       The body of Sgt. Jeremy Russell Summers of the 2nd Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division will be laid to rest Friday, July 29, in Battle Grove Cemetery.

  • Plan for weekend full of art, entertainment in downtown Cynthiana

    The Cynthiana Arts Council promises to bring modern class and talent to downtown Cynthiana with 2011 Art Walk, July 29 and 30.
    Growing may be the term most fit to describe the now highly anticipated Art Walk. In just two years, the Art Walk has quickly gained reputation not only locally, but regionally as well.
    With Journey Stories, courtesy of the Smithsonian Institute currently going on in Cynthiana, the pairing of the Art Walk almost ensures for yet another successful weekend of interpretation, appreciation and showing of local and non-local talent.

  • Tuesday fire claims home on Gray’s Run

    A Tuesday afternoon fire totally wiped out the home of Lewis J. Mastin at 3611 Grays Run Road.

    McCarty said the county volunteers were assisted by the Cynthiana Fire Department.

  • Marsh’s ‘puttering’ keeps family pantries filled with vegetables

    Tucked into a lush green hillside in Buena Vista, away from the eyes of passersby,  is a gardener’s dream.
    One might say that Jack Marsh has a green thumb… and that would be an understatement.
    Jack and Ruby Marsh have created their Bobtown Road paradise with an understanding that Jack will take care of the outside and Ruby will handle all things interior. At least that’s what Jack says with a smile on his face.

  • State gives $94,000 nod to Safety Way repairs

    Cynthiana Mayor Steve Moses received official notification Tuesday that Safety Way will be repaired and the state will pick up the $94,000 bill.
    “It should be fixed in the next two to three weeks,” Moses said at Tuesday’s city commission meeting.
    Moses made his request to the state citing the use of Safety Way by detoured traffic from the new viaduct/Church Street project.
    In other business, the commission agreed to pursue an ordinance that would allow a car dealership in Northern Kentucky to conduct a tent sale in Cynthiana.

  • Reward offered for conviction in vehicle vandalism case

    Former Kentucky State Trooper Kenny Jones and his wife Wanda are offering a $2,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those involved in the July 13 vandalism of their silver Dodge truck on KY 3004.
    According to previous reports, the first report was that someone had “keyed” his truck with profanity. The next night, Jones called back to report that all four tires on the vehicle had been slashed.

  • Court OKs plans for BP gas station, store on US 27 North

    The Harrison County Fiscal Court voted unanimously to approve an ordinance that will allow for a new BP station to be built on US 27 North.
    The request, which was submitted by Scott McCauley to planning and zoning, would allow McCauley to eventually tear down the old Pine Villa building and replace it with a new BP station equipped with a food mart and gas service.

  • Thorobreds’ offense hopes to utilize backfield experience

    The Harrison County Thorobreds face a daunting schedule this season even more so with the addition of AAA state runner-up Belfry and must figure out a way to score more points.  
    One way is to improve the passing accuracy of returning starting quarterback Joe Korona.  
    “Joe’s pass completion percentage is a little misleading,” said third year Thorobreds coach Mark Carroll. “We had several dropped balls and ill run pass routes which led to incompletions that were no fault of Joe’s.”  

  • Get out your Hygrometer, it’s time for sports

    Everyone talks about the weather, but no one does anything about it, as has been said by many and I’m sure Will Rogers or another famous wit probably said it first, but isn’t it true?  
    The heat of this summer seems to be worse than some others and it has wreaked havoc upon the coaches of all of the fall sports.  
    Practices have become very difficult to hold without rescheduling, having practice later in the day or having it inside.
