  • Rain foils coaches' plans

    Rain is a good thing. I understand that. Without water we couldn’t exist. Some parts of the world could use the rain right now because of drought.

    Not us though. We’ve had plenty of rain. In fact if you are a softball and baseball fan, coach or player, you just wish the rain would stop long enough to get a game in.

    The Henry County softball and baseball teams are among those who are sick and tired of H2O falling from the sky.
