  • Fillies soccer welcomes eight...

    Harrison County Fillies soccer coach Kim Jenkins won’t need any help identifying her players as they begin practice for the 2013 soccer season.  
    She has seven seniors and eight returning starters from last season’s 11-5-5 team.  
    The seven seniors returning are Elizabeth Brooks, Haley Carr, Madison Dixon, Taylor Fry, Jaclyn Fryman, Marly Jenkins and Madelyn Judy.  Add returning goal keeper Chelsea Ingram and the Fillies have speed and veteran leadership plus a stingy goal keeper to keep hopes high for a grand season.

  • HCHS and HCMS to begin football...

    Dr. Chris Kerns greeted more than 25 middle school players and Coach Jim Carr close to 55 high school players for the first official day of football practice for 2013.
    The numbers will be greater for both once the Toyota shutdown is over and also when baseball players can report following summer ball.
    Coach Kerns was excited with the attitudes of his young players.  

  • Golf teams working hard to gain...

    Both the Thorobreds and Fillies golf teams have a list of returning players for Coach Jason Crisp’s sixth year at the helm of the Harrison County program.  
    Each team lost one player from last year, Kristin Aubrey for the Fillies and Daniel Klapheke for the Thorobreds.  
    Both teams will miss the contributions that the departed players made, but each also has several veterans to take the reins.

  • Royalty takes Karl Jones...

    Brian Royalty of Cynthiana led all but one lap of the Karl Jones Memorial 100 for the Corbin Speedway Late Model Series on Saturday evening, July 13, but that doesn’t mean that his victory came easy.
    For the first 11 laps, he had to hold off Jason Jones of London in a side-by-side battle for the lead, and that pattern was repeated after each double-file restart following four caution periods.

  • Indecision and poor decisions

    In this week of the Major League All Star game and around the beginning of fall sports for Harrison County High School, I am going to have one final say about the Recreation Department and the Little League season since baseball is all that has been played this year for the most part.  
    First, on Monday the decision was made to not finish the make up games and also to not have a season-ending tournament.  
    This I expect was made because of the number of people on vacation since the season generally would be long over.

    Baseball alums to host golf scramble
    The Cynthiana-Harrison County Baseball Alumni Association is hosting a golf scramble to raise funds for the scholarships given after each baseball season is completed.  
    This will be a fun, fellowship day of golf beginning at 2 p.m. on Aug. 10. Each entrant will receive a nice golf towel and a meal along with an enjoyable round of golf.  
    There will be a shotgun start and interested parties may sign up as a team or as an individual and be placed on a team. The cost is $50 per person or $200 per team.

  • Burley Belles rained out as wet...

    For the first time in the 45 year history of the Burley Belles Golf Tournament rain was the winner and the Cynthiana Country Club and the best of central Kentucky’s lady golfers lost out.  
    “It was too wet to even play on Sunday,” said Cynthiana Country Club Grounds Superintendent Mike Lenox.  
    “We had 62 or 63 entries ready to go but the course just was unplayable,” noted Kay Cox, the Burley Belles chairperson.  

  • At least we are not in Brazil

    Before I go into my column I want to mention that I attended the Cynthiana/Harrison County Recreation Board meeting Monday night.  
    I was a little late but when I arrived the business had already been conducted mainly because there was only WCYN’s Blake Bishop and his lovely wife Kim and myself in attendance other than the board members.  
    For all of the belly aching that I hear on the streets for no one to come to the meetings was a real surprise.  But seeing that, I say to the whiners and the gripers “Keep it to yourself.”
