The boxes were ready for pickup on Friday, Dec. 19, and each box was numbered by how many family members were in the household. Donated bags of candy and toys were also given out.
    Participating churches in Cynthiana and Harrison County were given a specific food item to collect. Money was also donated for the purchase of turkeys. The project was sponsored by the Harrison County Food Pantry.

    Dear Santa,

  • Winter interest in fruit and foliage

    I don’t mind a gloomy day here or there, I actually find them somewhat restorative.  Too many in a row, though, can be sort of depressing.  So, when the winter sky moves in I search out the plants in the landscape that have color.
    We all say we want winter interest, but sometimes we forget about it once spring rolls around and we get excited about a new season.  
    Have you selected things that will capture your eye in January?  
    Look out the window and tell yourself what you see and then take some notes.
