    Soccer Breds lose
    at Franklin County Tuesday
    The Harrison County Soccer Thorobreds dominated the second half Tuesday night at Franklin County but could not score in a 1-0 loss to the Flyers.  
    The Flyers (6-3) scored in the first half near the midway point when an unmarked man scored from about 10 feet out from a wing pass.  
    The Breds played a decent first half with the one miscue but that was enough for the Franklin County win.

  • Activity-filled months ahead for Harrison County

    Karey Mattox Riddell has taken over The Main Street Program with the resignation of Emily Ammerman.
    And Tomi Jean Dailey Clifford officially started as the Cynthiana-Harrison County Chamber of Commerce executive director on Monday. I say “officially” because she hit the ground running even before her first day in the office.

    For our farmers, the harvest season is where months of hard work and hopefully good luck with the weather pays off.   While significant rainfall earlier in the year made it difficult at times, there are encouraging signs that our crops are largely following their traditional trends.
