  • An achievement for many

    Harrison County sophomore Madison Kellione scored her 1,000th point Friday night at Bourbon County in the Fillies 49-41 loss at the hands of the Lady Colonels.  
    While I am sure that all Harrison County fans would have preferred that she met this milestone on the Hilltop, and in a victory, we have to take our achievements as they come.  
    While this is a great accomplishment for Maddie K. and I am sure it won’t be her last, it was a great night for more than just the fiery sophomore.

  • Viewpoint

    Last week I interviewed a fine gentleman, Jimmie Rose. That interview and his story appears elsewhere in this week’s paper.
    Earlier this week, an article appeared in the Lexington Herald about the exploits of the Edmondson County basketball team that won the boys state tournament in 1976 and supposedly saved the one-class Sweet Sixteen that Kentucky is so proud of.
    Those two separate events caused me to reminisce about some events in my past.
