  • The only way to make things better is to get involved

    I’m getting just a little bored with of all the Cynthiana-trashing I see and hear.
    Social media is the worse.
    People who choose to contribute nothing to Cynthiana and Harrison County continue to bad mouth their hometown.
    There are some great things happening in this community.
    If the loud-mouthed minority want more to do, want to see less drugs and thugs and want Cynthiana to return to its glory days, then they need to get involved.
    Nothing can be gained by sitting on the sideline, grumbling and criticizing.

  • Some Mother’s Day memories

    I am writing this on Mother’s Day, which I believe to be the most important holiday of the year next to Christmas.  
    Mothers are the strength of most families that I know about and that was certainly the case in mine.  I will not write about Patti because she told me not to but most of you know where the strength and moral fiber come from in our family.
    I have two brothers and a sister and both of my parents worked after my sister, who is seven years younger than my older brother, was about four years old.

    Harrison County’s baseball Thorobreds’ hitting problems continued Monday evening as they traveled to Mt. Sterling to face region rival Montgomery County.  
    Senior Gus Garrison pitched another masterpiece allowing two hits in seven innings. However, the Indians scored in the bottom of the eighth off C.J. Claypool for the win.  
    Claypool walked the lead off batter in the eighth but catcher Luke Slucher threw him out trying to steal.
