  • Happy days are here again for HC

    What a long rewarding week!! The format of 16 teams in the boys’ state tournament made for long nights and little sleep, but in the end is the right format. 

    I’m not saying that because Harrison County won, Harrison County did win, but because it is a fair way to see who has the best team. 

    If the format is unfair at all it would be to a team, like Harrison County, which had a rain out and had to play five consecutive days. But that won’t happen much and if it does, good teams still find a way most of the time.

  • Tending the summer tomatoes

    I have some healthy looking tomato plants in the garden this year which is refreshing after last year’s diseased lot. Nothing ripe yet but all in all things look promising despite the pop-up down pours and the 90 degree weather.

    Hatfield helps East seniors win over West seniors 12-3 Sunday

    Harrison County’s Rachel Hatfield had a triple and a RBI to help the East squad defeat the West, 12-3, Sunday at the University of Kentucky Softball Complex. 

    Hatfield played third base for seven innings in the extreme heat Sunday turning in a solid performance in the field to go along with her hitting. The East team was also coached by Harrison County head coach Christine Garnett along with Larry Slone of Rowan County, Geoff Stewart of Boyd County and Shane Weaver of North Laurel.
