  • Downtown sidewalk project could include other side, too

    Work continues on the Main Street sidewalk project and hopes are that at least some of it will be finished by next weekend.

    Wayland Quisenberry, who is in charge of the local Renaissance program, said he would like to see some of it complete by next Saturday's A Taste of Harrison County festival.

    "We probably won't get it all finished [by that time]," he said.

    One thing he wanted to clear up, however, is that this project is different than the Safe Sidewalks project, recently funded through a grant from the state government.

  • Breds take on Panthers Saturday

    The task of first-year Harrison County football coach Aaron Stepp gets a little tougher this week as his beaten and battered team takes to the field for the first time against a much-improved Fleming County Panther squad in the first game of the Recreation Bowl on Saturday in Mt. Sterling.

    Last year, these same two teams squared off in the Recreation Bowl, with Harrison County coming away with an easy 53-8 win.

    This year, look for a much different score.

  • Football not as fast-paced as it appeared on British TV

    Heres another example of you-cant-always-believe-what-you-see.

    On Tuesday night before the Breds soccer game with Grant County, I had a nice long visit with one of the referees for the contest, Alan Southerland.

    After seeking Alan out to pay him for his services that evening and introducing myself to him, it took about a nanosecond to realize that he was originally from somewhere other than Central Kentucky.
