    This year turned out better than last is the first piece of good news.
    In 2010 I wrote, “Sadly, this year was sort of a bust for the vast majority of what I planted.” I can’t do that year after year so thank goodness the tomatoes and zucchini kept pace this time around.

  • Breds soccer team loses tough one at Montgomery County, ties LCA

    In a very energetic and contrasting match, the Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team fell by a 2-1 margin at Montgomery County on Thursday.  
    The first half was all Montgomery County on offense as the Indians ran their action plan well and were constantly putting heat on the Thorobreds’ defense.  
    A couple of defensive lapses by the Breds, and the Indians took a 2-0 lead into the half.  
    The contrast came in the second half as the Thorobreds took over with the ball and had the home team back on its heels the entire period.
