    Teabeary’s Treasures is like an artist’s canvas. There’s always one more thing to add.

  • Dryden opens business after Webber’s fire

    By Ben Hyatt, News writer
    Local businessman Anthony Dryden said  it is customer service that separates his local business from corporately owned outfits.
    Not only is it one of the local sporting goods and pawn shops, it is a place where tales are told of huge deer, monstrous fish and of course current events.
    Dryden opened his dream sporting goods store in August  1996, after the Webber’s plant burned leaving him jobless.

  • Lusby makes a go of shoe store in Cynthiana’s changing climate

    Even with a powerhouse store next door, L.C. Lusby continues to have repeat customers enter the doors of his shoe store.
    To hear how Lusby came to own his shoe store would make anyone snicker from the tale he told.
    Lusby, originally from Owen County, Ky knew Floyd and Carol McDanell, who were the former owners of McDanell’s Shoes.
    A mere bike ride to the store by Lusby in 1996 took Lusby from customer of the store to owner.

  • ESPN-Home to LeBron and the Boston Red Sox

    Although this doesn’t go with the headline of my article, I must say this. Good-bye Jim Tressel.
    Before this is over, Ohio State will make Southern Cal look like Rose Hulman in the cheating category.
    Of course, Tressel’s former players and other Ohio State alums and apologists are saying what a great guy Tressel is and maybe that’s correct. But as far as the players go, if the coach doesn’t enforce the rules and lets you do whatever you want, then of course he’s a good guy.

  • Fillies fall in region play to Clark County to end season

    The Harrison County Fillies didn’t hit the ball hard often on Monday afternoon and when they did, it seemed to be right at a defender. The Fillies fell to George Rogers Clark, 4-0, in the 10th Region quarter finals.
    They managed only two hits and three base runners in the game and only threatened to score in the last inning.
