  • Is football in trouble?

    The World Cup of soccer and the Jungle Cup of golf are behind us now but with them comes, for me, the thought of football and its potential demise.  
    My cousin, Jeff, comes to Cynthiana from Columbus, Indiana, each year to play in the Jungle with me and he instills doubt in my mind each year about the relative health of youth football as a sport.  
    Jeff and I are like brothers and speak freely of our opinions without fear of upsetting the other’s fragile psyche like one may fear in a less-close relationship.

    Coach Richard Crowdy has just three returning seniors from last year’s 5-12-2 squad.  Lost from that team by graduation are Adam Bradford, Cameron Brown, Max Ferguson, Dillon Gasser, Tanner Hodge, Russ Judy, Josh Moore and Jacob Walker.  Even with this lack of varsity experience Crowdy is optimistic.  
    “The three seniors are skilled and determined young men with great attitudes,” he said.

    This is the 8th year for the annual “The Jungle” golf tournament held at the Cynthiana Country Club each July.  
    The Palmer-Hampton Agency is again sponsoring the tournament that is named after long time Country Club member, the late Jim Letcher.  Letcher’s sudden death in 2009 one week before the annual member/guest tournament led to the renaming of the tournament in Letcher’s honor the following year.  

  • Former Cynthiana resident takes...

    Former Cynthiana resident Daniel Williams has just returned to his Barren County home with a hefty load of award hardware from the Seattle, Washington, Special Olympics.

    Daniel competed in singles competition taking fifth place, team competition with three other athletes taking fourth place and in doubles, he and his partner brought home the gold, all in bowling.
