    Story’s father, Ray, was a friend of my late brother Jim when my brother was chairman of the Hardin County School Board.

    Bowlers split with Bourbon County Sunday
    The Harrison County bowling team split its matches with Bourbon County Sunday, but the girls’ team is coming closer to winning each week.  
    On Sunday, the Lady Colonels edged the Fillies bowlers by only a 3-4 score winning total points by only 172 pins. The Fillies took the second and fourth head-to-head matches and the first Baker’s game. They only lost the second Baker’s game by five pins or the total pins would not have mattered.
