  • Breds even record with 73-33 romp over Deming Tuesday

    In a game that saw them take a 19-1 first-quarter lead, the Harrison County Thorobreds evened their season record at 3-3 with a 73-33 win over Mt. Olivet Deming Tuesday night.  
    It was a student “Black Out” on the Hilltop with a great crowd for a week night ball game and the Breds rewarded their following with a good overall team effort.
    The Thorobreds began the game with full and half court presses causing Deming turnovers and easy Harrison County baskets.  
    Senior forward Caleb Ford had 18 first-half points to lead the Breds.

  • Homecoming a sweep for Fillies, Breds over Nicholas County

    Lauren Jackson and Chris Muntz reign as Harrison County Homecoming Queen and King and they witnessed victories by both the Fillies and Breds over Nicholas County neighbors.
    The Fillies won by a 50-37 margin for their first victory of the season.  
    The Lady Jackets were playing without two starters, juniors Shannon Bretz and Reesa Martin, and the Fillies took advantage of some inexperienced players to jump out to an 11-4 first quarter advantage.  

  • Victims’ mother let down by trial delay

    Dora Clair has repeatedly said all she wants for Christmas is a conviction in the murder of her daughter, Bryia Runiewicz.
    However, the murder trial for the man accused in Bryia’s death is now on hold.
    After seven days of closed-session jury selection, the Bass Webb murder trial has been cancelled in Harrison County.
    On Monday morning, Harrison County Circuit Judge Jay Delaney entered an order stating that the trial will be continued in a different location due to extensive pre-trial publicity.

    By Becky Barnes, Editor
    It was two years in the making and now local author Debbie Cooper has released her first book.
    “I’ve written my whole life, but never really worked on getting anything published,” Cooper said from her Cynthiana home Tuesday morning.
    While “Images of America: Letcher County” is a pictorial history of her hometown in eastern Kentucky, Cooper took full advantage of the publishing company’s maximum limits on text.

  • $800-plus gold coin left in bell ringer’s kettle

    By Becky Barnes, Editor
    It’s usually worthless nuts and bolts that make the hard jangle in the bottom of the bell ringers’ kettle, unless, of course, it’s cushioned by someone’s unwanted pocket fuzz.
    However, the clang from a heavy coin went unnoticed last weekend. It not only passed the ringers’ notice, but it also went undetected by the Salvation Army’s local treasurer when she prepared the deposit ticket for the bank.
    Kim Brooks took the weekend’s gifts to Kentucky Bank with what she suspected was a $1 gold coin.

  • Slow start dooms Fillies at Dixie Saturday night, 50-44

    “The players just have to realize that we have to start with a sense of urgency,” remarked Coach Kim Furnish after Saturday night’s defeat at the hands of Dixie Heights.  “We cannot come out and think we can play whenever we get ready.”  
    This certainly was the issue in the game Saturday at the school off Dixie Highway. The Fillies fell behind 16-5 after the first quarter and though they gained ground throughout the rest of the game, they never got closer than six points.
