* Log Cabin, April 2,1897 - The members of the local Chapter of the D.A.R. were entertained by Mrs. Hervey McDowell Tuesday.
* Cynthiana Democrat, Aug. 23,1928 - Cromwells Comments - Doubtless there are many who remember the passenger trains which ran through Cynthiana in the early 80s, a pigmy locomotive hauling three or four coaches and a mail and express car, with never a Pullman or a vestibule car. In those days if one happened to be a trifle late in arriving at the depot, and found his train just moving off all that he had to do was set sail down the track, and if he was a fairly good sprinter he could always catch the rear end and swing aboard. And here I am reminded of story which was current in my fathers lifetime and which his friends were fond of relating at his expense. The story goes that it was his invariable custom to arrive late for a train, and that as the train pulled in he would come dashing around the corner of the Old Lair Pike, and under whip arrive at the depot just as the train was pulling out. Nothing daunted, he would leap from his buggy, turning loose the hone to the tender mercies of some of the crowd, and as the story closes, my father never missed a train, and some bystanders always took the rig to the livery stable. (Copies of Cromwells Comments are available at the Cynthiana-Harrison County Museum)
* Lyndon Johnson - If future generations are to remember us more with gratitude than sorrow, we must achieve more than just the miracles of technology. We must also leave them a glimpse of the world as it was created, not just as it looked when we got through with it.

* The Cynthiana Democrat, April 24, 1919 - Parking cars on Pike Street - The number of automobiles has increased so enormously that the parking problem is one with which every small city is obliged to deal. Cynthiana is no exception. The public square is the proper place to park cars day and night. Ample space is there and it is only a walk of a few minutes from any part of the business district.
* John Greenleaf Whittier - Give fools their gold, and knaves their power; Let fortunes bubble rise and fall; Who sows a field, or trains a flower, or plants a tree, is more than all.
