  • In everything let us give thanks!

    Thanksgiving ... giving thanks ...
    In church last week Rhonda Strawzell led the children through an exercise with an acrostic. They had the word “T-H-A-N-K-S-G-I-V-I-N-G” printed on a piece of paper. As they read down the page, they hollered out something for which they were thankful that began with that letter.

     The Harrison County wrestling team will open the 2017-18 season with the annual Rumble on the Hilltop this Saturday morning, beginning with weigh-ins at 9 a.m.  
    This is an individual bracketed tournament with every effort to separate returning state participants to assure top notch wrestling in the semi-finals and finals.  

  • Grace Notes

    Recently, I listened to an eight-episode podcast (like an internet radio show) called “Oh Dear God.”
    Done by two young, thirtysomething women, they both grew up in the Christian faith.
    Today they like some of Christianity, but not all of it. Same goes for their feelings about the church.
    The women met at camp -- they love church camp -- and now they’re comedians who live in Los Angeles.

  • Fillies sink Lady Commodores in opener, 65-32

    The Harrison County Fillies with three players in double figure scoring and two with double figure rebounds rolled past Tates Creek Monday night in Lexington, 65-32. 
    The Fillies jumped out to a 19-9 first quarter lead as junior Madison Kellione scored 11 of her game high 23 in the opening stanza.  Both teams showed some first game jitters with 15 turnovers in the first period with the Lady Commodores committing nine of the miscues. 

  • Breds open at home with 71-51 loss to powerhouse LCA

    Lexington Christian Academy’s team was highly thought of going into last night’s season opener on the Hilltop against the Harrison County Thorobreds.  The Eagles of Region Eleven did nothing to change that opinion as they defeated the Breds,  71-51.
    It wasn’t easy for three quarters as the Breds overcame their rebounding deficit and height disadvantage to stay within 10 points until late in the third period.
