    On Saturday night in Covington, the Harrison County Thorobreds found out what it’s like to take on the best team in the state.

  • God allows wandering, but always knows how to get us back home

    For Christmas my husband bought me a GPS device for my car.

    I am notorious for my directional dyslexia, which I blame on my dad. When I was a kid he told me to get lost and, ever the obedient child, I’ve been doing so ever since.

    I don’t understand north. I know the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, but I couldn’t point it out to you. Orlando and Tampa are both south of where I live, but they feel northish to me.

    Our state’s budget crisis may soon result in a crisis in personal and community safety for Kentucky’s law-abiding citizens.

  • Now, more than ever, citizens need to be involved

    The new year is a time for reflection. I think that it is important to thank people who have contributed to making Cynthiana and Harrison County a better place to live. These are people or groups of people who selflessly contribute their time, energy, and yes, sometimes even money for the betterment of the community. I won’t mention names so that I don’t slight anyone, but you know who you are.
