  • All along we thought it was Doug...

    Wilson Palmer was a fixture at Biancke’s each weekday morning when Patti and I moved to Cynthiana in the middle 70’s. One of the characteristics of Wilson was that he always sat on the east end of the long table in the front and most of the time John Swinford sat to his immediate left.  
    They sat like that because, for one reason, they could see everyone who came into the restaurant and if they didn’t know them they could find out who they were and why they were in Cynthiana.

  • Thorobreds win scrimmage over...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds played their last scrimmage of the year on Friday evening before stepping into the arena for real Monday night in Oldham County.  
    The Breds traveled to Campbellsville University to face 5th Region power Marion County in a modified scrimmage of three 15-minute, running-clock quarters and a 12-minute quarter with the clock stopping.  
    Harrison County came out on top 80-69 in the format to even its preseason record to 1-1 as the regular season looms ahead.  

  • New rule change for basketball;...

    The new rules for basketball that are supposed to make the game more offensive-friendly could be a good thing, but also has its bad points too.  
    I will agree wholeheartedly that the game has gotten too rough from the college game down to the high school version.  
    It probably is rough in the pros, too, but I don’t watch that so I cannot swear to it.  
    The game has gotten so a hand-checking defender could ride the offensive player out of bounds before a foul would be called on him or her.  

  • Jenkins named Fillies Athlete...

    Harrison County senior Marly Jenkins was voted by her peers as the Fillies’ Athlete of the Month for November last week.  
    The athlete of the month program, which is the brainchild of Fillies basketball coach Kim Furnish, names a top girls’ athlete each month in voting by the female athletes only.  
    The female athletes honor one of their own in this secret ballot to promote athletics among the girls of Harrison County High School.
    Jenkins played soccer for the Fillies since the seventh grade dedicating her young life to the game.  

  • Varsity and Middle School squads...

    The Harrison County Varsity and Middle School cheerleading squads made a clean sweep of the team honors Saturday in the 10th Region Cheer Competition held in Nicholas County High School.  
    The varsity did an outstanding routine along with a great floor exercise that earned them first place in the 10th Region competition.  
    This advances the varsity cheerleaders to the state championships which will be held on Dec. 14 at the All Tech Arena.  

  • Fillies to use deep bench,...

    Coach Kim Furnish doesn’t come right out and say it nor does she even hint at it.  But deep down you got to believe that she thinks this could be the year that the Fillies will be a force in the 10th Region.
