  • Scott Eagles too tall for Fillies

    Scott High’s Eagles came to town Tuesday evening and defeated the Harrison County Fillies by a 44-33 margin. 

    The Fillies game plan was superb. The one thing that Coach Jason Crisp warned his team about came true in a big way. 

    “I told them if we could keep Stinson from having a big game, we could win this game,” Crisp said. 

    Unfortunately, sophomore Taylor Stinson took advantage of the Fillies’ double team defense on 6-foot-4 Lauren Tibbs and poured in 21 points for the night.

  • Anniversary of the ice storm, time to reassess

    It’s been one year since the devastating ice storm of 2009.  I am tempted to honor the power of Mother Nature by having an evening without electricity (save the refrigerator and using electricity for the pump that delivers water from the cistern!) It was a humbling experience for many of us, which most of us are over; but the impact on many of our trees in the landscape remains apparent.

  • It’s time to take the bull by the horns, fix City Hall gym

    It’s down to the final four in the NFL and I was surprised by three of the four winners.  So I will not talk about that this week except to say I am for the Colts and Saints. I am willing to overlook Drew Brees being Purdue alum because there are two Indiana University players on the Saints. 

    I wish more people would go to the high school ball games.

    The basketball gym does not have a track to stay off of, there isn’t a bad seat in the house and the product in both boys and girls is entertaining.

    In what Coach Russ Riegel determined to be the low point of the season the Harrison County Thorobred wrestling team was soundly defeated Wednesday at Campbell County. The Breds faced the Camels of Campbell County and a team from Mt. Healthy of Ohio.

    The first session of the day with Campbell found the Bred grapplers only winning two matches as they fell by a 64-10 margin.
