  • I really do like most people

    This morning I spent a few minutes on the radio with WCYN’s Coffee Break program sans its star Betty Gayle and had sort of a reality check.  
    Ray Sparks and I were on talking about the upcoming Joe Mooney Invitational at the Cynthiana Country Club when host Doug Miller had to take the show to a commercial break.  
    When he was closing to go to a break he said something to the effect to stay tuned and we would hear “What I didn’t like today.”

  • Lions hold off Rotary in Friday...

    The Lions Little League team kept the Rotary winless Friday night behind the pitching of Max Ferguson, Boston Pergram and Tyler Franklin.  
    Ferguson pitched the first 4 1/3 innings before running out of innings for the week, allowing one hit and three runs.  
    He struck out 11 and walked six in his innings on the mound.  
    Pergram and Franklin combined to strike out three and walk one in their inning and two thirds of work.  

  • Rotary, Lions teams treated to...
  • When I was 9 years old

    Before the critics who say “We don’t care about life in Tell City” cringe for another life story, this isn’t about when I was actually nine. But I could write about when I was 9 because it was really interesting and exciting with the adventures of a young boy growing up in a river town with his two brothers and a sister in a house on the cliff over looking the Ohio River.
    The NBA finals began on Tuesday night and since I turn this in to the paper before the game is played, I have no clue who won or how the game was played.

  • Elks Fast Pitch Softball
  • Elks spear Lions, Auto Systems...

    Editor’s note: For the next few weeks The Cynthiana Democrat will be at River Road looking for a “Game of the Week” in either Little League, T-Ball or Coach Pitch.  
    This week, Mike Aldridge was able to attend games on Monday and Tuesday to start off the series.

    On Monday evening, the Elks, led by an eight-hit attack which was boosted by 11 walks issued by Lions pitching, rolled past the Lions 16-4 in a four-inning contest.
