  • Some plants like it wet

    There are some plants that demand good drainage:  taxus, coreopsis, gaillardia and penstemon, to name a few.  I have lost them all because they were poorly sited in the garden but now that I know where water is slow to drain I know where to plant those trees, shrubs and perennials that like wet environments.  There is an upside to poor drainage for some plants, just be sure that water is available when Mother Nature doesn’t deliver.

  • Hampton says serving county for six terms was privilege

    By Josh Shepherd, News writer
    The re-match between Shain Stephens and incumbent Harrison County Sheriff Bruce Hampton once again came down to a narrow margin of victory. This time, however, Stephens came out on the winning side of the race, unseating Hampton by a margin of 738 votes in Tuesday’s primary election.
    Hampton’s service as Harrison County Sheriff has run six straight terms in office. After 24 years in the office and  36 total years in law enforcement, Hampton expressed few regrets in the final results.
