  • Descent into ‘Mad’ness

    Season 6 of AMC’s “Mad Men” ended recently with the main character, Don Draper, finally (Hopefully) hitting rock bottom.
    For the first five seasons, the Madison Avenue ad man of the 1960s was the man every other man wanted to be and the man every woman wanted to be with.
    Smooth, handsome, supremely talented at his job, he could charm his way into or out of anything.
    At the same time, Don Draper lived a lie. Born Dick Whitman, he grew up dirt poor in a Pennsylvania whorehouse, the son of a prostitute.

  • This is a baseball community

    Not to take anything away from football, basketball, track, soccer, volleyball, wrestling, archery, fishing, tennis or cheerleading, but this is a baseball community.  
    We are good or have been good and will be good again in the aforementioned sports, but baseball is the sport that dominates our minds and thoughts in Harrison County.  
    This was obvious on Saturday night when the first annual Hall of Fame banquet was held by the Cynthiana/Harrison County Baseball Alumni Association.  

  • Coppage leads Kentucky All Stars to Series win over Tennessee

    Kentucky’s Miss Softball Ashley Coppage was three for six in three games with a walk to lead the Kentucky Senior All Stars to a two-games-to-one series victory over the Tennessee Stars.  
    Tennessee was divided between East and West Stars so the Kentucky girls had to play two times last Wednesday in Murfreesboro and then again the next day in Cookeville against a fresh Tennessee team with 11 Division 1 signees.
    Coppage, who spent last season at first base for the Fillies, played first base in each game for the All Star squad.  

  • Historic Biancke’s will no doubt rebound

    Like most everyone else in Cynthiana, when the news circulated that our beloved Biancke’s Restaurant was on fire, I was deeply saddened.
    I was out of town and unable to see for myself what was going on. However, initial reports were that it would be a total loss.
    When Thursday dawned, however, the future looked much brighter for Mary Todd and the Biancke’s crew.
    By all accounts, Biancke’s front door was like a revolving door of volunteers helping to clean up a mess left by fire, smoke and water.
    It could have been much worse.
