  • Raggedy Ann Festival is Saturday

    If you plan to be in downtown Cynthiana on Saturday, don’t be surprised to see little girls in cotton jumpers with red yarn hair.

    It’s the time of year to celebrate a piece of Harrison County heritage.

    The annual Raggedy Ann Festival will jump out of the starting gate on Saturday at 8 a.m. with a 5K run.

    Following the race, at 9 a.m., the opening ceremony will be held along with the awarding of race trophies.

  • Acclimate plants as they move outdoors

    I am particularly anxious to move some of my houseplants outdoors this spring. The gardenia that I have had for over 12 years looks terrible. It needs the restorative environment of the great outdoors:  more light, warmth, higher relative humidity and rain water.

    I am not sure whether the cold house during the January ice storm/no electricity episode has had an impact on it or if it was just coincidence that it began to die back shortly thereafter. In any case, it needs to be pruned up and sent outside to recover.

  • Fillies drop Bluejackets, 7-4

    The Harrison County Fillies softball team defeated district foe Nicholas County, 7-4, last Thursday on the road in Carlisle.

    The Fillies wasted no time in the first inning capitalizing on several Nicholas County miscues.

    Lorraine Dennie started off the inning by reaching first on an error. However, a fielder’s choice by Michelle Carson sent Dennie to the dug out. Rachel Hatfield singled and was followed by Charley Hatfield, who reached first on another Nicholas County error, which brought Carson across the plate.

  • McDonald’s Classic begins tonight

    The toughest opponent the Harrison County Thorobreds have faced this year is not ranked in the state coaches poll. It is not a particularly good hitting, pitching or fielding team… it doesn’t even wear uniforms.

    Far and away the toughest opponent the Breds have had to contend with, is Mother Nature.

    In the past week and a half, Harrison County has played three games, and those were in less than 24 hours at the Greenup County Bash. Harrison County was rained out last Thursday, this Monday and Tuesday.
