What fun it was to sit and watch a softball game played by 8 and under girls Monday night at Sam Coopwood Park. The Holly Springs team played the Potts Camp team. There was a lot of action between the two teams, both offensively and defensively. The play of the night would have to go to Erin Lomenick, daughter of Penny and Bob Lomenick. She plays on the pitcher’s mound. She caught a pop fly delivered from the batter, ran a girl down heading from third to home and then took off towards the short stop and tagged the girl coming over from second base. A triple play!! It was a great thing to see in action! Both teams played really well for such young girls. Congratulations to all of the girls for giving it their all and really digging in to get the win. Holly Springs walked away with the victory.

The movie theatres
When I was in the third grade, Miss Sally Cochran was my teacher and what a teacher she was! She was very strict and made you learn whether you wanted to or not. I never did see them, but she must have had eyes in the back of her head. One day she was writing on the board and all of a sudden she wheeled around and slung the eraser flying through the air at Frances Newsom, who was talking. Frances saw that eraser coming and ducked and the eraser hit Russell Cook right in the face. Everybody thought it was really funny, except Russell and Miss Sally.
