    Fryman was a football star for the Harrison County Thorobreds in the early 2000s. He was strong and athletic and a team leader as a linebacker.

  • Viewpoint

    I’m going to have to give kudos to the city officials for their recent decision to use Bourbon County Jail inmates for work needed around town.
    The prisoners have to be supervised by a police officer or someone who has gone through a 3-hour training session at the jail.

    In our busy, over-loaded and booked lives it is hard for us as individuals to develop real close relationships, so we friend-up people on Facebook (some of whom we do not know), or follow someone on Twitter to gain friends.
    We live on our cell phones and often think these ways will fill the void in our lives.
    We want people to like us for who we are and to not get so close as to find out our weaknesses or failings or even those skeletons in our closets. We want these relationships on our terms with no other strings attached or we will drop them like a hot potato.
