  • Mike’s Minute

    I have spent more time lately at the River Road Park fields and I have a few observations.  
    I believe the talent level in the girls’ softball program is improving by leaps and bounds. The fielding and hitting are much better, which would indicate that so is the coaching.
    Some of the other things that I noticed were not a positive as the improved play of the girls.  
    When Rick Chasteen was the recreation director the park was clean, the fields were well prepared and there were more than enough umpires.

    Cynthiana’s Joe Henson shot 69 on Saturday for a two-stroke lead and stretched it Sunday to a four-stroke win as he took the 52nd annual Joe Mooney Invitational.  
    The event, which is sponsored by the Men’s Golf Association, is held annually at the Cynthiana Country Club in honor of former member Joe Mooney.

    The Cynthiana-Harrison County Baseball Hall of Fame inducted eight new members Saturday night during a dinner and ceremony held at the Cynthiana Elks Lodge.  
    The 2016 Hall of Fame program was dedicated to the members of the Hall who have passed away.  They are Hervey McClellan, Ronnie Herrington, Ronnie Earle and Al Isaac.
    Jim Fuller welcomed everyone to start the evening and Buddy Renaker said grace. David Turner and the Elks staff prepared the meal.

    Macy Martin and Jami Davis joined Coach Christine Garnett on the East team for the annual East-West All Star softball games played last weekend at Georgetown College.  
    One unusual thing that was added for the Harrison County trio was that Christine’s dad, Charlie, was one of the umpires for the event.  Charlie Garnett along with Steve Chasteen had just returned from umpiring in the state championships in Owensboro and Garnett lent a hand or two to the all star program.

  • Three Fillies on pre-season...

  • Let’s hear it for Cleveland

    Most people think that when the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Golden State Warriors Sunday that this win broke the “curse’ which has plagued the city on Lake Erie since 1964.  
    1964 was the year that the Browns of the NFL had given the city its last championship of any of the professional franchises. That year the Browns, led by Jim Brown and Kentucky’s Lou “The Toe” Groza, beat the Baltimore Colts 27-0 to win the title.
