  • A glimpse into how God really feels about us

    Tachycardia is a dangerously rapid heartbeat, arrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat and dead is no heartbeat at all — and I had all three recently.
    That may be a slight exaggeration and a bit of melodrama, but the truth is I experienced severe panic recently.
    I lost my camera.
    And by “my camera” I mean the one the Chronicle gave me to use and not mine to keep.

  • Soccer Breds edge Wildcats 3-2

    Last Thursday the Harrison County soccer Breds traveled to take on the Pendleton County Wildcats in Falmouth.  
    Coach Nick Hill was concerned more than usual before the match as he was without both junior Ben Anness and senior Josh Young and the Wildcats have been a nemesis for the past few years.  
    The Breds started off slowly and were a goal down before Anthony Shirley took a Kyle Foster pass and nailed it to the back of the net to tie at one each.

    Last Wednesday the Harrison County Fillies soccer team played host to one of the top teams in the region, George Rogers Clark, and were defeated by a 4-0 score.  
    The match was not as one sided as the score would indicate, but again the Fillies could not connect on good scoring opportunities.  Combine that with the fact that three of the four GRC goals were of the flukiest nature and the match is a tight, competitive battle.
