  • Breds win second game of season, 5-0 over Cardinals Tuesday

    Nathan Fryman ran his record to 2-0 Tuesday and the Harrison County Thorobreds took their season record to 2-0 with a 5-0 win over George Rogers Clark in Winchester.
    The Thorobreds struck first with an unearned run in the first and were never really threatened in this game.  
    George Rogers Clark only had two base runners as far as second base for the ball game.
    In the first, Noah Mitchell reached on an error by the second baseman and advanced to third on two wild pitches.  

  • No-till philosophy makes sense during soggy spring

    One of the most anticipated rites of spring is dusting off the tiller and heading out to the vegetable garden for a little soil play.  
    It is one of those things you can’t plan for, though.  
    It becomes a waiting game because we can’t do it if the soil is too wet; we don’t want to do it if it is too cold, and we only have the time to do it when the weekend rolls around.
    Well, what would you say if I told you that you were off the hook when it comes to spring tilling?

  • When God is "too small"

    A few years back, I read about a woman who titles her years according to what she wanted to accomplish or see happen during the year.
    One year might be “The year of overcoming” or “Hope will see me through.”
    That one particular year was titled “Your God is too small” after a lengthy conversation she had with a friend about all the things she doubted would ever happen, from family members coming to faith in Christ to whether she would ever or could ever sell her house.
