St. John the Baptist might have sustained himself on locusts and wild honey but the parishioners and visitors at the St. John the Baptist church festival had a much heartier feast. Ray Bruns helped prepare about 3,300 pounds of fried chicken on Sunday, June 28. Helping him bread a batch were Joe and Barb Banks and Mike Thompson.

At the Board of Zoning Appeals meeting, Strunk sought a conditional use approval for the residential zoned property. So many residents in opposition attended that the meeting space could not contain them all. Many were left standing in the hallway.

A public hearing at the Harrison Board of Zoning Appeals for a conditional use approval sparked so much debate that Greater Harrison community members in attendance exceeded the capacity of the room leaving a flood of concerned residents spilling into the hallway on Tuesday, June 23.

Drivers on Interstate 74 in Harrison can now drive five miles per hour faster. The speed limit recently increased from 65 mph to 70. Though the Ohio speed limit was raised to 70 from 65  mph in 2013 on 570 miles of Ohio highway, Harrison’s portion of I-74 had previously remained unaffected. 

Denny Baker of West Harrison, Ind., recently won The Cultural Enrichment Award at Elder High School in Cincinnati, Ohio. 

The award is named in honor of Lee M. Trauth, longtime music teacher and composer at Elder. It is awarded to a member of the Elder community who has advanced the appreciation of culture in society. 

Just about everybody cooled off in the giant puddle and chilly spray from the Harrison Fire Department’s truck Tuesday evening, June 16. Only moments later, the heavens opened up and rain joined the hose’s spray but that didn’t stop the children and dog from their fun.
