  • The many faces of Elder Abuse

    To the editor:

    As America’s population grows older, we will witness an increase in a very unpleasant development that too often accompanies ageing. It’s called Elder Abuse. It can be perpetrated by caregivers, friends, family, and strangers. It can happen in aged care facilities, in the family home - wherever the aged victim may be - and it manifests itself in a variety of ways.

    Physical abuse consists of misuse of physical force which can result in bodily injury. Slapping, hitting, shaking, kicking, and excessive restraint are examples of this kind of abuse.

  • Breds undefeated as they head to Vegas

    The Harrison County Thorobreds baseball team won three more times last week to take its season record to 7-0 defeating Paris and Scott High on the road and Nicholas County on the Hilltop.

    Wednesday at Paris Ryan Durbin and Mason Fowler combined to allow only three hits in the abbreviated 10-run rule game. Fowler also homered in his one at-bat, and Eric Sanders tripled and drove in four runs to lead the Thorobreds attack. 

  • Opening day for the Reds and the new track

    In order of occurrence, I really enjoyed the inaugural track meet at the new track at the high school. 

    The pure joy from the Harrison County coaches that came from being the envy of the coaching community was great to see. Especially after years of having to travel to compete in top meets, the athletes and the coaching staff deserve to have this facility.  

    I thought that the meet was well run with a couple of exceptions, which I will not list because I know that the athletic department is also aware of them and is working for solutions.

  • God of ‘another chance’

    Recently, I met a young guy who told me about his faith journey with Jesus.

    He had grown up in church but didn’t want to follow Jesus once he got older. He didn’t go into details, but he said he was a knucklehead and did a lot of stuff he knew was wrong and didn’t really want to do what’s right.

    One day he was out driving and hydroplaned his car and it stopped just before going over a ledge.

    He said as he thought about what had just happened and how it could’ve ended, he heard God say to him, “Give me another chance.”
