    The Harrison County Fillies soccer team got off to a rough start Saturday when they lost a scrimmage at Pendleton County to Holy Cross of Covington, 3-1.  
    The loss wasn’t the rough part though. Learning that senior Taylor Landrum will be out for the biggest part of the season with ACL surgery was certainly a blow to the squad.  
    Amelia Bolin, who was last season’s leader in assists and goals scored, also sat out the scrimmage with an injured knee.

  • Public opinion carries no weight in matters of the soul

    I recently attended a birthday party.
    As I was talking to a young girl, I soon learned she had gotten in trouble with her mom because of a Facebook comment she had posted.
    As I listened to her, the young lady was not too happy about her mom’s decision to make her stay off Facebook.
    I also learned the facts behind the problem, I explained to her why her mom was right and why she needed to respect that.
    My advice didn’t go over very well at all.
