  • Cacti make good winter houseplants

    Have you ever heard someone say, “All cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti?”  
    Have you ever wondered what the difference is?

    The Harrison County Cross Country teams ran in the newly established Bourbon County All Comers Meet last Thursday and had a very successful outing.

  • It is always darkest before the sun comes out

    A few different topics that are rolling around in my mind.

    The home-standing freshmen Colonels took the opening kick off in the Monday battle but on the second play from scrimmage, quarterback Trevor Lucky was intercepted by Malcolm Walker of Harrison County.

    After the visitors established the 7-0 lead, the home fans had to be saying ‘here we go again.’
