  • Yellow Jackets fly past Breds on Hilltop

    If the game was only the first and fourth quarters, the Harrison County Thorobreds would have been in the thick of it Friday.  
    After the No. 3-ranked Williamsburg Yellow Jackets scored twice in the first two minutes of the game, Mark Taylor hit Colin Coy with a long touchdown throw to apparently bring the Breds within one score. However, a penalty for hitting a defenseless player was called on Harrison County.  
    This penalty, which appeared to many to be a dead ball foul, was called as a live ball foul and took the points off of the score board.

  • Nighthawks migrating south

    It was late summer in 2005 when I experienced nighthawks for the first time.  In fact, it was the only time I had seen them peppering the sky until last weekend.  
    On both occasions it was late afternoon, but this year the sky was bright so we watched the nighthawks against a clear blue back ground as they moved about.  
    Since I had seen and identified the nighthawks back in 2005, I knew immediately what was in the sky as more then  two dozen birds soared about in mesmerizing configurations.
