  • Breds open with 35-7 win over Fleming County Friday

    The 2013 football season got off to a rousing success Friday night as the Harrison County Thorobreds ran for five touchdowns in a 35-7 rout of the Fleming County Panthers.  
    Zach Mastin and Robbie Stroub each ran for two scores and Justin Hunter ran for one as Harrison County ran for 335 yards for the ball game.
    Hunter opened the scoring with just two minutes gone on a two-yard run after Fleming County had turned the ball over with a punt on their fourth down.   

  • Soccer Fillies win one, lose one, and make a trip to Anderson County

    The Harrison County Fillies followed their season opening win over Mason County with a trip to Anderson County to face the Lady Bearcats on Wednesday.  
    Unfortunately, after driving the long trip to Lawrenceburg the weather turned sour and the match was cancelled.  
    On Saturday, the strong Russell Lady Devils remained undefeated for the season with a 3-0 victory over the Fillies.  
    Russell scored with 27 minutes to play in the first half on a pass from the corner that was kicked into the goal past the Fillies goal keeper.  


    Fifty years ago Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech before a quarter-million people in the famous March on Washington became emblematic of the entire civil rights movement. It was the largest demonstration ever in the nation’s capital and made Dr. King a permanent symbol in the struggle for equality among the races in this country.

  • Soccer Breds finish second in Thorobred Classic taking 2 of 3

    The Tuesday night defeat of Holy Cross in shootout fashion was not enough to carry the Harrison County Thorobreds to the championship of their own Thorobred Classic as Bishop Brossart ran rough shod over the field for three wins and the trophy.  
    Thursday night was the face off between the two top teams in the Classic, the Breds and the Mustangs. The Mustangs scored first as the Breds, playing without Logan Wiley who received a red card on Tuesday and was out for this and the Bourbon County match, were working on finding the right combination.  

  • Thorobred golfers split 2 matches, Fillies lose by three strokes

    The Pendleton County team is highly thought of in the region and Harrison County battled them tooth and nail before losing by eight strokes, 183 to 175.  
    Will Hicks lead the Thorobreds with 44 in the match played at the Pendleton County Country Club.  

  • One poor decision leads to a very good one

    I do not like to dwell on the negative so this week I am writing about a great decision that was made by the Cynthiana/Harrison County Parks and Recreation Board.  
    The decision to hire Darrell Baxter as the new director followed a mistake made in hiring someone that “is not from here.”  
    I am not always for hiring from within the county because for some jobs there may not be the best candidate here and being from here is not as important for some jobs as it is for the director of the Parks and Recreation.  

  • Cross country opens with scrimmage in Versailles

    “I like what I see, said Coach Danny Simpson after the Harrison County cross country scrimmage at Woodford County. “Our athletes are working hard and working together to continue to improve.”
