  • Take time to do your part

    By Ashley Workman, LVC Perspectives
    Citizens of Cynthiana, do you ever wonder what people travelling through Harrison County think about the condition of our roadways?  
    We want them to think this is one of the greatest places to live.  
    One step toward making this a reality can be easily accomplished if we work together to make our roadways litter free. As residents, we should strive to make our city as beautiful as possible.  
    Are you willing to do your part?

  • Lessons from a little black dress

    A few months ago I bought an *LBD, a “little black dress.”
    All good fashionistas know that every woman needs at least one LBD in her closet, because you never know when a museum opening or semi-formal awards banquet will spontaneously break out.
    I bought it at a thrift store for only $35, but that’s not the point, neither is the fact that I will most likely never wear it.

  • Baseball Breds finish at 18-9 with three games before district

    The defending state champion Harrison County Thorobreds begin defense of their state championship this week after completing the regular season with an 18-9 record.
    Last week the Breds faced Campbell County on Thursday on the Hilltop and defeated the Camels by an 8-4 score.
    After starting pitcher Jordan Martin set Campbell County down in order in the top of the first, the Thorobreds’ Johnson Garrison hit a one-out home run in the bottom of the inning to give the Breds a 1-0 lead.

  • The Monsoon Season?

    Wet weather has farmers scratching their heads as they plan their next move.
    It’s beautiful today. The high is near 88 degrees with low humidity and a slight breeze flowing out of the southwest, but what about tomorrow?
    A wet, windy and uncharacteristic cold April and May have caused almost all farmers in Harrison County to delay planting, mowing and farming in general.

  • Fillies win fifth straight district title

    The Harrison County Fillies won the 38th district title Tuesday evening by defeating the Nicholas County Lady Jackets 8-1 on Shirley Field. Both teams will advance to the 10th Region tournament next Monday at Pendleton County.  
    The Fillies victory was much more difficult than the score indicates as the game was scoreless until the Fillies scored an unearned run in the bottom of the third when Tracey Hicks reached first with two outs on an error by the shortstop and Ashley Coppage drove her in with a single.  

  • Fillies, Breds finish 5th in track regional

    Both the girls’ and boys’ track squads finished fifth in the tough Region 4 Track Regional held at the Athletic Complex Saturday.
    Four girls and 13 boys qualified to compete in the Class 2A state meet to be held this Thursday in Louisville.
    The first two finishers in each event automatically qualify for state and the rest qualify based on the top times compared to all regions in their particular class.

  • Has baseball’s interleague play worn out its welcome?

    This week was the first round of play when the American League and National League teams play against each other.
    It seems like that there has been more chatter from managers and sportscasters in this year than before about the unfair aspects of the policy.
    Jim Leyland of the Tigers and Dusty Baker noted that they would prefer that the play between the leagues not be continued due to the difference in the leagues and the relative strength of the opposition each team is scheduled to play.

  • Fillies close out season with road games and round robin at home

    The Harrison County Fillies finished the season Saturday working to get ready for the district tournament by hosting a round robin tournament Saturday at Shirley Field.
    During the week before that, the Fillies hosted region rival Bourbon County and went on the road to Lexington to face the Lady Knights of Lexington Catholic.
