  • Stamper celebrates 50-plus years behind the pulpit

    It is one thing to celebrate an 85th birthday and another to celebrate over 50 years of doing the same heavenly thing.
    Brother Paul Stamper will soon be 85 years old, but that is not what he is most proud of.
    Stamper has devoted the last 50-plus years of his life to churches by taking his rightful and familiar place behind the pulpit.
    “Years ago I was able to stand before a congregation and recite scripture for almost an hour,” said Stamper. “I was very proud that I not only knew the scripture but what it meant too.”

  • 75 years together

    Seldom does anything stand the test of time, but try telling that to James and Mary Reffett.
    The two not only have managed to keep their health and keen minds for over 90 years, they have done it together.
    Over 75 years ago, young James and his friend peaked through a country church window at two young girls sitting in a pew by themselves.
    “Let’s go and see if they will let us sit with them,” recalled James.

  • Brown indicted again

    On the heels of entering not guilty pleas to indictments in Harrison and Lawrence counties, Kay Brown now faces charges in a third county.
    A Johnson County grand jury issued an indictment last Wednesday on two counts of second degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.
    According to the indictment, on April 8, 2011, Brown was allegedly in possession of a  forged U.S. Treasury check made to James A. Brown, with the intent to defraud.

  • Fillies win first victory at Williamstown

    Coach Kim Furnish said after Wednesday’s game that she had finally got the demon off her back.  
    Maybe it was a Lady Demon because Furnish and her Harrison County Fillies picked up their first win of the season over the Lady Demons of Williamstown, 70-56, Wednesday.  
    The win improved the Fillies to 1-6 and dropped the freshman-laden Lady Demons to 3-6 for the season.

  • Thorobreds split games in Stop DWI Classic in Covington

    The Harrison County Thorobreds played some of their better basketball of the young season as they lost a tight game on Friday to Covington Holmes and then won a cliff hanger on Saturday with Russell.
    Friday saw the Breds lose to the host school, Holmes, 82-73, after a hard-fought game that saw Harrison County give one of the state’s top teams all they wanted for the contest.  
    The Breds took an early lead in the game and led late into the first period before Holmes went on an 11-point run to take a 16-10 lead to a 16-21 deficit.  

  • Let’s have a Happy New Year and a home court advantage

    When the Fillies traveled to Williamstown last Wednesday and won their first game of the year, I was reminded of what a good home court advantage can do for a high school team.  
    While it is true that the Lady Demons lost this home game, what little crowd that was in attendance supporting them made its presence known.
    When the Fillies went to the locker room for final instructions before the game, the Williamstown band practiced a 30-second song and a one minute ditty while the teams were in the locker room.
