  • Local students participate in...

    Macy Robles and Mackenzie Shepard, Harrison County Middle School, and Justin Barnes and Lauren Shepard, Harrison County High School, had the opportunity to shoot in competition at the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) World Archery Tournament at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Fla.

  • There should have been a quicker...

    Last week we all should have been focused on being thankful for the veterans who gave their all and continue to do so for our country.  
    There were many different ceremonies before the college games and professional games that were played this weekend, but none was any better than the one at Williamsburg High School Friday night.
    I was part of the officiating crew for the second round playoff game at the Whitley County school and witnessed this ceremony.   

  • Fillies Clinic
  • Cyclones
  • Cynthiana Storm
  • Sparks accepts position as...

    One of the rewards for a parent or a grandparent comes when an offspring takes advantage of the benefits they have earned or been given and makes a success of their life.
    Austin Sparks graduated from Harrison County High School in 2005 having lettered in baseball and golf while also maintaining a more than acceptable grade point average.  
    The son of Ray and Jennie Sparks and the grandson of Fannie and Joe Pat McKee and Lee and Nona Sparks, Austin was an honor role student and was active at Cynthiana Baptist Church while in high school.  

  • Thorobreds end season with 59-6...

    If one of your buses breaks down on the way to the game that is probably not a omen that better things are in store.  
    That was the case Friday night for the Harrison County Thorobreds football team.  One of the three buses broke down around Morehead causing the team to have to pile into the two remaining buses along with all of the equipment and finish the 80 or so miles to Ashland.

  • Veterans return but losses are...

    Interim coach Luke Tucker is quick to tell you that he would like the job as head coach, but that without Russ Riegel, he wouldn’t be much of a coach.  
    “He was my mentor and my coach,” said Tucker Monday evening. Whoever is the new coach has a huge set of shoes to fill.”  
    Riegel’s Hall of Fame knowledge and coaching techniques are only part of the absence that will be felt on the mats this season. Also gone are two seniors who were key to the program’s grand success over the past several years.  

  • Hunters breakfast to be offered...

    St. Edward School, 107 N. Walnut and Kehoe Alley, will host a hunters breakfast on Nov. 12 from 4-9 a.m.
    Drive through pickup is $6. Pre order by noon Friday at 234-6841, Saturday morning call ahead at 588-6100. Sausage, eggs, biscuits and hot coffee (sit downs) available for $8.

  • Changing quarterbacks is like...

    Any time a team is doing badly in football the answer is change the quarterback or fire the coach or both.  
    Such is the case at the University of Kentucky and also for many other teams.  Let’s run down the list.  
    First, everyone is all too aware of the grand success of Maxwell Smith at UK. The Lexington media beats this to death, but the fact is he did lead the team Saturday to the first SEC win of the year.  
    Granted, it was over a horrible team in Ole Miss, but nevertheless Kentucky won.
