  • Singing songs of peace

    One of my favorite parts of Christmas is attending the Christmas Eve service at my church.
    With the lights dimmed, candles soften the sanctuary, soften faces, quiet the hearts of the people who have come.
    Some come harried and hassled. Others come burdened and broken. All come seeking something, seeking peace.
    At my church, it’s our tradition on Christmas Eve to sing of peace and silence. As we hold candles we sing, “Peace, peace, peace on earth and good will to all.”

  • Breds totally dominate Flyers Tuesday, 95-52

    After a six-to-six tie early in the game, the Harrison County Thorobreds ran off a 17-to-four run on the way to a 95-52 rout of Franklin County Tuesday night in Cynthiana.  
    The Thorobreds’ depth and pressure defense was too much for the Flyers as the Breds led 23-10 at the end of the first period.
    It only got worse for Franklin County as Harrison County outscored them to start the second period by a 13-to-five margin in the first four minutes of the stanza and by halftime the score doubled at 46-23.  

  • Second half run boosts Dixie over Fillies Saturday night

    The Dixie Heights Lady Colonels picked up their second victory of the year Saturday night as they used an 18-2 run in the third and fourth periods to defeat the Harrison County Fillies 56-46.  
    The 0-6 Fillies took an eight-point halftime lead into the third period but were outscored 19-6 in that period to lose the lead and eventually the ball game.
    The game was one of two entirely different halves except for one constant for the Fillies. That was one of committing too many fouls.

  • I don’t understand the venom

    The terrible tragedy at Newtown, Conn., on Friday morning brings to light a sickness in America that is, to me, unexplainable.  
    I believe one way to discourage this type of behavior is to not give any notoriety to the perpetrator, which is why I will not mention a name nor would I speak it if asked.  
    I have my own beliefs about how gun control will not help since then only the criminals would have the guns, but this is not the time for that.
