  • Seven Breds advance to state, competition begins today

    The 2009 State High School Wrestling Championships open today in Frankfort and seven Harrison County Thorobreds will be competing.

    Sophomore Brandon Barnett leads those grapplers as the only Thorobred to come away from last weekend’s Region 7 Tournament as a weight class champion.

  • "We all is homeless - just workin our way toward home"

    I promised Gator that I would write about him.

    His real name is Mike, and he lives in the woods in a camp with some other people.

    I only met him briefly, which is par for the course for reporters. We get to know people long enough to get what we need for a story, but often not long enough to care.

    I’m talking about myself here, and the truth is I’m not proud of it. But I’m telling you this because God’s been chipping away at my uncaring, although he’s got a long way to go.

  • Breds romp past Frankfort in Homecoming tilt

    The Harrison County Thorobreds played strong defensively and pulled away in the fourth quarter to make for a happy Homecoming night on Tuesday, defeating the visiting Frankfort Panthers, 61-42.

    Harrison County took the lead early and led by as many as 14 points in the first half, but could never quite put the Panthers away. In the second half, Harrison County expanded its lead to 18 points in the third quarter, but allowed the Panthers to pull to within nine.

    Harrison County put the clamps on Frankfort in the fourth quarter, holding them to just eight points.

  • Commission targets abandoned buildings for city action

    Code enforcement was the topic of conversation again for city commissioners at Tuesday afternoon’s special commission meeting.

    “We need to deal with the buildings that are abandoned, eye sores and health hazards,” said Commissioner Mark Mattmiller.

  • Bailouts for states will only create more problems

    While other big-spending state politicians went to Washington seeking a handout, South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford went to “beg” (his word, not mine) federal politicians not to bail out states.

    Sanford understands something most economically illiterate politicians - a majority of Kentucky lawmakers - do not: Bailouts do not fix fiscal problems. Bailouts make them worse.
