A Harrison County High School student got way more than he expected when he decided to follow his teacher’s advice and write his congressman.
Within a few weeks of writing a letter of protest with a petition to Kentucky’s legislators in Washington, Ryan Huff, 16, a Harrison County High School sophomore and a member of Future Farmers of America, found himself in a face-to-face meeting with U.S. Sen. Rand Paul and organizing a class visit for U.S. Rep. Andy Barr.
In keeping with Cynthiana mayor James Smith’s platform for a beautification of the city, a proposal was presented at Tuesday’s meeting to aid with that goal.
Melinda Boyers and Juanita Herrington said they would like to create a community garden that would be for education as well as beautification.
Boyers, an experienced gardener and instructor, told commissioners that in her preliminary discussions around town, she has received positive feedback.
After an exciting junior varsity game won in two overtimes, 61-55, by Mason County, the big crowd on the Hilltop was pumped for a tight game between the two varsity squads.
The crowd got what they paid for but it took the Thorobreds a quarter to deliver their end of the bargain.
Once again, Harrison County got off to a slow start caused largely by eight turnovers and poor shot selection.
The visiting Royals jumped out to a 20-to-7 lead after one quarter behind their big men, seniors Dorian Henry and Jake O’Mara.
