  • A most heinous act

    It wasn’t uncommon when I was a youngster for my mother to exclaim in angst, “What is this world coming to?!”
    This could come after reading the paper, watching the news, or just after one of my brothers would do something that was unusually stupid. This exclamation is perfect though for what happened in Texas last week in a high school football game.

    The first game of the Cumberland Valley Bowl was much like the second half of the game with East Jessamine to the Harrison County Thorobreds.  
    The Breds gained just one yard shy of 400 yards for the night and scored 35 points, but the defense could not contain North Laurel’s running game and gave up 449 yards in the 45-35 loss.
