  • Argo and the class of 2013

    To the editor:
    Did you catch it? It was a trailing sentence at the end of  Chris Terrio’s acceptance speech for the “Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay)’ Oscar  for the film Argo.
    Mr. Terrio finishes with this…“And so I want to dedicate this to…the people all over the world in the U.S. and Canada and Iran who use creativity and intelligence to solve problems nonviolently.”

  • Financial disclosure a must for Commission on Aging

    No one is crying abuse of public trust, but there are some serious questions to be raised with the recent unraveling of finances for the Harrison County Commission on Aging.
    First, on March 21, board members were advised that the Senior Citizens Center was $21,000 in the red with monies to be paid to the state and federal government. That has escalated over the last month to a new deficit of $60,000.
    Now the question has become who is going to pay the $60,000?
    The bulk of that sum is penalties and interest.

  • 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.

  • Senior Citizen needs your help

    To the editor:
    The Harrison County Senior Citizens’ Center has taken yet another hit. As of April 1, staff hours have been cut to the barest minimum and the length of workdays has been shortened. The Center is striving desperately to stay open and to provide services to our community. These steps have been taken in order to remain a valuable senior resource in Cynthiana and surrounding areas. Unfortunately, without additional funding, cutting services will be next.

  • 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.
