    In just 20 months, 600,000 visitors from 60 countries will be flocking to the  Bluegrass for the 2010 World Equestrian Games.

    How will Harrison County participate?

    That’s a multi-faceted question that a contingent of citizens are beginning to answer.

    Dr. Lori Garkovich of the University of Kentucky told about 30 people Monday that the group needs to concentrate on four questions:

    •What can Harrison County offer in the way of a WOW experience?

  • Fillies defeat district rival Lady Black Devils

    The Harrison County Fillies earned a much-needed win on Tuesday night at home as they defeated district rival Deming, 47-36.

    Harrison County led 14-12 after the first quarter, but went on a 11-3 run in the second period to take a 25-15 halftime lead.

    In the second half, Harrison County was never headed, though the visitors from Mt. Olivet did pull to within six points midway through the fourth quarter. From that point forward, however, Harrison County distanced itself from the Lady Black Devils.
