    Pitcher Logan Dailey and outfielder Malcolm Thomas are two of 18 underclassmen from across Kentucky that will represent the Commonwealth in a national baseball tournament that will be held in Plainfield, Ill., July 29-Aug. 1.

    Dailey, a junior-to-be in the 2009-10 school year, was the Harrison County Thorobreds top pitcher during the 2009 season, finishing the year with a record of 8-2 with an ERA of 1.30.

    He pitched a complete game shutout in the Breds 2-0 win over Louisville Trinity in the first round of the Forcht Bank/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament this spring.

  • 9-10s win district Little League...

    Twenty-one teams from seven different counties descended on River Road Park over the last two weeks to participate in the District 3 Little League Tournaments, hosted by the Cynthiana-Harrison County Recreation Department.

    One of the two Harrison County teams that participated in the two tournaments at RRP emerged as the eventual champion and move on to play in the Little League State Tournament this weekend in Richmond.

  • Hunter education class set for...

    Hunters who have not taken the safe hunter education class need to sign up.

    The safe hunter education class will be offered July 27, 28 and 29 at the Harrison County Extension Office. The classes start at 6 p.m. and end at 9 p.m. The class is free, open to the public and all materials are provided for each student. You must be 9 years old to take the class.

    The classes are sponsored by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife and are taught by Harrison County volunteer instructors.

  • Farewell to ‘Jungle...

    It’s often been said that in a small town like Cynthiana, everyone knows everyone else, or at least knows something about everyone else.

    Based on the numbers of people who attended Jim Letcher’s visitation on Monday night, he knew a bunch of people… and a bunch of people thought a lot of “Jungle,” yours truly included.

    To state it mildly, those of us who knew Jim were shocked at his sudden passing late last week.

    Breds golf tryouts

  • Lenox wins 6th Mooney...

    He hasn’t caught his dad yet, but don’t bet against Bart Lenox one day surpassing dad Mike Lenox as the all-time most winning golfer in the history of the Joe Mooney Memorial Men’s Invitational Golf Tournament at the Cynthiana Country Club.

    The younger Lenox notched title No. 6 last weekend, coming from one shot behind heading into the second round to win by one over Maysville’s Bill O’Mara on Sunday, to get within shouting distance of his father’s 10 championships.

  • Little League to wrap up this...

    The Cynthiana-Harrison County Recreation Department’s River Road Ballpark has been hopping with activity, despite a weekend of showers.

    Director Rick Chasteen said Tuesday that Little League games in the district tournament were cancelled on Saturday afternoon and Sunday.

    However, the 25 teams that make up District 3 are making those games up this week by playing six games each evening.

    Teams from seven counties are participating in the tournament that will wrap up this weekend with elimination games on Saturday and Sunday, Chasteen said.
