    The Harrison County Thorobreds fumbled the ball five times Friday at North Laurel and lost two of them on the way to a disappointing 24-19 loss to the South Laurel Cardinals (1-1).  

    In a game played in very warm conditions, the ball was slick for both sides as the Cardinals fumbled four times but recovered each of those.

    For the Harrison County soccer Breds it isn’t a matter of what team they are playing as much as what players will be healthy and remain healthy enough to play the match.  

    Last Tuesday at Rowan County, the Thorobreds were a couple of players short to start the game but still they played well.

  • Asters, the perfect fall perennial

    If you plan accordingly you can have more than mums blooming in your fall garden.  There are a considerable number of other “late-bloomers” to choose from for the perennial garden. 

    Coreopsis, salvia, dahlias and helianthus continue to bloom well into fall just as the caryopteris, Japanese anemone, sedum, ageratum, golden rod and sweet autumn clematis start to show their color.  

    Couple all these perennials with asters and your garden will keep you entertained through October.
