  • Fillies JV win over West Florida, 12-8

    Lucinda Boyers drove in six runs with a four hits in five at bats game to lead the Harrison County junior varsity Fillies over West Florida 12-8 in Pensacola, Fla., Tuesday night.  

  • First time gardener, plan a vegetable plot

    If you have never had a vegetable garden before, this year is the year to do it.
    Grocery prices are encouragement enough; gas prices are high and grain reserves low so food prices won’t be coming down anytime soon. Plus, growing your own provides a degree of satisfaction that is hard to come by otherwise.

  • Thorobreds lose two in early week action in Florida

    The Harrison County Thorobreds gave a game away and lost another in the first games of the season in Florida this week.

  • Harrison County’s tennis team greets many new players

    Harrison County graduated the No. 1 Fillies doubles team in Polly Whalen and Jacqueline Young, the No. 1 Thorobreds singles player in Ross Smith and one half of the Breds No. 1 doubles team in Kalen Woosley.  
    The other half of that No. 1 doubles team, junior Ben McDonald, moved away so there are several holes to fill for second year coach Kara Mattox.  
    However, given these circumstances, the cupboard is far from bare.  

  • Florida trip entertaining but very busy

    The weather is wonderful and the hotel is great, but there is not a lot of time to relax and enjoy it.  
    Four grandchildren and a bunch of ball games does not allow for much “free” time.  
    I’m not complaining mind you, but when I am this busy little things set me off.  
    I am currently having problems with my iphone connection, which causes sending video issues and double and triple work, which sets me off.  

  • What saves you from being handed a ticket to Hell?

    A few weeks ago I got a letter from a woman in Louisiana who had read one of my books.
    Sometimes when you write books people think you know stuff, that you have special wisdom and answers to their problems.
    I’ll let you in on a secret: We don’t, at least I don’t. I can put words together and make them sound pretty and sometimes I have a thought or two that may or may not be helpful to some people, but mostly I think that I don’t.

  • Thorobreds’ strength is depth in both field and running events

    When the football season was about half over, Harrison County Track Coach Robert Walker was a little down.  
    He had just witnessed half of his vaunted 400m relay team go down with knee injuries as Cory Nichols and Caleb Reeder were hurt during the pigskin season.  
    Couple this with the concern that club soccer might also take Josh Young and Ben Anness, the young and hard working talent, Walker was concerned about what the season might bring.
