  • Recovery in the bag

    Corey Campbell woke up a little earlier than usual on Monday morning, but this time it wasn’t just to take his medicine on time.

    Campbell, 19, returned to work after taking medical leave in November.

  • What was God thinking when he created crazy moms?

    My friend Cristy and I often ponder the deep mysteries of the universe.

    For instance, “What was God thinking?” one of us will start, then say, “by putting trans fats and carbohydrates that turn into belly lard in foods that taste good?”

    She has one and I am one.

  • Happy days are here again for HC

    What a long rewarding week!! The format of 16 teams in the boys’ state tournament made for long nights and little sleep, but in the end is the right format. 

    I’m not saying that because Harrison County won, Harrison County did win, but because it is a fair way to see who has the best team. 

    If the format is unfair at all it would be to a team, like Harrison County, which had a rain out and had to play five consecutive days. But that won’t happen much and if it does, good teams still find a way most of the time.
