(StatePoint) There is no hallmark of summer fun quite like a campfire -- whether you’ve gathered some neighbors and friends in your own backyard or on a backpacking adventure.

Golf tryouts will be in July
Harrison County golf coach Jason Crisp has announced the dates for both the boys’ team tryouts and the girls’ golf team sign ups. In both cases an up-to-date physical has to be with the participant at the tryouts or sign up.
The Thorobreds golf team tryouts will be held Thursday, July 17, at 7:45 a.m. at the Cynthiana Country Club. The format will be an 18-hole tryout with no more than a 10-member team selected.
