  • Track team again competes in indoor meet at Mason Co.

    On Saturday, the Harrison County track squad traveled back to Maysville for the final regular season indoor track meet.  
    The field was large due to teams wanting to prepare for the indoor state meet which will also be held at Mason County. This meet will be on Saturday, March 14.  
    “It was important to have this meet today,” said Coach Danny Simpson. “It sharpens our veterans and gives invaluable experience to our freshmen. We didn’t have our best performances but we did pretty well.”

  • School spirit, some show it, some don’t

    The just-completed 38th District Tournament put on display the polar opposites of school spirit.  
    On one end of the pole is Pendleton County and on the other end Harrison County.
    People display their emotions in very different ways and everyone is not the person who takes the school banner and runs from one end of the floor to the other or gets emotional when his/her team makes a great play.  
    I have never been one to yell much during a game or show great emotion for a play as I usually clap and that is about it.

  • Planning ahead, order seed

    Like many gardeners this time of the year I, too, have been spending cold winter evenings by the fire with a good catalog.  
    The seed catalogues fill the mailbox and I barely make it up the driveway without taking a peak at what’s offered for 2015.
    Two years ago, I made a procrastinating mistake and waited too long to place my onion and potato order. By the time I got around to it, all of my selections were sold out for the season.
