  • Summer Sports Camp

    Saturday night the third class of the Cynthiana- Harrison County Baseball Hall of Fame was honored at an induction ceremony at the Cynthiana Elks Lodge.  
    The ceremony was preceded by a pulled pork meal made in the Elks kitchen with the barbeque made by David Turner.  
    Approximately 150 people attended the event to honor the nine inductees.  
    After a welcome by the president of the Alumni Hall of Fame Committee, Jim Fuller, Buddy Renaker blessed the food and the meal was served.  

  • Why the NBA is hard for me to...

    I found myself listening and reading more about the NBA in the weeks before the draft than I really wanted to, but circumstances caused me to do it.  
    The circumstances were long drives in my car with a satellite radio and the Lexington Herald Leader.  
    ESPN radio was devoted almost solely to the draft in the past two weeks and I had to be in Ohio, Indiana and North Carolina. I was a captive audience.

    Former Harrison County, Ole Miss and Chicago White Sox star Chris Snopek managed his 14-and-under team to a national championship last week.  
    The son of Barbara and Don Snopek of Cynthiana, Chris managed the East Coast Prime Sox, who was the No. 3 seed going into the final four.
    The East Coast Prime won its semifinal game by a 9-0 count over the Banditos.

    Saturday morning at 8 a.m. will be the official start for the 51st annual Joe Mooney Invitational, which features outstanding golfers from the surrounding area.  
    Dorothy Mooney will be there Saturday morning to usher the tournament in with 90-plus golfers teeing off with staggered tee times through out the morning and early afternoon.  

  • Cardinals edge Yankees with...

    The younger Cardinals hit the ball with authority and the whole team played good defense as they eased by the Yankees in Monday night Cal Ripken play.  
    Both teams entered the fray with 4-7 records and needed the win to get back on track for the season.  
    The Yankees scored first with a run in the top of the first on three walks and a ground out to second.  

  • Many events and so little time

    I know that time is a common problem for many sporting events as well as families that have children.  
    The problem is trying to be two places at one time or doing two events at once.
    I mentioned this in passing last week when I wrote about the track awards luncheon.  
    The number of athletes attending this luncheon was reduced significantly by basketball events for both boys and girls, soccer and baseball contests all going on at the same time or on the road.
