  • Skateboarders need somewhere to go, says Cynthiana resident

    To the editor:

    This past spring, the Recreation Department Board saw fit to remove the skate park from its River Road location - accusing skaters of breaking rules like dress code, littering and foul language. Although the city ordered a new location be found, still no skate park can be found in Cynthiana. I see we got a new picnic/deck area built at the River Road Park. Maybe that frivolous project could have been delayed a while in order to provide a place for dozens of kids in this town to get the exercise they need.

  • Vacationing family serves as extras for Miley Cyrus movie

    When Lauren and Mackenzie Shepard head back to school next week, they’ll have quite a story to tell their classmates.

    While vacationing on Tybee Island, Ga., Lauren, 12, Mackenzie, 10, and their parents Tim and Melissa, acted as extras in Miley Cyrus’ new movie “The Last Song.”

    “We didn’t even know the movie was being filmed there,” Melissa said, adding that the family vacation had been planned almost a year ahead.

  • Breds drop opener to Montgomery County

    The Harrison County Thorobreds got their 2009 football campaign off to a rocky start last Friday night in Mt. Sterling as they frittered away a 26-14 lead and were defeated by host Montgomery County in the 62nd Annual Recreation Bowl, 27-26.

    Friday’s game had more twists and turns than KY 36 has between Cynthiana and Williamstown.

    First, the Thorobreds were dangerously close to being blown out in the first half.

    Montgomery County ran roughshod over the Breds in the first quarter, both offensively and defensively and led 14-0.
