  • Burley Belles rained out as wet weather prevails

    For the first time in the 45 year history of the Burley Belles Golf Tournament rain was the winner and the Cynthiana Country Club and the best of central Kentucky’s lady golfers lost out.  
    “It was too wet to even play on Sunday,” said Cynthiana Country Club Grounds Superintendent Mike Lenox.  
    “We had 62 or 63 entries ready to go but the course just was unplayable,” noted Kay Cox, the Burley Belles chairperson.  

  • At least we are not in Brazil

    Before I go into my column I want to mention that I attended the Cynthiana/Harrison County Recreation Board meeting Monday night.  
    I was a little late but when I arrived the business had already been conducted mainly because there was only WCYN’s Blake Bishop and his lovely wife Kim and myself in attendance other than the board members.  
    For all of the belly aching that I hear on the streets for no one to come to the meetings was a real surprise.  But seeing that, I say to the whiners and the gripers “Keep it to yourself.”
