    Former Harrison County Softball
    Fillies playing major roles in college
    The Harrison County Fillies softball team of 2011 had several promising athletes who were thought to be college “material” when they finished as regional runners up for the season. Two of the young ladies are still playing for their respective colleges and making an impact for the teams.
    Juniors Michelle Carson and Kaitlyn Shepherd each have started every game for Northern Kentucky University (Carson) and The University of the Cumberlands (Shepherd).

  • I hope Recreation change not made in haste

    I read in the Democrat last week the names of the new staff hired by the new board to run the Cynthiana/Harrison County Recreation Department.  
    You know me, I would never want to become political nor jump to a conclusion so I will wait and see how it goes and I wish the new people the best success because if they are successful the better for the citizens young and old.  
    But let me say a couple of things about recreation and how we have progressed to this point.  

  • Assistant superintendent retiring April 30

     

    April  30 will be a bittersweet day for Assistant Superintendent Dee Gee Fischer.

  • SEARCH CONTINUES FOR COUNTERFEITERS

     

    Cynthiana Police are asking for help identifying suspects believed to be involved with a major counterfeiting operation in Harrison County.

  • Doram selected to the All 10th Region first team, Stephens to Hall of Fame

    Harrison County junior center Jordan Doram has been named to the first team All 10th Region squad as voted on by the 10th Region’s basketball coaches.  
    The 6-foot junior, who averaged a double double in scoring and rebounding for the season, joins Macie Spence and Erica Rogers of 40th District Champion Montgomery County, Sandra Skinner of 40th District runner up George Rogers Clark and Sarah Futscher of 37th District runner up Bishop Brossart.  

  • Fillies youthful but potent as season begins in 3 weeks

    The Harrison County Fillies enter the 2013 softball season with some key holes to fill from graduation of their pitcher, first baseman and center fielder from last year’s 38th District Champion.  
    Tracey Hicks, who pitched since she was an eighth grader, Lucinda Boyers the first sacker and Emalee Little, the center fielder, have all graduated and must be replaced for this season.
    Coach Christine Garnett and her staff have a young yet experienced group who they hope and believe will be able to fill the void.  

  • Breds rout Bluejackets for 38th District title

    “We played hard, scrapped and got the loose balls,” beamed Coach Larry Kendall. “Our defense was the key to the game and we held them to 42 points.”  
    This was the first-year coach’s assessment of his Harrison County Thorobreds’ 72-42 district championship game defeat of the Nicholas County Bluejackets Friday night.  
    Both teams advance to the 10th Region Tournament, which opened Monday night in Maysville.  

  • Cool season weeds waiting in the wings

    If you are one of those who complains about weeds like it’s the end of the world then take note: The most common, cool-season annual and perennial weeds will be germinating any day now.  
    The obvious: They are easy to control if you just bend over and pull them up; or walk around the garden with a cultivator in hand, scratching up a patch here and there; or spot treat them with boiling water, in order to scald the foliage and roots; or use a conventional herbicide to easily knock them out while they are still young and tender.
