  • Bowlers a mix of veterans and youth

    The Harrison County Bowling Team hit the lanes in late October with a veteran girls’ team and a boys’ team full of youth. Coaches Kurt Burgan, Bonnie Parks and Johnny Curtis have several bowlers on both squads who have the potential to bowl 200-plus games on a regular basis, but some still lack the experience in competitive bowling.

    The girls are led by seniors Ashley Hatfield and Amanda Gaunce, who are both veterans of state tournament bowling. 

    According to Burgan, they are leaders of the team and are both very capable of bowling 200-plus games.

  • Predictions for winter, does the deer rut count?

    a theory about predicting the severity of winter weather.

    I have a wait-and-see attitude, but for fun, let’s consider some of the natural predictors that may or may not be of sound authority.

    The woolly worm is a favorite and the folklore says that winter will be a long cold one if they are predominately black and they start moving about before the first hard frost. 

    These seem ominous: If there are three severe fogs in June and July it means an early snow; and for every fog in August there will be a corresponding snow in winter.
