  • Injury leads to 7th place for cheerleaders in state competition

    For the first time the state cheerleading competition was held at the Alltech Center at the Kentucky Horse Park.
    The Harrison County cheerleaders competed in the small division and had things pretty much lining up for them as they prepared for their turn on the mat.  
    They had a great warm up and were prepared to take advantage of the fact that most teams that had already performed had fallen, leaving the door wide open for another Harrison County win.
    Coach Jessica Reynolds was excited as she watched the performance unfold.

  • Fillies roll past Williamstown, drop first game at Dixie

    Harrison County’ Fillies took what was a 10-point halftime lead to an easy 25-point (60-35) win Wednesday night over the Williamstown Lady Demons in their only home game of the season to date.
    The Fillies rolled out to a 13-4 advantage early before Williamstown changed to a 1-2-2 zone, which caused the Harrison County girls to become tentative.  

  • Thorobreds split weekend games in Northern Kentucky

    Only a last-second shot by St. Henry’s senior guard Nick Rechtin prevented the Harrison County Thorobreds from sweeping a weekend of basketball games in northern Kentucky Saturday night.  
    The Thorobreds dropped a 62-61 verdict on Rechtin’s last-second shot on Saturday after defeating Covington Holy Cross 73-58 the night before in Covington.
    On Friday night, the Breds jumped out to an early 15-3 lead and it looked as though they would blow the Indians out of their own gym.  

  • Forgiveness sets the captive free

    “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” Colossians 3:13
    There came a time in my middle 30s when the Lord was doing a new thing in my life.  
    He pressed it upon my heart to forgive my abusive-alcoholic father for the pain and suffering he caused when I was a child growing up.  

  • Controlling pests on indoor plants

    Have you noticed a sticky substance on the floor beneath your ficus or philodendron?  Are there little scabs on the underside of the leaves of your orchid? Maybe you have noticed that your plants just look a little lack luster.  
    Well, we can blame some of the plant puniness on being a tropical houseplant indoors in Kentuckiana during the winter.
    Low levels of humidity and low levels of light trigger a response in plants that slows them down, causing them to shed foliage and leaving them in a standby phase until the environment turns more favorable.
