    It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas around here, particularly with the cold weather and the long-term forecast that there might actually be snow on the ground when Santa and his reindeer make their rounds on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
    Even if that forecast does not pan out, there is a guarantee for “ice” on the ground this coming weekend, at least in the Joe B. Hall Mural parking lot.

    Only about four minutes of a defensive and rebounding lapse was all that it took for the Harrison County Thorobreds to lose to Scott High Tuesday night.  
    The 1-3 Thorobreds allowed Scott to have easy baskets and offensive rebounds in a four or five minute stretch from late in the first period into the second quarter.  
    Other than that brief period of time, the Breds played right with the defending Tenth Region champions on the Scott High floor.

  • A refreshing contrast

    I don’t like writing about the flag protests but something that is going on in the high school basketball games made me want to mention it again. 
    The unfortunate method of protest chosen by some in the National Football League has brought about national attention for a few along with some other ridiculous accolades from misguided media.
