  • Time is truly how to say ‘I love you’

    Isn’t it amazing how our significant others sometimes put their agendas aside to put a smile on our face?
    This week is, if you ask me, the biggest excuse for couples to blow money on one another that should be saved.
    Valentine’s Day. I never really understood it and now that I am married I have grown to dislike it.
    For the record, my wife does not require me to purchase a dozen roses and chocolate-covered strawberries.
    Instead, she gets a bigger kick out of me leaving her alone to watch her reality television for the night.

  • What, me willing?

    Last week we had communion at my church, and I didn’t get to be a server.
    I’m not sure why not, although I’m pretty sure it was nothing personal. It’s highly unlikely that the person who makes the list up looked at my name and thought, “We don’t like her anymore. Ha ha ha.”
    Whatever the reason, I didn’t make the servers’ list for that week.
    When I got the email news that I had been cut, I was shocked. After all, I’m the Saturday-night-grape-juice/bread-over-on-the-left-side-of-the-sanctuary girl!

  • I can make anyone love Brussels sprouts

    Brussels sprouts need a PR make-over, no one seems to like them. Old varieties have been greatly improved from those forced on you as a child.  
    Equally, cooking methods probably can stand some updating from the warm, mushy, bitter Barbie-doll-sized cabbage; don’t boil them to death, try instead some quick roasting underneath the broiler.

  • Breds finish at home with 71-58 win over Frankfort

    The last home game for the Harrison County Thorobreds Tuesday night was a great way to close out the season on the Hilltop.  
    A quick and athletic Frankfort Panthers squad provided the opposition and though the Breds never trailed, the Panthers never quit.  
    The Thorobreds hit their first four attempts from the field as they raced out to a 27-13 lead by the end of the first session.  
    Caleb Ford had 12 of his game-high 25 points in this opening period.  

  • Breds win Senior Night battle with Mason County in double OT

    Frankie Valli of Four Seasons fame sang a song in the late 60s or early 70s that had the lyric “Oh What a Night,” which describes the weekend for the Harrison County Thorobreds.  
    First the junior varsity beat Mason County with a come-from-behind overtime win, 46-42. Next, the varsity Breds went to two overtimes to beat Mason County, 53-51, for the first regular season win over the Royals in 16 years. Then on Saturday, the Thorobreds beat Paul Laurence Dunbar 62-61 in the Shoot for the Cure Classic at Nicholas County.
