  • Fillies win two of three to finish 2010

    The Harrison County Fillies completed 2010 by splitting the four games they played in the Paris-Bourbon County Holiday Classic last week.  
    They opened the tournament with the game reported last week, the 60-45 loss to Ohio County. The Fillies battled the Bell County Lady Cats on Thursday morning after the Region 13 power lost a tough game to Lafayette 49-35 in a game where they could not buy a basket early.  

  • We need to go back to intramurals in the middle school

    There are many reasons that I believe we need to go back to having intramural teams in the seventh and eighth grades.  
    The first reason and probably the most important is to have more of our youth involved in an extra curricular activity.
    Young people change a great deal in the years between sixth grade and the end of high school, and the way it works right now, once the “selection” of the traveling squads is made that’s all there is for the students who are not picked.  

  • Breds’ victory chances run afoul at Bracken tourney

    After dropping a close game to Lewis County and routing Morgan County, the Harrison County Thorobreds were facing the task of playing the home team, the Polar Bears, in Wednesday’s game in the National Bank Classic.  
    The Breds were no match for center Todd Jefferson as the 6-foot-5 senior scored 30 points for the game, 18 in the first half as the Polar Bears took a 40-31 half time lead.  
    Senior guard Andrew Cummins added 20 points in the 68-63 Bracken County victory.

  • How to be God’s favorite

     When my kids were little they used to ask me, “Who do you like best?”
    There’s really no way to answer that. How can you say, “Some days you and some days your sister”?
    Or: “Neither of you when you’re fighting with each other over hair scrunchies.”
    Even the standard “I like both of you equally” doesn’t satisfy a child’s question about who’s Mom’s favorite.
