    Some of you may have just finished watching “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” a cable television miniseries which detailed the so-called “trial of the century,” and you may be wondering what happens during a typical felony jury trial in Kentucky.

  • Don’t make me scream

    If I hear another person say, “There’s just nothing to do in this town”, I think I’ll scream.
    I’ve heard that for years, but have never deciphered what those people want, that Cynthiana doesn’t provide.
    Certainly, a city pool for use  all year, would be nice. But that can’t be the only complaint the nay-sayers have.
    What is there that these people so desperately want that isn’t offered in the Maiden City?

  • Church donates blankets to HMH

    The First Church of God in Cynthiana donated blankets to Harrison Memorial Hospital for the Project Linus project. The church donated 30 blankets to the project.
    Project Linus is a group of individuals who provide blankets to children through local fire departments, hospitals, health departments and more. Since 2009, the group has donated more than 1000 blankets for pediatric patients at HMH.

  • A God I can yell at

    Every Saturday morning I go to the Panera near my house and write my column for the following week.
    I order an egg white and cheese breakfast sandwich and a small coffee and sit at the table that faces the big window so I can watch the traffic go by.
    I spread my stuff out, my notepad and pen and laptop and assorted notes. Most weeks I already know what I’m going to write about, but not always.

    Mike Aldridge,
    Sports Writer

    The Harrison County Fillies beat Nicholas County, Jeffersontown, Bryan Station and Robertson County twice to raise their season record to 12-3 after Tuesday’s games.  
    Last Wednesday the Nicholas County Lady Jackets fell to 8-7 on the year as Harrison County handed them an 11-0 loss in five innings.  
    The game was scoreless until the bottom of the third when Madison Polley singled and Nicholas County hurler Jonna Watkins could not find the plate, walking two.  

  • A ritual of spring

    A Ritual of Spring
    It is that time of year again when the top college players decide whether to stay in school or go on to the professional level.  
    Since John Calipari has been at The University of Kentucky, there have always been some players destined to leave.  
    This year was no exception. In fact, it was made ridiculous when the entire squad opted to put their name into consideration by the pros.  
    Of course, under the new rule, as long as they do not hire an agent they can still come back to school for the following year.
