  • Prepare for the move outdoors

    Our current warm, sunny weather has made everyone just delighted and the intoxication of it all may lead us to act impulsively. 

    I am as anxious as anyone to move some of my houseplants outdoors: My gardenia looks terrible in the dining room and the jasmine down stairs seems to stare into space dreaming of better days.

    They are coming, just be slow about the transition from indoors to out.

  • Flat Run Veterans Park sign was a contribution of many

    To the editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who were involved in funding and installing the sign and platforms for benches and trash cans at Flat Run Veterans Park. First, I would like to thank United Community Fund for donating $1,000 toward this endeavor. Also, thank you to the County Fiscal Court and the City Council for agreeing to pay half of the remaining balance, which was a very generous amount. Your kind attention was appreciated.

    Thanks to Steve Snapp for designing a sign that is great looking and one in which we can be proud of.

  • Tennis team takes record to 3-1 with victories on the Hilltop

    The Harrison County tennis team ran its season record to 3-1 as they romped over district rivals Pendleton County and Deming last week. 

    First-year coach Kara Mattox’s netters only lost three matches in total as they ran rough shod over their opponents. 

    Last Wednesday, facing Pendleton County, the No. 1 and 2 singles players and all of the doubles for both boys and girls, won and in most cases by large margins.  

    The Pendleton County squad won only one match in the team play and two of the exhibition matches.

  • Fillies win Bracken Co. tournament with three wins

    The Harrison County Fillies took three hard-fought victories in the Bracken County/Webber Farms Tournament in Brooksville over the weekend. 

    Walton Verona was the first opponent on Friday as they brought a 6-2 record to face the 2-1 Fillies. 

    Harrison County started the scoring in the top of the second as senior Kaitlyn Shepherd led off with a walk. Two errors and another walk later, the Fillies had a 1-0 lead with the bases loaded and no outs. 

  • Track meet big success

    The first-ever track meet at the new Harrison County Athletic Complex needed two ingredients for coaches Danny Simpson and Robert Walker to be happy. 

    First, things had to run smoothly, and second, the Breds and Fillies had to perform well and win. 

    Coach Simpson, in particular, was hoping for victories and smooth sailing to honor the past contributors to the track program.
