  • This is what bedtime stories are...

    I try to get home at night in time to tell my two youngest grandchildren a bedtime story.  
    This time of year when I umpire a lot and other times when I am working and traveling, I don’t get home to tell one but many nights I do.  
    My stories vary from fairy tales with my own particular spin on them or stories from when I was young as I remember them.  
    No stories about “little Jerry” or the such, but entertaining tidbits of the G or at least PG rating are what the grandchildren ask me to tell them.

  • Score 'N' More
  • Fillies Cancer Awareness
  • Breds win four more, improve to...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds continued their mastery of the 38th District as they won three district games last week before defeating Scott High’s Eagles on Alumni/Fence of Fame Night on Friday.
    The Thorobreds started the district games with a doubleheader thrashing of Robertson County.  
    The Wednesday twin bill was completely dominated by the Breds as the home team won by 22-0 and 10-0 scores while playing the entire roster.  
    Eighteen Thorobreds batted in the first game which lasted five innings.  

  • Fillies take Senior Night win...

    The Harrison County Fillies rebounded from a 10-0 defeat two weeks ago in Carlisle and handed the Nicholas County Lady Jackets a 7-2 loss Thursday night at Shirley Field.
    The Senior Night for Ashley Coppage, Morgan Florence and Jasmeen Smith was made even more special by the resounding victory over the district rival, Lady Jackets.  
    Errors continued to plague the Fillies, however, as Nicholas County scored in the first when Megan Bretz reached on an error at short and scored on Shelby Wade’s single with two outs for an unearned run.  

  • Tumska and Markley qualify for...

    Harrison County High School juniors Sofia Tumska and Jacob Markley each finished fourth in the regional competition to qualify for the state championships next week at the University of Kentucky courts.  
    Coach Ron Markley was overjoyed with the team’s performance.  
    “We won every one of our opening matches,” said Markley. “Everyone advanced to at least the second round and four of our players went to at least the third before losing.”  

  • Track teams finish season strong...

    The Harrison County High School Thorobreds and the Fillies completed the 2013 track regular season last week with a Tuesday meet at Scott County and a Saturday meet in Lexington at Bryan Station.
    The Thorobreds will be going into the regional this Saturday with a couple of strong showings behind them as they won the 11-team boys’ meet at Scott County and finished fourth in the 11-team meet on Saturday.
    Saturday’s meet had four of the Lexington schools as well as Scott County and Western Hills among others in the highly competitive meet.  

  • Violence in sports, how long...

    I spent Monday this week working in Indiana, which gives me a lot of time to listen to the radio while in the car.
    I listen mainly to sports radio but now and then will venture over to the news, which generally depresses me so I don’t listen for any long periods of time.
    Monday the news had quite a bit about the soccer official who was killed when an irate player hit him in the side of the head and killed him on April 27 in Utah.
