  • Shut my mouth - please

    If I were God, I would’ve made people with delay devices on their mouths or a filter of some kind.
    For example, when your brain wants to say, “Poodles aren’t real dogs,” before it comes out of your mouth the delay device would kick in and send you a message: “Really? Is that really what you want to say in front of this group of people who may or may not include poodle owners?”

  • Students unhurt in Tuesday afternoon wreck involving school bus

  • Supreme Court upholds redistricting order

    On Friday afternoon, the Kentucky Supreme Court affirmed the Franklin Circuit Court’s order that state legislative races for the 2012 election cycle shall be conducted pursuant to the boundaries that were in effect immediately prior to the enactment of House Bill 1. The Court reiterated that the filing deadline for candidates for state Senator and state Representative was Feb. 10, 2012.

  • Escaped prisoner picked up Wednesday

    A Harrison County woman was caught following her escape from Harrison County Circuit Court Tuesday after being sentenced to five years in jail.
    Tara Fryman, 29, was taken into custody Wednesday and served a second degree escape charge for running from police after being sentenced.
    According to Det. Paul Olin, once Fryman was in custody she ran from officials a second time by “slipping her cuffs,” while being processed at the sheriff’s department and ran toward the Justice Center.

  • Little did they know

    The headline should have said “Did they know Little?” referring to Harrison County senior Emalee Little. The 5-foot-4-inch small forward hit five three pointers en route to a game and career high 21 points in the Fillies 56-49 win.  
    The win avenged a regular season loss to the Lady Cats in which neither Little nor sophomore center Jordan Doram played.  

  • Cold shooting leads to the end of Thorobreds’ season

    “We played good enough defensively to win,” commented Coach Mike Reitz following the 36-33 loss to Pendleton County Monday night. “The shots just would not fall.”  
    Harrison County made only 27 percent from the field Monday in the opening round of the 38th District Tournament, which was made worse by the fact that they were one for 17 for six percent from the three-point line.  
    A few of the shots were forced, but the vast majority were attempts that, on most other occasions, went into the basket.
    Not on this night.  

  • Harrison County wrestlers unable to score at state meet

    Seniors Anthony Shirley and Shawn Tobin were close but neither made it to the podium and the Harrison County wrestlers went scoreless in the state meet last weekend at the Kentucky Horse Park.  

  • College referee’s don’t get paid enough

    Before I go into my main topic of the week, I want to mention an award that my brother John received last Friday.  
    Only John’s wife and daughters were aware of his being named to the North Hardin Basketball Hall of Fame last Friday for his contributions over several years to the program.
