  • College team Christmas Gifts

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    Despite giving up 24 points due to not having a wrestler in four weight classes, the Harrison County Thorobreds finished sixth of 16 teams at Louisville Central Saturday.  
    “We did well considering we gave up the four classes,” said Coach Luke Tucker. “That spots the others points that we have to overcome.”  
    Tucker was especially happy with the efforts of Michael Mattox, Chase Highlander, Nathan Lopez, Clay Arthur, Kellon Williams, and Dominic Walker.  

  • Cynthiana needs shelter for its homeless

    To the editor:
    I am very upset with the whole deal of people being homeless and no one wanting to step up and help them out. It is sad that we live in a world where people don’t care and if they were in the same situation they would want someone to help them.
    It doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor, you can always offer a hand or speak up and maybe the point will get across.

  • Writer sheds light on community's good people

    To the editor:
    In a world where you are more likely to hear about some sort of negativity, I am writing this to shed a little light on the good people of this community.

It is unfortunate, but it happens. Then, an another act of pure kindness reminded me that “thank you” isn’t said often enough.

  • Fighting over a duck dinner for the holidays

    Before I get started on the subject of my column for this week, I wanted to take a moment to express my belated congratulations to the cast and crew of Rohs Opera House’s production of “A Christmas Story” earlier this month.
    I meant to say something in my column two weeks ago, but I lost my train of thought amid all that talk of chocolate.
    Better late than never, I guess, but my hostdaughter and I were thoroughly entertained by the performances of the entire cast, particularly the performances of the children.

  • Dear Santa

    My name is Ethan. I have been a good boy this year. I would like to have hot wheels, video games, a Mario DS game. I want a new Jake and the neverland pirates movie. I want a lego Pirates ship that I can build. I also want a new dump truck and a Nabi tablet and a wagon with ramps and a toy ford Ranger to pull it and some new coloring books and crayons.
