  • Honoring the greats

    Sunday night I was sitting in a hotel room in Berlin, Ohio, watching ESPN.  
    The ceremony from Yankee Stadium retiring Derek Jeter’s number two jersey was on before the game between the Yankees and Houston. Ironically, it was only the day before that the Harrison County Thorobreds baseball program honored three former players in the “Fence of Fame” ceremony.  
    Both ceremonies started me to think again about honoring people who have meant a great deal to Harrison County in both education and sports.

  • Viewpoint

    Next weekend marks the unofficial start of summer.
    School will be out and students will have a much-abbreviated summer compared to that of my youth.
    Right about now, working parents are scrambling to find summer child care. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends are on speed dial.
    We can expect longer lunch lines at the fast-food chains.
    There will be more daytime traffic in Cynthiana.
    In just a few short weeks, band students will be pounding the pavement on the Hilltop, preparing their marching show for this coming season.
