  • It’s never too early to start selecting seeds

    Happy New Year. I don’t know about you all, but I’m feeling all warm and fuzzy.
    It’s primarily because I got lots of warm stuff for Christmas, but other things, too. I received numerous pictures of family and friends along with letters and messages catching me up on their lives. What a great way to start 2012. Now, if only I can remember to write it.

  • City works to nail down travel policy

    The honor system is the only current city policy available when it comes to travel and training reimbursements for city employees.
    Auditor Thomas Smith of the downtown accounting firm Farmer and Humble had only one suggestion for the city council following its 2010-2011 fiscal year audit: take a closer look at the city’s spending in travel and training.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lady Bearcats third in Mercer County tournament
