  • Basketball: The greatest show on earth

    The high school basketball season is into the tournament time, which is one of my favorite times of the year. 

    On a good day and night, a fan can go to one location and watch from four to eight games without leaving the gym. That may sound like a miserable day to some, but that’s what I call hog heaven. 

    High school games still have the biggest percentage of fans that really care about their team winning, I believe.

  • Judge Delaney appointed to take McGinnis seat

    Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear announced Friday that Judge Jay Delaney will be seated to replace Judge Robert McGinnis in Harrison Circuit Court.

    McGinnis resigned earlier this year and has been a senior status judge, which allowed him to continue until a replacement was named.

    Delaney was elected as Harrison District Judge in November 2006 and has served since January 2007.

    He has already announced his intent to seek election to that office in the November 2010 election.

    To the editor:

  • Brotherly Love

    Amber Campbell, 18, will spend her holiday season giving to others.

    Among the presents she’s bought and wrapped for friends and family, Amber is also giving a very unique gift.

    She will give her brother,  Corey, 19, one of her kidneys on Dec. 29.

    In May 2007, Corey was diagnosed with a rare form of kidney disease.

    When doctors began searching for a kidney donor, Amber became determined to save her brother’s life.

    “From the day of his diagnosis, Amber said she wanted to do it,” Amber and Corey’s mom Jennifer said.

  • Jesus continues to shine on those he loves and came to save

    My usual church time is the Saturday night service. If I do go to church on Sunday, I prefer going at 9 a.m.

    A few weeks ago, however, I went to the later Sunday morning service because I was meeting someone afterwards for a newspaper story I was working on.

    On Saturday nights, I like to watch the sky through the giant arched window above the stage area in the sanctuary. At this time of year, the sun sets while church is going on and dusk is gorgeous, with the sky changing from blue to amber to black.

  • Extension service thanked for Recipe for Reading

    To the editor:

    On Nov. 18 and 19, the co-operative extension service hosted “Recipe for Reading” for all fifth grade students in the Harrison County Public School System. During this time students were taught kitchen techniques, measuring, the value of reading and the food guide pyramid.

  • Putting the reason before the season

    I’m trying to remember Jesus.

    Not that I’ve ever really forgotten him. But there once was a time when he was my first and highest thought.

    There once was a time when my relationship with him took priority and precedence over everything else.

    Somewhere, sometime, somehow in the past 30 years I pushed him aside, although that sounds harsh, a violent, one-time shove.
