  • Fillies advance in Regional

    The Harrison County Fillies softball team took care of business on Monday afternoon, weathered a rain delay, and defeated St. Patrick in the first round of the eight-team 10th Region Tournament at Montgomery County High School.

    Harrison County got another good pitching performance, this time from Ashley Coppage, who tossed a one-hit shutout with the Fillies winning 8-0.

    Coppage allowed only a second inning single to Bracken County’s Morgan Wells. She retired the Polar Bears in order in five of the seven innings.

  • Food, light and ventilation are needed for hens and Christians

    Several years ago I wrote a story for the newspaper about two local sisters who raise chickens and sell the eggs.

    As part of my, um, research, I ate some fresh-out-of-the-chicken eggs, sunny-side up, if I recall. That’s the way I like my eggs, but I also like them scrambled with onions and artichoke hearts, or maybe mushrooms.

    I’m so glad eggs are no longer on the Evil Foods list (and if they still are, please don’t tell me). I love eggs!

  • Take soft wood cuttings to propagate plants

    The most common form of plant propagation is digging and dividing which is best done in early spring before new growth or in the fall before plants go dormant.  Digging and dividing is great for herbaceous plants but those plants that are considered woody ornamentals do not divide as easily with a spade. In this case we can look to the technique of rooting out softwood cuttings from the mother plant.

  • Commission to name new mayor

    The time clock has begun on the city commission’s mission to appoint a new mayor.

    While City Attorney John Lair said Kentucky law isn’t exactly clear on the issue of the resignation and appointment of a mayor, Lair said the commission has 30 days to appoint a new mayor.

    That 30-day period, by Kentucky statute, begins at the commission’s next regular or special meeting after the resignation or official vacancy of the mayor position.

  • Exchange student welcomes lifestyle differences

    One 16-year-old girl considers herself very lucky to be in Cynthiana.

    When Anya Koltsova applied for American Scandinavian Student Exchange Program’s (ASSE) FLAGS scholarship to study abroad, she was one of 400 applicants.

    “Only five got a chance to go,” Anya said. “I was pretty lucky.”

    An exchange student from Vladivostok, Russia (located on the eastern edge of Russia), Anya said she has wanted to travel since she was a young girl.

  • Breds, Fillies compete at AA State meet last week

    The Harrison County Thorobreds and Fillies track teams continued a trend that their coaches have seen all season… Lots of good performances, but few great performances. Neither team was able to score a point at the Class AA State Track and Field Championships at the University of Louisville on Friday.

    The Thorobreds had eight athletes advance to the state meet and competed in eight events, while the Fillies had four competitors in four events.
