  • We'd be foolish not to trust the Lord

    Have you ever known someone who was completely trustworthy?

  • Fillies return veteran squad for 2014-15 season

    Jordan Doram and Hayley Perkins are gone from last year’s Harrison County Fillies team, which takes away nearly 20 points and 11 rebounds per game.  
    Most programs would be crying the blues, but not the Harrison County Fillies.  
    Coach Kim Furnish, while admitting the two graduated players meant a lot to the program, is upbeat and optimistic about the returning players.  

  • Woodford County subdues Breds 20-0 in regular season finale

    The Woodford County Yellowjackets won their third straight football game Friday night by defeating the Harrison County Thorobreds, 20-0, in the Athletic Complex.  
    The game was a defensive battle with the Breds only able to generate 25 total yards for the entire ballgame against the huge Yellowjackets’ line up.  
    The game also saw senior quarterback Mark Taylor go down with a knee injury, which will more than likely prevent him from playing in the Friday playoff game at Johnson Central.

  • Harrison County Marching Band to compete Saturday in the MSBA championships

    The Harrison County Marching Band wrapped up its season last weekend with a 13th place finish in the semifinals of the Kentucky Music Educators Association competition.
    “We are so proud of the way the kids performed today,” said band director, John Merz after Saturdays performance at Bourbon County.  “The performance today was clearly stronger than last week.”
    The HCHS band competed the week prior in the quarterfinals, also at Bourbon County.

  • Continuing from last week

    I had quite a bit of positive response from last week’s article, which tells me that some people at least agree that changing coaches is not always the answer.  
    Billy Gillispie comes to mind in place of Tubby Smith.  
    How many were anxious for Tubby to leave only to wish like heck he was still at UK just a year or less later?  
    Also to consider is the time that it takes to change a program’s direction ala Rich Brooks or Coach Stoops, who, despite their best efforts, took years for Brooks and Stoops still is in the process.
