  • Furnish takes reins of...

    After serving her time as assistant to both Mac Whitaker and Piper Akin at her alma mater and a year in Pendleton County, Kim Furnish is getting her chance to coach the Fillies.  
    The 2002 graduate of Harrison County High School was named head coach last week and has hit the ground running.
    Until the dead period, which is June 25 to July 9, the Fillies are practicing three days a week, playing for full days at Pendleton County and Augusta and attending camp at the University of Louisville June 17, 18, and 19.  

  • What a difference a year makes

    I am writing this on the anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 1944, and want to stop for a minute and thank all of the veterans and current military people who are keeping us free from external harm. We do enough harm to ourselves without having outside influences attacking us. Thanks to all of you.
    It is also the 35th anniversary of our oldest daughter’s birth and thus a very special day for Patti and me. There is more to the story, but not for this column.

  • Breds win district title Friday...

    Harrison County continued to dominate district play as the Thorobreds won the 38th District Title Friday night, 10-2, over Nicholas County.
    The championship game, which had been delayed for three days by rain and poor field conditions, was played at Pendleton County.  
    Coach Mac Whitaker used eight pitchers in the contest to give his pitching staff a little work to prepare for the upcoming regional, which began Monday at Campbell County.  

  • Martin’s pitching, balanced...

    Sophomore Jordan Martin pitched six innings of four-hit baseball giving up only one run and the Harrison County Thorobreds avenged an earlier defeat by bouncing Bishop Brossart out of the region tournament.
    The Mustangs had defeated the Breds 15-5 on May 12, but Monday was a different day.
    Bishop Brossart did score a run in the top of the first when Travis Norton singled and scored on a single by Trevor Bezold.

  • Ingram and Hall lead track team...

    Natasha Ingram and Campbell Hall each brought home a third place finish Thursday in the KHSAA Class 2A Track Meet held at Owsley Frazier Park at the University of Louisville.  
    Ingram scored all 10 of the Fillies points as she placed third in the discus and fifth in the shot put.
    She threw the discus a personal best 111 feet, 5 inches, which is the fourth best throw in school history.

  • ESPN-Home to LeBron and the...

    Although this doesn’t go with the headline of my article, I must say this. Good-bye Jim Tressel.
    Before this is over, Ohio State will make Southern Cal look like Rose Hulman in the cheating category.
    Of course, Tressel’s former players and other Ohio State alums and apologists are saying what a great guy Tressel is and maybe that’s correct. But as far as the players go, if the coach doesn’t enforce the rules and lets you do whatever you want, then of course he’s a good guy.
