  • Martin perfect as Breds take 3rd in McDonald’s Classic

    Junior pitcher Jared Martin tossed the second seven-inning perfect game in school history last Thursday as Harrison County defeated Simon Kenton 2-0 in the first game of the McDonald’s Classic.

    “I was aware of the perfect game after a few innings, but didn’t really worry about it at all,” said Martin. “The first batter of the game hit the ball hard to left field, but they didn’t hit too well after that.”

  • The name ‘Veterans Park’ should be supported as Handy Farm park name

    To the editor,

    We were extremely disappointed to read about the county court’s apparent rejection of the name “Veterans Park” for the Handy Farm Park. The Harrison County Tomorrow Committee is really working hard to move our county forward.

    Mr. Copes said that the committee considered it their authority to name the park. More simply, the committee held a “name the park” contest. We wonder -- were the 1,459 people who voted from out of the county? Most certainly they represented Harrison County. So why the fuss from Mr. Copes?

  • April 28 is named ‘Equal Pay Day’ by Harrison County leaders

    To the editor:

    On March 6, 2008 the Paycheck Fairness Act was re-introduced in the 110th Congress by Senator Clinton (D-NY) and Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT). According to the latest U.S. Census Bureau data, women continue to receive unequal pay for the same work; on average women earn 81 cents for every dollar a man. It has still not been passed into law.

  • Skaters are being blamed for vandalism at park

    To the editor;

    This is in response to the April 2 front page article on vandalism at the River Road “skate park.” The reasons for removing the skate park equipment where listed as vandalism, littering, and foul language. I agree all of these things should not be happening in the park area at all.
