  • This is a baseball community

    Not to take anything away from football, basketball, track, soccer, volleyball, wrestling, archery, fishing, tennis or cheerleading, but this is a baseball community.  
    We are good or have been good and will be good again in the aforementioned sports, but baseball is the sport that dominates our minds and thoughts in Harrison County.  
    This was obvious on Saturday night when the first annual Hall of Fame banquet was held by the Cynthiana/Harrison County Baseball Alumni Association.  

  • Coppage leads Kentucky All Stars...

    Kentucky’s Miss Softball Ashley Coppage was three for six in three games with a walk to lead the Kentucky Senior All Stars to a two-games-to-one series victory over the Tennessee Stars.  
    Tennessee was divided between East and West Stars so the Kentucky girls had to play two times last Wednesday in Murfreesboro and then again the next day in Cookeville against a fresh Tennessee team with 11 Division 1 signees.
    Coppage, who spent last season at first base for the Fillies, played first base in each game for the All Star squad.  

  • Baseball Hall of Fame hosts...

    What was the dream of a few men became reality Saturday night as the Cynthiana /Harrison County Alumni Association held its first Hall of Fame Banquet.  
    The banquet, which was held at the Harrison County High School cafeteria, feted 15 of the county’s best baseball players in a ceremony that lasted for better than three hours.  
    This was reminiscence of Cynthiana High School and Harrison County High School from before 1919 to the present, with a crowd of more than 100 family, friends and supporters in attendance.

  • 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.
