    But the first period gave no indication that the Lady Cats would get their first district win of the season as they fell behind 12-3.

  • Our local churches are treasures in plain sight

    Whatever our economic status, we all have treasures — items from which we will be parted only as a last resort.
    As I look around the room in which I am writing this article, I see books. Lots of books.
    Books are among my most prized possessions.
    Should I some day have to downsize and not have room for them all, I already know there are some books from which I will not be parted.
    They will go with me even if I have to stack them on my bed.
    Some things are treasures because of what they are.
    Others are prized because of who gave them to us and/or what they represent.

    This could become a reflex we use to reach our goals. And a new year is a great time for a fresh beginning to get rid of habits that either hold us back or harm others.
    I don’t usually make resolutions, but this year, I’ve created a laundry list of goals for 2018.

  • Get more from pastures with rotational grazing

    Since I have started working in Henry County and learning the county, one thing is always very prominent with the farmers here. They are very passionate about their pastures and hay, and on many days, I will receive forage questions for eight straight hours.
    I can recommend one management practice that’s not widely used, but can help increase pasture forage yields. That is rotational grazing.
