    The Thorobreds, who defeated the Wildcats three weeks ago in Falmouth, 83-65, jumped to an early double digit lead and never trailed, beating Pendleton County, 69-52.

  • Tree assessment and risk management

    Two weeks ago I asked “what more Mother Nature?”  Well, another gusty wind storm was served up adding to the collection of debris left by the ice storm.

    These criteria may help you decide what to do now and in the future.

  • McGinnis retires as circuit judge

    Harrison County Circuit Judge Robert McGinnis is stepping down, but not really.

    McGinnis retired on Jan. 31. However, he was assigned as a Senior Status Judge for the 18th Judicial Circuit, from which he retired, the very next day.

    McGinnis said he wanted to continue as the circuit judge for Harrison, Pendleton, Nicholas and Robertson counties, but the senior status judge program was going to expire. He wanted to be part of that program.

    “I wasn’t ready for retirement,” McGinnis said. “I hadn’t even thought about it.”
