  • Mike's Minute

    We all know that money is tight for schools and that overall Harrison County has some pretty good facilities, but here is a partial wish list that I have in mind for improvement of fan (and sportswriter) enjoyment and ease of doing job.
    Football and baseball press boxes are the best that I am in for any sport that we cover.  Still, there is something I would like for the baseball fan. That would be a concession stand and restroom that do not require a hike to reach.  This is not a big problem, but I am making my wish list.
