  • Park can feature old and new

    I’m a sucker for old things.

    I enjoy old cars, old furniture, old dishes and old buildings.

    In a photography class, I once had the assignment to photograph an older person.

    Please don’t be offended. It’s a term I use with much admiration.

    “You will find,” my professor said, “that because of age, (lines, wrinkles and all) an older subject will have more character than any other subject you will ever photograph.”

  • Trick or Treat is Oct. 31

    As evenings start getting cooler and the threat looms near for Daylight Savings Time to be abandoned, thoughts must also turn to the ghosts and ghouls and things that go bump in the night.

    Goblins who are 12 years old and under will be taking to the streets on Saturday, Oct. 31, 6-8 p.m. for the annual Halloween “witching (two) hours.”

  • Idol factory open for business

    Today I did not go to the outlet store next to the grocery store.

    That may not mean much to you, but to me it was a major big deal.

    Lately, I haven’t been able to stop at the market without checking out the outlet. Even if I park far away I’ll say, “I need to walk more,” and head over to see what’s new on the racks.

  • Soccer girls fall to Bourbon in region final

    The Harrison County Fillies soccer team had a throw in bounce the wrong way allowing Bourbon County to have a numbers advantage to score the only goal in the regional final Thursday at Bourbon County.   

    In a game where the Fillies executed the game plan almost flawlessly, the errant bounce spelled defeat. Coach Kim Jenkins remarked how well the Fillies played together as a team and deserved a better fate than they received. 

  • Motorists need to slow down

    To the editor:

    I’m writing in regards to what I consider to be an every day worsening problem - reckless, speeding and inattentive drivers on US 62 between Georgetown and Cynthiana. I set cruise control on my vehicle between 50 and 55 mph most all the time because I recognize with the smoother ride of most of today’s vehicles, it is so easy to accelerate beyond the limit. I am passed around curves, crests of hills, in the emergency lanes, as well as in straight stretches... as if I’m sitting still.
