Commission gives $12,500 toward Highland Games

GLASGOW — The Glasgow Highland Games representatives scored funding from the Glasgow-Barren County Tourist Commission on Tuesday, but it wasn’t as much as they had hoped to get.

The commission voted to contribute $12,500 toward the event, even though Bob Harrison, president of the games, requested $15,000.

“An event that goes that long should be ... self-sustainable,” said commissioner Kim Shipley. “I guess my reasoning is some times you have to make things more toward [becoming more self-sustainable].”

The commission has made a contribution to help support the event for several years. In 2012, the commission increased the amount it had given from $10,000 to $12,500.

Giving any more would have a significant impact on the commission’s budget.
