  • Former Cynthiana chief to be honored in Police Memorial Ceremony on Tuesday

    It was well before my time, July 29, 1939, when Cynthiana’s police chief responded to what is today considered a “domestic” situation.
    The 25-year veteran police officer approached the property where a man was abusing a teenage girl. As he was getting out of his car, he was shot in the back by the man who was hiding in his barn.
    Chief George Dickey died of his injuries.
    He will be remembered during a police memorial service in Richmond on Tuesday, May 22.

  • Bad week, Good news

    The other day a co-worker posted on Facebook that it had been the week from hell.
    We had all felt it. It was as if a black cloud hovered over us, raining down all kinds of bad.
    We had made mistakes. Tempers flared. Fingers pointed.
    Cranky people called, which didn’t help our own crankiness.
    We scowled. We skulked. We wished we were anywhere but here.
    It was one b-a-d week.
    One of my favorite children’s books is “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” by Judith Viorst.

  • Breds losing streak at three

    Assistant coach Eddie Feeback said it quite well in a post game interview after the 13-3 loss to Madison Central Saturday night: “We don’t know what to do just yet to fix our hitting problems,” lamented Feeback. “We work on different issues in practice, but somehow the players revert back to the old way in the games. We will keep working until we get it right.”
