  • There is some time that I will never get back

    I was coerced Sunday to waste more time than I have wasted in I don’t know when.  
    It depends on one’s definition of “wasted time” but in my mind, I lost several hours.  
    NASCAR has not started yet so those of you who think that it is a waste of time to watch a bunch of cars drive in a circle, that wasn’t my time waster.  
    I like NASCAR and don’t consider that a waste of time especially if I am in attendance at the track.

    The girls advanced to the finals by completing one of the best rounds of the day in the semi’s advancing them on to Sunday night’s competition.  

  • Homecoming/Senior Night blowout for Montgomery County over Breds 67-33

    The delayed and rescheduled homecoming game and the end-of-the-season Senior Night festivities were very good Friday night except for one glaring omission. The Harrison County Thorobreds lost the game in a less than impressive outing leaving an emotional hole in the festivities.
    The night started very nicely with a chili supper/bake sale sponsored by Project Graduation, which was nearly a $1,000 success.  
    The junior varsity game was very well played going into overtime before the Montgomery County team edged the Thorobreds junior varsity 58 to 54.
