  • ‘Football is a rough game’

    Kentucky is No. 1 and well deserving of the top spot. Okay, I got that over with.

    I watched the Vikings give the game to the Saints Sunday night with my wife and answered many interesting questions. Most of them concern Brett Favre and why he was getting hammered on almost every pass in the second half. 

    Can they do that? 

    Why does he stay in there and let them knock him down? 

    Peyton Manning ducks down to the ground when he sees them coming, why doesn’t Favre?

  • Fillies split games over weekend

    Harrison County’s Fillies played perhaps their best game of the year Friday night, but came away on the short end of the score at Campbell County. 

    The Lady Camels, who are thought to be a top four team in the region, could never pull away and edged the Fillies 63-55. 

    Harrison County trailed by six at the end of the first period but a balanced attack for the most part brought the Fillies back in the second. At the half, the game was knotted at 23.

  • ‘Those who look up, find a way out’

    I have a friend who loves bees.

    Last week she brought me to her secret place, a trail in a wooded area in a local park. Located on the trail is my friend’s bee tree.

    My friend comes to this secret place often. She said she goes there to talk to God, since how can you help but talk to him surrounded by all that nature?

    “Just look up at the canopy of trees!” she said as we walked.
