    The Harrison County golf team has been plagued by the weather like several of the other fall sports.

    The home Indians won the Indian Creek Golf Course event with a team total of 294.  Scott County was next with 299 followed by Madison Central with 302.

  • More of likes and dislikes

    I had several people tell me during the past week that they liked my likes and dislikes article.  
    I feel that this is the case because they too are annoyed by and/or made happy by certain things that happen in the world of sports. I will add some more.
    The University of Kentucky win over Florida to break the losing streak made me happy. Not so much because UK won but because it made so many people that I know joyous.

    The Harrison County Fillies have been spending as much time on the bus waiting as they have traveling as of late.  Similar to last week’s Anderson County visit the trip Wednesday to Bourbon County saw a long delay for lightning which had a 45 minute wait on the bus.  
    The delay shortened the junior varsity match in which the Fillies lost a hard fought battle 1-0 to the Lady Colonel junior varsity.

  • Kieffer pears ripen off the tree

    Requests for Kieffer pears have been rolling in lately. We do not have volume, only a few here and there that we have planted in the last five years, or so.  
    Most of the really good Kieffer pears are found on old farm sites that have been long vacant. The Kieffer pear is a remnant of a once thriving agricultural model that fed the whole family.   
    Among the farm smorgasbord was the small home orchard; and among the orchard the Kieffer pear still stands if nothing else does.
