  • Absence of Christmas parade leaves void

    I can’t say I missed standing out in the rain and cold Saturday afternoon to cover the Christmas parade.
    However, I did miss seeing the excitement in the faces of the children who would ride by and wave enthusiastically for the camera.
    Cynthiana’s Christmas parade was postponed or cancelled for the second time in as many Saturdays due to weather. Well, this last Saturday’s cancellation had some to do with weather but more to do with some of the entries pulling out.

  • Planning commission creates overlay zone for business park

    By Bonnie Skinner, P&Z director
    A few months ago the planning commission was approached with concerns regarding the Cynthiana-Harrison County Business Park.
    The planning commission felt it was appropriate to address these concerns while still guiding development in an appropriate manner.  
    A task force, including planning commission members, planning staff, elected officials and a local citizen, was established to review current regulations and discuss options specifically for the business park.

  • Parade is cancelled

    Not once but twice in the same year the Christmas parade had to be cancelled due to inclement weather.  

    According to Pat Grenier, Chamber director, too many entries had cancelled to continue with plans for the Dec. 14 event.

  • Fillies gut out road win at Nicholas County

    “It was a gut check for the other girls with Jordan (Doram) hobbled and they came through with a good effort,” surmised Coach Kim Furnish after the Fillies’ 60-52 win at Nicholas County Monday night. “We showed more poise and confidence in the second half when we really needed it.”
    Senior center Jordan Doram led the Fillies to a 30-24 halftime lead with a splendid 21-point, 10-rebound first half performance.  

  • Jenkins resigns as Fillies soccer coach after nine seasons

    Harrison County is looking for a girl’s soccer coach following the resignation of head Coach Kim Jenkins after nine seasons at the helm of the Fillies.  
    Jenkins’ varsity tenure came after 16 years at the Harrison County Middle School.  
    Her overall record with the Fillies is 75-77-20 having won the last two district championships and finishing runners up in other seasons.  
    Jenkins notified her team of the decision late last week after careful consideration.  

  • College and NFL officials worry me

    Before I get into my thought for the week I want to congratulate the Scott County Cardinals, Head Coach Jim McKee and assistant coach Doug Hampton.  
    What a thrill it has to be for Jim to coach his oldest son and Doug his grandson to a state football championship.  The entire Hampton, Palmer and McKee families must be as proud as they can be.
    I have watched more college and professional football in the past few days than usual due to Patti being out of town (no supervision) and the lousy weather keeping me inside.
