  • Board puts students first in Harrison County

    It’s about leveling the playing field; about everyone in a classroom on the first day of school starting off with a brand new box of crayons.
    The Harrison County Board of Education voted Tuesday to continue to provide back-to-school school supplies for elementary and middle school students and to not charge fees for high school students.

  • Community Clean-up Day, April 22

    On Earth Day, Cynthiana Main Street will be hosting its first Community Clean-up day this year.
    Once again, we have partnered with Bluegrass Greensource for this event. On Friday, April 22, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., we are asking volunteers to come downtown and join in our efforts of cleaning up Cynthiana.
    As I have said in the past, we will be “Spring Cleaning.”
    This can include washing windows on vacant buildings, sweeping the sidewalks, picking up trash or any other projects that need attention.

    To the editor:
    It is with deep sorrow that I withdraw my candidacy for state representative. My wonderful wife Betty passed away on April 13. My heart is broken. I need time to grieve and heal, so I am withdrawing my candidacy.
    I want to thank all the people who offered prayers and help. I will be forever grateful for all your kind words and actions.
    Sincerely,
    Sam Pierce
    Cynthiana, Ky.
