  • Boy Scout Troop 715 attended the Trailblazer District’s Winter Camp-o-ree in Carrollton Jan. 14-16. This year’s theme was Gold Rush Days and the boys got to participate in several events, including a quadathlon, featuring BB guns, archery, slingshots and horseshoes.
    The boys had to make their own sled, snow shoes and marshmallow guns prior to the campout. Each boy had to bring at least one nonperishable food item to be donated to the Northern Kentucky Food Bank/Mission to demonstrate scout-like kindness and helpfulness.


  • I have a handful of phalaenopsis about the house, and three of them have just begun to shoot up a bloom spike that, once in bloom (probably still about a month away), will bloom for months, if I keep them out of direct sunlight. One plant is like 10 fresh cut bouquets, and they are so delicately lovely you just can’t beat them as a nice Valentine gesture.
