  • Missing out on something wonderful

    A few weeks ago, a 4.1 earthquake hit Yorba Linda, Calif., the town where I spent my teen years growing up and near where some of my family still lives.
    My niece, Jennifer, was in the shower when the quake hit and things started shaking.
    In all the years I lived in California that was among my top 10 greatest fears — to be in the shower and have an earthquake hit and be buried in a pile of debris while naked or in some stage of undress.
    I even named my fear“They’llFindMeNakedaphobia.”

  • Mike’s Minute

    Sports are a very important part of many people’s lives, including mine.  
    But I believe that there are occasions that call for remembering other things that are much more important. Such is the case this week when we reflect on the 11th anniversary of the cowardly attack made by Muslim radicals on New York and the World Trade Center.  
    The many people whose lives were lost and others whose lives were forever changed should be in our utmost thoughts and prayers during this week especially if not at all times.

  • Harrison runners second at Woodford County, Smith brothers lead Breds

    Tuesday, Sept, 4, was another hot, muggy day in central Kentucky, so the Harrison County cross country squad traveled to Woodford County for a four-team meet.

    The winning time of 17:52 was turned in by Adam Smith of Berea beating the Smith brothers times by a little more than two minutes.  

  • Dinner with David Sheely Sept. 21, 22

    In November 1846, David Sheely was executed by hanging for killing his wife on a hill north of Cynthiana.  Sheely is more known for what he did after death than anything that happened before.
    A local group of actors have taken David Sheely’s story and brought it to life in a storytelling experience known as Dinner with David Sheely.  
    A very unique event, Dinner with David Sheely is a dinner theater event held in the exercise yard of the old  county jail.

    The city expects to receive $490,249 this year compared to last year’s $489,247.
