  • A couple happenings

    It’s only Monday and I can’t get some issues out of my mind, some good, some not so good in my opinion.  
    I am going to write about each of them if only to think my way through them if for no other reason.
    First the positive because it is always good to find positive thoughts on Monday.
    The Harrison County cheerleaders finished 12th in the nation on Sunday. That is good, maybe great or even grand.
