  • 1,864 reminders of why Christ came to this world

    They’re called Crosses of Mercy, three tall crosses — two pale blue and one gold — planted across at least 29 states and Washington, D.C., plus Zambia and the Philippines.
    Where I live in Florida, I’ve seen several sets of them and I’ve always wondered about them since they don’t seem to be connected to any one church. They’re usually out in the middle of nowhere, randomly planted on the highway.

  • Thorobreds in District final Wednesday

    The Harrison County Thorobreds made quick work of the Deming Black Devils, 14-2, in five innings Monday night in the district opener.  
    Deming scored its two runs in the top of the first on a two-run double by Jonathan Pilosky after a single and a walk had runners on first and third.  
    Sophomore John King started the game for Harrison County on the mound settling down after this inning to pitch a scoreless second inning.  
    In his two innings of work, King walked two, gave up the two runs, and struck out two.

    Change is inevitable as time never stops and so the sports scene in Harrison County is changing.

  • Farms need kids like the world needs food

    Silly lawmakers, don’t they know that agriculture is just as much for kids as it is for adults?
    This past Monday, a few of my coworkers came to my office  to ask me what I thought of a proposed law that was trying to be past, which would basically eliminate child help on the farms.
    After a few choice words slipping from my mouth, which I directed toward any person who would even toy with such an idea, I began to think how I would have turned out minus the farm background.
