  • City Hall renovation project completed

    By Ben Hyatt, News writer
    “Every project needs a dreamer, a planner and a doer.”
    Those very words may be etched in stone once a Cynthiana landmark is dedicated, due to all the hard work Cynthiana Commissioner Billy Grayson continues to do for the community.
    The motto has been the backbone of nearly every formal and non-formal conversation Grayson has given while serving as commissioner of Cynthiana.
    Grayson once again recited what is growing as his go-to motto during the dedication of the newly renovated City Hall Gym Friday, Nov. 30.

  • Breds lose foul fest to Scott Eagles, 83-79

    In a ball game that saw 59 fouls called, five players disqualified with fouls and 68 free throws, the Scott High Eagles improved their season record to 3-2 as they edged Harrison County 83-79 on the Hilltop Tuesday night.  
    It was the first loss in three games for Harrison County who, according to Coach Larry Kendall, didn’t adjust to how the game was being called and were not able to get a flow going for the biggest part of the night.  

  • Bourbon County runs past determined Fillies 60-36

    “Unlike against Calvary Christian, we fought hard all night tonight and never gave up,” praised Coach Kim Furnish after the Fillies’ 60-36 loss to the Bourbon County Lady Colonels Monday night.  “We made mistakes and turnovers, but we hustled all night, which I was pleased to see.”
    The Fillies battled the heavily favored Lady Colonels even for the first period, despite junior center Jordan Doram picking up two early fouls.  

  • Breds second to Bourbon Co. in Rumble Saturday

    Coach Luke Tucker’s Harrison County wrestling team overcame some bad luck on Saturday to finish second thanks to some gritty performances by some young, up-and-coming wrestlers.  
    The bad luck was when freshman Nathan Lopez suffered a concussion in the semi’s of the 120 lb weight class and could not continue.  
    Lopez was a stalwart in the eighth grade last year and figured to score points in the meet on Saturday.  
    That was the bad news though for the Breds.  

  • Where are our priorities

    The Harrison County Thorobreds are off to a great start after the first two games, which is when this was written and that is wonderful.  They are playing an exciting brand of basketball, which is fun to watch and people should go support them.  
    But that is not what this article is about.  
    The University of Kentucky hired a new coach with a football family name, Mark Stoops, and that too is great.  Probably a good hire, at least one with a little imagination, but that is not what this article is about either.
