  • Track teams find going difficult at Bryan Station Invitational

    The Harrison County High School track teams found going difficult as they competed in the Bryan Station Invitational on Saturday. 

    It had been an unusually difficult week of preparation as the Woodford County meet having been called off and school being out two days kept regular practice at a minimum. 

    Add the cold temperatures and high winds of Saturday to the mix and conditions were less than favorable for the Fillies and Thorobreds competitors. But compete they did... a finishing in eighth place in the girls and 10th in the boys of the 17-team field.

  • Fringe tree is perfect spring bloomer for home landscape

    The beacon of spring in these parts is undoubtedly the native dogwood. But, there are other notable spring bloomers worth consideration in the home landscape. What about Halesia or Chionanthus, commonly known as Carolina silverbell and fringe tree, respectively.

    Both trees are native to the southeast United States and are well-suited to Kentuckiana’s climate. They are perfect for home landscapes because they are small to medium in size.

  • ‘Pull lever one’ for Fuller

    To the editor:

    On May 18, Harrison County residents will be going to the polls to cast their votes for a vital office within the law enforcement community.

    I know all three candidates and am friends with all three as well. 

    I am supporting Roger Fuller to be our Sheriff and ask you to do the same. Roger began his career as a teenager dispatching for the Cynthiana Police Department and then became a dispatcher for the Kentucky State Police/Dry Ridge until his acceptance to become a State Trooper. 

  • Does God punish his people?

    The other day I told a pastor friend about the time God put me in Time Out.

    I had gone to speak at a church women’s event, and at the time I thought I was the second coming of Beth Moore, a superstar Bible teacher with an almost cult-like following.

    I went expecting that, after the event, I’d be hoisted onto people’s shoulders and carried through the streets to shouts of “Hooray for Nancy!”
