  • Public banned from public meeting

  • Good show for lilacs this year

    Last year I spent some time rejuvenating, if you will, our ‘Miss Kim’ lilac.
    It had gone years without any maintenance pruning, just never making the priority list for chores out at the farm.
    Although “Miss Kim” is considered a dwarf variety and needs less maintenance, it was in need of some serious reduction.
    Last spring after the shrub finished blooming, I removed about one-third of the oldest wood, which resulted in new growth so this year the lilac looks great.

  • Financial disclosure a must for Commission on Aging

    No one is crying abuse of public trust, but there are some serious questions to be raised with the recent unraveling of finances for the Harrison County Commission on Aging.
    First, on March 21, board members were advised that the Senior Citizens Center was $21,000 in the red with monies to be paid to the state and federal government. That has escalated over the last month to a new deficit of $60,000.
    Now the question has become who is going to pay the $60,000?
    The bulk of that sum is penalties and interest.

    So what does that mean?
    It means a lot for many Harrison County families if you think about it.
    Baseball is now underway, so many families will be gathering nearly every weekend to watch their children and grandchildren make memories at River Road Park.
