    Growing up, Darrin Hawkins had no real idea what he wanted to have as a vocation when he was an adult.
    He did know what he didn’t want to do.
    “My whole family had been in the military, and I knew I did not want to do that,” he said.
    After graduating from Harrison County High School in 1988, he still didn’t know what he really wanted to do.

    A slew of bogus $100 bills have slipped into the area.
    Sgt. Nathan Linville of the Cynthiana Police Department said 18 of the fake bills were found on Riggs Avenue.

  • What’s in a title?

    “What’s in a name”? Shakespeare once asked. “Would a rose by another name smell as sweet . . .”
    We can ask the same question about the book title of one of our local authors, Marilynn Bell. If you remember Marilynn once surprised herself, but not the judges, when she won the Lane Award for the Most Outstanding Entry in the college writing contest.

  • Dear local governments, thanks for your quick response

    From the standpoint of the newly approved needle exchange program being a health issue rather than a drug issue, I applaud the local governing bodies for their forward thinking.
    In my experience covering government meetings, I must say that I was surprised by the Cynthiana City Commission’s and Harrison County Fiscal Court’s consent to back the program. I, apparently unfairly, expected the city and county leaders to drag their collective feet.
