  • Things heating up for new session



  • Welcome to the New Year

    I am hesitant to talk about my personal goals for 2014 largely because I know my parents read this column. They have a a really irritating habit of holding me accountable to my goals.
    As the year goes on and my resolutions recede — as they ought — into the softer and more manageable world of complacency, my mother will call me on Saturday morning with the inevitable questions:
    How’s that weight loss thing going, huh?
    You doing that longer writing project you said you wanted to pursue?

  • College team Christmas Gifts

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    Despite giving up 24 points due to not having a wrestler in four weight classes, the Harrison County Thorobreds finished sixth of 16 teams at Louisville Central Saturday.  
    “We did well considering we gave up the four classes,” said Coach Luke Tucker. “That spots the others points that we have to overcome.”  
    Tucker was especially happy with the efforts of Michael Mattox, Chase Highlander, Nathan Lopez, Clay Arthur, Kellon Williams, and Dominic Walker.  

  • Fighting over a duck dinner for the holidays

    Before I get started on the subject of my column for this week, I wanted to take a moment to express my belated congratulations to the cast and crew of Rohs Opera House’s production of “A Christmas Story” earlier this month.
    I meant to say something in my column two weeks ago, but I lost my train of thought amid all that talk of chocolate.
    Better late than never, I guess, but my hostdaughter and I were thoroughly entertained by the performances of the entire cast, particularly the performances of the children.

  • Absence of Christmas parade leaves void

    I can’t say I missed standing out in the rain and cold Saturday afternoon to cover the Christmas parade.
    However, I did miss seeing the excitement in the faces of the children who would ride by and wave enthusiastically for the camera.
    Cynthiana’s Christmas parade was postponed or cancelled for the second time in as many Saturdays due to weather. Well, this last Saturday’s cancellation had some to do with weather but more to do with some of the entries pulling out.
