  • Don’t be grudgin’ and judgin’

    There’s this woman.
    I’ve only met her in person two or three times, but she and I belong to the same professional organization of women authors and speakers, so I see her name continually.
    About 10 or so years ago she did something that I thought was reprehensible and I took great pleasure in knowing it’s one of God’s top 10 “thou shalt nots” and that she would one day reap what she had sown.
    That’s not just karma; that’s biblical — a double whammy.

  • Yellowjackets sting Breds Tuesday night in Versailles

    A tough, aggressive, swarming bunch of Woodford County Yellowjackets ran over the Harrison County Thorobreds Tuesday night taking a 55-47 victory.  
    The first half was all Woodford County as they moved the ball on offense getting good shots and hitting them and played hard-nosed defense limiting Harrison County.  

  • Injuries doom Fillies, Lady Cougars run away with the win

    The long bus trip north began without senior guard Emalee Little so the Fillies knew they were going to be shorthanded. Little, who was injured in the Montgomery County game, was in therapy Tuesday as the bus pulled away pointing toward Conner.  But Harrison County was compensating for the absence at guard trailing by only one at 14-13 at the end of the first period facing the powerhouse Lady Cougars (17-4).  

  • Cheerleaders win region in small squad, runners-up in medium squad

    The first time that Harrison County’s cheer team has been able to have two squads in the Regional KAPOS Competition was this past Sunday at Nicholas County.  
    The team divided into two squads, the small with 12 cheerleaders and the medium with 15. Four of the cheerleaders, two from each squad were named all region as they led their squads to outstanding performances.
    The small squad was named 10th Region Champions in their division.  

  • Eighth grade Colts advance to conference tournament

    The Harrison County Colts eighth grade team wrapped up an undefeated regular conference season Thursday night while the seventh grade team came up one game short.
    It took a tie breaker to determine the second place team that advanced to the tournament in the southern seventh grade division and Powell County’s team was the winner due to a victory over Bourbon County who was the division winner.  
    The seventh grade Colts put themselves in position to advance with a win over Bourbon Thursday night by hammering Conkwright on Wednesday 23-7.  

  • Great respect for Joe Paterno

    I saw a note on Facebook today that made me think about the legacy of Joe Paterno. Paterno, for anyone who has maybe been out of the country (world) in the past few months, was the football coach at Penn State since the ball was leather and not a pig’s bladder.  
    Two months ago, Paterno was removed as coach by the State College Pennsylvania institution people in charge because of what was perceived as inaction in light of an ugly sex abuse charge against one of his former assistants.  

  • Sports beat

    Colts advance to semis with
    rout of Royal Springs
    The quarter final round of the Bluegrass Conference Tournament was a game the Titans of Royal Springs will not want to remember.
    The 19-2 Harrison County Colts scored the first eight points en route to a 56-25 win over Royal Springs. Floor leader Brock Jenkins scored the first six points in the quarter, which was all Harrison County. In fact, the visitors scored only one field goal in the first half as Harrison County led 25-6 at the end of the second quarter.
