    It’s a busy time in Cynthiana and Harrison County.
    This weekend is the famed Rod Run, an all-day car show that has put Cynthiana on the classic car map.
    Sept. 23 will be the first Super Saturday with a plethora of activities, including a ping-pong ball drop.
    Yea, just wait and see on that one! It should be a blast.
    Before that is the Taste of Harrison County, which includes the 5K and Little Feet, Big Feet road races.
    This next one is going to be near and dear to my heart.

    Harrison County schools have followed suit with several other school districts around the state and have canceled classes on Aug. 21, the day of the solar eclipse.
    I don’t have an issue with our local district taking that action, but I don’t like its reasoning.
    In its official press release, the school district said, “Student safety was the deciding factor in closing school for this event, since NASA and other scientific experts warn of possible eye damage if the sun is viewed improperly during the eclipse.”
