  • Thorobreds rally falls short Monday on Hilltop

    When the Covington Scott Eagle players woke up Tuesday morning they probably pinched themselves to see if what happened Monday night was a dream. 

    After all, they had played in Harrison County against the powerful Thorobreds, who were 12-3 while they had a 6-10 season record, and Harrison County hardly ever loses at home. 

    Well, it wasn’t a dream as Scott High rolled to the Hilltop Monday afternoon and took home an 8-7 victory over Harrison County.

  • Shain Stephens will do ‘amazing things’ as sheriff

    To the editor:

    I have had the pleasure of knowing Shain Stephens for quite a few years. I have also had the pleasure of working with Shain at the Paris Police Department. I am hampered by a limit of 300 words contained in this endorsement letter. I could not possibly communicate to the reader the type of officer Shain Stephens is by using only 300 words. I shall try nonetheless.

  • Track teams participate in two meets last week

    The Harrison County track teams ran into some tough competition in the Scott County all comers meet Tuesday, April 13. 

    This meet was one day after the teams returned from spring break and the rust was apparent. On top of the lay off, the teams participating were some of the area’s best, which led to the Thorobreds and Fillies not scoring as well as hoped.  Despite the rustiness, the Fillies finished third in the girls’ competition which had 10 teams trying for points.
