  • It's never too early to start leaving a legacy

    With all of the unfortunate incidents that have taken place recently, I began to think of a very important thing just the other day.
    Legacy.
    When we are younger, which I claim to still be at only 26 years old, we never give the term “legacy” any thought for the most part.
    Why would anyone ever think how they want someone to remember them when they are still at a young age?
    Well until here recent, I was in the same boat.
    I always put off the task of starting my legacy till tomorrow.

  • Listening for the sound of pig wings

    Months ago I wrote a story for the newspaper about community leaders’ vision for the future.

  • Kendall pitches Breds to region finals with 8-1 win over Scott Eagles

    Senior Brandon Kendall went the distance Tuesday night in pitching the Harrison County Thorobreds to an 8-1 semi final victory over Scott High in the 10th Region Championships.
    Kendall worked the seven innings allowing one run on six hits; striking out seven while walking three and hitting one batter.  
    Harrison County scored in the first when, with one out, Kendall hit a ball to right field which could have been caught but was missed by right fielder Seth Robinson for a two-base error.  

  • Breds roll into region semifinals with 5-inning win over Bracken Co.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds accomplished what Coach Mac Whitaker wanted, only just a little bit too fast.  
    After the opening region game with Bracken County, Coach Whitaker commented, “Jordan (Riley, starting pitcher) had everything going except his control, but we planned to use Nathan (Fryman) anyway to get some experience for him. I wanted to let Gus (Garrison) also get some time on the mound but we won the game too fast.”
    To be sure, Whitaker was happy to advance and if it was too early, so be it.
