  • 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.

    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.

  • Lady Braves fall to district foes Walton, Simon Kenton

     A week that started with a renewed spirit and a sense of determination spiraled into a sea of lost opportunities and a buzz saw in the end.
    The Grant County Lady Braves were looking forward to their first meeting of the season against their district rival Walton Verona on Jan. 8 in Dry Ridge.

    The game didn’t start out as planned by the Braves as they fell behind early because of turnovers and some good shooting by the Lady Bearcats.
    As the first quarter came to an end, the Braves luckily were only down 18-13.
