    Soccer teams travel to LCA for girl/boy doubleheader

    The 10th rated Lexington Christian girls’ soccer team got past the Harrison County Fillies Tuesday night in the opening game of the girl/boy doubleheader at Lexington Christian. 

    The Lady Eagles (12-3-1) outscored the Fillies 3-0 despite a good defensive effort by the visiting team. The Senior Night festivities had the home girls focused on the task at hand and Harrison County just could not keep them out of the goal.

  • STOCKING THE LAB

    Harrison County High School science teachers and students unloaded boxes over fall break this week.

    Lots of boxes.

    Part of a 3M Foundation grant, science classes at the high school received $20,000 of equipment.

    “We were so excited,” said HCHS chemistry teacher and science department co-chair Jessica Smith.

    Earlier this month, Smith said, the boxes of flasks, balances and other equipment were delivered to her classroom, along with a human dynamics cart, an oven for drying chemicals and an up-to-code acid cabinet... just to name a few.

  • Fillies finish home schedule with two set win over Bourbon County

    The Harrison County Fillies Volleyball team ended the regular season home schedule Tuesday night with a two set romp over neighboring Bourbon County. 

    The Fillies won 25-17 and 25-11 as they passed the ball very well during the contest. 

    “Our passing was better tonight so Allison (Cordray, the setter) could set up our hitters better,” noted Coach Bill Faulkner.  “Deidre and Madeline had some excellent slams tonight due to better sets. Overall, we reacted to the serve better.”

  • As mayor, Mattmiller will continue city’s improvements

    To the editor:

    Isn’t it nice to see the new spirit that our little town is assuming? Everything seems brighter in town these days, from cleaner streets and kept yards to continuous progress at the park. We have gained a nice new bounce in our step and it seems that we are feeling a little good about ourselves right now. And we should!

  • MOPping together

    They don’t have vacuum cleaners or dusters, brooms or Windex.

    These mothers have MOPS.

    “The main philosophy with MOPS is for no mother to be alone,” said the local MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) coordinator Cassie Moses.

    The group gathers on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month for fellowship, devotion, a speaker and usually a craft.

    “It’s a support system,” Moses said before last Thursday’s meeting at Indian Creek Christian Church.

  • Kuster will be fair, but firm as district judge, says Gann family

    To the editor:

    We are writing to endorse Judge Bill Kuster.

    We have known Bill and his family for several years now and we believe Bill is the best candidate for district judge.

  • Newberry is the right one for the district judge position

    To the editor:

    As Nov. 2, 2010 comes closer and we step up to the voting booth, what are you going to do? Vote the same name again? Or are you going to take the bull by the horns and vote for someone new, someone with a new look at our problems and do something about them?

    It’s time for the old guard to retire and give up that chair that they think has their name on it for the rest of their lives -  same old rules, same old policies, saying ‘this was how it had always been done, why change now?’ Does that sound familiar to you?

  • Tigers rip Thorobreds Saturday night, 41-9

    Homecoming 2010 was first made uncomfortable by the rain, though the community needs the rain. The Bardstown Tigers absolutely spoiled the night as they ran rough shod over the Harrison County Thorobreds dominating every facet of the game. 

    The Thorobreds, playing without their three fastest players who were out with injuries, could never catch up to the fleet footed Tigers. 

    “We were not very good,” lamented Breds’ Coach Mark Carroll. “The same issues we had last week came back tonight and hurt us again.”

  • Marching Thorobreds finish strong at Mason Classic

    The Marching Thorobreds have not competed since Sept. 18, and on Saturday, Oct. 9, they were ready to show the improvements made during those three long weeks. 

    Their efforts certainly paid off as they earned a first place finish in class 4A at the 29th annual Mason County Band Classic. 

    The color guard was also named as the top guard in class 4A, and was only a breath behind Lloyd Memorial for taking the overall color guard trophy.
