  • Woes continue for Lady Braves

    The slump continued for the Grant County Lady Braves this past week as they dropped a pair of games.
    In both cases, the team had a lead and let it slip away.
    The Lady Braves traveled to Paris Jan. 12 to play the Bourbon County Lady Colonels.
    The game was close all the way through with the lead changing hands multiple times.
    Rebounds were the determining factor in the game, as the Lady Colonels pulled down 37 to the Braves 23. This allowed the Colonels to have more second and third chance points.

  • Succulents for indoor bloom

    Plant collectors have long appreciated orchids and African violets for their winter bloom cycle.  I have amassed a collection of both and they help me get through the winter with their colorful interest. But violets and orchids are not the only classes of plants that can deliver in the winter; think succulents.

  • RESTART

    There is just something about the start of a new year that gives us the feeling of a fresh start and a new beginning. There really is no difference between Dec. 31 and Jan. 1. Nothing profound occurs at midnight on Dec. 31. If a Christian determines to make a New Year’s resolution, what kind of resolution should he or she make?
    Many individuals’ resolutions are commitments to stop doing something. Many commit to quit smoking, stop drinking, quit spending so much money, not spend so much time apart from their families, etc.
