    A Harrison County grand jury met last week returning three indictments.

    In counts 1-4, the grand jury alleges that Taylor passed checks on Gary Adamson's Fifth-Third Bank account totaling $898.50 from Nov. 13 to Nov. 26. The grand jury also alleges that Taylor knew the checks were forged and that he was attempting to defraud or deceive someone else.

  • Fillies come up just short against Paris

    The Paris Lady Hounds (16-7) came to the Hilltop on Friday, Feb. 8, and held on to defeat the Harrison County Fillies (11-12) 35-33.

    The first half of the game was an offensive nightmare for the Fillies, who were unable to put their first points on the scoreboard until there was just 4:08 left in the second quarter.

    Fortunately for Harrison County, the Lady Hounds had problems of their own putting points on the scoreboard and the score was just 6-0 after the first quarter. In the second quarter, the Fillies were out-scored 11-9 and trailed 17-9 at the halftime break.
