  • On to winter sports

    Winter sports are upon us as basketball will get into the exhibition season, and wrestling will get into full swing now that football is over.  
    I thought that I would go over one more time the fall sports before we move on.  
    Boys soccer began the season with a new coach and a fast start.  
    As the season wore on, the boys’ struggled some but came on at the end to give a good accounting for themselves.  
    The Fillies soccer was supposed to be good and did not disappoint.

    Friday night was a first for both Western Hills and Harrison County. It was the first time that Western Hills defeated the Breds in football in 12 tries.  
    Friday’s game was closer in the first half than the experts had predicted as the Thorobreds offense picked up more yardage than in the two previous games combined.

    Coach Larry Kendall has his 2017-18 version of Harrison County Thorobreds working on improving on last year’s 6-26 record. The Breds were 38th District champions, however, with that record that is never easily achieved.  
    Kendall said he believes that Pendleton County will be the main competition in the 38th District again this year but also said that Nicholas County can never be counted out.

  • ‘Harvest Hymns’ and random thoughts

    The other day someone congratulated our features editor, Sarah Gatling, on her promotion, which was nice, except she didn’t get a promotion.
    Sarah said if she got a promotion she’d like to be promoted to potentate -- that sounds like a cool thing to be, she said.
    It reminded me of the hymn, “Crown Him With Many Crowns,” in which Jesus is called “the potentate of time,” and also reminded me that a few years ago, Sarah gave me a very old hymnal, copyrighted in 1924, called “Harvest Hymns.”
