  • Lady Jackets handle Stone, 9-1

    Last Tuesday, the Kingston Lady Yellow Jackets felt they let a win slip away as they dropped a 5-4 decision at Stone Memorial.

  • Bobcats take two from Midway

    Midway High School has a reputation as one of the toughest places for visitors to play in the area as entering Saturday’s doubleheader with Oliver Springs, the Green Wave had won 20 straight games at home dating back to the 2010 season.
    That home field advantage didn’t intimidate the Bobcats, however, as Tony Kegley’s squad swept the Green Wave, winning game one, 9-1, and game two, 9-8.
    “It’s big to come in here and get a sweep,” Kegley said. “They’re really tough at home and hadn’t lost a game at home this year”.

  • Harriman Happenings: March 26

    Last week during spring school break, Carolyn Clemmons’ son Roy gave her a trip to the Isle of Palms near Charleston, S.C. Her hotel was on the beach, and it was so beautiful.

    Carolyn and some friends toured the old plantations, took a horse carriage ride, went to the open-air markets and ate lots of seafood. This was a great vacation.

  • ’Round Rockwood: March 26

    Another possum story I have to tell you: this 90-year-old lady grew up on a small farm in the community of Swan Pond, where possums were plentiful. Even some folks enjoyed hunting them for food.

    Among them was a nearby neighbor who not only hunted them but also enjoyed the tasty meat!

    He didn’t know how to cook anything, let alone a possum, so he brings it over to our house and ask my Mama to cook it for him.
