Dirt Angel

It’s Saturday night, October 1st, at Cedar Ridge Speedway—the final night of the season for the Butler County track.  Trucks pulling trailers loaded with dirt track cars have been arriving all afternoon.  Around the track, seasoned drivers and pit crews unload open wheel and stock cars.  Haley Westerfield is talking to her mom, Misty, who is working registration.  Haley is waiting for her dad, Jimmy, to show up with her blue number H1 ride.  It’s the last place you would expect to find an eighteen-year-old former cheerleader (eight years at Ohio County schools) and beauty pageant


Gaskey On the Mound At WKU

The stands at the WKU Softball Complex was full of Butler Countians on Saturday afternoon in support of former BCHS softball standout CheyAnne Gaskey.  Gaskey did not disappoint as she took the mound against WKU and came away with the win.

In her first collegiate start and win Gaskey pitched four innings and allowed no runs.

Bears 33-0 Bounce Back Win

The BCHS Bears improved to (6-1) overall with a key district win over the Union Co. Braves by the score of 33-0, Friday night at Morganfield, Ky.  The Bears most notable part of the game would have to be the defense. Tossing another shutout, the Bears almost seemed angry over the previous week.  Union Co. total offense on the night ended up in the negative category. That’s right, negative yardage; on the night Union Co. had only one first down, and a negative (-12) twelve yards total offense.


From the Sidelines Week #7

The Butler County Bears loaded the buses and headed to Union County on Friday night.  With the combination of a two hour road trip and the beginning of Fall Break the Butler County crowd was a little smaller than normal.  Fans may not of showed up for the game, several listened to the game on BTR 1570 AM WLBQ,  but the Bears did as they won 33-0.

Any time I fail to realize that I’ve landed in the ideal place for my writing I need only think of this. My editor is as prone to fits of non-output as is this writer.

The editor of which I speak is John Embry. John graces these pages with his own writings from time to time, but will be the first to tell you that he won’t write when he doesn’t feel it, isn’t in the mood, doesn’t have time, or just doesn’t have anything to say.
