    * Cynthiana Democrat, April 30, 1914 - “The property owners on Pike Street between Walnut and Main, this newspaper is informed, are with few exceptions, heartily in favor of the suggestion made in this paper a short time ago, that the streets within the limits named be reconstructed of brick. The cost, compared to the benefit, would be small indeed. It is estimated that $3 per lineal foot would be the expense. The street would last twenty years and prove of immense advantage to that section of the business district.”’

    Before I get into the article, I want to apologize to the cheerleaders at Harrison County. When I was going over the reasons that people should attend the games on the Hilltop I failed to mention the role that the cheerleaders play in the overall evening and in the community. Not only do they keep the crowd in the game, but they involve the younger girls in cheerleader camp to promote the future of HCHS cheer.
