EnCana comes to the Boys and Girls Club

Even though it was probably the hottest day of the year so far, EnCana Oil and Gas Company came to Hearne last Thursday to play some kick ball at the Boys and Girls Club in the Wood Field parking lot.  It was the EnCana anti-smoking kick ball game which EnCana won, 12 to 5, but probably because it recruited Boys and Girls Club members to play on its team as well.
Leading the EnCana team were Calvert standouts Xauvier Laury and James Lloyd, Boys and Girls Club members who can kick the ball.  Recently, Calvert club members have also joined the Boys and Girls Club traveling basketball team and played in the local Mark Flowers league, honing their skills for the 2013-2014 school season and making a successful traveling team
Despite the heat, both teams played vigorously and showed the value of lungs without tar build-up.

County says enjoy fireworks but use caution

In a special called meeting on Monday afternoon, Robertson County Commissioners reviewed the drought index and decided the county could make it another week without a ban on outside burning or on fireworks.  “Enjoy the 4th but use caution ” was Judge Jan Roe’s conclusion to the burn ban question.  The county’s drought index is only five points away from the burn ban threshold—a drought index of 575.  Right down, the County stands at 570, putting it near but not quite at the drought level that would necessitate a ban on outside burning,  
At an earlier meeting, the Commissioners voted to reserve the right to ban the use of certain types of fireworks but decided on Monday that it would go with its previously established threshold and not ban outside fires or fireworks at this time.
