  • Using dowsing technique to determine melon’s ripeness

    Sometimes I’m left scratching my head and feeling like perhaps somewhere there is a camera filming my reaction to some silly situation.
    As I’ve said before, this is my second year growing a box garden in my backyard.
    Last year it was tomatoes and herbs. This year, tomatoes, watermelon and cantaloupe.
    I didn’t know what to expect when I planted the melons. Certainly not that they would overflow the box and stretch into my yard.
    But they did.

  • Why church?

    Scattered throughout any community are tiny, struggling churches.
    Sometimes they’re invisible. If you blink while driving past them you’ll miss them. Or they’re eyesores — run down, weather worn.
    In my 20 years covering local religion for the newspaper, I’ve gotten to know the people at some of these little churches.
    I’ve attended their services and could count the people in the pews with two hands and not need a third.

  • Soccer Breds split big rivalry matches with Scott Co. and GRC

    Thursday night the Thorobreds traveled to Georgetown to face Scott County in a big match against the 9-2 Cardinals.  
    The seniors on the Harrison County team had not beaten Scott County while they were in high school so a win was a high priority.
    The game started poorly as, although the Breds were playing well, the ball fell right at a Scott County player’s feet after a misdirected clearance and the Cardinals were on the board 1-nil early.  

  • Fillies soccer wins, loses, draws, record now 5-3-4

    Juniors Haley Carr and Taylor Fry each scored a goal and freshman Amber Smith also added one as the Fillies played what Coach Kim Jenkins thought may have been the best effort of the season.

  • When we were kids we called this a Pig Pile

    After Saturday’s football game with Western Kentucky we will begin to see what we called as kids a pig pile.  
    A pig pile for those of you who were either never a kid or just haven’t heard the term is when one person gets down and the rest pile on top of him.  
    The person on the bottom is the pig and the rest the ones who pile on.  
    After the Western Kentucky loss, University of Kentucky coach Joker Phillips will play the pig and the media will be the people who pile on him.
