  • Thorobreds survive Camel’s seventh inning comeback

    The Thorobreds learned a hard lesson about baseball in their first-round game of the 10th Region Tournament against Campbell County Monday afternoon in Winchester.
    It’s not over until the last out has been called.
    At the top of the seventh inning, the Thorobreds may have thought they had the win all sewn up. They had a comfortable 5-1 lead and the defense locked the Camels down to only one run in the second.
    But that four-run cushion may have seemed just a little too comfortable to the ‘Breds.

  • Northside drama club going strong after four years

    A simple observation trip several years ago has turned into an annual event at Northside Elementary School.
    Kindergarten teacher Leslie Jones got the idea of a drama club after observing a play at another school.
    “I thought we could do it here,” she said. “So I volunteered with some fellow teachers to help do this.”
