  • Special wheelchair needed for 7-foot tall man

    “Everybody knows me,” George says with a smile that makes the blue of his eyes sparkle.

    At 7-feet tall, George Willen barely fits into the wheelchair he depends on for his mobility. He suffers from cellulitis but is more restricted by complications that have resulted from his unusual height.

    He is a resident of Parkside Manor where he can most always be found sitting in his wheelchair in the parking lot waving at passersby on Oddville Avenue or on the facility’s expansive porch.

  • Balanced attack leads Breds past Pendleton

    When Aaron Stepp took the reins of the Harrison County Thorobreds football program, his reputation preceded him. He had developed one of the most prolific passing attacks in the state while at Clay County.

  • Gossamer strings for spider flight

    It occurred to me the other day that I have not seen as many intricate spider webs this fall at the farm. I like my spiders, as long as they are not lurking on my shoulder or in my bed. I enjoy seeing them in the garden or in the corner of a window where we can watch their work from indoors.  Maybe I am not looking closely enough; perhaps the weather has made them act differently this year?
