    * Cynthiana Democrat, July 29, 1937 - The Rohs has a long record of improving its equipment and service to patrons, the latest being air conditioning. It gives the patrons unparalleled comfort on the hottest day and changes air constantly so there is always a fresh clean odor, no matter how packed the house may be. The air conditioner was first used last week and has since been in operation. The process used is washed air, the water being drawn from an artesian well, 173 feet deep, the water being about 55 degrees.

  • Eighth grade Colts to continue learning process

    Eight grade Colt football coaches Jim Carr and Mark Jenkins are in their second year of coaching together with the soon-to-be Thorobreds. 

    “Our job is to prepare the young men to play high school football with a focus on technique and fundamentals,” said Coach Carr. “We will be doing the same things as the varsity Thorobreds with the offense and defense.” 

    The eighth graders are in their second week of practice with a three-day mini camp under their belt already.

  • ‘Harrison County’s baseball tradition is alive and well’

    To the editor:

    As I sit here on this Fourth of July weekend at River Road Park watching T-ball, I can’t keep from thinking this is the place where it all started. I’m talking about the players, our 2010 State Baseball Champions, our own Harrison County Thorobreds. I also reflect back to the time when the team was just three outs away from losing the region. There would have been no need for this article.

  • Ford’s life was a gift to others

    I don’t usually enjoy forwarded e-mails (unless they’re the really funny ones), but my mother recently sent me one with the title “well worth it.”

    Intrigued, I opened it.

    A YouTube video narrated by a Benedictine monk named Brother David Steindl-Rast, the message suggested that each day is something special.

    “You think this is just another day in your life?” the monk said. “It’s not just another day. It’s one day that is given to you. Today. It’s a gift.”

  • ART WALK 2010

    The Cynthiana Art Walk is itself, a piece of art. It began with an idea, infused with passion and many hard-working people. It happened because people believed it could and in turn, those people convinced business owners, musicians, corporations, local leaders, artists and visitors. Cynthiana residents are fortunate to have a downtown filled with law offices, dental practices, restaurants, retail shops, museum, theatre and gym. Sure, we need more, but we must remember to support what we have.
