  • Middle school football drops two at Bourbon Co. Saturday

    The first-ever Bourbon County Colonel Classic was held Saturday afternoon as the seventh and eighth grade teams of Harrison and Bourbon counties met on the gridiron.  Bourbon County came away victorious in both games winning the seventh grade game 14-8, and the eighth grade game 44-20.

    The seventh grade team, coached by Eric Reed and Randolph Thomas, played very well, according to middle school head Coach Jim Carr. 

    “The touchdown that was called back on a procedure penalty was the difference in this game,” he noted.

  • Fillies Soccer continues to face top opposition

    Harrison County’s Fillies continue to battle some of the top competition in the state as they work through the 2010 season. 

    On Sunday, the Fillies traveled to North Oldham High School to face the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers. 

    Elizabethtown, with a 3-1 record, defeated the Fillies by a 3-0 score as they scored twice in the first half on direct kicks. 

    One of these goals came as the Fillies’ defender slipped and fell allowing access to the goal.

  • Bumper crop of peppers and squash not a sure thing

    You know all the jokes about people having bumper crops of summer squash?

    Squash shows up in people’s cars or in public spaces because there is so much that the gardener can’t even give it away. Well, some years are better than others and this year, I don’t seem to have an over abundance.

    This year, the squash vine borer and blossom end rot dominate; last year it was squash bugs and mildew.

  • Crows and crow have their places but not to eat

    I really have nothing to say about the bird called a crow, but the title was so catchy I had to use it. I do have something to say about eating crow. 

    Don’t take this as a surrender or a change of heart, but I believe in giving credit where credit is due.   

    The Reds of Cincinnati have played better baseball with more success than I ever dreamed possible, especially with Dusty Baker as manager. 

  • First-half turnovers spell defeat for Thorobreds in Rec Bowl

    Nine turnovers and 15 penalties make it very hard to win. 

    It only took six seconds to get a five-yard penalty, which set the tone for the first half. 

    The Harrison County Thorobreds opened the scoring after the teams each had the ball one time without success. Eric Lewis intercepted a Matt Tuttle pass on the 10-yard line and ran it back to his own 30. 

    On the next play, back-up quarterback Tyler Martin, playing wide receiver, hit Shane Fowler on a 70-yard end-around pass play to make it 6-0 Harrison County.
