  • The best of all time

    I just glanced at an item on Facebook about the greatest players of all times in sports.  The most recent argument that has been brought up is between Michael Jordan and LeBron James.  
    I don’t think either of them is the greatest of all time though between the two I would take Jordan.

    Veteran, yet youthful, Fillies head coach Christine Garnett welcomes back 10 full or part time starters from last year’s 10th Region champions to do battle in the 2018 season.
     Gone are starters Taylor Reffett and MaKayla Cloyd and DH Emily Hendrix from last year’s 24-13 team.  Garnett will fill the spots with girls who have a lot of playing time under their belts.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds bowed out of the 2017-18 basketball season Wednesday night at Mason County in the quarter-finals of the 10th Region Tournament.  The Breds put up a gallant fight against the Campbell County Camels (26-5) but their last quarter rally fell a little shy.  Campbell County has not lost to a Tenth Region team this season.

  • What to do with 38th District...

    Each year, or at least two of four years, the problem of a too-crowded gym and not ample parking presents itself for the 38th District Tournament.
    The past boys’ championship game was a perfect example of the problem. Here are some issues and some suggestions that I have which will be ignored but here goes anyway.
    The parking problem.  When I arrived with Jim Swinford at 5:46 for a 7 p.m. start time, the parking people were already sending cars to the secondary lot.
