  • Anything but ordinary
    It was 1985. 
  • Under cover
    Farmers will again be encouraged to put their fields to bed after harvest with a blanket of cover crops at an upcoming Jay County Soil and Water Conservation District field day. 
  • So far, harvest is a mixed bag
    Not great. But not a disaster. 
  • Screams help raise fire funds
    DUNKIRK — If it’s October, it must be time to scare people out of their wits. 
  • Stitching a plan
    As a neighbor to the south wraps up a quilt tour, plans are progressing for a Jay County version. 
  • Weather spells late harvest
    A cool, dry summer and wet conditions this fall haven't exactly made life easy on area farmers. 
  • Special pumpkins
    This time of year, most pumpkins decorate porches and yards until they are carved or eaten. 
  • Rescued trail teaches of trees
    For generations, the trails have been unofficial: Wandering routes along the Salamonie River on Portland's east side where kids could go exploring, play army, or simply get away from the noise of town.

    For 50 years, John Young has been gardening.
