    Cynthiana will be adding two new police officers to the roster this spring.

    Nathan Linville, 22, will graduate on April 22. The following month on May 20, Joe Daniel will walk across the stage.

  • Commission gives nod to support for Healthy Communities grant

    The Cynthiana City Commission agreed Tuesday to support a grant application for a fitness center at Flat Run Veterans’ Park.
    Mayor Steve Moses said this is the same grant that the city and county applied for with the Wedco Health District last year that was denied.
    The Kentucky Health Futures Initiative grant for $250,000 has a $250,000 match. Moses said the city agrees to put up $100,000 of that.
    Commissioner Jack Keith asked where the proposed center would be built and if it would be on city/county property.

  • More info needed, says fiscal court

    The Healthy Communities Grant Project still has the fiscal court running in circles.
    A representative for the Healthy Communities Grant Project was present at the Feb. 8 fiscal court meeting to ensure that the county was still willing to match the $250,000 grant that would help pay for the construction of a health facility.
    The county, with the previous court members, voted to help match the grant by donating $125,000 toward building the walls of the facility. The current court will stand by that decision.

  • Breds fall to Cardinals in regional battle, 63-53

    On Jan. 19, George Rogers Clark’s cardinals rolled into Cynthiana and ripped the Thorobreds by a 73-55 margin in a game that wasn’t as close as the score indicated.  
    Friday’s regional battle was expected by many, including the Cardinal fans, to be more of the same.  
    The lay-down-and-die message never made it to the Thorobreds or the coaching staff at Harrison County though and the Thorobreds gave the state’s third rated team all they wanted and more in the 63 -53 tussle at the Mason County High School Field House.

  • What to do with scorers and the media

    The issue of where the score keeper and media people should sit came to a head Thursday night during the regional battle between Pendleton County and Montgomery County.  
    When Omar Prewitt was brought back into the game 40 seconds after he had been disqualified for his fifth foul, there was never a better example of how important it is to have communication between the official scorer and the visiting scorers.
