  • High School dropout age receives major bipartisan support

    With time running out in the 2013 Regular Session, we turned our attention this week to reaching agreements on some of the General Assembly’s top priorities.

  • Signing bills into laws

    With only two days remaining to consider possible vetoes and some unresolved issues, the General Assembly completed much of its work this legislative session early last week.
    Since the House and Senate only meet for 30 instead of 60 working days in odd-numbered years – and four of those are set aside to elect leaders and appoint committees – we spent the relatively short amount of time we had tackling a fairly long agenda.

  • In praise of the stupid dance

    In case you haven’t heard of Matt Harding, let me tell you about him.
    A former video game designer, at age 23 he quit his job to travel around Southeast Asia until his money ran out.
    While he was in Hanoi taking photos, his traveling buddy said, “Hey, why don’t you stand over there and do your stupid dance and I’ll record it?”
    Harding did his stupid signature dance and thought the video was funny, so he started doing it and recording it everywhere he went on his trip and posted it on his blog for his friends to see.

  • Baseball Breds begin season with 2 victories and some bad weather

    Harrison County began defense of the 38th District baseball title Thursday afternoon with a 10-0 win over district rival Pendleton County.  
    The Breds were never threatened in this five-inning affair as pitchers Jordan Riley, the starter, Nolan Brossart and John King allowed only two hits to the Wildcats.  
    Pendleton County only got two runners past first base in the game and none farther than second.  
    Harrison County struck with two runs in the second on the first of King’s three hits, this one a two-run homer.

    Ron Markley and Austin Dacci are in their first year as head coaches of the Harrison County High School tennis teams.  
    Dacci is coaching the Fillies and Markley the Thorobreds as they enter into the tennis season.  
    Last week was the first week of competition and already the coaches like what they see in the young but somewhat experienced squad.  
    The Thorobreds have the bare minimum number of players, but Markley doesn’t see that as a real problem.

    Coach Danny Simpson noted, “We were blessed by warm weather in the ‘Luck of the Irish Meet’ especially considering the preparation that we have been able to work in.  The cold has hamstrung our preparation time.”
