Each legislative session essentially has two distinct periods, with the first dedicated to the House and Senate setting their respective agendas and the second, much shorter one seeing where both sides can find common ground.
It is too soon to say what ultimately will cross the finish line, but this week is when most of those decisions will be made. It promises to be a busy time.

The 2010-11 Fillies season ended Tuesday night as the Montgomery County Lady Indians defeated Harrison County 65-54 in the 10th Region Tournament.
The Fillies never led in the game, which had two ties in the first quarter, but it was far from being an easy night for the Lady Indians.
It was a night of runs as each team had scoring streaks that either kept the other team at bay or cut into a big lead to make a close game.
Pendleton County led for one tenth of one second Friday night, but that was enough to defeat the Harrison County Thorobreds in the final game of the 38th District Tournament 61-60.
The Thorobreds dominated the game until the middle of the fourth quarter, leading by 20 points once in the final period before the inability to make free throws cost them the game.
Harrison County jumped out to a 5-0 lead on a Tyler Wagner basket and the first of Dillon Pulliam’s six three pointers.

On Sunday, a man my husband used to work with called to say he and his wife were in our area, about an hour away.
He had asked, “Are you going to be home for a while?”
That’s never a question I like to be asked unless it’s from the Publisher’s Clearing House people wanting my address so they can deliver a giant bazillion dollar check.
If I am repeating myself from a time ago, please forgive me, but the boys’ district championship game begs for an old saying. When a person is young things seem bigger than they do when you look back on them after a few years.
“Time heals all” and “The sun will come up tomorrow” are two old sayings that are frequently used after a particularly difficult time or event has taken place.

As a result of strong Christian morals and past positive mentors being the foundation that Kelley Brunker has chosen to build her life upon, she was named the 2011 Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year.
The 2011 Chamber of Commerce awards banquet proved to be a very emotional event for Brunker as she was named as the Citizen of the Year. The nomination was made by her long-time friend and neighbor, Rhonda Strawzell.
