    When you don’t drink and don’t smoke, you need some type of vice other than working too much.

    From the time I can remember, one of my escapes in life has been the human soap opera with athletes - more commonly known as professional wrestling.

    With the way the school schedule falls this week, the opening meets will serve as more a tune-up. The real season will begin when school resumes next Monday.

    HEBRON ESTATES – It’s a feel-good story. Bullitt Countians helping a fellow Bullitt Countian. It’s an older kid helping out a younger kid.
