Harmony Grove continued their quest to another conference title on Tuesday when they played host to Cutter Morning Star. Unfortunately, only one team was to show up against the Eagles.

The Lady Cardinals started the night for Harmony Grove and on a very high note, especially for their confidence, beating the Lady Eagles 45-32 to get to 2-4 in conference play.

January 11, 2012

I want to thank the Saline Courier for inviting me to write for them. I look forward to many discussions with you all about my opinions on various topics. Just a little about myself for those of you who don’t know me - I’m a small business owner, the husband of a school teacher, and a father of two great kids. As I complete my first year in elected office as your 15th Lieutenant Governor, I could not be more proud to be an Arkansan.
This week I’d like to explain why I chose to endorse Governor Mitt Romney for President.

January 11, 2012

The Bauxite Lady Miners held the Pulaski Robinson Lady Senators to six points in the second half in defeating them 48-24 in 7-4A conference action on Tuesday at Fred Dawson Gym in Bauxite.

“Defensively, I didn’t think we played bad,” Bauxite Coach Josh Harrison said. “We were out of position a few times, especially in the press. I thought we did a pretty decent job of scrambling and hustling defensively. Out of the press, we had some people out of position and a few people not rotating quick enough. They got a few deep passes and some easy shots there early.”
