  • Breds stay unbeaten in Kentucky

    The weather refused to cooperate and the Frank Shoop Classic this past weekend was aborted, but Harrison County managed to get two games in anyway, winning both and extending its winning streak to five straight games.

    Harrison County got the first night of the tournament in on Thursday night, defeating Conner 11-5 in the first game, with Estill County turning back Beechwood 13-9 in the nightcap.

  • Wilson family thankful for help after fire takes house

    To the editor:

    Most of you already know that Thomas, D.J. and I lost everything we owned in a house fire on Monday, March 16. We have so many people to offer our thanks to.

    First of all, I would like to thank all those who called and reported the fire. We’d like to thank Brad Marshall and Joe (our mailman) for knocking on doors and windows to make sure nobody was home. Next, we want to thank the firefighters for all they did for us. Personally, myself, I want to thank Robert Newcomb for comforting me and giving me support when I needed it most.

  • The Masters, ‘a trip we will always cherish’

    Well, did you see my wife and me this past weekend?

    We were right there, along with about 50,000 other people, at the Augusta National Golf Course, site of the annual Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta, Ga.

    With tickets to the Masters as hard to find as hen’s teeth, Kelly and I stumbled upon two tickets to the Masters as a local friend who has gone for years, was unable to stay for the final two rounds of the four-round event. He asked if we were interested in meeting him in Augusta after the second round and then attending the Saturday and Sunday rounds.
