  • Changes in store for middle school athletics

    The Harrison County Middle School has gone through a restructuring at the top and in the eighth grade football program.  
    Bob Ruth has been replaced by Joshua Valentine as the athletic director for the many programs offered for the sixth through eighth grade students.  
    The eighth grade football program is also changing completely as Jim Carr left to become the head varsity coach and his long-time aide, Mark Jenkins, is unable to continue as assistant.  

  • Can we be too concerned about concussions?

    Last week’s incident in major league baseball where the bat broke when the batter swung and the end hit the umpire brought the concussion issue to mind.  
    The umpire was on the ground for several minutes and speculation about his return ever was discussed around baseball “talk” radio.  
    It is a scary situation though one that does not happen often, thankfully.
    However, I did see an umpire in a Little League game at River Road Park take a pitch in the ear the other night when the ball bounced off the hard ground.
