  • The Olympics, then and now

    I have been watching the Olympic Games since I was 11 years old and can remember much of what happened in my early life.  
    The Games are different now with less obvious political overtones being one of the pluses while apathy being a minus.  
    Maybe we are not so different from the Soviet bloc of old which makes the athletes less endearing as they go about the “games” to gain personal fame and fortune.  

  • Harrison County cheerleaders set...

    Harrison County Cheerleader Coach Jessica Reynolds doesn’t want to rest on the laurels of last year.  
    “We had a wonderful year last year finishing fifth in the nation and sixth at state, but we cannot be satisfied with last year’s accomplishments,” she said Monday night. “It won’t be easy to improve but we love a challenge.”
    The second-year coach smiled as she stated what she hopes to see from this year’s squad.

  • Jenkins enters her 8th season...

    It only seems like yesterday for Coach Kim Jenkins when she began to coach the Harrison County Fillies Soccer program, but it was actually eight years ago.  
    “Time really flies when you are busy coaching, but I have enjoyed every minute of it,” she said as she recalled the years.
    This year may be easier to remember and more fun to recall as she greets a huge group of players and seven returning starters to the LeBus Field practices.

  • The Carr Era begins as football...

    BAfter one week of practice the Harrison County Thorobreds football players are fully aware that a new sheriff is in town.  
    “When we played football when I was in school we were not the most talented group,” admitted Coach Jim Carr. “But we were in the best shape and won games in the fourth quarter. We will be in better shape than our opponent in 2012.”  
    Carr played for Fred Mariani, whose teams had modest success from 1977-79 without great talent and learned what being in good condition meant in determining wins and losses.

  • Be true to your school and a...

    The Beach Boys in the 60s sang a song about cruising around town with their letter sweaters on and the school decal on the car showing everyone who could see that they were “number one in the state.”  
    They, of course, were referencing their school being better than the others in town since they grew up in metropolitan Los Angeles where there are multiple schools.  
    We in Harrison County have only one school to be true to and that is good old Harrison County High School.  

  • Middle School Football Camp...

    More than 65 middle school boys turned out Monday for the kick off to the season, the Harrison County Middle School Football Camp.  
    The coaching staff, six of whom are new, greeted the players to begin workouts for the three-day camp.  
    The heat index was a problem on Monday as it was at 105 degrees, which prevents workouts of any kind.  
    After a few minutes, the index dropped below 105 and the workouts began in earnest.
    The new coaching staff begins with the head coach of the HCMS program, Terry McMillan.
