  • Some Mother’s Day memories

    I am writing this on Mother’s Day, which I believe to be the most important holiday of the year next to Christmas.  
    Mothers are the strength of most families that I know about and that was certainly the case in mine.  I will not write about Patti because she told me not to but most of you know where the strength and moral fiber come from in our family.
    I have two brothers and a sister and both of my parents worked after my sister, who is seven years younger than my older brother, was about four years old.

    While they did not advance anyone to the state, the Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds played admirably in the 10th Region Tournament held on the courts on the Hilltop last weekend.  
    The tournament will wrap up by Wednesday or before but the girls and boys have made it to the semi final round in singles and doubles.
    The Fillies did very well especially in the doubles where Gracie Roberts and Alexis Lanza advanced to the quarter finals.

    The Harrison County Fillies and the Bryan Station Lady Defenders treated the fans at Shirley Field with a run-scoring spree as the Fillies outlasted the visitors from Lexington, 10-8, last Thursday night.  
    Harrison County scored three times in the first and fourth and single runs in the second and third to take a comfortable lead of 8-4 into the top of the sixth inning.  
    Bryan Station struck for three in the inning to reduce the Fillies’ lead to one at 8-7.

    Harrison County’s baseball Thorobreds’ hitting problems continued Monday evening as they traveled to Mt. Sterling to face region rival Montgomery County.  
    Senior Gus Garrison pitched another masterpiece allowing two hits in seven innings. However, the Indians scored in the bottom of the eighth off C.J. Claypool for the win.  
    Claypool walked the lead off batter in the eighth but catcher Luke Slucher threw him out trying to steal.

  • A beautiful broken life

    When Michelle Smith talks about God, tears trickle down her cheeks.
    A 13th-generation native Floridian, she’s selling or giving away all of her possessions to move to the Congo in central Africa, one of the most volatile areas on the planet.
    She’ll be joining a small handful of other people who feel called by God to “come and die,” as Michelle says, for the sake of the gospel of peace.

    Sophomore Dillon Arnold held Grant County to one hit Monday as the Harrison County Thorobreds defeated the home standing Braves 6-2. Arnold struck out five and walked just one as the Braves were retired in order in five of the seven innings. Grant County’s two runs came in the fourth when shortstop Hoyt Plunkett led off with a single and advanced around the bases on errors.  Centerfielder Damien Inggulis reached on an error and also scored an unearned run on a fielder’s choice.

    The Fillies Hilen Hills Welding Classic did not go as planned as both Western Hills and Pulaski County defeated the Fillies in Friday’s opening night of the Classic.
    Western Hills behind the pitching and hitting of Taylor Slade rolled past the Fillies by an 8-1 score. Slade limited Harrison County to two hits as she went the distance walking one and striking out two.
