  • Thieves strip wheels from truck on car lot

    It will be hard to drive one 2009 Chevrolet Avalanche off the H.A. Jones car lot.

    It has no wheels.

    “We have thefts,” said manager Yogi Brown Monday afternoon. “Every car lot has thefts.”

    When salesman Ollie Taylor went to work Monday morning, he found the Avalanche resting on concrete blocks, without wheels.

    “We’ve never had this happen,” said Brown, noting that often spare tires and radios are stolen from the vehicles.

  • Marshall ‘Ignites’ pro hopefuls

    By his own admission, Clif Marshall, was not one of the fastest running backs in Harrison County High School football history.  In spite of his lack of blazing speed, Marshall is in the unique position of helping prospective NFL players earn thousands, if not millions, of dollars by improving their own 40-yard dash time by fractions of a second.

  • HCMS Soccer undefeated

    The Harrison County Middle School boys’ soccer team finally surrendered a goal on Tuesday night, but is undefeated in Bluegrass Conference play with a couple of weeks left in the season.

    The 8th Grade Colts are currently 8-0-1 on the season and have two home games left in the regular season, before beginning post-season tournament play.

    On Tuesday, they defeated Royal Springs Middle School 3-1, and allowed their only goal of the year, a penalty kick goal after a questionable foul call inside the box.
