    I can remember many things that happened in my youth especially at Christmastime. Christmas in my family meant Christmas Eve with the Aldridge family. Since my dad was one of nine children, there could be anywhere between 50 to 80 people in a small house though we never noticed it being crowded.  

  • Paris hands Fillies first loss 40-32

    Harrison County jumped out to an 11-2 lead Wednesday night, but was unable to sustain the momentum and fell to the Paris Lady Hounds on the Hilltop.  
    Paris fought back in the quarter and cut the lead to 11-9 by the end of the quarter aided by foul trouble once again for freshman center Jordan Doram.  
    The six-footer picked up her second foul late in the first period and went to the bench for the remainder of the half.
