    “This is one way to develop a feeling of closeness and work as a team,” said Coach Jimmy Carr when asked about the upcoming team camp.  “The players will devote a lot of time to playing and hitting harder and doing things with and for their teammates.”
    The team camp begins Thursday at 11 a.m. and goes through Sunday at 1 p.m..  
    “We will close down Sunday with an early practice then a short church service before going to our homes,” noted Carr.

  • The Jungle won by Works and...

    Saturday’s rain didn’t last long and neither did the suspense for the tournament as Jason Works and his guest, Jake Jenkins, took a five-stroke lead on the first day and were never challenged in winning the fifth annual “The Jungle” at the Cynthiana Country Club.  
    The 19-below-par handicapped score was five better than the duos of Colin and Mike Duffie, Brad Marshall and Jim Shields, Kevin Letcher and Blake Bishop, and Frank and Joe Henson.

  • 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.

  • 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.
