  • Nova Classic
  • Not exactly a David vs. Goliath but pretty close

    Well, I made it through my first-ever strongman contest and it wasn’t a total bust... other than my head.
    Those who know me well, know that I have been working with a local talented strongman competitor.
    I met Rob McCann a few years ago when he held Harrison County’s first Kentucky’s Strongest Man competition at Lenono’s parking lot.
    I went to take pictures of the event and you know how the story goes, I was hooked on the idea of lifting really heavy things like the pros did.

  • Men, tongues, words and wounds

    In my (albeit feeble) defense, I had just come from undergoing a medical test done under sedation, which may or may not have loosened my tongue. Or maybe it was because I hadn’t eaten in 24 hours and hunger affected my brain.
    Whatever the reason, I said something that embarrassed my husband.
    We had stopped at a local restaurant for a burger. I ordered the thickest, beefiest, cheesiest burger on the menu, plus fries, and my husband ordered a veggie burger and a salad.

  • WOUNDED WARRIOR

    There are two telephone calls that a parent never wants to receive.
    A Harrison County couple say it has been their faith in God and a healthy prayer chain that has given them peace in the hours and days since receiving their call. Their son, David, was shot in Afghanistan, just seven weeks into a nine-month tour.
    The call came to John and Cheryl Chamberlin at 12:14 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 23.

  • Arson suspected in weekend hay fire

    Authorities suspect that arson is the cause of a weekend fire that claimed 120 rolls of hay on a White Oak Pike farm.
    According to the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department, a fire broke out on the property of Bill Gates which is about four miles from townaround 3 a.m., Sunday, Aug. 26.
    The sheriff’s report states that a “young man” came to the residence of Gates around 3 a.m., to alert him that several rolls of hay located near the road were on fire.
    The Harrison County Volunteer Fire Department was called to put the fire out.

  • City OKs tax rate increase; revenue to be same

    With very little discussion, the Cynthiana City Commission voted unanimously Tuesday to approve a 17.4 cent tax rate on every $100 of assessed real and personal property for property owners in the city.
    Last year’s rate was 17.1 cents on every $100 assessment.
    An example of the difference between the 2011 rate and the 2012 rate for city property owners is that if a home in Cynthiana was assessed at $100,000, the property owner paid $171 in 2011 and the owner will pay $174 on the $100,000 2012 assessment.

  • Harrison students better than average in ACT, graduation rate

    By Becky Barnes, Editor
    Much like Kentucky’s weather, if you don’t like where education is headed, just wait, it’ll change.
    For Harrison County, it has changed for the better, with HCHS students getting excited about their ACT scores and taking ownership in their results.
    Trent Dixon and Josh Godman are two HCHS seniors who know their ACT benchmarks and know what they need to do to score above those. If they don’t, they also know what that means.

  • Clarification

    In a previous article concerning the outbreak of bed bugs at Clifton Village  Apartments it was stated that the Housing Authority has had 25 cases of bed bugs since 2008.
    The 25 cases of bed bugs include all properties under the care of the Cynthiana Housing Authority and not just Clifton Village Apartments.
