  • Harrison County freshmen take 38th District championship with two wins

    In a rare doubleheader on Wednesday, the Harrison County freshmen basketball team won twice to nail down the 38th District Championship.  
    Pendleton County was the host school and used both the regular and auxiliary gyms to play the opening round games and then finished the one-day championship with the final in the high school gym.

  • Fillies lead entire game, defeat Lady Bluejackets

    The Harrison County Fillies had more than one opponent Friday night as they battled the Nicholas County Lady Bluejackets in Carlisle.  
    The other opponents were cold shooting from both the field and the three-point line and the ever-present foul trouble, which plagued the Fillies. Despite these issues and a valiant effort by Nicholas County, the Fillies were able to pull out a 51-45 win to improve to 7-18 for the year.
    Harrison County led at all stops in this game as the cold shooting didn’t start in the opening period.  

  • An apology, a congratulations and a concern

    This week I need to start with an apology to Zach Pulliam. In last week’s article about the Harrison County Middle School Colts’ championship I incorrectly referred to Zach as his older brother Dillon.    
    I know myself, as someone who had a younger brother who had to constantly hear about how wonderful I was, the error was made more painful by the frequency of Dillon’s name being in print and Zach as a younger brother having his time in the sun taken away. I am sorry for the error and believe me I would not do this on purpose.

  • Cynthiana will survive if everyone chips in

    A few weeks ago and friend posed the question: “What are we going to do about our town?”
    “Everything is closing,” said one of the ladies having lunch at Biancke’s.
    I agreed and we commiserated. Up to that point, I suppose I was in denial. It didn’t seem like a “we” problem.
    We talked about the bypass around Cynthiana and weighed its pros and cons, trying to determine if it will help or hinder.
