-A A +A

* It is a time of the year when we honor our veterans, our current graduates, our country, our alumni, our United States flag, our schools, our beautiful country. We have so much for which to be thankful. Include a visit to the Cynthiana-Harrison County Museum in your activities and in your gratitude.
* Cynthiana Democrat, April 23, 1970 -- “Lee Sparks announces that his new Sparks’ Super Valu Store, located at 310 S. Church St., will open for business Monday, April 27 at 8 a.m. Sparks formerly operated the Cynthiana Food Market on Main Street in downtown Cynthiana.” (Do you remember the Main Street location?)
* Log Cabin, July, 1905 -- “Dr. P. Douglas, No. 220 Pleasant Street, will treat all ailments at my home at the above location. A cure guaranteed or money refunded. Will make visits where persons not able to come to me.”
* Cynthiana Democrat, May 21, 1970 -- “The 3M Plant, located on the New Lair Pike, has completed one year of production in Cynthiana. The first assembly work started May 26, 1969.”

* Cynthiana Democrat, June 29, 1967 -- “Remodeling will take place at Newberry’s in the form of installing four double booths in front of the luncheonette,’ Robert M. Simms said today. ‘Presently,’ he said,’ there is not sufficient seating capacity. The extra booths, which are to be complete by Aug. 1, will provide 16 more seats.’” (Did you ever sit in those booths?)
