    Freshman fall to Lexington Catholic 65-54

    In a game that was much closer than the score indicates the Harrison County freshman team lost to Lexington Catholic by a 65-54 score Monday night. The loss dropped the freshman Breds to a 6-3 record for the year

    Harrison County trailed by only four at the end of the first quarter, but fell victim in the second to some hot three-point shooting by the Knights. Catholic stretched the lead to 13 at the half, 41-28, using marksmanship and a pressing defense. 

  • Drivers should slow down and pay attention to avoid wrecks

    To the editor:

    I noted another accident on US 62 that sent two people to the hospital. I have no idea what gets into people’s minds (probably nothing) that causes them to ignore the highway center lines.

    I drive into Cynthiana at least four times a week and daily see people over the center lines, to the point of having a mirror-to-mirror impact.

    Combining lack of attention with speeding, and it’s a common occurrence.

    "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." -Voltaire, 18th Century French philosopher

    And, so it is with letters to the editor.

    I don’t always agree with opinions that readers want to express in our Mailbag section. In fact, sometimes I even huff and mumble when I read them.

    Newspapers stand for freedoms of speech and expression. How can we defend those freedoms then turn around and censor letters just because we don’t agree with them?

  • Fillies drop three of four games in Bourbon tourney

    The Somerset Lady Jumpers were said to be among the top teams in the 12th Region. The Harrison County Fillies were entering the Bourbon County tourney coming off a good showing in Prestonsburg. 

    This was the opening game for both teams in the tournament Saturday at 4 p.m. and looked to be a tight match.  It was hardly a game at all. 

    Somerset jumped out to a 12-0 lead and was really never threatened as they won by a 73-46 margin.
