  • The last words of Jesus to His church

    God and Jesus will provide whatever is needed for the people who spend eternity in the new heaven and new earth. Rev. 22:1-5  “And he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of the street and on either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, and yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing (or health) of the nations.

  • Thorobreds put Hounds on ice 55-47

    It was cold both inside and outside the gym Saturday night when the Harrison County Thorobreds hosted the Paris Greyhounds. Geoff Cody’s Hounds found the Thorobred defense to be quite a challenge as they hit only 29 percent for the game while Harrison County hit on only 34 percent. 

    The Breds shooting woes were a combination of poor shot selection and the goal seemingly having a lid on it. 

    Paris took an early lead, at one time leading by six, but Harrison County pulled out the win, 55-47.

  • A not-so-sweet resolution

    For as long as I can remember, I have been addicted to sweets.

    I believe myself to be a gal of substantial willpower. I can go without fries, soft drinks and donuts.

    But when it comes to desserts, I must admit, I get a bit weak in the knees.

    Even as I sit here at my desk, visions of sweet things dance in my head.
