Dear Editor
Cov Cath fan tips hat to Cats Print E-mail

To whom it may concern,

As a Covington Catholic fan, I would like to tip my hat to the Pendleton County varsity football players.

You know it's easy to play and to practice if your a CovCath or HHS football player, as you know your going to go into most games you play with a better than even chance to win or to blow out your opponent!

But what about the players from PC who work their butts off much like the HHS or CovCath kids do but know that your going to lose or get blown out in most games but yet you still show up and you still practice hard and don't quit, even when the score is 56-0.

I honestly wonder how many players on the CovCath or HHS team if put on the PC team would work as hard as these young men from PC do.

I tip my cap to you the members of the 2012 Pendleton County Wildcats Varsity Football team. Keep up the hard work and remember there are people out there who notice more than just W/L and who appreciate the sweat, hard work and effort you give!

Congrats, for while you lost on the scoreboard, you didn't lose on Saturday, indeed you won by trying and giving it everything you had!

Wildcats football team earns respect of athletic director Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

Our football players and staff have garnered much respect from me this year. They work their tails off every day in practice and have the best attitudes.  They are learning lessons as young men that have and will improve them for the rest of their life.  While many see the score and wonder what impression they are leaving on the teams they are facing, here is two great examples that show you that these young men and their coaches are representing Pendleton County to the highest level irrelevant of what the score might be.

To improve the character of your players and to help them to develop into the young men or ladies that need to grow into is the TRUE MEASURE of the success of an athletic team.  Our Wildcat Football team is a proven success!

Richard Nelson offers opinion: "politics is not a spectator sport" Print E-mail

The biggest news in the sports world over the past three weeks regards replacement referees in the NFL. Complaints over poor officiating reached a fever pitch after a horrendous last-second call cost my hometown Green Bay Packers a victory last Monday night. In the big scheme of things, it was only a game. The regular referees are back on the job and all seems right with the NFL. But… there is something more important than pro-sports, close games and officiating crews. It’s the November election. And a lot more rides on that contest than on what happened last Monday night.

Knoxville Christian picked up trash Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

The Knoxville Christian Church recently picked up trash on Jagg and Fairview Road. We were very pleased to see that we found very little trash on Jagg Road. Thanks to everyone who has been helping keep this road clean. Always remember to find a proper diposal for your trash. If everyone threw their trash out the window, this world would be a dirty place.

Knoxville Baptist youth helping to keep Falmouth clean Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

I am  very thankful to Pendleton County's 109 Board for the opportunity to pick up trash along the Ed Monroe Road in Falmouth with my church youth group and parents. It gives me a lot of joy to know that I'm helping out my community while raising money for our youth mission camps and events! While doing trash pickup, found a lot of fast food containers and drink bottles/cans. On behalf of the youth at Knoxville Baptist Church, I ask that you please respect your community and do not litter!

Pendleton County Youth Recreation Football helped keep our community beautiful with a litter pick up on July 28, covering five miles of Knoxville-Gardnersville Road.

Thirty-one football players, cheerleaders, their parents and coaches filled 49 bags of trash. It was an extremely positive experience, for all involved, especially for the children as the PC Youth Football program strives to help them with valuable life lessons.

Remember to go vote in November Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

In February 2011, there was what I saw on the news, an almost  riot like protests at the Wisconsin state capitol. These weren't radical sub groups of society. The protesters were Wisconsin state employees. They were protesting the bill that their newly elected republican governor was pushing through to balance the states budget.
