  • A lesson from the mountain

    Easter is just around the corner.
    Did you know that Easter is on April Fool’s Day this year?
    It is quite the appropriate day for Easter!
    On what we now call Good Friday, those who opposed Jesus managed to silence him for good.
    They nailed him to a cross and let him die.
    A bystander took his body and buried it.
    The deed was done.
    The Man was dead, and his disciples were hiding in silence.
    Then came Sunday, and the silence was shattered.
    The tomb in which Jesus had been buried was empty.

  • Are you prepared for weeds this spring?

    The grasses are starting to green up which means spring is here. However, along with the grasses, weeds will be starting to show up in fields, gardens and lawns. Weeds can play havoc from causing issues with livestock to medical issues for people, and weeds can take over crop fields.
    From dandelions to poison hemlock, weeds can come in many shapes and colors, and many times we don’t realize what we have, in many cases, certain weeds mimic harmless flowers.
    Now, you might be asking, “How do I remove weeds from my land?” My response will be, “What weed to you have?”

  • Check your tax withholding

    You may have noticed an increase in your take-home pay recently due to the tax cuts and jobs act passed by Congress in December.
    Now, you need to determine how that will affect you when it comes time to file taxes next year.
    The IRS has released a new withholding calculator to help you determine whether to change your withholding status on your W-4 to reflect these changes to the tax law.
    Everyone is encouraged to check their withholding status, but it is particularly important for the following individuals:
    • Two-income families.

  • HCHS march to region tops hoops preview


    The highlight of the 2017-18 basketball season came near the end when Henry County and Carroll County played a thrilling double-overtime contest that saw the Wildcats pull out a 78-74 win to advance to the district championship game and earn a spot in the regional tournament.

    It was that kind of season for the Wildcats. 

  • Warming up to spring sports season

     It felt like a long winter to me. It wasn’t particularly snowy and while we had a few cold snaps, it wasn’t particularly cold; it was just long this year. 

    Whatever the reason, I am ready for spring and all that it brings in the way of outdoor activities. 

    For me, that is covering high school softball, baseball and track and riding my bike around the county.

  • New fishing regulations for 2018 impact local lakes

     A reduction in the statewide daily creel limit from 30 fish to 20 fish for crappie highlights the new fishing regulations for 2018. The regulations go into effect March 1.

  • Teachers have enough to do in school without packing

    In years past, I was “one of those people” who didn’t like guns. I still don’t, but after meeting my husband — he grew up as an Indiana farm boy — I understand why people have them.
    Ron and his father used a rifle to shoot at “varmints” that got into the family garden and the crops.
    The rifle also served as protection against home invaders because they lived in an isolated area.
    Ron’s extended family also hunt deer, something I found appalling until I learned how many families use deer as their only meat for the year.
