  • Volleyball Fillies district favorite as improvement continues

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball program is in its 12th year compared to the northern part of the region where they are in their 45th or so year.  
    Nevertheless, the improvement continues with Coach Bill Faulkner’s squad as last year they were 25-12 with a district championship and a semi-final berth against Ft. Thomas Highlands.

  • Cheerleaders at a baseball game, I don’t think so

    I really appreciate the Harrison County cheerleaders and all of the hard work that they put into what is almost always a successful season.  
    I admire DeDe Shirley not only because she puts up with Greg but because of all of the hard work that she put into the cheerleading program while she was the guru.  
    I know that the coaches before her, Barb Snopek, Debbie Schmidt, Cathy Slucher, Jenny Nichols and all of the others did a great job of putting HCHS on the cheerleading map.

  • Hopefully, busy July means peaceful August

    July may be over, but if you’re like me, you are still trying to get over June being gone.
    The summer has absolutely flown by. I never thought I would see the day where you blink an eye and the day is over.
    I often refer to my Pappaw in many of my columns, probably because he talked a lot and said witty things.
    I can remember telling him that I wished the end of the week was here.
