  • Police called to bar for ‘shots fired’

    Responding to a “shots fired” call on Friday, Jan. 14, Cynthiana police officers found two guns and a large knife in a vehicle along with two suspects.
    The call came in just before midnight, when the bar was preparing to close, that someone had fired a gun inside Shiloh Blue on Walnut Street.
    “In that situation, where there are guns involved, you’re trying to clarify, if you’re going in the bar, who’s involved and who has the gun,” said Ptl. Jeff Thomas.

  • A.Keller Dam committee offers three options for repair

    There are three solutions to correct the deteriorating A. Keller Dam, Dustin Rose told members of the Cynthiana City Commission Tuesday night.
    “This is something to get excited about,” Rose said.
    He said the dam can be torn down and a new one built or the existing dam can be repaired by replacing rocks and pouring a new cap across the top. The third option is go with the second and build a riffle below the dam.
    Dave Kennedy, city advisor, has drawn a proposal for the project, Rose said.

  • Violent shootings of peace officers intolerable

    Amanda Haworth. Roger Castillo. Thomas Baitinger. Jeffrey Yaslowitz. Steven Dodds. Ralph Painter. Christopher Matlosz. Suzanne Hopper. William H. Torbin Jr., Larry Nehasil.
    You may not recognize the names, but soon each one will be etched in granite in some cemetery.
    Senseless.
    There is no other word to describe the apparent war against police officers that has left 14 families grieving for their sons and daughters, husbands and wives.
    So far this month, 14 police officers have been murdered while doing the jobs in their chosen fields.

  • Breds start slow fall to Woodford County, 58-53

    The Harrison County Thorobreds came out of the locker room ice cold Tuesday night, fell behind Woodford County by as much as 13 points early and never could recover as they lost to the Yellowjackets 58-53 on the Hilltop.  
    The Thorobreds only made one field goal in 14 attempts in the first period to fall behind by 16-3 at the first period’s end.  
    The start was so devastating, in fact, that the Breds were not outscored in any other period, but never led in the game.  

  • Fillies win two at home over Campbell, Bourbon

    The Harrison County Fillies improved their season record to 10-9 with home victories over Campbell County on Saturday and Bourbon County Monday night.
    The games were as different as the opponents as the Fillies stopped a Campbell County 15-0 start with a 55-49 victory Saturday night.  
    It was one day short of a month that the Lady Camels had blistered the Fillies by a 68-46 score in the Edwardo’s Classic at Pendleton County as they went on to win that tournament.  

  • Tri-meet with Scott and Anderson results in split

    It was state champion Brandon Barnett’s senior night on the Hilltop last Wednesday as the wrestling Thorobreds faced Anderson County and Scott County in a three-team tri match.  
    If only the Thorobreds could have matched their team captain and senior leader, the score would have been more favorable, but that wasn’t to be on this night.  
    Barnett pinned his two opponents on his special night in 28 and 42 seconds in the manner the Harrison County fans are growing to expect.  

  • Bad language nothing new, should we be offended?

    Poor John Calipari. He is more than likely in the most high pressure job in the country where the fan base is living in the prehistoric basketball ages expecting the world every year and he is being chastised for swearing at a player on national television.   
    Fans are generally in agreement that they like Calipari, some because anyone would have been better the Billy Gillespie, some because they didn’t like the type of offenses that either Gillespie or Tubby Smith used, but almost everyone likes him one way or the other.  

  • Thorobreds defeated by Clark, regroup to spank Bourbon County

    The Bourbon County gym was the sight of the 500th game of Mike Reitz’s Harrison County coaching career and it could hardly have been a better night.  
    The Thorobreds rallied from two straight defeats to hand the home standing Colonels a decisive 81-64 thumping to improve their season record to 10-8 in the Friday night battle.
