  • Public records will always be public information

    An elderly man walked into my office several years ago demanding that I tell him why I would print his grandson’s DUI in the paper.

    I hadn’t been editor long, but I knew the answer.

    “It’s public record,” I said. “We print records without exception.”

    He leaned into my desk from where he towered above me, pointed his finger in my face and declared... “This place ain’t nothin’ that a can of gas and match wouldn’t take care of.”

  • Fillies soccer continues rough schedule, wins one of four last week

    After losing to Franklin County Thursday, 2-0, Harrison County Fillies Coach Kim Jenkins decided to try a new formation to generate more offense. 

    The Fillies were tied with the Flyers at the half nil-nil, but just could not score and Franklin County came away with the victory. 

    The Fillies then traveled to Bowling Green to play in the Purples Classic on Friday and played three games in 24 hours. The first opponent was the Lady Trojans of North Hardin, which came into the match with a 2-5 record, but defeated the Fillies 0-2.

  • Capturing THOSE moments

    On a dark and cloudless Saturday night, while participating in a glow ball golf tournament at the Cynthiana Country Club, I started counting my many blessings:

    It was dark.

    No one had a camera.

    It was dark.

    My foursome was made up of family.

    It was dark.

    I didn’t need an ambulance to carry me off the course.

    And, it was blessedly, totally, undeniably dark.

    OK. This is the story I’m going with and sticking to.
