  • Medicaid expansion could change Kentucky’s course, big time

    By Al Cross,
    Kentucky Health News
     “Today we change the course of Kentucky’s history.”
    It is not often that a public official can say such a thing with a large measure of credibility, but Gov. Steve Beshear legitimately raised that hope last Thursday, as he announced that he would expand Kentucky’s Medicaid program under federal health reform.

  • Look for warning signs and think before you act

    It saddens me to know that there has yet again been a young life taken from the world at such an early age.
    A young HCHS student allgedly took his own life over the weekend, leaving behind a host of family and friends to grieve his death.
    While everyone wants to know the answers to why, how and when, all that I care about are that measures are still not taken to prevent things like this from happening.
    Now I am not so naive to think that there is a magical switch that can be turned off to disable people from ever harming themselves.

  • Seeing police from diffrent perspective

    For the last several weeks I have been participating in the Kentucky State Police’s Citizens Police Academy.
    I have regular dealings with the Kentucky State Police and law enforcement in general. I have gone on ride-alongs with troopers over the years and have felt just a smattering of the adrenaline of a high-speed chase... er pulling over a speeder, but there were blue lights and sirens.
    Well, you get the picture.
    However, the CPA has been a complete eye opener.

  • There is plenty to do this summer in Harrison County

    Is summer really on its way?
    For the sake of not jinxing the county back into another cold spell... maybe I won’t say it out loud, but I do believe that warm weather is in our near future.
    So what does that mean?
    It means a lot for many Harrison County families if you think about it.
    Baseball is now underway, so many families will be gathering nearly every weekend to watch their children and grandchildren make memories at River Road Park.

  • “A Starry Night - An Arts Experience”…

    By: Karen Bear

  • Arts, alive and well in Harrison County

    As I sat in the audience at Cynthiana Baptist Church Sunday afternoon, waiting for the Licking Valley Singers to take the stage, I thought about some of the Broadway songs I remembered and silently hummed.
    I knew that Don Johnson was going to be opening up with “Ol’ Man River.”
    My interviews with Dr. Beth Laytart and Karen Bear gave me a heads up there. I also had some impromptu reviews from family members who attended the Friday night performance.
