  • Livestock Care Commission is best option for state agriculture

    To the editor:

    As a farmer in Harrison County, I take great pride in the way my livestock are cared for everyday. In fact, the proper care and welfare of livestock and poultry are essential to the production of food and fiber that we enjoy everyday. No segment of society has more concern for the well-being of poultry and livestock than the farmer, because the well-being of my livestock has a direct impact on whether or not I can make a living farming.

  • Coach’s book is a story about life

    To the editor:

    I urge everyone to read ‘Jock - a coach’s story.’ It’s not a book about basketball. It is a book about life - the good times, the rough times. It is about making mistakes, about doing the right thing. It’s about patience. It’s about impatience. It’s about happy times and it’s about sad times. It’s a book about one of the best friends I’ve ever had. Stuart Warner put it together beautifully. Do read it. It will touch your life.

  • Ag in the middle...

    Farming isn’t new to Harrison County.

    But when school began in August last year, so did a brand new agriculture program at Harrison County Middle School.

    HCMS is now one of only a handful of middle schools in the state to have a Future Farmers of America (FFA) chapter and agriculture classes.

    “It’s been very popular,” said HCMS principal Mike McIntire. “Students do better when they have some connection to the school beyond the regular school day... and this is just one activity that really wasn’t touched on before...”

  • Reaching out

    “The moment I heard ‘earthquake,’ I knew it was going to be bad,” Avi Bear said Tuesday afternoon at his bakery off Oddville Avenue.

    Having traveled to Haiti six years ago, for Avi, news of the Jan. 12 earthquake was personal.

    “When you go and work with the people, you become part of the family,” Avi said.

    Now, as Haiti works to recover, Avi is doing what he can in Cynthiana to help the hundreds of children at the Good Shepherd orphanage and schools in Carrefour, just six miles west of Port-au-Prince.

  • SNOW GOIN’

    One might think Harrison County is home to this year’s winter Olympics, with yet another winter storm dumping several more inches of snow early this week.

    County Judge-Executive Alex Barnett said he estimated that northern parts of the county had received 10 inches of snow by Tuesday.

    While Barnett said on Tuesday that county roads are now “passable,” Monday morning’s road conditions prompted him to issue a state of emergency for the county.

    “The roads at that time were just in horrific shape,” Barnett said.
