  • What’s your question about nursing homes?

    By Sherry Culp, executive director, Nursing Home Ombudsman Agency
    of the Bluegrass
    Question:  I’ve always been an independent person, but as I get older I need more and more help.  I feel like I’m going to need a nursing home soon.  I don’t want people telling me what to do all of the time.  Are there nursing homes that take care of people, but let you live your own life?

  • Breds defeat Wildcats in opening round

    Harrison County’s Soccer Breds are advancing in the regional tournament after Monday’s defeat of the Pendleton County Wildcats,  2-1, in the opening round.
    “The game was very physical and played with a lot of emotion by both teams,” said Coach Nick Hill. “It was a hard-fought battle with a lot of ups and downs for both teams.”
    About 15 minutes into the game, Harrison County scored its first goal when Kyle Foster crossed a ball into the box and Jordan Gasser got just enough foot on it, to redirect the ball into the side net.

  • Another loss plagues Breds’ 2011 season

    By Ray Sparks, Sports guest writer
    After three road games and a “bye” week sandwiched in between, the Harrison County Football Thorobreds were anxious to return to familiar surroundings on the Hilltop.
