  • I’m never too busy to think about sports

    My weekend was full of wedding events, but I’m never too busy to think about sports. 

    The football Breds host a first round playoff game Friday night and I encourage all of you to go and support them. My football officiating crew will be calling a game somewhere other than here or I would go myself. The young people and the coaching staff deserve your support.

     Halloween’s arrival is usually greeted with cool, crisp evenings and an array of colorful leaves – and this year should be no exception. For weeks, many of us are consumed with carving pumpkins; decorating with fodder shocks and fall’s vegetables; attending costume parties, and, of course, trick or treating.

  • Breds ground Flyers bringing record to 5-4 on the season

    The Harrison County Thorobreds traveled to Franklin County Friday night to take on former Coach Aaron Stepp and the Flyers.

    The Breds were fresh off back-to-back district wins, while the Flyers had dropped two straight and were eliminated from post-season play.

    As the game started, Franklin County looked to be taking out the frustrations of a one-win season on the Breds as they methodically marched down the field on an 11-play, 70-yard drive resulting in a 10-yard touchdown run by Ryan Timmons.

    Each week I plan to express some opinion on a subject or two that matter to me that I hope the reader will find interesting.  Since it has been years since I wrote for the paper and the audience may have changed, let me reacquaint you with me. 

    I grew up in Tell City, Ind., a small Swiss German community. Tell City is home to some familiar names to University Of Kentucky fans. One of Rupp’s Runts, Tommy Kron, was from Tell City, as is Steve Lochmueller, who later played for Joe B. Hall.
