  • Harrison Co. Fillies look to seniors for leadership

    Second year Head Coach Jason Crisp is counting heavily on his four seniors to lead the Fillies as they strive to improve on last year’s 10-20 season. 

    “They have to be the ones to show the younger players how to score, defend and rebound,” he remarked. 

    The four are led by veteran point guard Lorainne Dennie, who Crisp said needs to be the leader on and off the floor. 

    “She has to score more yet look for assists and cut down on turnovers,” said Crisp.

  • City street needs repair

    To the editor:

    To the elected officials of Cynthiana - I am writing with a tongue in cheek request for help. I own my residence, which is on the west end of Battle Grove Avenue. You may not have noticed but we haven’t had the benefit of a nicely paved street for some years now here on Battle Grove. What with all the water and sewer leaks, not to mention the gas line leaks, a good part of our street has been made up of poorly applied cold patch and gravel for some time now.

  • Sunday afternoon accident sends two to the hospital

  • Nothing is normal about the night of fright

    People do crazy things on Halloween.

    For the most part, my childhood Halloween’s tend to blend together - a blur of witches’ costumes, candy and orange and green swirls.

    But there is one Halloween that continues to stand out from the rest.

    It was the Halloween that proved all things normal are disregarded on the night of fright.

  • Aldridge back at bat for the Democrat

    A former Cynthiana Democrat sports writer is making a return engagement.

    Mike Aldridge, 60, who covered Cynthiana and Harrison County sports activities during the early 1980s, will be picking up the duties of retiring correspondent Lee Kendall.

    Aldridge said he is anxious to be writing about Harrison County’s athletes again.

    He and Ray Sparks are hosts to a Saturday morning sports show on WCYN 1400 AM.

    Aldridge is also a Kentucky High School football official and a girls’ softball umpire.

  • Kentucky pays tribute to veterans

    Next Wednesday, Nov. 11, our nation will recognize the 90th anniversary of what was known for years as Armistice Day but what we now call Veterans Day.

    President Woodrow Wilson chose that date because, in 1918, it marked the formal end of World War I, the first major global conflict that, unfortunately, did not live up to one of its popular nicknames: The War to End All Wars.

    The decision to include all veterans, not just those who served in World War I, came in 1954, when Congress passed and President Eisenhower signed that intent into law.
