  • Moses will work hard for town

    To the editor:

    I want to urge the citizens of Cynthiana to vote Steve Moses as your next mayor. I have been friends with Mr. Moses and his family since childhood and cannot think of a more dedicated and honest citizen to lead our town. I feel a strong leader is someone who is not afraid to roll their sleeves up and put in an honest day of hard work. Mr. Moses is no stranger to hard work. He worked for 27 years at the State Highway Department. He has the experience to manage our city streets.

  • Court says yes to funding for Berry Data Center

    The Harrison County Fiscal Court chose its annual meeting in Berry Tuesday to make another six-month financial commitment to the Berry Data Center.

    While the motion passed to pick up the $28,400 tab, three magistrates voted against the proposal.

    “A kid in Kelat should have the same opportunities as a kid in Berry,” said magistrate Bradley Copes prior to his “no” vote. “Education should be up to the school board; information should be the library. The fiscal court is responsible for maintaining the infrastructure of this county.”

    Soccer is often low scoring, but in Paris and Grant County’s case, if you don’t score at all it is hard to win. 

    This is what the Lady Hounds and the Lady Braves discovered when they faced Tiffany Snider and the Harrison County Fillies’ defense. Last Wednesday night, the Lady Hounds visited LeBus Field and fell by a 1-0 score.

  • Breds improve record with two more shutouts

    The Harrison County Thorobreds improved their season soccer mark to 10-3-2 with shutouts of Paris on Thursday and Sayre, Saturday morning. 

    Both of the games were played at LeBus Field, but the play and intensity was different in each game. 

    Paris came into the contest with a 3-10 record and didn’t figure to be much of a challenge. 

    That prediction had Coach Nick Hill using this game to try to work out some kinks in the Breds’ game.
