  • Slumping Breds fall to Creekers

    Harrison County baseball coach Mac Whitaker is not a happy man.

    With just more than a week and a half left in the regular season, his Thorobreds have still not shown the consistency, especially at the plate, that his previous championship teams have had.

    Tuesday night on the Hilltop, his Thorobreds were soundly defeated by visiting Tates Creek, 9-1, as their season record slipped to 15-7.

  • Conduct and chivalry absent at Harrison County High School

    To the editor:

    On a spring afternoon, an old soldier gave his last address to the cadets at West Point. In it, General Douglas MacArthur reminded them of a great moral code. “A code of conduct and chivalry that will be with me... always.” Unhappily, General MacArthur’s famous words are not fully executed at Harrison County High School.

  • ‘Our girl’s still hanging in there’

    Is everyone as hooked on America’s Next Top Model and I am?

    Well, it’s not just any “top”  model, it’s our own Celia Ammerman.

    I haven’t missed a show.

    On Wednesday, supper has to be over and the dishes cleared and washed by 8 p.m. That’s when the strikingly beautiful Celia fills the Barnes’ television screen.

    I wonder, when the judges are harsh or the other girls have their claws out, just how Mom and Dad (Meg and Bob Ammerman) are reacting.

  • Texting option may be added to police dispatch services

    Harrison Countians may be welcoming an additional dispatch service in the next few months.

    At Monday evening’s Champions for a Drug Free Harrison County, members voted to use $500 of a $5,614 state grant to help fund a ‘411’ service for the county.

    The ‘411’ service will allow cell phone users to text messages to the 911 dispatch center, where those messages will be forwarded to the proper law enforcement.

    Citizens will also be able to e-mail dispatch over the Internet with any information regarding criminal activity.
