  • Family rebounds from Christmas nightmare

    The power of prayer is what one Cynthiana mother said pulled her family together during a nightmare that any mother would dread.
    Clayton Arnold is not the typical 8-year-old boy. He can often be found backing his daddy’s tow truck up to hook to a wrecked or illegally parked vehicle.
    Life was all fun and full of adventure for the Arnold family until Clayton started experiencing headaches and random spells of dizziness.

  • Two officers join Cynthiana Police Department

    The Cynthiana Police Department is welcoming two new recruits who have completed their academy training.
    Nathan Linville and Joe Daniels are on the road this week with officers in training.
    See this week’s Cynthiana Democrat for introductions of two young men who are returning to their hometowns.

  • Hello March!

    I’m usually somewhat sluggish about flipping the calendar.
    I don’t know why. Perhaps someone with a bunch of letters after his name would say it has something to do with not wanting to let go.
    However, it was with exuberance that my February pages hit the recycle bin and heralded in the lamb’s version of March.
    I have three calendars in my office; two are flipped and one is a rip-away.
    It was with great fanfare that I tore off February.
    My theory:
    This winter has been interminably long.

  • Teaching Certificate

    Kathleen Judy was born December of 1900 and attended Henry School on Judy Ridge Road in Harrison County. On Feb. 8, 1917 (at the age of 16) she took the teaching exam to receive her certificate. Judy taught at Henry School in Harrison County and earned approximately $30 a month. She married Ora Nicholas Marsh and had four sons, Charles, George and John Marsh, and the late Neal Marsh, all of Harrison County.

  • Frankfort Focus

    Each legislative session essentially has two distinct periods, with the first dedicated to the House and Senate setting their respective agendas and the second, much shorter one seeing where both sides can find common ground.
    It is too soon to say what ultimately will cross the finish line, but this week is when most of those decisions will be made.  It promises to be a busy time.
    As we look for consensus, there is hope in the House that we can do something this year to help both our youth and our senior citizens.

  • Lady Indians hold off Fillies, 65-54, in regional action

    The 2010-11 Fillies season ended Tuesday night as the Montgomery County Lady Indians defeated Harrison County 65-54 in the 10th Region Tournament.  
    The Fillies never led in the game, which had two ties in the first quarter, but it was far from being an easy night for the Lady Indians.  
    It was a night of runs as each team had scoring streaks that either kept the other team at bay or cut into a big lead to make a close game.

  • Heartbreak on the Hilltop, Wildcats 61, Breds 60

    Pendleton County led for one tenth of one second Friday night, but that was enough to defeat the Harrison County Thorobreds in the final game of the 38th District Tournament 61-60.  
    The Thorobreds dominated the game until the middle of the fourth quarter, leading by 20 points once in the final period before the inability to make free throws cost them the game.  
    Harrison County jumped out to a 5-0 lead on a Tyler Wagner basket and the first of Dillon Pulliam’s six three pointers.  

  • Not just hearing the word but doing the word

    If you ever want to see me panic, just call and say you’re coming over for a visit.
    On Sunday, a man my husband used to work with called to say he and his wife were in our area, about an hour away.
    He had asked, “Are you going to be home for a while?”
    That’s never a question I like to be asked unless it’s from the Publisher’s Clearing House people wanting my address so they can deliver a giant bazillion dollar check.
