  • Let’s let everyone play

    It seems like each week I need to comment on something before I get into my topic and this week is no exception.  
    The University of Kentucky’s basketball scrimmages being played in the Bahamas has a real local flavor.  
    All six games will be officiated by Harrison County natives John Hampton, Brent Hampton and Bart Lenox.  The three began their “tough” assignment Sunday and will finish this Sunday.

    Maroon-White game shows defense ahead of offense
    Both the Maroon and White defenses proved to be the dominant force for their teams as the Maroon-White scrimmage managed only one score during the semi-live scrimmage Friday night on Lawson Field.  
    The Ingles Stadium controlled battle was a demonstration of the fact that defense usually is ahead of offense in the early part of the season.  
    Coach Jim Carr said he was disappointed at first as the scrimmage went on, but after viewing the film he felt better about the effort.

  • Bumper crop squash not a sure thing

    You know all the jokes about people having bumper crops of summer squash?  Squash shows up in people’s cars or in public spaces because there is so much that the gardener can’t even give it away.  Well, that’s never really been a problem for me.  I have a little bit of that problem this year and I give credit to the variety and the fact that it was plated later than usual.  Others, however, have not been so blessed.
