  • Have dinner with David Sheely

    With Labor Day comes summer’s symbolic end. The nights grow longer, the temperature starts its steady decline, and the leaves begin to take on their autumn hue.  
    It was these longer nights which brought families and friends closer to the fireplace in the evenings. In the days before television, when winds blew chill and the day’s work was done, families drew close together and someone would invariably tell a story.  

  • Aeolian Hall transformed to dance studio each Saturday

    Sounds can be heard from overhead as one walks inside the doors of Rohs Opera House and the sounds are not from spirits and ghost but rather from little tiny dancers.
    Aeolian Hall is currently serving as the studio used for teaching young, middle and older girls and boys how to dance all types of genre from ballet to hip-hop.
    Dancing instructor, Ann Talbot, drives every week from her home in Campbellsville, Ky., to teach dance to several young girls enrolled in Ann’s Dance.

  • Soccer Breds drop two matches to top competition

    The Harrison County Thorobreds Soccer team continued to lose some tough matches this week as they fell to Scott County (5-1-1) by a 5-0 score and to undefeated Rowan County (5-0-2) by a 2-1 score on Tuesday. Both games were played at LeBus Field.  
    The Scott County match particularly baffled Coach Nick Hill.
    “We revert back to our modified kick ball and did not at all go by the game plan,” he lamented. “We are having communication issues where we seem to know what to do in practice, but it does not transfer over to the games.”

  • The great cover up of 2011

    In the continuing saga of my ongoing battle over household décor with my husband, this time it’s the back sliding glass door.
    But before I get to that, let me back up to say that in the first 30 or so years of our marriage my husband rarely expressed an opinion about how to decorate the house except for one hard and fast rule: I could choose any color to paint the walls as long as it was antique or Navaho white.
    Other than that I had free reign — and I love to reign.

  • Cross country season busy despite the heat

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    The Harrison County cross country teams continued to run a busy schedule even though the heat index was near cancellation levels last week.  
    Thursday found both the high school and middle school teams in Wilmore at the Asbury College/Chick fil A Meet.
    The Harrison County squads were instructed by Coach Danny Simpson to run conservatively in the heat, which resulted in not as favorable results as one may have hoped for in this meet.
