  • Positive messages are the best

    After the football game last Friday night, it might be hard to stay positive but we must.  
    I am not going to dwell on the game but more this week on positive events, some personal and some high school sports events.  
    The football game, while ugly after we lost a chance to score when it was 13-0, still had a positive in my mind.  That was even in this heated rivalry our team showed restraint and didn’t have any unsportsmanlike penalties or personal fouls.

    The Harrison County Fillies basketball team is hard at work preparing for the 2017-18 season.   
    “We are working to be more athletic, to push the ball more,” said Coach Kim Furnish Marshall. “We will run the floor more and take quicker shots.”  
    That doesn’t mean the Fillies in Marshall’s seventh year are all of the sudden going to be careless with the ball.
