  • Five inning game dispatches Polar Bears 20-6 Tuesday night

    Freshman Jordan Martin started his first varsity game this year on Tuesday and got plenty of support from his teammates to support his solid effort. The young hurler faced the minimum number of batters in his three innings pitched, striking out five and walking no one. Meanwhile, the Thorobred offense was smashing out 15 hits and scoring 20 runs to give him all of the support one could hope for in a baseball game. 

    Josh Moss led Harrison County in hits with three in three at bats while both Shane Fowler and Jared Martin smashed home runs.

  • Burning helps restore prairie grass, gardens

    Back in 2007 we installed a five acre tall grass prairie with assistance from the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Habitat Improvement Program. Each year they assist a number of landowners in various ways that improve habitat, prevent erosion and protect waterways. Basically, you do the work but they supply you with the materials needed to get the job done.

  • Welcome to the forgiveness feast

    One of my favorite jokes goes like this:

    A woman whose husband just left her for another woman walks the beach and finds a bottle in the sand. After pulling out the cork, a genie appears and grants her three wishes, with one stipulation: Whatever she wishes for her husband receives double.

    She wishes for a million dollars and — poof! — she gets it, and her husband gets two million. Next, she wishes for a diamond necklace. Poof! One is at her feet and two end up on the neck of her husband’s new girlfriend.
