  • CCC to host ‘The Jungle’ this...

    The Cynthiana Country Club will host the fourth annual “The Jungle” tournament this weekend beginning with practice rounds on Friday.  
    The event, sponsored by Palmer-Hampton Insurance and Real Estate, is named after the late Jim Letcher, who was an active member of the Cynthiana Country Club and instrumental in the success of this and many other events involving the whole community.  
    Letcher died on July 17, 2009, and the tournament has borne his name since that time. The tournament is the former member/guest contest.

  • Baseball half over, goodbye Andy

    The half way point of the baseball season is here with the All Star Game played Tuesday night in Kansas City marking that dividing line.  
    It is actually a little more than half with teams having already played 84 or 85 games of the 162-game season. But if you throw in the month of playoffs, it is less than half way for many of the teams.  
    To date, the big spenders, with the exception of the Yankees, are not in first place in their division.

    Fifteen-time winner Anne Combs returns to the Cynthiana Country Club Friday to defend her Burley Belles championship of 2011.  
    Combs, who plays out of the Spring Valley Country Club, is one of four multiple winners who will again vie for the crown in the championship division.

  • Cynthiana-Harrison County...

    Since the formation of the Cynthiana-Harrison County Baseball Alumni Association in September 2011, much has been accomplished, yet its leaders want to do so much more.  
    The association is the brainchild of 1966 Harrison County graduates Larry Gossett, Jim Fuller and Ron England, and was formed to support and recognize baseball players in Harrison County.  

  • Yankees roll past Braves in T-...

    Terry Smiley’s undefeated Yankees extended their record to 20-0 Wednesday night as they defeated the Braves of Coach Billy Roberts, 22-9, in T-ball tournament action.  
    The Yankees advance to face the Reds who defeated the Blue Jays, 19-12, in the other semi final game.  
    The Yankees scored the maximum six runs in each of the first three innings to jump out to an 18-5 lead after three making it impossible for the Reds to come back within the one hour time limit.  

  • A day at the racetrack or he’s...

    Some people are the master of the obvious and while I don’t believe I am one of them, this statement is obvious.  Gosh is it hot!!
    I spent Thursday from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Ky., working as an usher. I was part of the six-person crew that was there to raise funds for the Harrison County Football program.  
    Each group who worked could have as many as 15 members, but the boosters could only muster six on Thursday and fewer numbers on Friday and Saturday.
