  • Remembering those who payed the most during WWII

    The Harrison County courthouse lawn is dotted with monuments reminding us of the soldiers who have fought and died for our freedoms.
    Words like valor, bravery, courage, true grit and heroism are used to describe their service. They seem like such small words for the huge sacrifice they and their families made for the rest of us.
    This year’s Veterans’ Day program at Battle Grove Cemetery honors the men from Harrison County who died during World War II. There are 48 of them.

  • Community getting in gear for seasons

    Since writing for the paper, every other week I sit in front of my computer pondering the events that have taken place recently and try to come up with a column.
    However, there has been so much that has gone on and will be going on that I am finding it too difficult to narrow my column down to just one story idea.
    So, I thought a general overview of ideas may be the best avenue for this week’s column.
    First of all, 94.5 FM has broken the ice. Yes, that’s right, Christmas carols are on the air for another month and a half.

  • Keep money in Cynthiana

    The Cynthiana Chamber of Commerce will be launching a local campaign on Nov. 26, to encourage citizens to shop locally.
    Businesses come and businesses go in a small community like Cynthiana.
    With economical times being as they are, small community businesses are finding it harder and harder to stay afloat and keep their doors open.
    Now that Christmas is just around the corner, small businesses will be looking to keep local money from finding its way outside the city limits.

  • Sacraments for sinners

    Last week my friend Mike got baptized.
    As the only adult being baptized, he was upstaged by some cute little kids and a baby, but he still shined.
    We baptize babies and grownups at my church because we believe baptism is not so much us declaring our commitment to follow Jesus, but it’s our declaration that we’re in desperate need of his cleansing.
    It’s one of two sacraments we celebrate, the other one being communion.

  • Thorobreds end season with 59-6 playoff loss at Ashland Friday

    If one of your buses breaks down on the way to the game that is probably not a omen that better things are in store.  
    That was the case Friday night for the Harrison County Thorobreds football team.  One of the three buses broke down around Morehead causing the team to have to pile into the two remaining buses along with all of the equipment and finish the 80 or so miles to Ashland.
