  • Football in full swing on the...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds and the Harrison County Middle School Colts are busy preparing for the new season as they begin practice for this fall’s schedules.  
    HCMS Coach Chris Kerns and his staff greeted more than 60 players from the sixth, seventh and eighth grades as they began last Wednesday with parent meetings before the non-contact portion of the practices began on Thursday.  

  • Lewis and Collins overall...

    Chris Lewis and IV Collins shot a red hot 96 on Sunday morning. That score survived challenges from two other duets to win 2014’s The Jungle by one shot 163 to 164.  
    Tom Korona/Ron Reanult and David McIlvain/Shearl Moore came in just one stroke shy of tying and putting the match into playoffs.  
    Johnny Mac Dawson/Clint Bishop trailed by three strokes at 166 and Josh Ashbrook/Brian Parker came in with 167, just four strokes off the pace.

  • A hodge podge of thoughts

    I am sitting in my office on this cloudy weather-threatening day thinking about a bunch of different sports-related items.  
    I am glad the World Cup is finally over after what seemed to be months of coverage.  
    Germany won over Argentina 1-nil (0) Sunday and then the people in Argentina rioted with 30 police people injured and 60 or so rioters arrested.  
    What in the world is wrong with these people?  
    Football is almost here as practice has begun for both the high school and middle school teams.

  • 5th Jungle Golf Tournament this...

    The annual member/guest golf tournament at the Cynthiana Country Club has been held for years with the name being changed to the Jungle in 2009.  
    This was a result of the untimely death of one of the most outstanding people in the area, Jim Letcher, who was a key leader in the Cynthiana Country Club, the Cynthiana Lions Club, the Cynthiana Christian Church and much more.

  • 45th annual Burley Belles looks...

    Although there is still more than two weeks before the event, the 45th annual Burley Belles field promises to be one of the best in some time.  
    This year was scheduled to be the 46th annual, but last year’s rain caused the cancellation of the event and since “not one ball was struck” this will be the 45th Burley Belles outing.  
    The tournament begins with practice rounds on Thursday, July 24, with the competition starting early on Friday, July 25, and concluding on Saturday.
