  • Who’s good and who’s bad?

    On occasion, I find myself wishing I could turn back the clock.
    Actually, turning back the clock is not what I want to do.
    I want to roll back the calendar until we reach the mid-1950s.
    Ah, those were the days. I was a kid and was not held responsible for adult matters.
    It was a simpler time — simpler because someone else was in charge, including in charge of me.
    There is something else inviting about the mid-1950s.

    The Henry County Wildcats had a light week in terms of how many games they played. But the two games they did play were very important in determining their postseason fate.

    The Wildcats defeated the Warriors 12-2 March 29 before falling to the Rebels 8-0 the following evening.

  • Warriors lose, 3-2, to Burgin
