  • Thorobreds bowled over in Pike County Bowl

    It appeared to be a small college team playing a bowl game Friday night in Belfry in the second game of the Pike County Bowl.  
    After Pike County Central unmercifully ran up the score on helpless Phelps, 62-6, the band struck up the Belfry fight song and out came about 100 red-clad football players to ready themselves for battle.  
    This was a high school football atmosphere that stories are written about in the how to do it books.

  • Fillies shutout Lady Flyers Wednesday on the Hilltop, lose to Campbell County

    Senior Johnna Marshall and freshman Millie Wiglesworth each scored as the Harrison County Fillies defeated the Franklin County Lady Flyers at the Athletic Complex last Wednesday evening.

    The Lady Flyers and the Fillies battled to a 2-2 tie on Aug. 11 in a scrimmage at Frankfort so the improvement was obvious.

  • Ramblings on Sunday night

    I often wait until later in the week to write my column, but so much has happened I wanted to start on Sunday this week.  
    One of my favorite columns that I used to read is one by Dave Barry.  
    Barry is not in the Herald Leader they instead have champs like Mrs. Davis so I can’t read him anymore or don’t even know if he still writes.  
    One of the ways Barry used to write was to put together short thoughts about many different ideas and call them ramblings.  
    So this is a rambling edition of Mike’s Minute.

  • Harrison County Cross Country starts season off strong

    Coach Danny Simpson’s Harrison County Cross Country teams have started the season with early success as they work to compensate for the short time for preparation.  
    “We have not had enough practice,” the long-time coach noted. “But at some point and time you have to compete. We obviously need a lot of work, but I like what I see.”
    Simpson’s remarks came after two good performances, especially by the Thorobreds.  The season began on Aug. 21 with a somewhat confusing all comers meet at Woodford County.
