  • Harrison County Marching Band to compete Saturday in the MSBA championships

    The Harrison County Marching Band wrapped up its season last weekend with a 13th place finish in the semifinals of the Kentucky Music Educators Association competition.
    “We are so proud of the way the kids performed today,” said band director, John Merz after Saturdays performance at Bourbon County.  “The performance today was clearly stronger than last week.”
    The HCHS band competed the week prior in the quarterfinals, also at Bourbon County.

  • Continuing from last week

    I had quite a bit of positive response from last week’s article, which tells me that some people at least agree that changing coaches is not always the answer.  
    Billy Gillispie comes to mind in place of Tubby Smith.  
    How many were anxious for Tubby to leave only to wish like heck he was still at UK just a year or less later?  
    Also to consider is the time that it takes to change a program’s direction ala Rich Brooks or Coach Stoops, who, despite their best efforts, took years for Brooks and Stoops still is in the process.

    Cross country team finishes season
    The Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds Cross Country teams traveled to Burlington Saturday to compete in the AA Regional Meet.  
    The races were held in Idlewild Park on a course that Coach Deanna Lunsford deemed to be one of the more difficult that the squad had encountered this season.  
    “The weather was very, very cold,” noted Lunsford. “The course was difficult, but with all that being said the runners did an awesome job. This was a great finish to the season.”

  • The giving spirit is a welcome part of early Christmas

    How can stores already have out Christmas decorations? Santa Claus and Rudolph? Christmas trees for heaven’s sakes!
    Yikes, let us at least get through Thanksgiving. Is this how the majority of people feel? Most likely.
    However, for some people, it’s Christmas all the time.
