    The General Assembly returned to the Capitol early last week to kick off the 2010 regular session, with a top priority of putting together what promises to be a tough two-year budget.

    The day after the session began, Governor Steve Beshear came before the legislature to offer the annual “State of the Commonwealth” speech, and he took the opportunity not only to note the challenges we face but some of the successes we have had as well.

  • Camels send Breds to third straight loss

    Malcolm Thomas’ running lay up with 1.8 seconds left fell off the rim and the Harrison County Thorobreds went down to defeat at the hands of the Camels of Campbell County Tuesday night.

  • ‘As long as we have breath, our stories can change, too’

    I’m currently reading “A Million Miles in a Thousand Years” by Don Miller.

    He wrote “Blue Like Jazz,” which continues to be the best Christian book I’ve ever read, although not for its literary merit. The book is random and messy, but Miller’s thoughts are raw and profound.

    His new book begins with a movie producer wanting to turn “Blue Like Jazz” into a movie, but he tells Miller that the book as is wouldn’t make a compelling or interesting movie because his real life is boring.

  • Fillies stop losing streak at Deming

    The Harrison County Fillies played Montgomery County last Wednesday, Mason County Saturday and traveled to Deming on Tuesday night as they worked through a busy stretch of the schedule.

    Montgomery County faced a determined Fillies squad who played them tough the entire night.

    In this turnover-plagued game, the heavily favored Lady Indians struggled against the Harrison County zone for the majority of the time.  Harrison trailed by only one at the end of the first period and were still only one down at half 24-23.

  • The last words of Jesus to His church

    God and Jesus will provide whatever is needed for the people who spend eternity in the new heaven and new earth. Rev. 22:1-5  “And he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of the street and on either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, and yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing (or health) of the nations.

  • Thorobreds put Hounds on ice 55-47

    It was cold both inside and outside the gym Saturday night when the Harrison County Thorobreds hosted the Paris Greyhounds. Geoff Cody’s Hounds found the Thorobred defense to be quite a challenge as they hit only 29 percent for the game while Harrison County hit on only 34 percent. 

    The Breds shooting woes were a combination of poor shot selection and the goal seemingly having a lid on it. 

    Paris took an early lead, at one time leading by six, but Harrison County pulled out the win, 55-47.
