  • A. Keller Dam improvements pursued

    An avid fisherman, Dustin Rose said he has enjoyed the Licking River ever since he moved to Harrison County in 1999.

    “When I first came to town, there was always somebody down there fishing,” Rose said about the state-maintained boat ramp at River Road.

  • Thorobreds put Hounds on ice 55-47

    It was cold both inside and outside the gym Saturday night when the Harrison County Thorobreds hosted the Paris Greyhounds. Geoff Cody’s Hounds found the Thorobred defense to be quite a challenge as they hit only 29 percent for the game while Harrison County hit on only 34 percent. 

    The Breds shooting woes were a combination of poor shot selection and the goal seemingly having a lid on it. 

    Paris took an early lead, at one time leading by six, but Harrison County pulled out the win, 55-47.
