  • “A Starry Night - An Arts Experience”…

  • 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.

  • Luck is overrated, but a charm is good to keep close

    I am a God fearing man so as far as luck is concerned, I don’t have much belief in it.
    Well, that is almost all true.
    I am a God fearing man and I don’t believe in luck for the most part.
    However, there is one area that I think a little luck comes into play and I have my own “lucky charm” to help increase my chances of success.
    I love to hunt and anyone who knows me well will confirm my passion for the great outdoors during hunting seasons.
    Deer, turkey, quail and squirrel. It makes no difference.
