  • Wrestling team wins 5, loses 6 in Super Duals

    In the Region 7 Super Duals, Harrison County had some outstanding individual efforts and results, but over all injuries and Murphy’s Law led to a not so pleasing team total. 

    In the 12-team duals hosted by Montgomery County, the Thorobreds were matched in two days against 10 of the 11 opponents. 

    Harrison County started with a good match against the host Indians as they defeated Montgomery County by a 57-27 score. This match had to be on or before Dec. 16. 

  • Meeting time isn’t conducive for citizens

    Since the middle of August, The Cynthiana Democrat has published four articles and five letters to the editor regarding the proposed zone change at the Business Park.

    By now, readers are aware that United Propane Gas asked for the zone change in the corner lot of the industrial park, which neighbors Connersville Pike.

    The proposed request asked that the lot be rezoned ‘heavy industrial’ to allow for the storage of propane gas.

  • Best books for 2009

    Yes, I realize the value of the internet and the information that is available at a click of a mouse, but I still prefer the book. Maybe it’s because we have pokey-slow-country-dial-up that reaching for a book proves faster and more efficient for me. Maybe it’s just that I like the tactile experience of a book.

  • The Christmas Story

    In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to his own town to register.

  • 'Like an old, true friend, Christmas will soon be visiting again’

    It’s before Thanksgiving, I know.

    I’m reluctant to even admit this, but I must confess... I have already started listening to Christmas music.

    Gasp.

    This weekend, while traveling on the Bluegrass Parkway to Bowling Green, Ky., I became extremely tired of driving.

    The Bluegrass Parkway has this effect on many. Stretching from Lexington to Elizabethtown, the journey is half of the three-hour trek I make many weekends to see my fiancé Andrew.

    Fillies runners up at Prestonsburg tourney

    The Harrison County Fillies played hard against Pulaski County last Wednesday, but came up on the short end of the 76-66 score. The Lady Maroons won the championship of the Prestonsburg Invitational Tourney with a 25 point fourth quarter against the exhausted Fillies.  

    The Fillies were playing their third game in two days as was Pulaski County and just simply ran out of gas in the last half.

  • Sending Christmas to Africa

    Instead of exchanging gifts with one another this year, the fourth graders at Southside Elementary are shipping their gifts to Africa.

    “The students decided they wanted to get gifts for the kids (in Malawi) instead of each other,” Southside teacher Judy Clevinger said last Wednesday afternoon.

    When deciding on a “different” Christmas exchange, Clevinger said the fourth grade teachers looked no further than Clevinger’s son, Jacob.

    A junior at Asbury College, Jacob spent over two months in Malawi, Africa, last summer.
