  • Grayson edges Henson for Mooney...

    Mason County’s Izzy Grayson sank a long birdie putt on the 18th hole Sunday to win the Joe Mooney Invitational by one stroke over defending champion Joe Henson.  
    Henson, who is a two-time winner, made his birdie on the hole after narrowly missing an eagle, which would have put the match into a playoff only to see Grayson sink one from more than 10 feet for the win.  

  • Auto Systems’ rally falls short...

    In the Little League Game of the Week last week, the Auto Systems team rallied for three runs in the bottom of the fifth but came up one run short in an 8-7 loss to LEE.  
    LEE (Lucas Equine Equipment) jumped on top early in the game as they scored two runs on two hits and an error in the opening inning.  
    Casey Sledd doubled and scored for Auto Systems in the bottom of the first when he advanced on a single by Thomas Thompson and scored on a wild pitch for a 2-1 score after one.

  • Some odds and ends before the...

    I feel like I need to express my concerns and observation about the Recreation Department situation and what I think I know about what is going on there.  
    As most of us know the director resigned, asked to be rehired all at nearly the same time and is no longer the director.  
    Jim Roberts is acting director, which is an even more difficult job than being director and he is doing his level best.

  • Coppage plays in East/West Games

    The reigning Miss Softball, Ashley Coppage, didn’t have the spectacular performance that she hoped to have last weekend in the annual East/West All Star series.  
    Her East senior team won two of three games defeating both junior squads and losing in a 10-inning game to the West seniors on an over throw at home with a rain slick ball 3-2.  
    The three nine-inning games played in two days was a difficult situation for the East seniors as they had only one pitcher due to some players having other commitments.

  • Thorobreds play two summer...

    It was a two-win, one-loss week for the Thorobreds’ summer program last week, which is hard to accomplish when there are only two games.  
    Harrison County won against George Rogers Clark on Tuesday and again defeated Mason County on Thursday for two summer game wins.  
    The loss came on Monday when senior Dillon Pulliam, last year’s leading scorer, suffered a foot injury and was lost for the summer.  
    Pulliam was playing with his AAU squad when the injury occurred.

  • Fillies basketball travels to...

    Coach Kim Furnish and the Harrison County Fillies are keeping the road hot this summer as they are traveling this part of the state playing basketball.  
    Last week started in Morehead as the Fillies traveled to Rowan County to play Russell, Robertson County and Mason County on Tuesday.  
    Harrison County bested both Russell and Robertson County, but fell to the Lady Royals by eight points coming up a little short late in the game.

  • Is baseball becoming a rich fans...

    Since I returned from my Florida baseball trip on Sunday I have been doing some thinking about (and adding up expenses) the amount of time and money that we invested in this trip.
    We are not rich, not even close, and I wonder now how we could ever do something like this again.  
    Before I get into the trip though I want to make a comment that might hack a few people off, but here goes.  
    When I was driving up West Pleasant Street on my way home I thought I was back in Miami.
