    I thought that I was entered in a NASCAR race coming home from Florida including some big backups in which I assumed that someone was black flagged.  As you know if you travel I-75 the speed limit appears to be a suggestion and not one that is taken seriously.  
    I did see a couple of vehicles trading paint as they say but other than that the 900-mile race home in one day was uneventful.

    Boyle County and Ryle pummeled Harrison County pitching for 22 hits and 24 runs in games played on Shirley Field, Friday.  The Fillies managed 15 hits in the two games but fell behind early in both and could not overcome the deficits.  
    Harrison County hoped to pull out a win over the Boyle County team that eliminated them in last year’s state tournament.  But the Lady Rebels scored 14 times in the first four innings to defeat the Fillies 14-2.
