  • City preps for flood

    “The water towers all full,” Todd Blanton, superintendent of Cynthiana’s water treatment plant told city commissioners Tuesday night.
    He said that if flood waters break through the berm, which is estimated to hold up to a river level of 23 feet, the water plant will shut down.
    The National Weather Service was expecting the South Fork of the Licking River to crest at 22.5 feet by 9 a.m. Wednesday.

  • Breds split pair in rain-shortened Frank Shoop Invitational

    The Harrison County Thorobreds were scheduled to host the annual Frank Shoop Invitational Thursday, Friday and Saturday, but rain washed away the Saturday portion of the tournament.  
    Harrison County would have been better off if it would have rained on Thursday as they dropped a 7-6 game to Western Hills as the Wolverines scored five unearned runs in route to the win.  
    The Thorobreds scored six times in the first inning on five hits, the big blast a three-run home run by senior Shane Fowler.

  • Fillies continue to struggle with schedule and weather

    The youthful Harrison County Fillies continued to battle as they played through a tough part of their schedule last week.  
    Coach Christine Garnett’s squad hosted the powerful Walton Verona Bearcats at Shirley Field on Wednesday.   
    The Fillies were soundly defeated by the 10-4 Walton Verona team as they outscored the home team by a 16-4 count.  The loss left the Fillies with a 2-5 record going into the Kenton County Classic on Friday.

  • Tennis squads lose at Montgomery Co., sweep Bracken

    The weather cooperated enough last week for the Harrison County tennis teams to play two matches with far different results.
     The Bracken County Polar Bears and Montgomery County Indians were the opponents for Coach Kara Mattox’s netters.
    The Polar Bears were no match for the Harrison County teams as the visiting Breds and Fillies swept to 5-0 victories.  
    The Fillies had a little more trouble than the Thorobreds as they had a couple of close matches before pulling out the wins.

  • Thorobreds win fourth in a row at Montgomery meet

    On what was probably the best weather day of the year, the Harrison County Thorobreds and Fillies performed very well in the Montgomery County Invitational Meet.  
    The meet was held on Thursday, April 7, at the Indians’ beautiful new track facility.  
    The Fillies were led by the field events and hurdles as has been the case all season.  Natasha Ingram was a double winner taking the shot put and the discus, freshman Haley Carr won the 100M hurdles and Catherine Darnell leaped 29-feet-8½ inches to win the triple jump.

  • Baseball press box, fun and professional

    I think for this week at least I will be less serious and try not to upset anyone with my column.  
    Hate mail is never any fun even if one expects to get it.   
    I will risk mentioning my high school alma mater though only because it leads into my thought for the day.  
    Last week I attended a high school baseball game in Tell City when I was traveling on business.  
    There were a couple of sharp contrasts between the game there and the games on the Hilltop, which I attend whenever I can to cover the Thorobreds.
