  • Bowling teams finish second in Erlanger tournament Saturday

    Saturday, Jan, 4, was an exciting bowling day for both the Harrison County Fillies bowlers and the Thorobreds bowling team.  
    They traveled to Erlanger to compete in a 15-team tournament with some of the top teams in northern Kentucky as well as local teams.
    Both the Fillies and the Breds qualified in second place with the Fillies missing first by one pin.  
    The Breds missed first place by only 25 pins so both teams were close to the top as the competition began for the tournament championship.  

  • Wrestlers take four of five at Simon Kenton Duals

    The Harrison County Thorobreds wrestling team showed great improvement Saturday as they participated in the Simon Kenton Duals.  
    This always-tough meet saw the Breds take matches from Anderson County, Badin, Ohio, Male and Central of Louisville while losing to Top 10 team Henry Clay.  
    The Blue Devils feature eight seniors of the 14 wrestlers giving them quite an advantage over most competitors.  

  • My life according to Facebook

    I’m not big on reflecting upon my life, past, present or future, and now thanks to Facebook I don’t have to — Facebook has done it for me.
    Today I logged onto my page and it said to click here to see my “20 biggest moments” of 2013, culled from my status updates throughout the year. (I’m curious to know how they choose which ones are “big moments.” Where mine are concerned, I’m guessing it may be my use of exclamation points.)

  • A perfect situation (in my mind)

    I am writing this on my 65th birthday so keep in mind that when one gets older he could forget things, add to things and outright dream them up.  
    If you are one of the elderly, you may or may not recognize these problems but you might ask some who are around you.  Patti’s birthday is tomorrow but she is not even close to my age as she was a child bride.
    The perfect situation that I would like to address is the lack of intramural basketball played in the Harrison County Middle School.  

  • Breds lose overtime battle with Henderson

    The Republic Bank Classic did not do much for Harrison County’s won-loss record as the Thorobreds lost three of the four games they played in the event.  
    However, the Breds learned a lot about who they are and how far they can go as the Harrison County boys played almost well enough to win all four games.  
    They opened with the five-point loss to the host and eventual winner Lexington Catholic before defeating nine-game winner Clinton County.

  • Welcome to the New Year

    I am hesitant to talk about my personal goals for 2014 largely because I know my parents read this column. They have a a really irritating habit of holding me accountable to my goals.
    As the year goes on and my resolutions recede — as they ought — into the softer and more manageable world of complacency, my mother will call me on Saturday morning with the inevitable questions:
    How’s that weight loss thing going, huh?
    You doing that longer writing project you said you wanted to pursue?
