  • Life is short, then you’re gone

    St. Louis Cardinal outfielder Oscar Taveras’ death Sunday made me think about how quickly a person can go from upright to six feet under.  
    Here was a 22-year-young man with an extremely promising future and everything to live for losing his life in a car accident along with his 18-year-old girlfriend. What a shame.  
    This was a terrible accident but as callous as it sounds “accidents happen.”  

  • Springboks Fall season U12 Girls...
  • Sports beat

    Friday is Senior Night for HCHS football
    The seniors on this year’s Harrison County Thorobreds football team will be honored in festivities before the Woodford County game Friday night.  The game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. with the ceremony slated for 6:45 p.m.  
    Tailgating will begin at 6 p.m., outside the entrance gate. It will be sponsored by Dr. Rick Arnold with Randolph Thomas and Matt Moore cooking hot dogs, steaks and other great eats.  

  • Score 'N' More
  • Thorobreds fall to Colonels...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds offense once again fizzled to a stop gaining only five total yards Saturday afternoon in a 56-0 loss to the Covington Catholic Colonels.  
    The big Colonel defensive line dominated the youthful Thorobreds making running and passing difficult all afternoon.  
    Penalties were also an issue as the Thorobreds were flagged for 81 yards on nine infractions.  
    Covington Catholic scored on their first possession after the Breds picked up one first down and punted the ball away in the game’s opening series.  

  • Springboks U-10 soccer teams...

    The Springboks had two Under-10 girls soccer teams travel to Beaver Creek, Ohio, last weekend to take part in the BSA Haunted Classic Soccer Tournament.  
    The tournament had 336 girls’ teams, ages 8 to 14, and included teams from Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia, Michigan and Indiana.  
    The Springboks white team, which had four Harrison County players along with two from Bourbon County and two from Scott County, finished second in their division.  

  • Soccer Breds grab 38th District...

    The weather tried to prevent it, but eventually the Harrison County Thorobreds won the 38th District Soccer Championship defeating Pendleton County, 3-2, Saturday afternoon in Falmouth.  
    The Breds defeated Mason County, 7-0, in Thursday’s first match of the district tournament sending the Royals home with a season-ending mark of 0-14.  
    The field was sloppy but not the quagmire that would have been if the match had been played on Tuesday as originally scheduled.  

  • Georgetown College Homecoming
  • A hunting I tried to go

    During the years that I have written this column and broadcast the Saturday radio show, I have been asked by some why I have never talked hunting or fishing.  
    I am going to give some examples of my limited experience with the two and you will be able to decide on your own the reason.
    First, I will discuss fishing, which I have almost no experience in as I have been two or maybe three times.  
    My dad was not a fisherman and may have taken me and my brothers once, but I don’t remember for sure.  

  • Bishop Brossart ends Breds...

    The 38th District champion Harrison County Thorobreds were no match for the runners up of the 37th District. Bishop Brossart defeated the Breds 9-0 Tuesday night in the 10th Region Tournament hosted by Scott High.  
    The loss ended the season for the Breds with a 7-10-1 record while the Mustangs advance to Thursday’s semi finals with a 15-5 mark.  
    Brossart will face Montgomery County (19-2) in the second match Thursday night at 8 p.m.  
    The host Eagles will battle George Rogers Clark in the 6 p.m. match Thursday.
