    Superior serving and play all around led the Harrison County Fillies varsity to a straight-set win over Fleming County Monday on the Hilltop.
    The Fillies won the first set 25-16 and came back after a slow start to smoke the Lady Panthers 25-13 in the second set.
    The first set was tight until Payton Hollar served seven straight points. Hollar’s pin-point serves took a close game and made it a breather.

  • I guess that I expect too much

    Exercise is good for you.  When one gets to be my age exercise is a must to keep all of your joints from locking up and making an immoveable object out of a person.
    Friday I went for a walk for my own physical well being out at Flat Run Veterans Park. It was good for my body but maybe not so much for my mind.  
    But maybe I expect too much.
