  • Candidates shouldn’t run if they can’t fulfill the position’s demands

    There’s no doubt in my mind that it’s going to be an exciting election year.

    Cynthiana and Harrison County voters will actually have decisions to make this year when they step into the voting booth. Almost every magistrate seat has a set of contenders and the commission will have a spot on the May primary ballot since over eight candidates filed for the four commission positions.

    Both for the county and city, many of the candidates are new to the local political world. While not endorsing anyone, I think that’s exciting to see.

  • Wells makes bid for District 7 magistrate position

    Larry Wells has filed as a candidate for magistrate to represent District 7 on the Harrison County Fiscal Court.

    Wells, 59, is a life long resident of District 7 having grown up on Casey Mill Road, then moving to Berry in 1967 when his parents, the late Grover and Ruth Wells, purchased the StarLite Restaurant.

    Wells is married to Diana Cooper Wells and they have three children, T.J., Brittany and Lucas. The Wellses raised their children and still reside in the same house Larry lived in when he graduated from Harrison County High School in 1969.
