Well the CC boys sure played a good game against Harlan. This was sure to be an exciting game, and it was just that. I have to brag on our announcers.

I listened on the radio and felt all of the action as if I were there. It was an action packed game, and the Tigers represented our county well.

We sure have some good people in our county, ya know it? People that are true hero’s without the cape.

Speaking of which, my house goat whom is getting ready to make the outdoors his home, could be a superhero himself.

My husband tells me that if he escapes, then he needs a Superman cape- because he can only get out if he can fly. So I’ll keep you updated on that one.

We have hero’s of our own too. Maybe it’s a parent or grandparent. Maybe a friend that drops it all to be by your side. Maybe a hero that has saved you from something or rescued you. We have many hero’s in our county. They aren’t prideful or arrogant but truly just do good things with little or no recognition.

Now, I don’t know where all of this came from, I was wanting to brag on our basketball team. But I thought about how we should acknowledge good things.

Like a nice person that pays for your food in a drive thru and you’ll never know who they are. There are good people that don’t want recognition but when you do something well, I believe recognition is due. I like doing good deeds, it makes my heart full.

But when we have athletes that work so hard and give it their all, we as a county are enjoying watching their hard work. They are our entertainment and we want to brag on them. Sports are a lot of fun to watch, from kids to professional.

We never know when one of our own could go that far… so let’s try to support our local athletes. And speaking of hero’s, I’ll speak of my own, Shannon Garrett and Ms. Ruby Samples. I can’t brag enough about how faithful Shannon is to her church and the Celebrate Recovery program. And Ms. Ruby passed away last week. A good faithful woman of God that everyone I know admired.

“If everything was in your favor, if you did not have to surmount any great mountains, then you have nothing to be proud of. But if you feel that you have special difficulties, then you must indeed be proud of your achievement.”
