  • Covering the FACTS

    When I think about gossip, I think about high school.

    It was always amazing to me how you could say something in the parking lot of HCHS, and whatever you said could somehow beat you into the school.

    Words travel faster than humans.

    But gossip isn’t only found in high school hallways, bathrooms, cafeterias and classrooms.

    People often ask me how I come to know about the stories I write.

    “Somebody tells me,” I always reply back.

  • Breds take Soccer Senior Night over Frankfort 6-0

    Senior Johnson Garrison scored the first two goals of the game, the first with only nine minutes gone and the second three minutes later, to lead the Harrison County Soccer Thorobreds to a 6-0 Senior Night thumping of the Frankfort Panthers.

    Coach Nick Hill substituted liberally as the Panthers were not in the same caliber as the Thorobreds on this Thursday night. 

    After Garrison’s goals, it took the Breds nine more minutes to score when freshman Grant Carr took an assist from senior D.A. Wiglesworth and drove the ball into the net for a 3-0 lead.
