  • Is there snow in our future? Be prepared

    We didn’t get that white Christmas I was pulling for this year, but weather forecasters are promising some snow for our future.
    I’m not nearly the fan I once was, but certainly I get excited about a forecast that could bring some snow our way.
    I like it best if it’s a day (or two) that I’m going to be home and not out on the roads. It’s great to cozy up in the house and watch it snow.
    Unfortunately, the biggest snowfalls generally happen during the week when most of us have some place we have to be.

  • Humane Society needs donations

    To the editor:
    I am writing to request that your readers remember the Humane Society of Harrison County in their end of the year giving. It is particularly important as 2012 draws to a close because we have been informed that due to budget cuts we will not be receiving the generous American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals grant that we were given in 2011. With the help of that grant the Humane Society of Harrison County was able to pay for or sponsor almost 400 spaying and neuters in 2012.
