  • Big thanks to the baseball team

    To the editor:

    Don’t look now, but little ol’ Harrison County is moving up the ladder in all-time baseball state tournament wins. Harrison County now has four state titles. Next in our sights is St. Xavier who has five, then on to Manual and Owensboro who have six each. Maybe we can catch them in the next couple of years! Okay with you, Mac?

  • HISTORY: Cynthiana's main attraction?

    Cynthiana’s history comes alive this weekend.

    Over a year ago, one Eastside Elementary fifth grader (now a sixth grader) made a big discovery of some big mistakes.

    Joe Moss was working on a project for Jeff Kinney’s fifth grade history club, when he noticed that some historical markers in the county weren’t completely accurate.

    After taking photographs of the markers on US 27 North and South, Joe noticed that the two markers had conflicting dates for the first Battle of Cynthiana, which occurred on July 17, 1862.

  • FLOOD OF 2010

    We did learn from the past.

    On Sunday evening in Cynthiana and Harrison County, it was obvious that we all were having flashbacks from the 1997 flood.

    As rain continued to fall, families in the west side of town could be found looking out front doors, loading special belongings into cars, watching the river waters creep into Rev. Ross Park and remembering an earlier flood 13 years ago that swept away everything from so many people.

    It was also evident that county, city and law enforcement officials had taken some notes after March 1997.

  • Museum Musings

    * Cynthiana News, June 6, 1867 - “The county of Harrison is entitled to three scholarships in the ‘Agricultural College’ located in Lexington, we believe. It is a concern we know little about and care to know less. It is time that the Legislature of Kentucky cease making appropriations for the advantage of a certain few. The people of this county have paid taxes enough for the benefit of a few nabobs.” (nabob - person of great wealth)
