  • Concerned family should get involved with school’s PTO

    To the editor:

    I would like to respond to the grandparent that was told that the PTO is responsible for getting playground equipment. The PTO is an organization that assists the school in buying computer programs, playground equipment, and materials/resources needed to help our teachers teach. I do not understand what she meant by competition. There is no competition between the PTOs. Fundraisers are held to raise money for all of the requests that they are given. The PTO then has to decide what they can pay for.

  • Breds host Pendleton Saturday

    After an unscheduled week off, the Harrison County Thorobreds are back on the field this Saturday for their first district encounter of the season when they play host to Pendleton County.

    Last Friday, the Breds had their game with Bardstown cancelled as a district-wide flu epidemic forced school officials to dismiss from school on Thursday and Friday.

    The edict meant that all school activities were postponed as well.

    The day after my niece’s wedding, my sister and I went to the California desert town of Temecula.

    When I was growing up, Temecula was nothing but sand and tumbleweeds. Today, it looks like most every modern suburban sprawl with a CVS and Burger King on nearly every corner.

    My sister and I went to the restored old town of Temecula, with its cute boutiques, restaurants and antique stores.
