  • Saints beat Fillies

    After going 3-1 in Bourbon County’s Kentucky Bank Holiday Tournament to wrap-up the 2008 portion of this season’s schedule, the Harrison County Fillies have found the sledding tough through two games in 2009.

    On Monday night, Harrison County traveled to Maysville and was defeated by a very good St. Patrick squad, 59-46.

    Harrison County fell behind early and could never quite catch up with the Saints.

  • Bailout isn't the solution to automakers' financial woes

    To the editor,

    With the disgraced Detroit three automakers getting an additional $5 billion, on top of the $17.4 billion of our taxpayer dollars a few weeks ago, we should remember the last several billion dollars that we gave the industry, and the outcome of it.  In the 1990s, the Partnership for a New Generation of Vehicles worked to make 80+ miles per gallon cars and allowed for communications amongst scientists between the big three auto makers to help speed that process along.

  • Cards fly past Breds, 75-52

    The visiting Clark County Cardinals blew open a close game in the third quarter and cruised past the Harrison County Thorobreds on Tuesday night, 75-52.

    Harrison County, currently ranked seventh in the 10th Region, jumped on the region’s top-ranked team in the first three minutes of the game, but struggled to stay within striking distance for the rest of the first half.

    The Thorobreds led 9-3 in the early going, but needed a Ryan Puckett three-pointer inside the last minute of the first period to trail 15-14 at the quarter break.

  • Grand jury returns four indictments Tuesday

    Four indictments were returned by a Harrison County grand jury on Tuesday during its first session of 2009.

    Daniel Baron, 26, faces a four-count indictment for alleged events that occurred on Nov. 9, 2008.

    According to the grand jury, Baron attempted to flee from police and disregarded directions to stop. He was also accused of driving under the influence of alcohol or other substance, which created a risk of death or injury to other persons.

  • Trunk damage can girdle trees

    The farm looks like a storm hit recently but it’s really just my husband’s new deer deterrent technique. It seems to be working.

    In the past, we have forgone the Irish Spring soap, human hair and coyote urine for more reliable barriers.  Tomato cages, tobacco stakes, wire, spiral plastic trunk wrap, and, yes, an occasional arrangement of lawn chairs have created distance between rutting and browsing deer. 

  • Harrison’s first traffic death of 2009 is Tuesday

    Twenty-one-year-old Danyell Kearns is dead after an early Tuesday morning car collision on US 62 East, about 10 miles from Cynthiana.

    At approximately 8:20 a.m., Kearns was traveling west in a 1995 white Pontiac Grand Am when she struck another vehicle and traveled down an embankment.

    “It looks like she drove off the side of the road and over corrected,” said Harrison County Deputy Sheriff and Accident Reconstruction Specialist Dean Hutchison.
