  • Anthology of Accidents

    I have an amazing talent to find myself entwined in some preposterous situations. I’ve been entangled in a maelstrom of the absurd for as long as I can remember. I’ve been sucked under a playground merry-go-round. A footrace across a parking lot with my siblings concluded in a spectacular crash. My brakes failed and I plummeted headlong into a landscaped median. In its defense, the median had resided in that spot for years and was in no way responsible for my plunge into bruised humiliation.

  • Don't forget sprayer maintenance during spring cleaning

    Remember to include sprayer maintenance in your spring-cleaning tasks. Maintenance now will ensure that your spray equipment is ready for the planting season, and save you time and money down the road.

  • New coach, young team ready to start the season

    Kala Judy steps into her first season as a high school varsity softball coach with high hopes in the potential she sees in a young, but determined Lady Raiders team. The 2018 edition of the Lady Raiders lacks one thing their predecessors enjoyed – seniors.

    “We actually do not have any seniors on the roster this year and only three juniors,” Judy said. “The rest are underclassmen – even a handful of middle schoolers. We are basically rebuilding the team after losing so many senior starters last year.”
