  • Who is wearing a Halloween mask?

    Halloween holds a lot of memories of dastardly deeds and going to relative’s house to trick or treat for me and we always wore a mask.  
    At least we did when we were young, before the dastardly deed segment came about all, of course, BIKP (before I knew Patti).  
    Unlike the current practice of truck loads of kids unloading on one end of the street and stopping at every house whether they are people known or not, we only went to homes where we knew the people.  

  • Bowlers have some big shoes to...

    The Harrison County High School bowling team lost five bowlers last year due to graduation. Four boys and one girl moved on to college or other endeavors after completing the four years at Harrison County High School.  
    Ashley Boyd, Justin Edens, Justin Mitchell, Zach Schneider and James Snapp will all be missed this year by the Fillies and Breds bowling teams.  

  • Harriers finish season in the...

    The Harrison County Cross Country team finish its regular season Saturday as runners competed in the Meet of Champions at Masterson Station Park.  
    The meet, which had 14 varsity girls’ teams, 31 varsity boys’ squads along with many middle and elementary runners is considered to be one of the top meets in the state for the season. It is, in fact, the championship for middle and elementary schools and there were more than 1,500 runners in all in the middle and elementary fields.

  • Woodford County rolls past Breds...

    The game started with a 10-plus minute drive by the Harrison County Thorobreds which ended with only a field goal by senior Daniel Klapheke.  
    This drive, while what the Breds wanted, was an omen of things to come in more ways than one.  
    Harrison County committed three illegal procedure penalties on the drive which showed a lack of focus, according to Coach Jim Carr.  

  • Breds drop hard-fought sub-state...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team made its first trip to the sub-state a memorable one by battling Boone County tooth and nail before dropping a 1-0 verdict Tuesday night in Florence.  
    Showing remarkable school spirit, two pep buses, much of the football and basketball teams and hundreds of other supporters made the trek to northern Kentucky to support the history-making team.  
    The game was scoreless for the first half though it seemed to be played for the longest time on the Harrison County end.  

  • Soccer Breds win first regional...

    “We have peaked at the right time,” a jubilant Coach Nick Hill stated. “I could not be more proud of this group of young men.”
    This statement came on the heels of arguably two of the biggest wins ever for the Harrison County Thorobreds soccer program.  
    The first step in winning the regional title came on Thursday when the 13th-rated Bishop Brossart Mustangs came onto the Hilltop fully expecting to end the Breds’ season.  

  • Thorobreds win first game with...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds won their first game of the season Friday night and by doing so qualified for the Class 4A playoffs in District 7.  
    The Thorobreds traveled north to Pendleton County Friday and ran over the Pendleton County Wildcats 28-0 in an impressive second-half performance.
    Both teams opened up slowly on offense as the Wildcats took the opening kick off and were three plays and out and the Breds returned the favor on their first possession.  

  • Recreation: Do we all not...

    While running the risk of repeating some of Louis Kendall’s letter to the editor of last week, I want to put my two cents worth into the recreation or lack of recreation in Harrison County.
    First, I will contend that we cannot offer too much.  
    Look at the success of the yoga and Zumba classes that are going on in different parts of town plus the number of ladies who go to Curves for exercise.  

  • Harrison County Invitational...

    If Coach Danny Simpson had known that several of his runners were going to fall ill last week, he wouldn’t have set such a rigorous schedule.  
    “Two meets in three days is too much, especially with sick runners,” said the coach. “This was not smart scheduling on my part.”
    The Harrison County Invitational was held at the Cynthiana Country Club on Thursday with five girls’ teams, four boys’ teams and three middle school squads participating.
