  • Breds defeat alums 5-2 in soccer scrimmage Friday

    For the first time since 1999, the varsity Breds defeated the alums in the annual pre-season scrimmage. 

    Kyle Foster and Joe Thomas each scored two goals for the Breds and Taylor Bolin added one as the better conditioned Thorobreds out classed the veterans. 

  • ‘Harrison County’s baseball tradition is alive and well’

    To the editor:

    As I sit here on this Fourth of July weekend at River Road Park watching T-ball, I can’t keep from thinking this is the place where it all started. I’m talking about the players, our 2010 State Baseball Champions, our own Harrison County Thorobreds. I also reflect back to the time when the team was just three outs away from losing the region. There would have been no need for this article.

  • Ford’s life was a gift to others

    I don’t usually enjoy forwarded e-mails (unless they’re the really funny ones), but my mother recently sent me one with the title “well worth it.”

    Intrigued, I opened it.

    A YouTube video narrated by a Benedictine monk named Brother David Steindl-Rast, the message suggested that each day is something special.

    “You think this is just another day in your life?” the monk said. “It’s not just another day. It’s one day that is given to you. Today. It’s a gift.”

  • ART WALK 2010

    The Cynthiana Art Walk is itself, a piece of art. It began with an idea, infused with passion and many hard-working people. It happened because people believed it could and in turn, those people convinced business owners, musicians, corporations, local leaders, artists and visitors. Cynthiana residents are fortunate to have a downtown filled with law offices, dental practices, restaurants, retail shops, museum, theatre and gym. Sure, we need more, but we must remember to support what we have.
