  • Way Back When

  • ‘Sometimes you just have to eat the stale doughnuts’

    I’m always the first one in the newsroom in the morning and there’s often leftover food from the night crew left out on the counter.

    Normally I toss it out because it’s usually uncovered, which means bugs and mice probably crawl over it and poop on it...

    Today a big white box sat on the counter, and because I’m a trained newsperson, I had to investigate. I mean, it’s my job and all.

  • Grieving is difficult for children

    A new school year has teachers hopeful that lessons have not been forgotten over the summer. Often a long break can bring even greater changes in family and emotional coping of a child by a death. Returning to school can be comparatively as stressful as an adult going back to work after only a few bereavement days; yet even more so for a child considering developmental factors.

  • Harrison County High School library receives Laura Bush Foundation grant

    A new year at the Harrison County High School library means the turning of several pages.

    “It’s great to see kids reading...” said HCHS library media specialist Stacy Cawley. “We just want to get books in our students’ hands.”

    As the recipient of several new grants, Cawley said it will be easier to supply the library and its students with books.

    “We saw that our collection was getting outdated,” Cawley said.

    Cawley said she researched library grants and applied.

  • 'Taste' draws large crowd to downtown Cynthiana

    The downtown streets of Cynthiana were bustling Saturday morning and afternoon during the ‘Taste of Harrison County.’

    Sponsored by the Cynthiana Lions Club, the day’s festivities included entertainment, food, and booths around the courthouse lawn.

    “We were really pleased with Saturday’s turn out,” said coordinator Trish Jenkins. “It’s always great to see people having fun right here in Cynthiana, while also supporting local businesses, restaurants, organizations and vendors.”

  • HCHS runners improve at AJ Special Cross Country meet

    The Harrison County cross country teams traveled to Asbury College for the AJ Special last Thursday, with both teams coming away with improved performances.

    “It was a big, tough invitational, but we ran very well,” said HCHS coach Danny Simpson. “I had challenged our athletes to improve their times from the Pendleton County Meet. They did that and more with most of our runners improving 2-3 minutes over their previous meet.”

  • Get a 'Taste of Harrison County' this weekend

    The day’s events will kick off with the Born To Run 5K Run/Walk at 8 a.m.
