  • I might worry too much

    I wanted to write about the golf weekend at Perry Park, but I learned that just as with Las Vegas, what happens at Perry Park stays at Perry Park.  
    Let me just say that I was disappointed in how visitors to the three golf courses take care of the course.  
    It concerns me that Americans have gotten so lazy that they cannot pick up after themselves, but I guess looking at the sides of the road in Harrison County I should not be surprised.

    When 13-year-old Madeline Sparks and her horse, Emmit, cross the finish line in her first trail-riding endurance competition in Tennessee on Saturday, Sept. 13, it will be more than a personal victory. It will also be in memory of her grandmother and an honor to others who are battling breast cancer in their lives.

  • Fillies win first set, lose match to Villa Madonna

    Coach Bill Faulkner noted before the season started that his scheduling was a little off when he scheduled Lexington Christian, Villa Madonna and Campbell County for three straight matches beginning with the Lady Eagles last Tuesday.  
    However, his young Fillies volleyball squad put a scare into the Blue Lightning of Villa Madonna Thursday when they rolled to a 25-20 win in the first set.  
    The Fillies did this though they did not serve particularly well during the set.  

  • Thorobreds drop home opener and Thursday road game to Cardinals

    The Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team dropped to 0-3-1 last week as they lost twice to the Cardinals.  
    Tuesday night’s home opener with the George Rogers Clark Cardinals started well as Logan Wiley’s goal with about 10 minutes played put the Thorobreds on top 1-nil.  
    George Rogers Clark, with some physical play, scored twice before the half for a 2-1 lead after the first 40 minutes.  
    It took only 49 seconds into the second half for Wiley to put his second goal into the net with an assist from Brock Jenkins.
