  • Site of Harrison County’s Ruddle’s Fort to be part of Daniel Boone documentary

    Perhaps the most recognized military events in Harrison County history were the raids by John Hunt Morgan and his Raiders on Cynthiana during the American Civil War. However, renowned Kentucky historian Kent Masterson Brown, claims that it was another battle that has also piqued his interest.
    “I regard this as one of the most critical sites of Kentucky’s Revolutionary War experience,” Brown said of Ruddles Fort, which is on the banks of the South Fork of the Licking River near Lair, on property now owned by Dunny and B.T. Darnell.

  • New Parks and Rec taking shape

    “Our promise and goal is to build a park for our children and grandchildren to enjoy, not to pay for,” said Harrison County Judge-Executive Alex Barnett.
    Recreation has long been the backbone in many aspects of community growth.
    Due to major changes recreation is facing in the foreseeable future, perhaps a closer look is appropriate on how it all has come to this point.

  • Breds drop hard-fought sub-state match at Boone County 1-0

    The Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team made its first trip to the sub-state a memorable one by battling Boone County tooth and nail before dropping a 1-0 verdict Tuesday night in Florence.  
    Showing remarkable school spirit, two pep buses, much of the football and basketball teams and hundreds of other supporters made the trek to northern Kentucky to support the history-making team.  
    The game was scoreless for the first half though it seemed to be played for the longest time on the Harrison County end.

  • Soccer Breds win first regional title, play at Boone Co. Tuesday

    “We have peaked at the right time,” a jubilant Coach Nick Hill stated. “I could not be more proud of this group of young men.”
    This statement came on the heels of arguably two of the biggest wins ever for the Harrison County Thorobreds soccer program.  
    The first step in winning the regional title came on Thursday when the 13th-rated Bishop Brossart Mustangs came onto the Hilltop fully expecting to end the Breds’ season.  

  • Thorobreds win first game with 28-0 whitewash of Pendleton County

    The Harrison County Thorobreds won their first game of the season Friday night and by doing so qualified for the Class 4A playoffs in District 7.  
    The Thorobreds traveled north to Pendleton County Friday and ran over the Pendleton County Wildcats 28-0 in an impressive second-half performance.
    Both teams opened up slowly on offense as the Wildcats took the opening kick off and were three plays and out and the Breds returned the favor on their first possession.  

  • Hard to beat a good thriller

    Oh how I enjoy a good scary movie.
    I am not referring to the types of movies where the only basis of horror is shown by a beautiful young woman, half clothed, running from a house screaming after she finds her boyfriend dead.
    I am talking about some of the great horror and scary movies that leave you afraid to go home alone in the dark.
    For the sake of time, I would like to rank only a few of the greats that have left me afraid of being alone in the dark over my short lifetime.

  • Recreation: Do we all not benefit?

    While running the risk of repeating some of Louis Kendall’s letter to the editor of last week, I want to put my two cents worth into the recreation or lack of recreation in Harrison County.
    First, I will contend that we cannot offer too much.  
    Look at the success of the yoga and Zumba classes that are going on in different parts of town plus the number of ladies who go to Curves for exercise.  

  • Harrison County Invitational hosted at CCC

    If Coach Danny Simpson had known that several of his runners were going to fall ill last week, he wouldn’t have set such a rigorous schedule.  
    “Two meets in three days is too much, especially with sick runners,” said the coach. “This was not smart scheduling on my part.”
    The Harrison County Invitational was held at the Cynthiana Country Club on Thursday with five girls’ teams, four boys’ teams and three middle school squads participating.
