  • Union negotiations in sports;...

    What is going on in sports right now is actually funny if it wouldn’t be so ridiculous.  The National Football League and the player’s union can’t agree on a contract so they are locked out.  
    The National Basketball Association and the players’ union can’t agree on a contract and talk of a strike looms on the horizon.  
    You talk about your slow learners. Can’t these people see what striking did to baseball and hockey?

  • Track teams hold 2011 post-...

    The County Extension Office was the scene Saturday for the annual track awards ceremony hosted by Coaches Danny Simpson and Kurt Burgan.  
    Burgan was standing in for Coach Robert Walker, who was recuperating from a minor surgery.  
    The event began with a potluck luncheon prepared by the families of team members.  
    Following the lunch Simpson and Burgan recognized the teams for the outstanding season, which was just concluded with the state track meet on May 26 at the University of Louisville.

  • The American Sports fan, give us...

    Hate is a strong word, but intensely dislike doesn’t make a good title so there we go.
    Anyway, LeBron James and the failure of the Miami Heat to win the NBA title brought the extreme dislike of players to the forefront during the past two weeks.
    I thought it would be a good time to list the villains of sports in my lifetime and if you like you can recall some of the people you didn’t particularly care for in your sports life.  

  • East/West softball interrupted...

    Harrison County junior Tracey Hicks’ East All Star adventure was shortened from three games to two last weekend, but was still a productive, learning experience.
    “Tracey had an overall good experience,” said Coach Christine Garnett. “She got to meet and compete with players from around the state in her class and also was able to watch the senior all stars play and learn from them.”

  • Fillies learn hard lessons at...

    There are at least two ways to approach summer camp for basketball teams. One is to go to a camp where the competition is light and the team can experience winning while not learning much and the other is to go to a highly competitive camp where wins and losses mean a lot less than the lessons the team learns.
    The latter was the choice of new Fillies head coach Kim Furnish last week when they attended team camp at the University of Louisville.
