  • Grace Notes

    This past Valentine’s Day, the newspaper ran a story I wrote about Harry and Charlotte Austin who have been sweethearts since Charlotte was 10 and Harry was 11.
    They recently celebrated their 70th anniversary.
    I’ve written about them before -- they sit behind me in church on Saturday nights.
    For the past five or so years Charlotte has had dementia, and in 2015 she had a stroke that affected her left side.
    So, when they come to church, Harry positions her in the pew next to him in such a way that if she leans she won’t topple over.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds played perhaps their poorest half of the season Wednesday night as 10-18 Bourbon County came to the Hilltop to play a rematch of the Dec. 19, 83-57 win by the Breds.  
    The second time around was much different with Bourbon County staying with the Breds in the first half and then exploding for 52 points in the second half for an 86-50 whipping of the Thorobreds.

  • Discipline, a thing of the past?

    It is not completely the fault of the undisciplined.  Discipline begins at home but cannot always be controlled by the parents. So, who or what is to blame for the lack of discipline that we see today in sports from Little League to high school.
    The environment that surrounds a young person is in part responsible for how he or she is disciplined.  If a parent, guardian or another adult figure is always at odds with authority then the likelihood of them following in those footsteps is pretty good.

    When March Madness begins, previous games and records can be thrown out the window.  
    An example of that happened Monday evening when the Harrison County Fillies matched up with the Lady Devils of Robertson County.  
    Only 19 days previously the Fillies had defeated the Lady Devils 68-21 in a game played in Mt. Olivet.
