Touchdown Jesus!

A few bits of mid-week information:

- So, that was an interesting storm last night.

It scared my dog into the depths of her crate and apparently chased another blogger who shall remain nameless into his basement. Turned on the TV last night just as the girth of the red radar storm was passing through Ft. Thomas and I gotta say it was a bit uneasy hearing the sirens from what seemed to be right outside my bedroom window.

Sadly, Touchdown Jesus in Monroe was an unfortunate casualty. However, it did make national news. Round 2 is supposed to be tonight.

-The Fort Thomas Garden Tour has been rescheduled for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 19.

The tour, which was originally scheduled for Saturday, June 12, was canceled because of heavy storms. Tickets will be on sale in front of the city building at 130 North Fort Thomas Ave. I'm glad that the city went ahead and rescheduled unlike the Spruce up for Spring event that was canceled in April.

I may be biased, but there is no way that my mother's garden is not one of the nicer flower patches in our great city. Whoever is in charge of booking the tour needs to get her on the route next year.

- And via Mike Dyer of the Enquirer sports blog, Highlands will play on Fox Sports Ohio this fall at Ryle on October 28. Should be another chance to show why Highlands is a perennial power in football to a greater audience.

And to help recruiting. (I kid, I kid).

- Finally, before the rain gets here, meet The Fort Thomas Running Club tonight at 6:00 across from Highlands. Should be nice and torrid. Hopefully Recorder writer and friend of Fort Thomas Matters, Amanda Joering Alley is there tonight!


  1. Awwww! Thanks for the shout-out Mark! It is Fort Thomas residents like you that made me want to move to this city! I enjoyed coming out (even though I couldn't stay to run this time) and meeting you and your wife, as well as the rest of the group! I will definitely be joining you guys one of these days!

  2. The Garden Tour is sponsored by The Fort Thomas Forest Conservancy (not The City). Don't miss your chance to see these seven spectacular Fort Thomas gardens! Lunch specials at local eateries for ticket holders.

  3. Is there a link or any other information you can provide, Teresa? I'd love to know more.
