    The Harrison County Thorobreds visited Frederick Douglass High School for the first time in school history Friday and came away with a hair-raising 57-55 win as a last second three-point shot was too late for the Broncos.  The Breds improved to 6-8 with the win while Frederick Douglass fell to 7-7. 
    Harrison County took an early lead as the Broncos were as cold as the winter weather making only four of 20 shots from the field in the first half.

    The Harrison County wrestling team had some clutch wrestling matches during the past week with the biggest accomplishments coming when things looked really bleak.

  • Candidate endorsements for the May 22 primary

    As the 2018 election draws near candidates will begin lining up their followers to write endorsement letters to the newspaper.
    We welcome those local letters. Local being the operative word here.
    We won’t accept letters of mass mailings. With e-mail so prevalent, it’s tougher to determine “mass mailings.” However, if someone sends a letter from Indianapolis endorsing one of our local hopefuls, it’s pretty obvious that it’s from a mailing list.

  • Viewpoint

    Hats off to all the firefighters and other first responders that were able to contain Sunday’s downtown fire to just one building.
    As close as most buildings are to one another in the downtown area, it is amazing that the huge blaze that ultimately destroyed the two-story building owned by Hoss and Paula Wilson, didn’t spread.
    Another talking-point that the fire might have brought up, are the unsightly, and even dangerous, power-lines/telephone-lines that line the streets throughout Cynthiana.
