  • Saddle ‘N Spur Club takes on arena renovation project at 4-H grounds

    It’s been the stage for many of Harrison County’s beauties -- from newborns to teen queens, from Tennessee Walkers to champion barrel riders. And now, it’s getting a make-over.

    The horse arena at the 4-H fairgrounds on U.S. 27 South is a project of the Saddle ‘N Spur Club, led by Gary and Kelly Downs.

    Gary said club members and their parents have worked hard to get the old fence around the arena down and ready for the new look.

  • Breds one win from big dance

    On Tuesday night at St. Henry High School’s Paul Kramer Field, the Harrison County Thorobreds caught something contagious. No, it wasn’t the swine flu. It was hits, hits and more hits.

    The Harrison County offense erupted for nine runs on nine hits and sent 14 hitters to the plate in the first inning against Beechwood ace A.J. Smith, driving the Murray State signee from the game after only 40 pitches and after only two outs. Harrison County eventually pasted the Tigers in a five-inning affair, 14-2.

  • Pendleton County woman airlifted following Tuesday morning accident

    Amanda Herrmann of Pendleton County was injured Tuesday morning on her way to Falmouth from Cynthiana. According to Tpr. David Jones of the Kentucky State Police, Herrmann may have blacked out which caused her to run off the right side of the northbound lane of U.S. 27 North. Herrmann was taken to Harrison Memorial Hospital and later airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center. As of presstime Wednesday, she was listed in good condition. Her 11-year-old daughter sustained only minor injuries. Jones said the passenger was restrained while Herrmann was not wearing a seat belt.

  • Click it or ticket

    The Cynthiana Police Department is looking for seat belts... and issuing tickets when they don’t find one.

    “It’s a seat belt blitz to educate the public and get the percent of people not wearing a seat belt to wear them,” said Cynthiana Police Chief Ray Johnson.

    Through a $1,500 state grant, police officers have begun a two-week period dedicated to enforcing seat belt usage.

    “Anyone we see without a seat belt, we will pull over and cite,” Johnson said.
