  • TIMBER!

    From the Grant County News
    A stagnant economy has slowed, even halted, development on large-scale projects across the nation, but the Ark Encounter is moving, albeit slower than anticipated.
    Work at the site has begun, but it may be hard to see from the perimeter.
    There are no giant yellow earthmovers or dump trucks at the site, but developers say that doesn’t mean there’s not work being done.

  • One month down... a lifetime to go

    So how many of us are still in tune with our New Year’s resolution?
    I was recently at the Harrison Memorial Hospital Wellness Center, which looks great after the renovation, at which time I noticed a few unfamiliar faces in the crowd.
    I’m not really for setting unreachable goals that end with me feeling worse about myself than before my life-changing journey began.

  • 38th District drawing deja vu

    The drawing for the 38th District Tournament took place Monday in the cafeteria of Harrison County High School.  
    Athletic Director Brad Allison was in charge of the proceedings which had an all too familiar theme.  
    The meeting began with Pendleton County’s Athletic Director Keith Smith proposing a plan to seed and have revenue sharing.  
    This plan was to allow Nicholas County and Robertson County to make more money on the tournament while Harrison County and Pendleton County would make significantly less.  

  • Breds are too little, too late at Estill County Tuesday night

    A lackluster beginning led to a bad ending Tuesday night as the Harrison County Thorobreds lost by a 60-57 score at Estill County.  
    The Breds lost the game despite hitting on five of eight three-point attempts in the final period when they cut the lead to one point before falling by the final three-point margin.  
    Harrison County had a final attempt with less than four seconds to play but junior Dillon Pulliam’s three-point attempt was short and time ran out on the Thorobreds.

    The Hilltop gym was a buzz last Wednesday night as a good crowd anticipated the regional rivalry being renewed between the Bishop Brossart Mustangs and the Harrison County Thorobreds.  
    The junior varsity preliminary set the stage as the Breds, after trailing for the majority of the game, came back for a 47-38 win in a tough, physical battle.  
    Junior Grant Carr led the way with 14 points as defensive pressure was the key ingredient in the come-from-behind win.
