually discussing going back that very day with Tony and Mary Beth Peddicord, who lived above us at one time on Pleasant Street.
