  • Fighting for the three seed

    As we start the New Year the girls’ 31st district seeding picture is coming into focus... sort of.

    Gallatin County and Owen County both sit at 3-0. They have to play each other twice before we can determine who will be the top seed and who will be the second seed. It would take a collapse by one of these teams or a great second half of the season for one of the other three teams to keep these teams from that.

  • Make a New Year’s resolution to save more money

    Many people start the New Year with a financial resolution: to reduce debt, save money, spend money more wisely, increase their retirement savings or something similar.
    But despite good intentions, New Year’s resolutions often get abandoned. To stay on track, consider the following tips, which are designed to help you achieve your financial goals.
    Write down the goals and post them in a visible place to serve as a daily reminder. The fridge, bedroom mirror or your computer are good places to keep your goals in sight.

  • Don’t get too carried away while waiting for spring planting season

    With this cold weather, it is hard to believe that spring will be here in a few months, and now is a good time to start thinking about what to put in your gardens.
    This means that vegetable catalogs are coming in your mail. They have every vegetable you can think of, and you are thinking about all of the great vegetables to plant.
    You might also think that you need two of these, two of those, 10 of those, and so on.
