  • Community garden scheduled for full bloom this summer

    Tomatoes, squash, zucchini, spinach, lettuce, carrots, strawberries, cantaloupe, lima beans and green beans - Josie Daily grew them all in her garden last year.

    “I like gardening,” Daily said Monday morning. “I like being outside.”

    Last summer was Daily’s first garden and she said she soon learned the benefits of home-grown produce.

    “It’s rewarding and it saves you money,” she said.

    Living in town, Daily used an empty 25-foot-long row in the landscaping around her house for her large variety of produce.

  • BLACK HISTORY

    Born and raised in Cynthiana, Lois Gross wasn’t always able to enjoy her hometown’s hot spots.

    At Biancke’s, a line on the floor told Gross where to stop when ordering a Big Joe hamburger.

    A backside stairwell led Gross to the balcony at Rohs Opera House where she would watch the newest movies with friends and family.

    But at ‘Dixie,’ the teenage hangout on Walnut Street, Gross couldn’t even enter the front doors.

  • Dear Winter

    Dear Winter,

    Two words for you. Go away.

    Your biting winds, lingering snow and gripping ice have become annoying. They are no longer fun. One could daresay, they are a nuisance.

    Road crews are tired, students are bored of snow days and stores are all out of shovels.

    It may have been pretty when you covered Harrison County in a blanket of white the first time, but now the blankets of white seem  heavier (smothering, really)... and they soon turn to black when motorists are finally able to return to the roads.

  • McKee seeks re-election as House representative

  • What makes a good politician?

    Members of Congress play a central role in our lives. They shape our health-care system, make crucial decisions about the U.S. economy, and represent the hopes and interests of every American in Washington. Given this fact, I’m always surprised that relatively little attention is focused on examining closely whether someone serving in or running for Congress has the personal attributes it takes to be an effective member of the institution. If someone’s behavior is shady or unsavory, that will make the news.
