The Harrison County Middle School Colts traveled to Winchester Thursday for a football doubleheader with the newly formed Campbell Junior High School.
Clark Middle and Conkwright Middle have combined to make one very large junior high school in Winchester.
The seventh grade team lost, 38-0, after getting down at the half by 30-0.
Campbell was using its superior size and speed to take advantage of the young Colts early in the game.
After the freshman squad and the junior varsity lost two games to none, the Harrison County Volleyball Fillies took the varsity match 3-1 over the Pendleton County Lady Cats.
The match played in Falmouth was a very spirited affair with a good contingent of students and parents on hand to cheer on the home team.
Still the Fillies were able to prevail 25-20, 22-25, 25-22, 25-23 to open the season in a positive manner.
The Cynthiana Country Club Member/Member Tournament sponsored by Bank Trust went to a playoff before the team of Jim Fuller and Gary Philpott were able to grab the championship.
In an unusual development, Philpott was unable to return for the playoff and Fuller took on the duo of Gary Varner and Bob Whitaker for the title.
All involved shot par on the first hole before Fuller birdied the second to win the match.
The last scrimmage of the pre-season was held on LeBus Field last Friday with the Breds going down to defeat to the Mercer County Titans, 6-2.
The match was a tale of two halves as Harrison County jumped out to an early lead with good passing and offensive runs.
The Thorobreds scored about 20 minutes into the match on a goal by Jesse Klapheke as he volleyed a rebound off the goal post into the net for a 1-nil advantage.
The offense continued to push the issue as they scored again five minutes later on a goal by Logan Wiley.
A 50-year celebration will be held to honor Patsy Palmer Hampton on Sunday, Aug. 17, at 10:45 a.m. at Republican Christian Church.
Hampton has given 50 years of service to her church. She began playing the organ at church when she was 15 years old.
Hampton said she began taking piano lessons from Irene Smith, who played for the First United Methodist Church in Cynthiana, when she was in the first grade. She continued taking lessons through high school and even one college class. Each of the other four Palmer sisters also took piano lessons from Mrs. Smith.
Bob Pierce, Tobacco Specialist with the University of Kentucky has reported that Blue Mold has been found in Lewis, Mason, Jackson and Clay Counties in Eastern Kentucky.
Anyone with tobacco set in mid-June should be watching very closely with our current weather conditions. We would encourage anyone who is approaching topping time go ahead and top the tobacco and spray it with MH-30. This should reduce the chances of Blue Mold once the growth patterns have slowed on the tobacco.
One night several weeks ago, my husband said good night, ran into the bedroom and locked the door — something he’s done dozens of times, always in a playful, good-natured way, always unlocking it within seconds.
