  • Fillies fall to LCA Thursday, Bishop Brossart on Tuesday

    The Harrison County Volleyball team keeps coming close, but was unable in the last two matches to pull out a win. 

    On Thursday, the Lexington Christian Lady Eagles visited the Hilltop and saw the Fillies take a hard-fought first set 27-25 to take a 1-0 lead in match play. However, the visiting Eagles came back for a 20-25 win in the second set to force the third.

  • Rediscovering church

    Lately I’ve been fascinated by stories of people who grew up in church and now have abandoned the denominations of their youth, and sometimes church altogether.

    In a very funny memoir, “Mennonite in a Little Black Dress,” Rhoda Janzen writes about having to wear frumpy skirts, granny panties and doilies on her head and eating lots of potatoes.

    handle Grant County

     

    In a rare Saturday morning game, the Harrison County freshman footballers defeated Grant County’s rookie Braves by a 16-6 margin at Ingles Field.  

     

    A pair of touchdown runs by DeShon Talbott and an extra point run by quarterback Zach Royce put the points on the board for Harrison County, which had a shutout until less than a minute left in the game when an ill-advised pass was picked off and ran back 60 yards by the Braves for their only points.

  • ELECTION 2010

    It won’t be long before we’ll be back in a voting booth this November.

    Several state, county and city positions will be on this year’s ballot, including seats for our state senator, state representative, county judge-executive, magistrates, mayor and city commission.

    To say it’s an important election would be an understatement.

    And so, here at The Cynthiana Democrat, we want your help.

    In local elections such as the upcoming one this fall, no one knows the candidates better than those of us who live, work and play beside them.

  • Crabgrass’s history reveals uses

    I heard someone lamenting their crabgrass the other day; they were convinced that this was the worst year ever.  Maybe so, but usually by this time crabgrass rears its ugly head and begins to creep through our fescue lawns, sneak into our cultivated beds and, when we’re not looking, reseed its self to ensure the continuation of the species.

    Sounds a bit sinister for a grass, I suppose, but it sure is difficult to control.
