    Mason County’s Lady Royals had revenge on their minds Monday night as they met the Harrison County Fillies on the Athletic Complex Field.  The Fillies buried Mason County 6-0 in last year’s district finals which obviously left a bad taste in the mouths of the Lady Royals.

  • Two things I miss

    Monday morning’s Herald Leader had an article about Spaulding’s Bakery, which reminded me about things that I enjoyed in my youth that I no longer see or get to indulge in in my latter years.  
    I love donuts.  
    Spaulding’s may be the greatest, which is what I have been told, but Ken’s serves a mean donut as well. This is not particularly an endorsement of any one donut maker over another because I have never met a donut that I didn’t like.

    The 15th annual Harrison County Football Alumni banquet was held Saturday in the Harrison County Field House.  
    HCHS Fillies basketball coach Kim Furnish and her Fillies along with her sister, Mary Heimlich and others, had the Field House looking like a banquet hall.  
    After Reverend Kenneth Newby blessed the food each person marched through the food line and filled their plates with a nice meal.  Drinks and desserts were served by the Fillies basketball team.
