    Becky Barnes,

    It’s time to start thinking about the 2017-18 school year. At least that’s what the Harrison County Board of Education had on its agenda Tuesday night.

  • Super Bowl match-up is set, I’m moving on

    Football ended Sunday night for the year, for me.  The season ends when my teams are done playing so when the Steelers lost to New England in the final game of the day on Sunday, football was over.  
    I do have a mild interest in the Atlanta Falcons because there is a former player from IU playing for them but that won’t be enough for me to watch, more than likely.  
    For one thing, the game takes entirely too long with all of the commercials, though in many years the commercials have been better than the game itself.

    After beating Robertson County on Wednesday and losing to Bracken County and Campbell County, Harrison County coach Kim Furnish knows that there is still a lot to do for her Fillies.
