  • Long drinks better than short for thirsty plants

    Caliente. Heiss. Chaud. Het.
    Those are just a few other words that mean hot in Spanish, German. French and Norwegian (I couldn’t resist).
    I just thought you’d like a few other terms to use while we’re sweating bullets in this heat. Even I think it’s hot, and that takes some doing.

  • Program to teach diabetics to take control

    Approximately 3.8 percent of the residents of Anderson County have been diagnosed with diabetes.
    The national average is 7.8 percent. That makes Anderson County look good.
    However, if you or your loved one has diabetes, then it doesn’t matter what the percentages are. It’s still a concern for you.
    Whether you have been recently diagnosed or have had diabetes for a long time, the 12-week class on Taking Ownership of Your Diabetes will help you learn about living with and managing diabetes.

  • Community outpouring for Cody Ramsey was tremendous

    To the editor:
    I would like to thank so many of you in this community for the outpouring of support that was offered to the family of Cody Ramsey during the difficult and trying time following his death.
    It was refreshing to see the small-town values that still exist within our growing community.
    Brian Ritchie was so caring and professional and he, along with his staff, did an outstanding job with the visitation, funeral services and arrangements for Cody. Death is never easy for a family, but a sudden death can be overwhelming for a family.
