  • Azaleas in the sun

    Did you know that azaleas and rhododendrons are essentially the same thing? They are both members of the rhododendron genus; they have similar blooms and similar cultural requirements.  
    Some say the primary difference between the two is the number of pollen-bearing stamens:  rhods have 10 or more per flower and azaleas have only five.  
    The rhododendron genus is divided into five main groups:  Large-leaf rhods; small-leaf rhods; Vireya rhods; deciduous azaleas; and evergreen azaleas. The latter two are our primary concern here.

  • Breds end streak, rout St. Henry 11-1 in five innings

    A two-game losing streak isn’t much for many teams, but it seems much longer to the Harrison County High School baseball program.  
    Add to the scenario that the steak came after six straight wins on the road and it is even more unlikely.
    That is all in the past now as the Thorobreds got back on track Tuesday night beating St. Henry’s Crusaders 11-1 in five innings.
    The game started poorly for the Breds as starting pitcher Justin Nutter was wild in the beginning walking the first two batters and throwing a wild pitch.  

  • Breds edge Scott High in eight innings, drop two at home

    After playing solid defensively for six straight victories, the Harrison County Thorobreds gave up 10 unearned runs in two games losing two straight at home after defeating Scott High on Thursday night, 3-1, in eight innings.  
    The Breds dropped a 12-9 decision to Covington Holy Cross on Friday and then returned to the diamond Saturday to lose to Grant County, 7-4.

  • Fillies ice the Lady Bears in six Tuesday

    It was an 11-1 night on the Hilltop as the Harrison County Fillies joined the Breds in defeating their opponent 11-1 in varsity action.  
    The Fillies defeated Bracken County at Shirley Field in a game that was very similar to the action taking place on the adjacent baseball diamond.
    Bracken County scored in the top of the first off starter Tracey Hicks to take an early 1-0 lead. Hicks and Jami Davis combined for the next five innings to shut the Lady Bears offense down.  

  • Mike’s Minute

    Congratulations to the Kentucky Wildcats on the eighth national championship.  
    The young men spent their year in Lexington wisely, working hard and blending with a couple of more veteran players to make a really good team.   
    They deserve the accolades that are coming their way and will for the most part reap huge rewards when they go on to the next step in their professional career.
    How about the National Anthem before the championship game? I don’t think it was the worst rendition I have ever heard, but it is in the top three.
