  • An annual Psalm of Thanksgiving

    Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy has been writing an annual psalm of thanksgiving since 1999 when she first started writing her column.

    Dear God,
    Here I am again, my 17th year of making public my thanks and gratitude to you for yet another year of your faithful kindness and goodness to me.
    Lord, you and I have walked together for nearly 40 years, and even when I’ve strayed from the path, you’ve never left my side or dropped hold of my hand, even for a moment.

    The festivities got under way with a performance of some routines by the 2016-17 Harrison County varsity cheerleaders and the 2016-17 dance team.  

  • Breds wrestlers to battle for region crown

    Mike Aldridge,
    Sports Writer

    Despite losing four wrestlers from last year’s team who either placed, or were a couple of matches away from placing, in the state meet, Coach Luke Tucker believes his team will be in the hunt for the Region 8 title.
    “Johnson Central only graduated one so they have to be the favorite but we aren’t conceding anything,” Tucker said.  “We have a really good senior class and a good group of sophomores who can bring us closer to them if we perform.”
