    Once, it was in the Cayman Islands, where they went scuba diving; another time, it was in the caverns of Mammoth Cave, and, yet another time, it was in a barn where one of the children helped deliver foals.
    For the Bacons, the classroom is anywhere they want it to be.
    The Bacons do have an actual classroom, and they spend time there as well, learning    math, reading, science, and the like. But, like the location, the curriculum can be tailor-made.

  • The right place and the right message

    Saturday night’s Harrison County Football Alumni Association Hall of Fame Banquet was a smashing success.  
    What I am going to write is not meant as a slight to any other banquet, location for a banquet or any other football coaching staff.  This is only to say that in my opinion the Saturday affair was almost perfectly done.
    The Field House is the right place for a sports banquet of any kind.
