  • He was a great man

    Even though the Breds are 0-5 and face Highlands this week there were still some positive things that happened on the Hilltop Friday.  
    First though before I go into that, I want to congratulate Jerry Dawson on his hole in one Sunday.  
    I was surprised that this was Jerry’s first hole in one since he is a good player and plays often.  I saw on Facebook Sunday afternoon that Jerry made the shot and since I planned to play anyway made it to the Cynthiana Country Club in time for a free drink.

  • From "Limo" to "Lightning"

    Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy is on vacation this week. Her husband requested this column from 2004 about his 1968 Ford Falcon station wagon be rerun. He still misses that car. Nancy doesn’t.

    Although a brand new Ford F-150 “Lightning” pickup truck tops my husband’s list of dream vehicles, his eyes still mist whenever anyone mentions ‘the limo.”

  • JV Breds conquer Indians Monday in Mt. Sterling 36-0

    Harrison County’s offensive line dominated the line of scrimmage and the defense picked off two passes and recovered three fumbles in route to a 36-0 win over Montgomery County Monday night.  
    The first quarter’s first drive saw Malik Powell romp over and around the defense as he ran 35 yards for a touchdown.  

  • Yellow Jackets fly past Breds on Hilltop

    If the game was only the first and fourth quarters, the Harrison County Thorobreds would have been in the thick of it Friday.  
    After the No. 3-ranked Williamsburg Yellow Jackets scored twice in the first two minutes of the game, Mark Taylor hit Colin Coy with a long touchdown throw to apparently bring the Breds within one score. However, a penalty for hitting a defenseless player was called on Harrison County.  
    This penalty, which appeared to many to be a dead ball foul, was called as a live ball foul and took the points off of the score board.
