  • Death of the dreaded neighbor lady

    I killed my neighbor lady last week.
    I’ve written about her before, about how she’s a huge buttinsky when it comes to my kids and how she’s always running interference for them, “protecting” them from the way I parent them and just basically being a major pain in my neck.

  • We Don’t Miss The Water Until The Well Runs Dry

    Isn’t it amazing how we take things for granted in our life from day to day, not realizing that there must be a reason why everything seems to be going well.

  • Breds edge Paris, drop games at home to Eastern and Fleming Co.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds appear to have hit a mid-season batting slump as they totaled only five hits in each of the last three games winning one and losing two.  
    Last Wednesday, the Breds played host to Paris winning a nip-and-tuck battle 4-3.  
    The Greyhounds led on two separate occasions before Harrison County rallied in the fifth for two runs and the win.  

  • Sports beat

    46th annual Harrison County Invitation Track meet is Saturday
    Harrison County High School will host the 46th annual Harrison County Invitational Track Meet Saturday in the Athletic Complex. The meet begins at 10 a.m. with the field events followed by the running events scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m.  
    The 12-team meet will be a good indicator for the participants as to where they stand against the top competition in the region.

  • Fillies basketball holds year-end banquet

    The Harrison County Fillies were feted at the year-end banquet held last Wednesday evening.  
    Coach Kim Furnish and her assistant coaches spoke of the good year with the district championship and some of the players’ individual accomplishments.  
    Furnish was quick to praise her three departing seniors.  The seniors are Kelsey Roberts, Whitney Gray and Chelsea Ingram. Gray and Roberts have been in the Fillies program from 2010 through 2015 while Ingram has a year on them beginning in 2009.  

  • Wrestling banquet, awards ceremony held Sunday at County Extension Office

    Coach Luke Tucker and the Harrison County High School wrestling team held their season-ending banquet and awards ceremony Sunday in the Extension Office.  
    The awards for 19 different categories were presented by Tucker, Terry Box and the wrestling assistants.   
    Box was on hand to present the Larkie Box Extra Effort Award to junior Colin Coy. This award is named for Box’s father, Larkie, who was a wrestling fan and a proponent of giving the most each time on the mat.

  • Playing for pay: Why not make two divisions again?

    Reading the information about the five “power” conferences’ decision to pay their scholarship athletes made me think of how it used to be.  
    This is not to be confused with the current movement to pay players in college, but instead a decision to add to the scholarship benefits.  
    According to the article I read, other scholarship students who are not on athletic scholarships already receive additional money that they can use as they see fit. This is in addition to room and board, books, fees and supplies.

  • Track team competes in Woodford All Comers

    The Fillies finished third and the Thorobreds sixth in the 10-team Woodford County All Comers Meet on Tuesday, April 14. The meet, which was held on a cool wet day, was shortened due to darkness on the overcast afternoon.
    Kassidy Cook led the way for the Fillies winning the 100M hurdles, the high jump and the long jump. She was also second in the triple jump.  
    Freshman Mersadeez Dietrich was third in the long jump with senior Mia Lail fifth as Harrison County dominated that event.
