Today's Opinions

  • ‘Harrison County’s baseball tradition is alive and well’

    To the editor:

    As I sit here on this Fourth of July weekend at River Road Park watching T-ball, I can’t keep from thinking this is the place where it all started. I’m talking about the players, our 2010 State Baseball Champions, our own Harrison County Thorobreds. I also reflect back to the time when the team was just three outs away from losing the region. There would have been no need for this article.

  • Ford’s life was a gift to others

    I don’t usually enjoy forwarded e-mails (unless they’re the really funny ones), but my mother recently sent me one with the title “well worth it.”

    Intrigued, I opened it.

    A YouTube video narrated by a Benedictine monk named Brother David Steindl-Rast, the message suggested that each day is something special.

    “You think this is just another day in your life?” the monk said. “It’s not just another day. It’s one day that is given to you. Today. It’s a gift.”

  • ART WALK 2010

    The Cynthiana Art Walk is itself, a piece of art. It began with an idea, infused with passion and many hard-working people. It happened because people believed it could and in turn, those people convinced business owners, musicians, corporations, local leaders, artists and visitors. Cynthiana residents are fortunate to have a downtown filled with law offices, dental practices, restaurants, retail shops, museum, theatre and gym. Sure, we need more, but we must remember to support what we have. 

  • A COMMUNITY-WIDE CELEBRATION

    To the Harrison County High School Thorobreds... now known as the 2010 State Baseball Champions:

    Wow! State champs!

    Congratulations on a job and season well done! All your hard work paid off, as you ended the season on a definite high note - claiming the title of Kentucky’s best!

  • Kennerly to sign “Cynthiana” books during Art Walk event

    To the editor:

    In December 2009, “Cynthiana,” my pictorial history of the Queen City, was released by Arcadia Publishing. I’m thrilled to say it has been very well received and that I’ve had an incredible time reconnecting with family and friends who helped bring the book to life.

  • The first lesson of marriage

    It’s official.

    I’m an old married woman and I’m now a Rash.

    Kate Rash.

    Despite the fact my name now sounds like a doctor’s diagnosis, I’m happy to be back home and back at the paper with a new husband and a new last name.

    I haven’t really written about Andrew (the brand new husband) in past columns, despite the fact we’ve dated the entire time I’ve worked at the paper and we’ve been engaged for the past year.

  • RELAYing HOPE

    It would be hard to find someone who hasn’t been affected by cancer, whether by their own diagnosis, or that of a friend or family member.

    Cancer is far-reaching, scary and life-changing.

    The disease doesn’t discriminate and makes no promises.

    But despite those characteristics, there is hope.

    Harrison County residents gathered at Ingles Stadium Friday for the 13th annual Relay for Life event.

    As the night progressed and the sun set, over 900 luminaries lined the track - each in honor or memory of someone with cancer.

  • HARRISON COUNTY FAIR

    Here’s a big yee-haw for the arrival of the Harrison County Fair!

    Summertime just wouldn’t seem the same without hog shows, tractor pulls, tilt-a-whirl rides, corn dogs, a newly crowned fair queen and funnel cakes.

    And while our annual fair has expanded to include many new activities (think mutton’ bustin’ and golf cart corn hole), the fair still brings with it an old excitement.

    For many families across the county, calendars are marked off and reserved for the more-than-a-week of fair fun.
