Two sixth-graders from Harrison Junior School recently pitted police officers against firefighters to raise $2,000 for a Harrison area family and to bring awareness about ALS to the community.

The marching band from Harrison High School placed 73 out of 100 bands that competed at a grand national competition in Indianapolis Saturday, Nov. 11, after the Wildcats had not performed at the national level in several years.

Music teacher Brian Egan said he is proud of how well his students performed and where they placed.

As you are driving on U.S. 52 heading north, out of town, you will pass some local Harrison businesses, a used car lot or two, a bar and grill, and others, all on the Indiana side, close to the Whitewater River.

This would be Tom Kendrick’s kingdom, if in fact he saw himself as a king. At the least, it could be termed his “magnus opus.”

Rather, he is like any other golfer – dropping a golf ball on the putting green, lining up his shot and stroking it toward a hole about 25 yards away. He does this a few times until he greets his guest.
