  • Grace Notes

    One of my favorite things to do is sit on my couch and look out our big back window and watch the wind blow through the trees.
    It reminds me of the conversation Jesus once had with a religious leader named Nicodemus.
    Talking about the need for a person to be transformed by the Holy Spirit, Jesus told him that God’s Spirit is like the wind.
    “It blows wherever it pleases,” Jesus said. “You can hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it’s going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit” (John 3:8).

    The Harrison County golf team has been plagued by the weather like several of the other fall sports.  
    The only match the golfers could get in last week was the boys playing in the Montgomery County Invitational.  In this tough 21 team event the Breds were 19th of the 21 teams.  
    The home Indians won the Indian Creek Golf Course event with a team total of 294.  Scott County was next with 299 followed by Madison Central with 302.

  • More of likes and dislikes

    I had several people tell me during the past week that they liked my likes and dislikes article.  
    I feel that this is the case because they too are annoyed by and/or made happy by certain things that happen in the world of sports. I will add some more.
    The University of Kentucky win over Florida to break the losing streak made me happy. Not so much because UK won but because it made so many people that I know joyous.  

  • Soccer Fillies roll past Bourbon County 4-1

    The Harrison County Fillies have been spending as much time on the bus waiting as they have traveling as of late.  Similar to last week’s Anderson County visit the trip Wednesday to Bourbon County saw a long delay for lightning which had a 45 minute wait on the bus.  
    The delay shortened the junior varsity match in which the Fillies lost a hard fought battle 1-0 to the Lady Colonel junior varsity.
