  • Where did we go wrong?

    I do not often watch ESPN especially the talk shows because they bore me to tears usually but this morning I did.  I wish that I hadn’t.  
    It might be my age or just my general attitude, but 30 minutes spent on what would make a multi-millionaire basketball player happy is simply ridiculous. After all, he is playing a child’s game in short pants and being paid millions of dollars so why wouldn’t he be happy?

    Harrison County is the 38th District champion for 2019 following a two-day district tournament held in Nicholas County.  The Saturday 10-6 win over Robertson County didn’t come without some tense moments as the 9-12 Black Devils did not go out without quite a struggle.  
    As expected, the Breds jumped out to a lead scoring four times in the bottom of the first on four straight base hits.  The big blow was a two run home run by Chris O’Neal.
