  • Brunker will put learning, kids first as a school board member

    To the editor:

    I am proud to support Mary June Brunker for Harrison County School Board, 2nd division. I have known Mary June for over 30 years, first as a friend and fellow teacher at Eastside, then as the parent of a child in her classroom, both at Eastside and later at HCMS.

  • A vote for Slade is a ‘vote for proactive progress’ in Cynthiana

    To the editor:

  • Emergency workers thanked for assistance following wreck

    To the editor:

  • Moses is the perfect choice for Mayor of Cynthiana

    To the editor:

    In a few weeks the citizens of Cynthiana will have the chance to elect a new mayor and I’m writing this letter to explain why I think Steve Moses would be the perfect choice.

    Reason number one: Steve is selfless when it comes to giving to his community. One example is the work he did to restore homes after the flood of 1997. He did not do this for monetary gain or recognition, but instead because he wanted to help those in need.

  • Playoff time and great memories

    The playoffs are set and the eight teams left will decide this year’s championship. 

    I think that the American League is wide open with Tampa Bay maybe the slight favorite. The National League has the Phillies as a clear cut favorite but the Giants could come in to surprise. 

    It will be really interesting with the World Series favorite being from the American League unless the Phillies do win the National League.  Then the Phillies should be the favorite due to H2O, Halladay, Oswalt and Hammels, the pitching trio who could dominate any team.

  • Cross country runs well at GRC Coaches Classic

    The return of junior Jacob Marsh sparked the fastest overall race for the Harrison County Thorobreds cross country team Saturday at the GRC Coaches Classic meet. 

    Marsh, who had been fighting an illness for nearly a month, was a medal winner finishing 15th in a time of 19:20 over the 5000M course. 

    Freshman Nathan Radford had his best race of the year (25th, 20:19) and Keenan Palmer and David Johnson also had strong races. Seventh grader Travis Fry was a surprise at the meet as he finished 67th in the varsity race in a time of 24:33.

    This November we are fortunate to have two individuals running for Mayor of Cynthiana who are respected and well liked within our community. Both currently serve as elected officials within city and county government and both bring a strong commitment for the betterment of our community.

  • Church: A place for all sinners

    On the way home from church last week I heard a radio spot.

    One guy tells another guy about his neighbor who’s always hard on his son. They’ll be out playing ball in the yard and the dad will constantly tell his son, “You’ll never be a ball player if you keep messing up like that.”

    Then the guy says, “Get this — on Sunday mornings the whole family gets in the car and goes to church.”

    His friend asks, “How do you know they’re going to church?”
