  • Remembering and honoring those men and women who served

    There is confusion between Memorial Day and Veterans Day sometimes.

    Memorial Day, sometimes called Decoration Day, is a day to honor deceased friends and family, usually on the last Monday of May.

    Veterans Day, Nov. 11, is a federal holiday to honor all veterans - both living and deceased. It is a time to honor the deceased and to recognize and thank those living that served and those that are serving the citizens of the United States throughout the world.

    You probably know a veteran of past service, and more than likely, you have close kin that served.

  • Harrison Co. Fillies look to seniors for leadership

    Second year Head Coach Jason Crisp is counting heavily on his four seniors to lead the Fillies as they strive to improve on last year’s 10-20 season. 

    “They have to be the ones to show the younger players how to score, defend and rebound,” he remarked. 

    The four are led by veteran point guard Lorainne Dennie, who Crisp said needs to be the leader on and off the floor. 

    “She has to score more yet look for assists and cut down on turnovers,” said Crisp.

  • City street needs repair

    To the editor:

    To the elected officials of Cynthiana - I am writing with a tongue in cheek request for help. I own my residence, which is on the west end of Battle Grove Avenue. You may not have noticed but we haven’t had the benefit of a nicely paved street for some years now here on Battle Grove. What with all the water and sewer leaks, not to mention the gas line leaks, a good part of our street has been made up of poorly applied cold patch and gravel for some time now.

  • Nothing is normal about the night of fright

    People do crazy things on Halloween.

    For the most part, my childhood Halloween’s tend to blend together - a blur of witches’ costumes, candy and orange and green swirls.

    But there is one Halloween that continues to stand out from the rest.

    It was the Halloween that proved all things normal are disregarded on the night of fright.
