     The Harrison County wrestling team will open the 2017-18 season with the annual Rumble on the Hilltop this Saturday morning, beginning with weigh-ins at 9 a.m.  
    This is an individual bracketed tournament with every effort to separate returning state participants to assure top notch wrestling in the semi-finals and finals.  

  • Grace Notes

    Recently, I listened to an eight-episode podcast (like an internet radio show) called “Oh Dear God.”
    Done by two young, thirtysomething women, they both grew up in the Christian faith.
    Today they like some of Christianity, but not all of it. Same goes for their feelings about the church.
    The women met at camp -- they love church camp -- and now they’re comedians who live in Los Angeles.

    The Harrison County Fillies with three players in double figure scoring and two with double figure rebounds rolled past Tates Creek Monday night in Lexington, 65-32. 
    The Fillies jumped out to a 19-9 first quarter lead as junior Madison Kellione scored 11 of her game high 23 in the opening stanza.  Both teams showed some first game jitters with 15 turnovers in the first period with the Lady Commodores committing nine of the miscues.

    Lexington Christian Academy’s team was highly thought of going into last night’s season opener on the Hilltop against the Harrison County Thorobreds.  The Eagles of Region Eleven did nothing to change that opinion as they defeated the Breds,  71-51.
    It wasn’t easy for three quarters as the Breds overcame their rebounding deficit and height disadvantage to stay within 10 points until late in the third period.

  • Museum Musings

    * Truly, this is a season of thanks, veterans appreciation, harvest, remembrance, patriotism, heritage, gratitude - but not just for this season - but gratitude on each and every day - always a season of thanks.
    * Terri Guillemets -- “As each day comes to us refreshed and anew, so does my gratitude renew itself daily. The breaking of the sun over the horizon is my grateful heart dawning upon a blessed world.”
    * A visit to the Cynthiana-Harrison County Museum, the old Rohs Theatre building on Walnut Street, surely will enhance your gratitude.
