  • Census countdown begins for America’s farmers and ranchers

    America’s farmers and ranchers will soon have the opportunity to make a positive impact on their communities by taking part in the 2012 Census of Agriculture. Conducted every five years by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), the Census is a complete count of all U.S. farms, ranches and those who operate them.

  • Harrison County Farm Bureau receives award of excellence

    Recognized for the achievements of its women’s program this year, Harrison County Farm Bureau received the 2012 Gold Star Award of Excellence during Kentucky Farm Bureau’s annual meeting in Louisville. The award honors county Women’s Committees for active participation in leadership development programs, agricultural promotion, educational initiatives and numerous other aspects of support to the local Farm Bureau.

  • Live or live cut for the holidays?

    Picking out the perfect Christmas tree was something that I used to take very serious: all the cleaning and moving of furniture and packing of boxes and light-stringing and unstringing required a tree worth the effort.
    I have scaled back in recent years but still see the fun in finding a tree that fits your space and holds precious ornaments with style.
    So, which type of tree reflects your holiday?
    Do you get a fresh cut, artificial, balled and burlapped?  Or do you just go out-of-town and let someone else do the decorating?  

  • Breds rip Cougars, 84-35, Tuesday night in Covington

    The Harrison County Thorobreds improved to 4-1 on the season as they roared past a short-handed Calvary Christian Cougar squad, 84-35, in Covington Tuesday.  
    Calvary Christian was playing without two starters who were suspended for reasons not disclosed following Monday night’s first win of the season over Silver Grove.  
    The loss left the Cougars with a 1-5 record for the season.

  • Fillies drop Monday night visit to Brossart, 63-30

    The Bishop Brossart Lady Mustangs spotted the Harrison County Fillies an early 5-2 lead before scoring 17 of the next 20 points to run past the visiting Fillies, 63-30, Monday night in Alexandria.  
    Bishop Brossart (5-1) returned all starters from last year’s region team and they never let up as they ran to a 39-14 score at the half.  
    The Lady Mustangs defense pressure forced the out-manned Fillies to 18 first-half turnovers, 30 for the game, while only committing six miscues all night.  

  • Thorobreds roll past Bluejackets, 71-48

    The second half of the girl/boy doubleheader Friday night was a rough and tumble affair as it seems something about the Thorobreds makes others want to foul them.  
    The game was closer than it might have been though as the Breds for the first time this year struggled from the line making only 15 of the 35 attempts that they were awarded.  
    The pace of the game and the emotion of playing a district rival were part of the problem in the mind of Coach Larry Kendall.

  • The spirit of the season

    The Christmas Season is fast approaching and in basketball that means holiday tournaments.  
    Both the Fillies and Thorobreds are participating and, of course, they are playing at the same time in places far from each other.  
    This fact makes it very difficult to cover for both WCYN and the Cynthiana Democrat but fortunately the coaches give us a lot of help with facts and figures.  
    It is our intention to cover all sports as fairly as we can but when there is one of us it sometimes becomes a challenge.
