  • Liar, liar, pants on fire

    The Castaways sang these lyrics back in the good old days of music (1965) when you could understand what the lyrics were in a song and when you did understand them it wasn’t “X” rated.  
    In fact, this song was performed on Gilligan’s Island by Ginger, Mary Ann and Mrs. Howell so it had to be “G” rated, but I regress.
    The lyrics now fit many of the “stars “of sport and unfortunately some who are not stars.

    Central Kentucky Conference Tournament Friday at Cynthiana Country Club
    The golf season for Harrison County High School begins this Friday as the Fillies host the Central Kentucky Conference Tournament at the Cynthiana Country Club.  
    Nine teams will begin play at 8 a.m. and play the nine-hole course twice in a tough match for the season’s kick off.  
    Teams expected are Bourbon County, George Rogers Clark, Bishop Brossart, Montgomery County, Mason County, Nicholas Country, Pendleton County, Grant County and the host Fillies.

  • NFHS changes some rules for 2013...

    The National Federation of High Schools, as usual, changed some of the rules for the upcoming season.  
    Many of the rule changes are minor modifications as in other years, but a couple of them are changes that the coaches will have to emphasize as they are kick-off related changes.
    The first change listed is a minor one, but one that was more often enforced than one might think.  
    The rules committee voted to allow solid colored moisture absorbing towels to be worn by players.  

  • Fifth annual “Jungle” this...

    “This tournament is a small way we can honor and remember our good friend,” said Doug Hampton of the Palmer-Hampton Insurance and Real Estate Agency. “Jim Letcher and I played golf every Sunday at 12:20 p.m. for 26 years if it was 55 degrees or more.”
    The tournament formerly called the Palmer-Hampton Member/Guest was changed to “The Jungle” in 2009 following Letcher’s untimely death.  
    Letcher was an active member of the Cynthiana Country Club and of the community as a whole.  

  • Soccer Breds hope to improve on...

    Many high school soccer teams that lost eight starters from the previous year would be crying the blues hoping to be able to just compete while they rebuild.  
    Not the Harrison County Thorobreds.  
    The Breds, coached by Nick Hill, are anxious to get the season started so they can improve on last year’s historic region winning season.

  • Football season predictions

    Alabama will win the championship again. Nice short article.
    I’m a little surprised at the preseason polls that I see putting Texas A&M up really high in the national picture and not giving LSU much of a chance to compete with Alabama and Georgia for the overall SEC title.  
    Johnny Manziel has the media in a frenzy over the Aggies and I must say the schedule favors a good showing but not a grand power rating.  

  • Harrison County volleyball hopes...

    “It was our first losing year in 10 years,” Coach Bill Faulkner said of the 2012 season. “We were 14-18, but could have been even with a few breaks. We will be better this year.”
    The volleyball Fillies have six seniors returning, three with varsity experience and three others with some varsity and a lot of junior varsity experience.  
    Two other sophomores return with starting experience, one a libero and one at left outside hitter, so Faulkner is feeling pretty good about his experienced players.

  • Harrison County cheerleaders...

    Coach Jessica Reynolds and the Harrison County cheerleaders do not actually have an off season.  
    At the end of each school year the seniors move on to college or to a chosen field and new young ladies take their place.  
    The work continues with new programs and material put in place for the next year of competition and cheering on the Fillies and Breds.
