  • Where are our priorities

    The Harrison County Thorobreds are off to a great start after the first two games, which is when this was written and that is wonderful.  They are playing an exciting brand of basketball, which is fun to watch and people should go support them.  
    But that is not what this article is about.  
    The University of Kentucky hired a new coach with a football family name, Mark Stoops, and that too is great.  Probably a good hire, at least one with a little imagination, but that is not what this article is about either.

  • Breds start fast, whip St....

    The Larry Kendall era started with a bang last Wednesday night in Maysville and continued Friday night on the Hilltop with two big wins for the Thorobreds.  
    The Breds started a little slow on Wednesday night as the size of the gym and the excitement of the new season caused some missed shots and turnovers.  
    The St. Patrick’s squad who was playing for the second time in 2012-13, having beaten Paris on Tuesday, was a little more relaxed.  
    The score was tied at 11 each at the end of the first quarter.

  • Fillies drop opener as Cougars...

    After losing a 15-point lead in the fourth period and losing 59-56 to Calvary Christian, Fillies Coach Kim Furnish was not happy.  
    “We had veteran players turn the ball over,” she lamented. “We need a guard who can take over a game, not react to the pressure like an inexperienced player.”

  • Player of the Year

    Last Tuesday, Nov. 20, Jacob Markley was recognized by the Mountain Tennis Circuit as 18 and under player of the year and overall winner. The presentation was made in a ceremony in Corbin, Ky. Markley won the title by winning the Pikeville Open, The Garrard County Open and a singles and doubles win in the Kenny Huffman Classic in Pikeville. Wes Barnett was Markley’s partner in the doubles competition. Markley also claimed third place in the Wilson Evans Open held in Berea.

  • Who turned on the lights in this...

    On the virtual eve of the 2012-13 high school basketball season and all of the excitement that is expected this year in Harrison County in both the girls’ and boys’ programs, I want to report on my Friday night experience in Harlan County.
    I think sometimes some Kentuckians look down their noses at our brothers and sisters in the southeastern part of the state.
    “Barefoot Hillbillies” they are called by some of the liberal blue bloods in some cases.
