  • New state senator reviews the 2015 legislative session

    By Sen. Steve West
    I would like to thank the people of the 27th District for electing me to serve as your state senator. Although I only served in the Senate for the final two days of session, I was able to cast important votes for our district. Below is a list of the key pieces of legislation that came through the General Assembly in this short session:

  • Turnberg versus the Swarm, or, Uncommon events of a Friday afternoon

    At first glance, the bee swarm that had taken temporary residence on the roof adjacent to the Rohs Opera House didn’t appear to be all that large. But, of course, size is all a matter of perspective and mine was from a distance of about 10 feet inside the top floor of the local theater and movie house.
    It was Angel Turnberg who had the up close and personal point of view of the swarm.

  • Reaching the big 4-0

    Forty years ago, a very young man I barely knew got into his 1973 white and orange Ford Comet and said he was going to the store to buy film for his camera.
    I said to this very young man I barely knew, “You’re coming back, aren’t you?”
    Later that morning, this very young man I barely knew and I, also very young, had plans to get married.
    We were both stationed at Loring Air Force Base in Limestone, Maine, two miles from the Canadian border, and there were patches of snow on the ground.
    It was May 3, 1975.

  • Breds 17-6 heading into last two weeks of season

    Harrison County’s baseball Thorobreds split four games in the past six days. After Monday night’s Senior Night win over Mason County, they stand at 17-6 with 10 days left in the regular season.
    Last Wednesday the Breds traveled to Scott County where they got two hits and made five errors.  
    Three Harrison County hurlers combined to give up eight hits, walk eight and hit three batters.  
    Scott County left 13 runners stranded or the score could have been worse than the 10-0 five-inning defeat.

  • Fillies win three district games, lose in extra innings at Bryan Station

    Last Wednesday the Harrison County Fillies traveled to Carlisle to take on district rival Nicholas County.  Coach Christine Garnett’s charges rallied in the fifth inning to put a close game out of reach by scoring six runs in the inning.  
    Before the fifth, the two teams battled evenly with the Fillies holding a 3-2 advantage.  
    Jami Davis scattered six hits while striking out nine in a very good performance for the Fillies.  

  • Fillies, Breds do well at Scott and Montgomery meets

    “We are a better team than we were two weeks ago,” said Coach Danny Simpson. “But we still have a long way to go.  I am proud of how hard the team is working.”  
    These words came after Friday’s meet at Montgomery County and Tuesday’s meet in Scott County where the Fillies and Breds had very good showings.  
    On Tuesday, the Fillies and Breds faced a strong field of 10 teams in the Scott County All Comers.
