  • Ms. Rita will long be remembered for her dedication, passion

    To the Editor:

    The Harrison County School System has lost a remarkable lady. Mrs. Rita Rogers was a classroom assistant at Northside Elementary School. Over the past 20 years, Mrs. Rogers has touched the lives of thousands of students that walked through the halls of the school. She also touched the lives of many fellow staff members, including mine.

  • People should help themselves

    To the editor:

    Let’s speak out and if we all pull together, we might get our point out. So, if you are a working person, please speak out and quit paying for people who don’t work or who try to help themselves.

    The reason I am writing this is to explain my letter to the editor that appeared in a previous paper. Anyway, it is time for working people to have a say and to get help. If you are one that lives strictly off the government, you should not be allowed to booze it up and you should have to show how you spend government money.

  • Fillies pitching coach Philpott retires after long career

    There will be an empty spot in the corner of the Harrison County Fillies dugout next season and a bucket seat missing an occupant. 

    After a total of 15 years of high school softball coaching, most spent as a pitching coach, Gary Philpott has decided that the past year was his last. 

    The 15 years of softball coaching in high school is only the tip of the iceberg as far as Philpott’s coaching career goes.

  • If the conferences all realign, will the NCAA be history?

    Here is my idea for realigning the conferences. 

    There would be four conferences. One for the student athletes, two for kind of middle of the road schools and one for pro’s in waiting.

    First, the student athlete conference.  Some teams are obvious: Vanderbilt, Northwestern and Duke would make up the core of the actual student athlete conference along with Stanford.

  • New track facility something to be proud of on the Hilltop

    We may be bragging too much, but I doubt it. 

    The Harrison County Athletic Complex is just a really good track facility which is a fact, not a boast. 

    I spent the entire regional track meet Saturday in the broiling sun watching some outstanding performances and also watching the reaction of the visiting athletes and coaches.
