  • Moses will work hard for town

    To the editor:

    I want to urge the citizens of Cynthiana to vote Steve Moses as your next mayor. I have been friends with Mr. Moses and his family since childhood and cannot think of a more dedicated and honest citizen to lead our town. I feel a strong leader is someone who is not afraid to roll their sleeves up and put in an honest day of hard work. Mr. Moses is no stranger to hard work. He worked for 27 years at the State Highway Department. He has the experience to manage our city streets.

  • Court says yes to funding for Berry Data Center

    The Harrison County Fiscal Court chose its annual meeting in Berry Tuesday to make another six-month financial commitment to the Berry Data Center.

    While the motion passed to pick up the $28,400 tab, three magistrates voted against the proposal.

    “A kid in Kelat should have the same opportunities as a kid in Berry,” said magistrate Bradley Copes prior to his “no” vote. “Education should be up to the school board; information should be the library. The fiscal court is responsible for maintaining the infrastructure of this county.”
