  • Dig and divide iris and daylily bulbs

    Why is it that the perfect time to dig and divide your iris bed is in July at the height of the season’s heat?  
    For bearded iris, it’s because they go through a dormant period in the summer.
    This hardy perennial is a beautiful spring bloomer that is virtually immune to diseases. But to ensure health and vigor, you should divide your bearded iris every three to five years.  
    If they receive adequate sunlight (at least six hours a day), but do not bloom well, then it is definitely time to divide.

  • More than 60 will tee it up for Burley Belles Friday and Saturday

    Sixty-plus lady golfers will be on hand Friday and Saturday at the Cynthiana Country Club for the 45th annual Burley Belles Invitational Tournament.  
    The event, sponsored by the Ladies Golf Association of the Cynthiana Country Club, will have three former champions in the field including the defending champion Cynthia Powell.  

  • Youthful veterans return for Harrison County golf teams

    “Youth” and “veteran” usually do not go together, but in the case of Harrison County’s golf teams, it is a perfect description.  
    One senior, Fillies’ Morgan Nelly, stands on the roster of the Fillies and Thorobreds with only two juniors, six sophomores, three eighth graders, a seventh grader and a fifth grader making up the total of Coach Jason Crisp’s 2014 line up.  
    The Fillies’ assumed No. 1 player, the sweet-swinging sophomore Sarah Holland, stands out among the Fillies roster.  

  • Football Breds perform well in passing league games in Pendleton Co.

    Despite the weather and two inexperienced quarterbacks, the Harrison County Thorobreds did better than expected in the passing league games on Pendleton County’s field Friday night.  
    Harrison County defeated the home team and Bracken County while dropping the match with Holy Cross of Covington.
    “Our quarterbacks performed well for their first time playing the position,” noted Coach Jim Carr. “Senior Mark Taylor and sophomore Luke Slucher each threw for three or four touchdowns and freshman Ben VanHook also did well.”

  • Murray earns three medals in National Dwarf Association games

    Kentucky athlete Tim Murray can be easily considered one of the most accomplished, successful and least known athletes in Kentucky.
    Which is odd, really. He makes a remarkable first impression. And it has very little to do with that fact that he’s a bit over four feet tall.
    As an athletic trainer and physical therapy assistant at Harrison Memorial Hospital, Murray has contact with people who are often surprised by his appearance — at first.

  • Mid summer, slow time for high school sports

    The dead period for high school sports leaves a gap in activity which makes me kind of unfocused and almost disinterested in sports.  
    I would much rather go to and write about high school sports than any other with the possible exception of a baseball game in St. Louis.  
    Major League Baseball is so poorly covered by the Lexington media that it is hard to actually find out what is going on with anyone except maybe the Reds and as you probably know I am not a fan of the Red Legs.  

  • Sports beat

    Two more camps for
    Youth Football remain
    The Harrison County Youth Football held its first camp last Saturday morning and has two more before school is in full swing next fall.

    The Sox Red won six straight games in bracket play to become champions defeating the Dallas Tigers 9-4 in the final. The elder Snopek is the coach of the team and son, Christopher, plays centerfield.
