  • Opening the door to sin lets the devil get his foot in and take over

    For the past few months we’ve been taking care of our youngest daughter’s two cats, Mohawk and Target, while our daughter spends some time with my sister in California.
    They’re both gray tabby cats, each about 10 years old.
    My husband calls Mohawk “Hawkeye” or “Hawk” and I’ve nicknamed Target “the weasel” because he’s long and he slinks through the house like I imagine a weasel would.
    Lately, we’ve noticed another cat hanging around, white with butterscotch coloring.

  • Cross country runs in cold, rain in Williamstown Invitational

    Mike Aldridge,

    Saturday was hardly a day with ideal conditions for a cross country meet. However, the Harrison County Middle and High School cross country runners competed in the Williamstown Invitational despite the conditions.  
    The high school had only two boys, Thomas Morris and Gannon Terhune, compete in the race with 101 other young men.  
    Morris ran the 5K race in 24:05 followed by Terhune in 26:57.  


    From the mouths of young people come the most surprising and sometimes disturbing comments. The quote that I titled my article with was one such comment.  
    Through the generosity and effort of Rick Florence, many of the players from the Harrison County Middle School football Colts were able to attend the Bengals versus Chiefs game last Sunday.  

  • Prayer is a winning strategy in the game of life

    My family and I were outside playing a friendly game of football recently. I say “friendly” because it sounds nice. When, in all actuality, I am a momma who plays to win.
    Now, you probably don’t know this about me, nor would you think it if you saw my smaller frame, but I have got some skill. It is not my quick feet or my massive strength or even my knowledge of football (which is questionable) that leads me to be victorious. My skill is strategy.

  • Volleyball continues strong play; sweeps Robertson, Fleming

    Mike Aldridge,

    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball team defeated Robertson County and Fleming County in three-to-nothing set sweeps to improve their record to 19-10 for the year.  
    The Robertson County match played last Thursday was not a match of particular beauty for the Fillies but a win never the less.  

  • Scott Eagles fly through the rain and defeat Breds Friday, 43-0

    Mike Aldridge,
    Sports Writer

    Inclement weather had been a friend to the Harrison County Thorobreds until Friday night.  
    The 2-5 Thorobreds won both of their games in the rain and were hoping that last Friday’s weather was a good omen.  
    That was not the case, however, as the 6-1 Scott High Eagles made quick work of the Breds in a 43-0 win.  
    The rain-slick ball gave the Breds all kind of problems.
