  • Of course I am right

    Years ago I wrote a book about idols, which is just another word for sin.

    An idol is whatever you turn to first — a person, possession, position, relationship, substance, belief or experience — for comfort, security, identity, meaning, etc. Basically, anything other than God.

  • Former Harrison youth to be preferred walk-on with Wildcats

    Though he never played football in Harrison County Will Thomas Collins lived in Harrison County during his middle school years.  
    “So what?” you might ask since many of the readers of the Democrat may not be familiar with Will Thomas.  
    Will Thomas Collins and his family lived in Harrison County from 1999 to 2010 before his father, Jon Collins, became an assistant football coach at Breathitt County High School.

  • Football rolls on with camp beginning Thursday

    “This is one way to develop a feeling of closeness and work as a team,” said Coach Jimmy Carr when asked about the upcoming team camp.  “The players will devote a lot of time to playing and hitting harder and doing things with and for their teammates.”
    The team camp begins Thursday at 11 a.m. and goes through Sunday at 1 p.m..  
    “We will close down Sunday with an early practice then a short church service before going to our homes,” noted Carr.

  • The Jungle won by Works and Jenkins by seven strokes

    Saturday’s rain didn’t last long and neither did the suspense for the tournament as Jason Works and his guest, Jake Jenkins, took a five-stroke lead on the first day and were never challenged in winning the fifth annual “The Jungle” at the Cynthiana Country Club.  
    The 19-below-par handicapped score was five better than the duos of Colin and Mike Duffie, Brad Marshall and Jim Shields, Kevin Letcher and Blake Bishop, and Frank and Joe Henson.

  • Liar, liar, pants on fire

    The Castaways sang these lyrics back in the good old days of music (1965) when you could understand what the lyrics were in a song and when you did understand them it wasn’t “X” rated.  
    In fact, this song was performed on Gilligan’s Island by Ginger, Mary Ann and Mrs. Howell so it had to be “G” rated, but I regress.
    The lyrics now fit many of the “stars “of sport and unfortunately some who are not stars.

  • Fireflies light the night for love

    Likely as a child you collected fireflies in a jar and took them to bed to light up your room on a warm summer night.  
    I remember getting my parents to puncture the lid of a mason jar so the magical insects could breathe.  
    Well, it turns out that all that light flashing wasn’t meant for our entertainment  but rather about entertaining love.
    Researchers at Tufts University and Bringham and Woman’s Hospital have been observing the flashes of fireflies for a decade of summers and what they have uncovered may surprise you.
