  • Soccer girls return strong core, hope for a better season

    When you lose to graduation an all state player and three other major contributors to the team it is hard to think that you will be successful the next year. 

    But optimistic would be a good term for Harrison County Fillies’ Soccer Coach Kim Jenkins. Despite the loss of the four players, Shelby Clifford, Lorraine Dennie, Ashley Lyons and first-team all-state Courtney Grannis, Jenkins has high hopes for 2010.

  • Thanks to all who supported Longest Day of Play activities

    To the editor,

     My son, Ian Boland, 7, and myself, would like to thank the Community Health Partnership Wellness Subcommittee for hosting the Longest Day of Play at FRVP on June 21. Our community was one of several in all of Kentucky that marked the summer solstice with a new perspective of fun outdoor games that encourage children to get active. There were 20 booths that were managed by various community organizations, and as always, our community comes together for a good cause.

  • Sports getting back to sanity

    The World Cup is finally over and I don’t know who won. I know who lost or at least some who lost. 

    The guy formally known as the savior of Cleveland finally decided who was going to have the chance to pay him obscene and ridiculous amounts of money to wear short pants, so that charade is over. 

    Now we can get on to what is important, baseball and the upcoming football season.  Before we do though, I want to comment on some of the happenings in the last few weeks in sports.

    First, the World Cup.
