  • Tips for managing diseases of tobacco transplants

    SCC Sports Information

    Matt Stearsman, assistant coach to J.T. Burton for the men’s basketball team at St. Catharine College, made a pre-season prediction that if the Patriots stayed healthy they could find themselves among the leaders of the perennially powerful Mid-South Conference. That prognostication may have seemed a bit bold after last season when the Patriots completed their first NAIA season with a 5-24 record that included a 1-11 conference slate.

  • Test old seeds before buying new ones

    Every good gardener has noticed that seed catalogs are continually showing up in their mailboxes and seed and garden hardware are in full display at garden centers and department stores.  Many of you are like me, you have seeds left from last year and an eye for more plants than your garden can hold.  Don’t buy new seeds just yet.  There is a good chance that your old seeds will still germinate even if they were stored in the cupboard.  Most vegetable and flower seeds are still viable after several years.

    Hart County wanted to spoil the night for the Washington County Commanders last Thursday night, but that’s just not how it worked out for the Raiders. With seconds to go, WC senior Joseph Hamilton hit a clutch three-point shot to tie the score and send the game to overtime.

    But one OT wasn’t enough to settle this battle, as the Commanders forged ahead in the second OT and came away with a 59-54 road win in Munfordville.

    The Washington County Commanderettes got a big win against Campbellsville last week, beating the Lady Eagles 52-32.

    Freshman Kenya Turner led WC with 15 points, followed by sophomore Shay Yocum with 13.

  • County scraps bulky item pick-up

    It worked so well last year that the Washington County Fiscal Court is once again scrapping the idea of a county-wide clean-up in favor of allowing county residents to dump bulky items at the county’s transfer station for free. The free drop-off takes effect on March 1 and will run through Sept. 1. This is for residential items only, no tires or commercial debris will be allowed to dump free of charge. Contractors will still be able to dump CD&D waste for the normal fee.
