  • Historic Biancke’s will no doubt rebound

    Like most everyone else in Cynthiana, when the news circulated that our beloved Biancke’s Restaurant was on fire, I was deeply saddened.
    I was out of town and unable to see for myself what was going on. However, initial reports were that it would be a total loss.
    When Thursday dawned, however, the future looked much brighter for Mary Todd and the Biancke’s crew.
    By all accounts, Biancke’s front door was like a revolving door of volunteers helping to clean up a mess left by fire, smoke and water.
    It could have been much worse.

  • Baseball Hall of Fame hosts first awards banquet

    This was reminiscence of Cynthiana High School and Harrison County High School from before 1919 to the present, with a crowd of more than 100 family, friends and supporters in attendance.
