  • 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.  

  • Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results

    I think that the definition of insanity is repeating an action and expecting a different result or something to that effect.  
    This is not a political statement at all but one relating to sports.  
    For instance, how many batters who reach base by walking end up scoring a run?  
    It doesn’t happen every time but often enough that it might qualify as insanity.  
    It is more than likely ineptitude since the pitcher doesn’t usually walk someone on purpose.  

  • Illness, Lady Panthers defeat Fillies Saturday in Flemingsburg, 64-29

    Fleming County’s Lady Panthers were having an okay year as, after losing all five starters to graduation from last year, they had a 6-8 record so far in 2012-13.  
    They improved to 7-8 Saturday night when they were the beneficiaries of some Harrison County Fillies’ misfortune.
    The evening started out on a bad note when the Harrison County bus rolled into Flemingsburg at 4 p.m. for a scheduled triple header with the freshmen, junior varsity and varsity.  
    The gym was dark and no one was in sight.

    Five HCMS wrestlers qualify for regional
    Eighth grader Michael Mattox led four other Harrison County Middle School wrestlers into the region competition by taking first place in the middle school District 7 tournament Saturday.  
    Mattox took first in the 106 lb competition taking advantage of his varsity experience to bring home the first place medal.
