  • Anderson girls have good days on course

    Strong play from young players made for a solid week for the Anderson County High School girls’ golf team last week.

    Last Monday, Collins defeated the Lady Bearcats 202-215 in a match held on the narrow fairways of Shelbyville Country Club. Senior Cheyenne Searcy led Anderson with a 48 over the 9-hole competition, followed by Jaclynn Ruble’s 51.

  • Yes, there really are some bad ideas

    Saving the old Glensboro schoolhouse is something I would love to see happen, but not if it’s going to be done foolishly.

    That’s about the only way to describe an idea that was apparently the motivation for the fiscal court and school board to recently delay for 30 days the likelihood that the crumbling structure in front of the high school is doomed.

  • Now is time to prepare for winter

    Well, the rains have stopped. At least for several days. Just in time for cool nights and open windows. Now, if I can just get my carburetor adjusted on the tractor, I’ll only be in slightly high clover.

    Only two more Saturdays left at the produce stand and all I can think about is summer coming to a close. Soon, the weather won’t be nearly as favorable for outdoor chores. Now is the time to start preparing for that “opposite” season. I don’t even like to use the word.

  • Learning to live with bumble bees

    Bumble bees are social insects that nest in protected places: belowground in abandoned burrows of small mammals, in birdhouses, stuffing in abandoned furniture, or under piles of grass or rags in sheds or barns.

    They visit flowers to collect pollen to feed their larvae and nectar that provides them with energy.
