The George Rogers Clark baseball team stretched its winning streak to seven games with a 7-3 triumph over Harrison County Thursday afternoon. The contest was originally scheduled to be played in Cynthiana, but was moved to Winchester Thursday because of field issues at Harrison County High School. The win evened Clark's record at 7-7, while the Thorobreds fell to 11-5 on the season. Clark got a solid outing from pitcher Logan McQuerry, who went the distance and got the win. McQuerry scattered eight hits in seven innings of work.

About two weeks ago, Catherine Cole of Nicholasville was given a piece of her father that she never knew existed, and that has given her a glimpse into a part of his life he never talked about. A diary he kept while in the Navy during World War II more than 60 years ago found its way to her. It was found in a pile of rubble at a demolition site, plucked from among the debris by John Banks, a recycling-center employee, Cole said. Banks thought it was a book and started to read it, she said.
