    The Harrison County Middle School Volleyball Fillies traveled to Lexington last Tuesday and swept three matches from the Lexington Christian Academy Middle School volleyball teams.  
    The sixth grade won 21-11, 21-19.  The seventh grade followed with a 21-14 and 21-10 win and the eighth grade finished the Eagles with a 21-11, 21-4 thrashing.

  • Viewpoint

    Last week I interviewed a fine gentleman, Jimmie Rose. That interview and his story appears elsewhere in this week’s paper.
    Earlier this week, an article appeared in the Lexington Herald about the exploits of the Edmondson County basketball team that won the boys state tournament in 1976 and supposedly saved the one-class Sweet Sixteen that Kentucky is so proud of.
    Those two separate events caused me to reminisce about some events in my past.

  • Who Will You Be This Year?

    Have you ever played cowboys and Indians, or pretended to be the game winning athlete? Imagination is a key to a happy childhood.  
    Adults play games like that as well. We relive our lives through our children – wanting for them what we wished for ourselves, e.g. dads at the ball field, moms at the bridal shop. A dangerous game we adults play is “What if I only had…?” We try to relive our lives.

    There’s always something new to click on Facebook, and recently it’s been “What Has 2016 Taught You?”
    According to Facebook, here’s what I’ve supposedly learned this past year:
    “Forgiving is easy, it’s trusting them again that’s hard.”
    The folks or whoever/whatever at Facebook added, “The past year has changed you completely. You’ve seen your life from a completely different angle and this led you to new experiences.”
