  • Breds ground Flyers bringing record to 5-4 on the season

    The Harrison County Thorobreds traveled to Franklin County Friday night to take on former Coach Aaron Stepp and the Flyers.

    The Breds were fresh off back-to-back district wins, while the Flyers had dropped two straight and were eliminated from post-season play.

    As the game started, Franklin County looked to be taking out the frustrations of a one-win season on the Breds as they methodically marched down the field on an 11-play, 70-yard drive resulting in a 10-yard touchdown run by Ryan Timmons.

  • Sports writer reacquaints with past audience

    Each week I plan to express some opinion on a subject or two that matter to me that I hope the reader will find interesting.  Since it has been years since I wrote for the paper and the audience may have changed, let me reacquaint you with me. 

    I grew up in Tell City, Ind., a small Swiss German community. Tell City is home to some familiar names to University Of Kentucky fans. One of Rupp’s Runts, Tommy Kron, was from Tell City, as is Steve Lochmueller, who later played for Joe B. Hall.

  • Passing hope... one pumpkin at a time

    Members of Living Hope Assembly of God are seeing orange.

    On Saturday afternoon, the congregation gathered and formed a receiving line, passing pumpkins down from a semi-trailer.

    “Five hundred more to go,” pastor Tunya Adams yelled.

    “How many of these did we order?” one parishioner called out.

    The pumpkin receiving line erupted in laughter.

    The church of 50 ordered and unloaded 600 pumpkins.

    Living Hope’s future building site off US 27 (beside Northside Elementary) is now a sea of pumpkins.
