  • Bumper crop of peppers and squash not a sure thing

    You know all the jokes about people having bumper crops of summer squash?

    Squash shows up in people’s cars or in public spaces because there is so much that the gardener can’t even give it away. Well, some years are better than others and this year, I don’t seem to have an over abundance.

    This year, the squash vine borer and blossom end rot dominate; last year it was squash bugs and mildew.

  • Crows and crow have their places but not to eat

    I really have nothing to say about the bird called a crow, but the title was so catchy I had to use it. I do have something to say about eating crow. 

    Don’t take this as a surrender or a change of heart, but I believe in giving credit where credit is due.   

    The Reds of Cincinnati have played better baseball with more success than I ever dreamed possible, especially with Dusty Baker as manager. 

  • First-half turnovers spell defeat for Thorobreds in Rec Bowl

    Nine turnovers and 15 penalties make it very hard to win. 

    It only took six seconds to get a five-yard penalty, which set the tone for the first half. 

    The Harrison County Thorobreds opened the scoring after the teams each had the ball one time without success. Eric Lewis intercepted a Matt Tuttle pass on the 10-yard line and ran it back to his own 30. 

    On the next play, back-up quarterback Tyler Martin, playing wide receiver, hit Shane Fowler on a 70-yard end-around pass play to make it 6-0 Harrison County.

  • Volleyball evens record at 2-2 with win over Montgomery County

    Thursday night’s volleyball matches left Coach Bill Faulkner a little out of sorts after George Rogers Clark beat the Harrison County Fillies in two straight games to win the varsity match 2-0. 

    The Fillies dropped the first set 20-25, but had a 23-20 lead in the second only to lose by 23-25 to end the match. 

    “I was disappointed that we had a three-point lead and lost it,” said Faulkner. “We will work on this as a team.”

  • Golfers have matches with Nicholas, Pendleton counties

    Last Thursday, the junior varsity, the middle school and the Fillies golf teams traveled to the Carnico Country Club to face the Nicholas County Bluejacket squads. 

    The boys’ JV took the victory by a 30-stroke margin as they defeated Nicholas County 152 to 182. Jake Jones was rewarded for the hard work that he did last summer as he was the medalist for the day with a score of 44. 

    Zach Hernandez added a 52 and Peyton Browning a 54 for the Breds’ JV. Chris George led Nicholas with a 49.
