  • Fillies take extra inning thriller with Dunbar

    The setting was much like a district or region game on the Hilltop at Shirley Field Thursday night. 

    Paul Laurence Dunbar brought a misleading 5-5 record in to face the 8-2 Fillies in a key contest for both teams.   

    A key contest for Harrison County because it was a good measuring stick to see where they stood in comparison to the state’s better programs, and key for Dunbar to bounce back from a disheartening defeat at the hands of the best team in Lexington, the Lafayette Lady Generals by a narrow 4-0 score.

  • Card shop prepares to close doors

    Hanging up the 60 percent sale signs wasn’t hard.

    Cleaning off shelves and staring at bare ones isn’t difficult either.

    But for Tammy Kurz, it was the road sign that got to her.

    “Putting up that road sign - that was my breaking point,” Kurz said at Touch of Charm gift shop.

    Kurz expects to shut the store doors for good by the middle of next month.

    “We’re down to the weeks,” Kurz said.

  • Horsin’ around at Southside Elementary

    Horses have taken over Southside Elementary.

    “They love to look at the horses,” second grade teacher Dava Rice said about the students that gather in the front lobby of the school.

    Two display cases showcase a long row of 18 decorated wooden horses.

    Each classroom has a decorated horse.

    There’s a University of Kentucky horse, a mirrored horse and a blue and white tiled mosaic patterned horse, among many more.

    And the horses are all for a good cause.

  • There’s no app for restoring souls

    My niece, Jennifer, has an iPhone.

    Last week, she and her husband, Marc; my sister, Peggy, and I (and Jennifer’s iPhone with all its cool applications — “apps”) went to Baja, Mexico to visit my parents who live on a beach on the Sea of Cortez.

    Want to know the name of a song on the radio? Jen’s phone has an app for that. Want to know the Spanish word for just about anything? She’s got an app for that.

  • Little League season: A time for fun at the ballpark

    Saturday marks the beginning of the 2010 Little League season in Harrison County at the River Road Park. All teams are scheduled to play and, weather permitting, will start the season off with a bang. 

    I will be watching with great interest the plight of the Auto Systems team since our oldest grandson, Hayden is playing on that team.

    The other two grandsons are in coach pitch so that too will be a regular destination.  That is unless the princess CeCe decides that we don’t need to go, but that too is another story.
