    The Harrison County Middle School Soccer Fillies won a tough 1-0 match Thursday in Frankfort and then swamped Grant County, Monday on the Hilltop, 10-0. 
    Thursday the Fillies were playing without two key players, Kylie Hudgins and goalkeeper Lily Winkle.  The defensive back line of Payton Slade, Emma Renaker, Olivia Hatterick and Kyla Soard kept the Elkhorn squad at bay.

  • Kentucky Afield Outdoors: Spring...

    The landscape awakens almost spontaneously from its winter slumber. Winter flocks break up into smaller groups. Innumerable turkey calls and lifelike decoys reappear at sporting goods retailers.
    Turkey hunters interpret these occurrences as signs that it will not be long before they are easing into their spots before dawn, filled with anticipation.

  • It is the time of the year

    This is a great time of the year if you are a particular fan of not knowing what shoe is dropping next.  The NCAA tournament had several teams that most people expected to reach the Sweet 16 actually get there.  
    Duke, Villanova, Kansas, Purdue, Gonzaga, West Virginia, and yes, Kentucky I expected to be there.  I also had Texas Tech, Michigan, and a few others making it.

  • Something new and the same old...

    J.D. Kendall, son of Larry and Debbie Kendall, won the Elks Hoop Shoot Region last Saturday in Paris, Tennessee.  All J.D. had to do to win this is make 25 of 25 free throws. He defeated shooters from Tennessee, Missouri and Arkansas to win the competition.  
    Can you imagine the tension and pressure on a young man when shooting free throws in front of a gym full of people, some he knows most he doesn’t, in a gym six hours from his home?
