  • Nearly 370 strings of lights make up Christmas Wonderland

    By Becky Barnes, Editor

    Twinkling lights, pudgy penguins and the smiles of children reaffirm that this is Christmas.

  • Carr resigns as HCHS head football coach

    Harrison County is looking for a new football coach.  Jim Carr resigned Wednesday and told his players on Thursday.  
    Part of Jim’s reasoning was the fact that the head coach needed to be in the high school.  
    I agree, though I didn’t realize how important it was until we tried to do the job without a coach in the school.  
    I also believe that the new coach needs to have previous head coaching experience and if possible should be a graduate of HCHS.  

  • Sports beat

    Freshmen open season with loss to Mason County
    The Harrison County freshman team traveled to Maysville Wednesday for their first game of the season.  
    Absent was first-year coach Colin Duffie, who was ill, so Thorobreds head coach Larry Kendall was pressed into duty. The Harrison County team struggled for the night with shooting accuracy and turnovers as they fell to the Royals, 51-24.  
    The Harrison County boys seemed out of sync without their coach and could not get into a routine.  

  • Harrison County Cross Country holds awards ceremony

    The Harrison County High School cross country team held its awards ceremony last week. Coach Deanna Lunsford gave the awards to the following athletes:  Shane Palmer was honored with the senior award.  Palmer, Ross Smith and Abby Cooper received the Academic All State Awards.
    Awards were given to the most outstanding performer on the Fillies and Thorobreds. Cooper was first on the Fillies with Tamara Lunsford second.  The boys had a tie for first between Daniel Craig and Ross Smith with Shane Palmer finishing second.

  • There is hope for the cracked pot

    Several years ago, I owned a pot that was produced by a manufacturer that guaranteed it would never chip, break or crack.
    Well one day, as I was boiling some water on the stove, I noticed the water hitting the flame but the pot was not boiling over.

  • Breds best Indians in overtime thriller Monday

    Brock Jenkins hit a lay up with three seconds left in overtime to propel the Harrison County Thorobreds to a 74-72 win over Madison Central Monday night in Richmond.  
    Jenkins made two free throws with four seconds left in regulation. This put the game into overtime as the Breds lost a seven-point lead midway through the quarter and had to battle back.  
    Madison Central (2-2) jumped out to a 13-9 lead by the end of the first quarter as the Thorobreds shot only three of 15 from the field in the opening stanza.  

  • Breds bounce Bluejackets, lose to Pioneers Saturday

    Harrison County’s Thorobreds didn’t look too smooth winning, but win they did Friday night over Nicholas County.  
    The very physical game produced a couple of technical fouls and a lot of contact in the 71-to-54 Thorobreds’ victory.
    Trenton Thompson scored 11 of his game high 17 points in the first quarter as the Thorobreds pulled out to a 20-13 lead after the first eight minutes were played.
