  • Thorobreds rout Paris 46-6 with big running attack

    The Harrison County football Thorobreds ran rough shod over the youthful Paris Greyhounds Friday night in Paris by a 46-6 margin. 

    The game was never close as the home-standing Hounds took the opening kickoff and, after not picking up the first down on a fourth down running play deep in their own territory, turned the ball over to the Breds. 

    On the first play from scrimmage, quarterback Joe Korona ran the ball 17 yards for the first score of the game and the Breds were on the way to victory.

  • Hold your horses fans, broadcasters, this is September

    Listening to the announcers last night (Monday) during the rousing Boise State last touchdown drive, one would have thought that it was January 2011 and the national championship was being decided. 

    Sure the Broncos traveled across the country to play Virginia Tech on a neutral field in Landover, Md., and came away with a victory, but there are many things to consider. 

    First, as I said, this is September and no national champs in football are crowned in September.

  • Public records will always be public information

    An elderly man walked into my office several years ago demanding that I tell him why I would print his grandson’s DUI in the paper.

    I hadn’t been editor long, but I knew the answer.

    “It’s public record,” I said. “We print records without exception.”

    He leaned into my desk from where he towered above me, pointed his finger in my face and declared... “This place ain’t nothin’ that a can of gas and match wouldn’t take care of.”

  • Fillies soccer continues rough schedule, wins one of four last week

    After losing to Franklin County Thursday, 2-0, Harrison County Fillies Coach Kim Jenkins decided to try a new formation to generate more offense. 

    The Fillies were tied with the Flyers at the half nil-nil, but just could not score and Franklin County came away with the victory. 

    The Fillies then traveled to Bowling Green to play in the Purples Classic on Friday and played three games in 24 hours. The first opponent was the Lady Trojans of North Hardin, which came into the match with a 2-5 record, but defeated the Fillies 0-2.
