  • HOUSE BILL 43: NO TEXTING WHILE DRIVING

    I’ve wrecked a car twice in my life.

    Two different vehicles, but both separate occasions were on the same downtown Cynthiana street that I travel through almost every single day.

    I’m happy to report I was not text messaging while driving when either of the accidents occurred.

    But was my attention on the road 100 percent?

    No.

    I’ll admit it.

  • Harrison County baseball preparing for tough competition

    Coach Mac Whitaker and the Harrison County Thorobreds baseball squad are preparing for a season full of games with top-notch competition. 

    The schedule not only has the much-anticipated trip to Las Vegas, but also many of the better teams of Kentucky to play both here and on the road. 

    The Bishop Gorman’s Easter Classic in Las Vegas will be held April 7-10, which will be after the Harrison County squad has already played at least seven games. Of course, all of the games are weather permitting. 

  • Horn was a tremendous asset to community, will be missed

    To the editor:

    My mother and I own the Rainbow Thrift Shop on the corner of Pike and Walnut Street. Anyone who has an emergency or fire, etc. we never turn them away for help with clothes, furniture or anything that is necessary. If it wasn’t for Clarence Horn, John Hodge and the Salvation Army, along with local churches’ participation, a lot of it couldn’t be done because we do it out of our own finances and we are both on a fixed income.

  • Hope for ‘Good (and not-so Good) Daughters’

    When my sister was little, she wiped spaghetti sauce from her mouth with a piece of bread.

    This is a significant event in our family’s history because, as the Good Daughter, it is probably the one and only time Peggy ever got in trouble.

    In a nanosecond, Peggy did the bread-wipe and Dad reached over and whacked her hand, which stunned us all. Not that Dad whacked one of us, but that it was Peggy — the Good Daughter!
