  • Help elect Lutz for magistrate

    To the editor:

    People say that as each election comes around, that this is the most important election ever. Well, we don’t know if that is true or not, but what we do know is that Harrison County has not developed like the surrounding counties have. Harrison County has had the same group of people in office and we need a change to lead us to a bright future. One leader of that generation is Missy Lutz, who is running for magistrate in District 4 - that is the Leesburg and Extension Office precincts. Please help us get her elected.

  • Propagating trees from seed

    Some plants are prolific; some are not. 

    Dandelion seeds float through the air and disperses far and wide in spring or summer; hundreds of tiny seeds burst from the spent blooms of cleome as a sphinx moth feeds at dusk; and you can just walk past some hairy cress and millions of seed burst forth from the draft.

    Woody plants seem to be a bit more elusive. I have never seen a Serbian spruce spring forth from a fallen cone or an apple tree emerge from rotten fruit beneath the canopy. 

    Starting woody plants from seed can be a bit more tricky.

  • City ups commitment to $100k to Wedco for wellness facility

    The city has agreed to give additional funding toward the proposed indoor activities facility at Flat Run Veterans Park.

    While the commission voted to give $62,500 to the project at a special meeting last week, Commissioner Mark Mattmiller told the commission at Tuesday evening’s meeting that Wedco needed additional funds for the matching Healthy Kentucky grant application.

    “If they (Wedco) don’t get the grant, we get the money back,” Mattmiller said.

    Mattmiller said the grant deadline is this upcoming Monday.

  • Bradfords to host Harrison Co.Farm Field Day Oct. 18

    The Harrison County Farm Field Day will be held Monday, Oct. 18 at 4 p.m. We will be visiting the farm of Troy and Mary Ware Bradford located on Connersville Pike. The farm is approximately three miles from Cynthiana.

    The farm operation includes 300 acres of land which corn, soybeans, tobacco and hay production creates a unique farm program.  Although many of these enterprises are labor intensive, I think you will see how you can reduce some of the expenses.

  • A GOOD IDEA

    For years, Harrison County residents have vocalized the desire for an indoor facility that would cater to Cynthiana’s recreational needs.

    It appears the possibility of that facility is closer now than ever before.

    Wedco health department employees are currently working on a matching $250,000 grant from the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky that would build a wellness/activity center at Flat Run Veterans Park.

  • Slucher scores four times in 50-0 rout of Pendleton Co.

    Junior running back Nick Slucher scored the only points in the first half on a one-yard run with two seconds to play.  It was difficult to foresee that the Thorobreds would put 43 points on the board in the second half by the first half play, but that is just what happened. 

    Three of the second half touchdowns were on runs of four, one and 13 yards by Slucher has he was the work horse for the Thorobreds’ offense Friday. 

    He carried the ball for 142 yards on 19 carries and did not see any action in the fourth quarter.
