  • 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.”
