  • What it means to love someone

    I’ve always said motherhood is easy when you don’t have kids.
    Likewise, it’s easy to be married when you’re not. When you’re not married and you’re only dreaming about it, you imagine the ideal. In your imagination, you and your spouse say and do all the right things, and even your arguments are sweet and making up is rosy.
    In real life, however, marriage gets thorny, and sometimes bloody.
    Mostly, it’s just regular, with a few blips and annoyances along the way.

  • Fillies win 1 of 3 as season winds down

    The Harrison County Fillies faced three very good teams over the last week losing two games at home but claiming a come-from-behind victory at East Jessamine last Saturday.
    Thursday evening the Lady Bears from Bracken County visited the Hilltop with a very experienced and veteran lineup to face the Harrison County girls.  
    Coach Patrick Kelsch started four seniors and brought three others off the bench for his 14-5 Lady Bears.  

  • Breds lose two more leads, two more games, face Estill Thursday

    The Harrison County Thorobreds faced the 15th rated Collins Titans Saturday night on the Hilltop in a game that had an all too familiar ending for the Thorobreds.  
    After compiling a 12-point halftime lead, the Thorobreds were outscored 33 to 19 in the second half to lose the Senior Night game.  
    The game started with the four seniors, Dillon Pulliam, Mason Ritchie, Landon Palmer and long-time manager Russell Crosthwaite in the line up along with junior D.J. Jenkins.

  • Harrison wrestlers finish third in region, Mattox and Lopez champs

    In what was probably the understatement of the year, Coach Luke Tucker said, “We had a pretty good day.”
    Tucker was referring to the Harrison County wrestlers’ performance at the Region 8 in Ashland.  
    The Thorobreds finished third as a team one-half point behind second place Montgomery County while Johnson Central won the meet with 238 points.  

  • Events other than basketball going on

    We talked quite a bit Saturday on the radio about baseball, softball and car racing, which brought some good natured kidding from the basketball faithful of Harrison County.  
    After all, the Cats were playing Florida and we are only one week from the district tournament so all eyes should be on the round ball action.  
    Also, the Lady Cats were playing Tennessee, as well, so what else could there be but basketball?  
    NASCAR has its biggest event this Sunday with the Daytona 500 and I bet there are some who care about that little race.
