  • Let’s have a Happy New Year and a home court advantage

    When the Fillies traveled to Williamstown last Wednesday and won their first game of the year, I was reminded of what a good home court advantage can do for a high school team.  
    While it is true that the Lady Demons lost this home game, what little crowd that was in attendance supporting them made its presence known.
    When the Fillies went to the locker room for final instructions before the game, the Williamstown band practiced a 30-second song and a one minute ditty while the teams were in the locker room.  

  • Score 'N' More
  • Fillies drop three more at Pendleton, change line up

    The effort that the Harrison County Fillies put forth in Friday’s 56-52 loss to Covington Latin was all Coach Kim Furnish could stand.  
    “We came home and practiced for two hours and I found some girls who wanted to compete for us,” she noted. “I had to make some changes after Friday night’s effort.”  
    The Fillies started from the gate slowly in the 5 p.m. start in the first game of the Edwardo’s Classic at Pendleton County High School.

  • Follow your instinct. . .

    If there was anything that I came to understand more profoundly this year it would have to be the power of instinct: mine, our animals and the forces of ideologies of which I agree and disagree.
    I reread my year end column from 2011, which reminded me of where I was 12 months ago; it helps me better appreciate where I am today.
    It seems we didn’t do too badly, after all, and it’s all because both Andy and I recognize the power of instinct.

  • PSC selects overlay for new area code in Western Kentucky, decision means 10-digit dialing for local calls beginning in 2014

    A new area code 364 in western Kentucky will occupy the same geographic area as the current area code 270, the Kentucky Public Service Commission (PSC) announced today.
    The overlay option is the least disruptive for all customers and imposes the smallest cost on businesses in the area, the PSC said in its order. This is the first area code in Kentucky created by an overlay. Area code 270 was created in 1999 by splitting area code 502.
