    It’s a local trend that has officials concerned.

    Since the beginning of 2014,  law enforcement has seen a climb in drug overdoses and suspect that many of those can be attributed to heroin.

    Incidences of apparent heroin abuse and treatments for overdoses in Harrison County are “at levels that I have never seen before,” commented Christina Buckler, RN, Emergency Department manager for Harrison Memorial Hospital (HMH).

  • Fillies spank Lady Indians, 4-1

    The Harrison County Fillies soccer team controlled the match from start to finish Wednesday night in the Athletic Complex taking a 4-1 win over Montgomery County.  
    “We have been encouraging the girls to look over the past several matches and not fall behind early in matches,” said Coach Kevin Gaunce. “They responded by playing the most complete game of the season beginning and ending the match focused on the job at hand.”

  • Fillies golfers defeat Bourbon County, teams play in Grant tournament

    On Wednesday, Sept. 17, the Fillies golfers traveled to Paris and took on the Bourbon County Lady Colonels on the Houston Oaks Golf Course.  
    Harrison County won the match by a narrow six-stroke margin thanks largely to medalist Sarah Holland who fired a 46 in the nine-hole event.  
    Seventh grader Anna Midden was next for the Fillies as she shot a 56, followed by Sarah Durbin (58) and Christina Wilson (60).  Morgan Nelly, Kenzie Jones and Tori Aubrey also played for the Fillies.

  • Who or what is the moral compass of sports

    I am having so much fun as of late I hate to write a serious article, but this has been weighing on my mind and I feel the need to share.
    When I was a youngster back in the Middle Ages I never once thought of a sports person as a hero or someone that was going to show me right from wrong.  
    Don’t get me wrong, I admired athletes for their ability in their chosen fields and wanted to play like them but that was it.  
    They were playing a game and not being a role model for me.  

  • Central Shaolin Martial Arts Test
  • GRAND CHAMPIONS

    By Becky Barnes, Editor

    For the first time in several years, the Harrison County Marching Thorobred Band brought home a coveted Grand Champion trophy.

  • Cross Country teams do well in Bourbon County Meet

    Last Tuesday’s Bourbon County All-Comer’s Meet saw Thorobreds runner Ross Smith lead the pack as he won the 26-competitor run in 18:30 for the 5,000M.  
    The Thorobreds did not have enough runners to compete for the team championship, which was unfortunate since Daniel Craig was 10th and Shane Palmer 15th, which would have been a good score.  
    The Fillies were also short some runners for the girls’ 5,000M run.  
    Abby Cooper led the Fillies with a 12th place finish followed by Tamara Lunsford and Chelsea Bowman.
