  • TUESDAY IS PRIMARY ELECTION

    Tuesday is the primary election.

    To say it’s an important primary election would be an understatement. Many Harrison County political offices will be on Tuesday’s ballot, including sheriff, jailer and some magistrate and constable positions.

    It might be May, but for some of those running, it feels like November.

    Over 12,000 voters are registered in Harrison County. In the 2008 primary, only 33.9 percent of those registered voters came to the polls and cast ballots.

  • Thorobreds win Bulldog Classic in Louisa, rout Paris Greyhounds on Hilltop

    The Harrison County Thorobreds keep adding to Coach Mac Whitaker’s career-win total as they won the rain-shortened Bulldog Classic at Lawrence County on Saturday after routing the Paris Greyhounds Thursday on the Hilltop. 

    The Lawrence County Bulldog Classic featured the top teams in three regions as the Breds top the 10th region, Belfry and Lawrence County top the 15th and Boyd County along with Ashland head the 16th region. 

  • Cedar-apple rust cycle begins

    After the rains hit a few weeks ago, enough moisture settled in to trigger the development and “ripening” of some really freaky looking appendages. It is called cedar-apple rust and many gardeners where curious about the large, orange gelatinous spore horns hanging from their cedars like Japanese lanterns. 

    They strike awe and dread from me because they are fabulous looking creations of nature, but they also forewarn a rust problem in the orchard for next year.
