  • 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.

    Harrison County junior-to-be Jacob Markley traveled to Pikeville the first weekend of June and competed in the Pikeville Open Tennis Tournament. Playing on the newly refurbished courts at the University of Pikeville, Markley brought home the championship in the 18 and under division.  
    Markley and the recently graduated Wes Barnett along with others on the Harrison County High School team plan to compete in several tournaments this summer.

    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.  

  • Breds end baseball season with...

    “When you come right down to it, you have to get hits,” bemoaned Coach Mac Whitaker. “Brossart’s key guys got hits and ours didn’t.”  
    That about summed up the feelings for the Hall of Fame coach the day after the Breds dropped a controversial loss to the Mustangs of Bishop Brossart in the championship game of the 10th Region.  

  • A perfect season

    The recent events on the baseball field bring to mind one particular saying or remark that my dad said frequently.  I will tell you what it was later on in the article.
    The conclusion of the Harrison County versus Bishop Brossart game was less than desirable for the Harrison County fans who had hopes of returning after a one-year absence to the state finals.  
    I was not in attendance but have had several first-hand accounts of what happened including talking with the main man, Mac Whitaker.
