  • Civility: trick - or treat?

    The last time I was in an airport I picked up the book, “How to Talk to Anyone.” It promised 92 little “tricks” for big success in relationships.

    Because my job involves talking to people, or more importantly getting them to talk to me, I bought the book.

    The author, Leil Lowndes, also wrote “How to Make Anyone Fall in Love with You.” I think the author may have used some crossover material from her other book in this one because trick No. 3 is “How to use your eyes to make someone fall in love with you.”

    The Breds have struggled a bit this season on converting extra points, but not last Friday against Pendleton County where they used three different kickers to combine for a perfect five for five. Daniel Klapheke and Joe Korona were both two for two and Justin Fryman was one for one.

    The 100-yard interception return last week by Malcolm Thomas broke 40-plus year old record of Tom Dixon, who returned one 90 yards back in the mid 60’s.

    The Dependable Pup Tent!  If there’s a perfect name for our camping home, it was a pup tent! “Woody,” Dad explained, “A pup tent refers to a shelter that doesn’t have floors or windows. It’s also a tent we have to assemble, so let’s read the directions.”  “Directions?” I barked! “We’re smart. We don’t need directions.” “Woody, this is our home for the next several days. I think we should read the directions and get it right.

  • Fillies’ volleyball heads to region

    The Fillies volleyball team will battle Deming for the district title tonight at 7 p.m. at Bracken County.

    Despite a win or lose, Coach Bill Faulkner said the team will head to regionals next week at Campbell County.

    “I think we’re the top three or four in the region if we play like we’ve been playing,” Faulkner said Wednesday morning.

    Faulkner said several teams in the region are suffering from the loss of good players - an injury loss at Highlands and the loss of five Division 1 seniors at Newport Catholic.
