    The Harrison County Fillies traveled northward Wednesday to Scott High and came home with a hard-fought 2-nil win over the Lady Eagles.  
    The night was delayed only slightly by lightning.  
    The varsity game basically started on time without the junior varsity game being played due to the weather.  
    The varsity started play in the rain and the Fillies struggled at first to adjust to the speed the ball travels on the turf fields.

  • Rod Run heats up downtown Cynthiana every year; brings fun, money to town

    I know if I start naming names, someone will get left out. There’s also a huge chance that someone would be omitted by the mere fact that they worked behind the scenes and were not out front with a bull horn.
    I have covered, or at least been in town, for each of the four Rod Runs in Cynthiana. And each time I walk away with an all encompassing feeling of wow.
    It’s not that I’m so involved in classic cars, although there were a couple that I wouldn’t be embarrassed to drive away in ... just a couple.
