Today's News

  • What should go unreported

    There are hundreds if not thousands of plays made in sports in any given week and it is up to the media (the national media for the most part) to report what they feel news worthy.  

    I say the national media because local media whether it is sports or news have a specific focus in reporting.

    There are lots of examples of good things to report that do not get reported nationally and also many not-so-good things that are written about until one wants to scream ‘enough already.’

    The Harrison County Thorobreds fumbled the ball five times Friday at North Laurel and lost two of them on the way to a disappointing 24-19 loss to the South Laurel Cardinals (1-1).  

    In a game played in very warm conditions, the ball was slick for both sides as the Cardinals fumbled four times but recovered each of those.  

  • Shorthanded, banged up soccer Breds lose two matches

    For the Harrison County soccer Breds it isn’t a matter of what team they are playing as much as what players will be healthy and remain healthy enough to play the match.  

    Last Tuesday at Rowan County, the Thorobreds were a couple of players short to start the game but still they played well.

    The Harrison County Fillies improved to 2-1-1 Monday as they defeated Montgomery County 4-3 on the Hilltop.  

    Last Wednesday they traveled to Lawrenceburg and battled the tough Anderson County Bearcats to a 2-2 tie.  

    The Anderson County match was a tale of halves that were very similar not only in scoring but in effort as well.

  • Asters, the perfect fall perennial

    If you plan accordingly you can have more than mums blooming in your fall garden.  There are a considerable number of other “late-bloomers” to choose from for the perennial garden. 

    Coreopsis, salvia, dahlias and helianthus continue to bloom well into fall just as the caryopteris, Japanese anemone, sedum, ageratum, golden rod and sweet autumn clematis start to show their color.  

    Couple all these perennials with asters and your garden will keep you entertained through October.
