  • 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.
