  • Cursed, blessed law

    When my youngest daughter first moved away from home and I realized I could not control her every action (not that I ever could, but I deluded myself into thinking I could when she lived with me), I had a brilliant idea.
    She was home for a visit and when I brought her to the airport I said, “Let me give you a list of everything I think you should and shouldn’t do and then you can just do everything on the list and we’ll both live happily ever after, especially me.”

  • Make it important to be involved in your government

    A new year has begun and one question we should all ask ourselves is... Are we going to help change anything for the better?
    I have been working for The Cynthiana Democrat for over two years now.
    During the first months of my employment, I took on the task of following the Harrison County Fiscal Court meetings.
    A major observation that I feel that I am more than qualified in making is the lack of community interest in what goes on in the meetings twice a month.

  • Thorobreds use solid second half to defeat Augusta

    BThe game was billed as a battle of the superior team versus the best guard in the area.  
    The best guard had a lot of trouble showing his stuff but the superior team used good guard play of their own to rally from a halftime deficit to win the game.  
    The Augusta Panthers brought a sparkling 12-4 record onto the Hilltop Friday and, instead of being a one man show, played good team ball as they battled the Harrison County Thorobreds to a close 63-60 win for the home standing Breds.
