  • Breds win two of three games in Gatlinburg tournament

    Winning two of three games is not a bad week before Christmas, but Coach Mike Reitz was not pleased.  
    “We had a 14-point lead against Heritage with seven minutes to play and lost the game,” lamented the veteran coach. “They hit 12 threes for the game and six in the last quarter.”  
    The Thorobreds perimeter defense failed to get a hand in the face of seniors Cody Wagner and Corey Stroub who combined for the six treys in the final quarter to lead the Maryville Heritage team to a 77-72 win over the Thorobreds.  

  • New Year’s wishes for 2012

    I want to give a Top 10 list much like the one that is given on late night television by one of the other famous Hoosiers.  My list will consist of things I would like to happen for me personally as well as in local sports.  
    I am going to leave off everyone being healthy and the like because that goes without saying.  
    10. For one year, everyone in the United States thinking about what is best for the country and not what is best them personally.  

  • Fillies drop games to Tates Creek and Henry Clay in Fayette tournament

    Coach Kim Furnish was sure that the Fayette Tournament was good for her team.  
    “Mariah Nichols’ injury was not good at all, but we learned quite a lot about the rest of the team in this tournament,” said the first-year coach. “We played two Lexington schools with largely an eighth grader, two freshmen, a sophomore and two seniors and improved each day.”  
    Nichols suffered her second concussion of the year on Monday afternoon against Boyle County and will be sidelined until mid-January more than likely.

  • A Legislative Perspective

    FRANKFORT – It may be quiet in the halls of the Capitol as 2011 draws to a close, but that is set to change early next week, when the General Assembly returns to kick off the 2012 Regular Session.
    Even-year meetings are always a busy time because of the budget, but another major task awaits us as well beginning January 3rd: redistricting.

  • 2011 was prosperous; looking forward to 2012

    I trust that everyone had a Merry Christmas as we look forward to a prosperous New Year.
    What does that mean? We all get those greeting cards that wish us well, but prosperous?
    Looking back on 2011, I have to think of some of what I would consider prosperous for Cynthiana and Harrison County.
    For instance, 2011 was the beginning of construction on the Cynthiana by-pass. It’s a state-funded project that is bringing millions of dollars to the area.

  • Museum Musings

    * Cynthiana Democrat, April 12, 1917 - “Snowy Easter Sunday (April 8) Easter Sunday opened with a cold rain which turned to snow before noon and continued until early evening. That night the ground froze, and on Monday the pavements were slick with a thin coating of ice. All thought of Easter finery went by the board and the few people who ventured out went about in winter garments, shivering and miserable.”
