  • Little League season: A time for fun at the ballpark

    Saturday marks the beginning of the 2010 Little League season in Harrison County at the River Road Park. All teams are scheduled to play and, weather permitting, will start the season off with a bang. 

    I will be watching with great interest the plight of the Auto Systems team since our oldest grandson, Hayden is playing on that team.

    The other two grandsons are in coach pitch so that too will be a regular destination.  That is unless the princess CeCe decides that we don’t need to go, but that too is another story.

  • Too much mulch detrimental to trees

    Driving into town the other day I was depressed about how this mulch thing has really gotten out of hand.  Every tree looked like a telephone pole sticking out of a rounded mound or orange-looking mulch. 

    All I could think was “poor trees.” I keep writing about it, but is doesn’t seem people are getting the message that too much mulch is a bad thing. 

    I know, some people have been liberated, but we still have some more work to do.  The bottom line: Two inches of coarse mulch that is not piled around the trunk.

  • Newberry is honest, impartial, will be fair as district judge

    To the editor:

    There is only one candidate to endorse for the position of district court judge and that is Peter Newberry. He has over 20 years of legal experience as a trial attorney. He is a very honest and impartial person and believes that every person should have a fair trial. He believes in helping one another and has been very successful with bike programs for two counties that include all age groups. He is a major player in Relay for Life, Champions for a Drug-Free Harrison County and many worthwhile organizations.
