    Holiday gift-giving knows no borders with Operation Christmas Child.
    The organization, under the Samaritan’s Purse, has been bringing gifts to children around the world for more than 20 years, and Harrison Countians have been joining in most of those years.
    “It’s an awesome way to give kids around the world stuff they normally never get,” organizer Dawn Arnold said.
    Arnold said the effort collects shoe boxes filled with items for kids.

  • * Log Cabin, Nov. 12, 1915 -- “Good suggestion - It has been suggested that the different lodges of Cynthiana unite in the purchase of the Reister lot on Walnut Street now occupied by Jas. McMurtry Jr. as a livery stable, and erect a four story building for their own use for lodge purposes and including an auditorium for public meetings, dances, etc. It is believed that a movement of this kind would prove popular. The lot which will be sold on the 20th is a very desirable one and no doubt the bidding will be spirited.”
