  • Three-county race right around the corner

    We are getting so excited for this year’s Tri-County Road Race Series. This is a three-part race series that takes you to Lake Carnico in Carlisle, Downtown Paris and Downtown Cynthiana. This is the first time we have partnered with other counties and we can’t wait.
    Each race has its own personality and comes with a shirt and goody bag. If you sign up to participate in all three races, you receive a one-of-a-kind participation medal, handmade right here in Cynthiana by Licking Valley Laser Works.

  • Session begins to wind down, but the work continues to ramp up

    As always, it was a busy and eventful week in Frankfort. Although we had a short week with only four days of action, every day was fairly lengthy and the end result was a plethora of bills and resolutions passed, most of which are heading straight to the governor for final approval.
    Conference committees were also named this week. Conference committees are groups of both senators and representatives that come together to hash out differences on things the two bodies disagree on.

    To the editor:
    In response to Lee Kendall’s excellent article, I have some words that might explain our situation.
    Manners, respect, discipline, responsibility, and consequences.
    These words are meaningless nowadays for children and adults.
    We are now in the third generation of this degradation.
    This started with removing control from teachers and on up to the same for cops. No consequences.
    A three day suspension for a rouge student is a three day holiday on the streets.

    To the editor:
    My daughter attends school at Harrison County Middle School. I am writing to you today because there is a lack of support for the Harrison County Speech Team! I must strongly urge you to find the support for the Speech Team that is given to the volleyball, baseball, football, basketball or cheer teams. Public speaking is essential for children developing into young adults. Many teachers require students to participate in a project/or speech in the class room, but the students are never properly taught how to give a speech or tell a story.
