    We had one of the worst thunderstorms and some of the most rain I can ever remember Sunday evening. We had little damage, blew some of our corn over in the garden, which Floyd was able to straighten up, and blew our tomato vine over we had staked near the back garage door, Floyd started to go out the door and there it was across the doorway. We were very disappointed as it was doing so well, I counted 25 or more tomatoes on it at one time. But we straightened it up, and believe it will live.

  • GIRLS' PREP GOLF: Region still chasing North's Gumm (7/31)

    The sides couldn’t be more opposite. Here was a young third grader playing in first Girls’ 3rd Region Tournament, tugging her pull cart holding her clubs behind her. Her drives weren’t long, but she compensated with precision irons and pinpoint putting. On the other was the two-time region champion who crushed the ball off the tee and had the short game to go with her long drives.

    The latter was former Meade County star Katie Fraley, who went on to win the region tournament and is the last area player to win four consecutive region championships.
