  • Be aware of those who support your rights

    Why has recreation no longer been a major priority in Harrison County?
    I can recall a time when I was younger, which was not long ago, when recreation was something that was highly thought of in our community.
    Before I begin, I would like to say that I do not blame our current recreation lull on any one person.
    Problems are typically not attributed to any one person.
    However, a recent incident concerning a woman being denied her right to participate in local sports tops the cake in a terrible tasting way.
