  • 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.

  • Covering the FACTS

    When I think about gossip, I think about high school.

    It was always amazing to me how you could say something in the parking lot of HCHS, and whatever you said could somehow beat you into the school.

    Words travel faster than humans.

    But gossip isn’t only found in high school hallways, bathrooms, cafeterias and classrooms.

    People often ask me how I come to know about the stories I write.

    “Somebody tells me,” I always reply back.

  • Harrison cross country runs well in Capital View Classic

    “It was a great day for our runners and I was happy for them,” said Coach Danny Simpson after the Capitol View Classic Saturday in Frankfort. 

    The race, which was run at The Archives on a hilly, rugged course, featured many of the better teams from central Kentucky. It was also the rare event where all of the participants were awarded a medal for the hard work that they put in during the day. Both the boys’ and girls’ varsity teams finished fourth in the team standings in this event.
