  • It’s a free country

    After a week off from Mike’s Minute I want to cover a couple of things in this one article.
    First, Harrison County lost one of its really good people last week when Gerald Reffett passed away at the young age of 61. I knew Gerald through his good wife Connie who played a role in the upbringing of our two daughters during their time in high school.  
    Connie was an assistant coach when Larry Allison was the Fillies’ basketball coach and both of the girls were involved either as a player (Amanda) or manager (Meghan).

  • Fillies rout Pendleton County 20-0

    Thursday in the last district game before the tournament, the Harrison County Fillies defeated the Pendleton County Lady Cats 20-0 in three innings at Shirley Field.  
    Kecia Stephens pitched the three-inning affair for Harrison County allowing only two hits, hitting one batter and striking out three.  
    The Fillies gathered 14 hits in three innings with Coach Christine Garnett resting almost every starter after the first inning.

  • Kendall named new basketball coach as Reitz retires

    After 39 years of coaching, Harrison County basketball Coach Mike Reitz has retired.  Reitz’ retirement announcement came last Wednesday and by Friday Larry Kendall was named head coach.
    Kendall has served as an assistant coach for 17 years in the Harrison County system beginning with Mike Reitz in 1995-96 until 2001-2 when brother Lee Kendall took over as head coach.  
    Lee Kendall resigned in 2006-07 and Reitz came back through the past year with Larry Kendall as assistant for each of these seasons.

  • Former Cynthiana chief to be honored in Police Memorial Ceremony on Tuesday

    It was well before my time, July 29, 1939, when Cynthiana’s police chief responded to what is today considered a “domestic” situation.
    The 25-year veteran police officer approached the property where a man was abusing a teenage girl. As he was getting out of his car, he was shot in the back by the man who was hiding in his barn.
    Chief George Dickey died of his injuries.
    He will be remembered during a police memorial service in Richmond on Tuesday, May 22.

  • Bad week, Good news

    The other day a co-worker posted on Facebook that it had been the week from hell.
    We had all felt it. It was as if a black cloud hovered over us, raining down all kinds of bad.
    We had made mistakes. Tempers flared. Fingers pointed.
    Cranky people called, which didn’t help our own crankiness.
    We scowled. We skulked. We wished we were anywhere but here.
    It was one b-a-d week.
    One of my favorite children’s books is “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” by Judith Viorst.
