  • Harrison County volleyball has little experience in 2014

    Coach Bill Faulkner greeted large numbers for the 2014 volleyball season as 27 players make up the JV/varsity roster.  
    That is the good news.
    The not-so-good news is that only three of the players returning have any varsity experience to speak of and what experience they have is not in the position they are scheduled to play this year.

  • New coach greets experienced cross country squad

    Deanna Lunsford wanted to try something a little different.  She had been an assistant to Harrison County Middle School Track Coach Alicia Glenn for five years when the cross country job became available.  
    Coach Danny Simpson had retired after a lifetime of coaching. Lunsford had just begun to run herself plus her daughter Tamara was on the cross country team.  
    “It seemed like something that I would like and I wanted to help the runners,” said Lunsford. “I am learning on the job and it is exciting.”  

  • Walls, ceiling damaged during wiring heist at Concept

    Sometime before Tuesday, July 29, someone entered the Concept Packaging building and removed nearly all of the building’s wiring.
    Det. Alan Judy said there was extensive damage to the building where the walls were cut into to expose the wire and the ceiling was ripped down.
    “The damage is throughout the building,” Judy said, noting that the warehouse is used as a storage area but the office is vacant.
    Typically, once the wiring is taken from a building or other source, the outer coating is removed and wire sold for scrap, Judy said.

  • Good coaching and maybe not so good coaching

    Before I get into my thought for this week, I want to relay a story given to me by Barb Snopek as she received from one of the participants in the Burley Belles Tournament.  
    A lady from northern Kentucky who was playing in the tournament had a flat tire on her way and stopped in one of our local establishments to have it fixed or replaced.  She was in danger of being late for her tee time but misfortune struck at the most inopportune time for her.

    He may not go so far as to say he’s completely turning in his Wranglers and boots for khakis and ties, but Todd Brannock is moving from agriculture to administration.
