  • St. Valentine revisited

    I suspect most of you have no idea about the person and the saintly episode that is commemorated each Feb. 14 by friends, family and most importantly, lovers. In fact, there are several versions of how the most romantic Saint became a commercial success.

  • Burley Tobacco Growers Cooperative accepting 2013 scholarship applications

  • Loans for socially disadvantaged persons available

    USDA Farm Service Agency reserves funds each year to make loans to socially disadvantaged applicants to buy and operate family-size farms. A socially disadvantaged farmer is one of a group whose members have been subjected to racial, ethnic, or gender prejudice because of their identity as members of the group without regard to their individual qualities. For the purposes of this program, socially disadvantaged groups have been defined as women, Blacks or African Americans, American Indians or Alaskan Natives, Hispanics, Asians, and Native Hawaiians or other Pacific Islanders.

  • Harrison County improves to 17-11 with win at Frankfort

    Four Thorobreds scored in double figures Tuesday night as Harrison County began to right the ship with an 83-66 victory over Frankfort’s Panthers in Frankfort.  
    The Thorobreds started the game a little slow but then went on a 10-to-zero run and never surrendered the lead in the best shooting night that the Breds have had in two weeks.  
    Coach Larry Kendall started his “new’ line up and again it worked well for the Thorobreds.  

  • Lady Eagles wear down shorthanded Fillies in Taylor Mill

    The construction was only the beginning of the road blocks that the Harrison County Fillies would endure Monday night as they battled the Scott High Lady Eagles in a game pitting two 10th Region rivals.  
    The Fillies were working to continue their late-season improvement as they prepare for the opening game of the 38th District Tournament next Monday against Pendleton County.  
    The assignments facing the 16-10 Lady Eagles became tougher almost immediately as sophomore point guard Kassidy Cook went down with an apparent hamstring injury.  

  • The Wildcats will be better than 25th by year end

    This week for the first time since really early in the season, the University of Kentucky Wildcats are rated in the top 25 of college basketball.  
    In the Associated Press poll, the Wildcats are seven points ahead of Tubby Smith’s Minnesota Golden Gophers for the 25th and last spot in the poll.  
    The USA Today Coaches poll does not have the Wildcats in it but there is probably some bias among the coaches.  
    I noticed that the coaches also had Indiana second to Duke instead of first like the Associated Press did in its poll.

  • Fillies win district battle with Nicholas County, drop tough one to St. Henry

    The Harrison County Fillies continued their late-season improvement as they defeated the Nicholas County Lady Jackets Wednesday evening, 39-28, in the first game of the girl/boy doubleheader on the Hilltop.  
    On Saturday night the Lady Crusaders of St. Henry handed the Fillies a 56-51 defeat in a physical battle again in the Hilltop gym.

  • Thorobreds lose two of three, Kendall shakes up line up

    The Harrison County Thorobreds have seen their once sparkling 14-5 record crumble to a 16-11 mark losing five of their last seven games, which caused Coach Larry Kendall to change the starting line up Saturday when the Breds traveled to Martha Layne Collins High School.
    The Thorobreds started the past week with a loss at Estill County (12-14) in a performance that was less than desired to say the least.
