  • Fillies fall to Madison Central

    The best team in the 11th Region may be a title that can be disputed, but a really good, deep, talented team cannot be when one is talking about Madison Central. 

    The Harrison County Fillies found out all about that Saturday as they traveled to Richmond and battled the Lady Indians. 

    The first quarter’s tempo was to the liking of the Fillies as they were able to scrap and battle and only trail by five at the first stop.

  • Gathering ‘round the tree

    At my house, the Christmas tree assembly and decoration marks the official kick-off to the holiday season.

    If the Christmas tree is up, then it is deemed okay to buy presents, wrap presents and start making fruit cake.

    The Christmas tree might be the center of all family holiday festivities, but it can also be the cause of some family disagreements... at least in the Darnell household.

    There is the all important debate over white lights versus colored lights.

    Strings of beads or ribbon?

    A bow at the top or a tree-topper?

  • Don’t let faith get stuck in one gear

    When I met my husband, he drove a totally hot car, a brand-new 1973 Mercury Comet GT, white with burnt orange pinstripes and burnt orange interior.

    And it had a manual transmission.

    Because we were young and newly in love and Barry had miles of patience, he attempted to teach me to drive it. It helped that we lived in Northern Maine where there wasn’t much to crash into except snow banks and caribou.

  • Board begins school board member replacement process

    The Harrison County Board of Education has initiated the process for replacing school board member Lucy Vanhook, who resigned in November with a Dec. 31 effective date.

    Vanhook, who cited a conflict with her work schedule, stepped down after 11 years serving as the Division 2 representative.

    According to a release received Monday morning, the position will be served for the balance of 2010. Candidates must run in the November 2010 election to continue on the board.

  • The dish on NFL playoffs, UK sports, wrestling

    It’s official!! The Jets were given the playoff berth. The Ravens, Green Bay and Philadelphia earned the wild cards and the Jets were given theirs.   I hope that the Bengals and Colts lose the first game they play. 

    Bobby Feeback was the guest on Let’s Talk Sports Saturday morning on WCYN. Between the calls and other interruptions, he was able to give a good account of what goes on with a student athletic trainer.  

    While the job has many exciting moments, it is a demanding and time consuming venture.
