    To the editor:

    We are nearing the time where many young people will celebrate a lifetime of accomplishments as they graduate from high school and move toward their life goals. Family and friends will gather together for a festive occasion to commemorate this awesome milestone.

    Traditionally, this is also a time when alcohol enters into the mix and brings tragic results for all involved. Alcohol is the most commonly used drug among American youth and it kills 5,000 teens every year.

  • CONTINUED UPDATE: Search called off at Richland Creek

    The search for a possible person in Richland Creek has been called off.

    According to Emergency Management Director Mike Palmer, an eye witness came forward Thursday afternoon, claiming she had seen a dead calf floating down the creek Wednesday around noon.

    Palmer said that was the same time dispatch received a call reporting a possible person in the creek.

    “There was no missing persons reported last night,” Palmer said.

    Palmer said emergency crews believe the object the caller saw and reported is the same calf the eye witness also saw.

  • Thorobreds race past Mustangs for Whitaker’s 900th win

    It was like the Kentucky Derby of baseball as the Harrison County Thorobreds and the Bishop Brossart Mustangs met in Alexandria Monday night. 

    One of the horses is still in the starting gate though as the Thorobreds smashed the Mustangs 19-2 in an abbreviated game. 

    Jared Martin pitched the five innings for Harrison County, allowing the two earned runs in the fourth on Bezold’s two run homer, striking out two, walking none and giving up six hits.

  • Fillies finish second in Woodford Tournament, lose Hatfield to injury

    The Harrison County Fillies saw their 13-game winning streak come to an end Friday night as they fell to the Conner Cougars (15-6) 3-1 in the opening game of the Woodford County Tournament. 

    But the loss may not be the worst thing that happened in this game. Senior shortstop and team leader Rachel Hatfield was carted from the field and taken by ambulance to the hospital with an injured ankle in the third inning with the Fillies trailing 1-0. 

    The complete nature of the injury is not known at this writing, but Hatfield missed the remainder of the tournament.

  • Handwritten letters

    I have a small box in my room that is filled with cards.

    I save every note and letter I receive - those wishing me ‘Happy Birthday,’ those thanking me for something, those just saying ‘hey’ and those that say more than we’re ever capable of saying face-to-face.

    And I treasure them all, especially those that showcase my niece’s newly developed cursive writing, or my grandmother’s distinct print or my mother’s even and predictable letters.
