  • One of nature’s beloved scenes is twilight when the moon and the first star of the night appears against a darkening blue sky.
    Most of us probably learned to wish upon that star: “Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight...”
    Both my granddaughters are very empathetic. I imagine them looking at that lone star and feeling sorry for it; feeling sorry that it is up there all by itself.  

  • It was a warm summer night in a town near Washington, D.C.
    A group of friends sat around a backyard table eating dinner when a young man with a gun appeared and interrupted the dinner party, according to a 2016 NPR story.
    “Give me your money or I’m going to start shooting,” he said, pointing the gun at one of the women.
    The people believed him; however, no one had any money on them.
    So, they started talking to the man, first trying to play on his guilt: “What would your mother think about you doing this?”

  • MARSH
    Descendants of Nicholas Corbin Marsh and Mary Holton Marsh held their annual reunion at the Elks Shelter in Cynthiana on Aug. 6. The following names were recorded in the attendance book.

  • *Cynthiana News, July 25, 1872 -- “Last Monday was court day in Cynthiana. The crowd was good and money tight. There were about 70 head of cattle on the market.”
    *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.”

  • Ronnie and Judy Sims were married on July 10, 1987 at the Rev. Robert Anderson’s home in Cynthiana.
    Their daughters, Patty Purcell and Tonya Fuller, surprised them with a 30 year anniversary potluck on July 8 with their family and friends.

  • I received a letter from a reader years ago that asked somewhat of a philosophical question regarding determinate tomatoes.  
    Yes, philosophical, because she asked why would we plant a tomato that sets its fruit, reaches a certain point, stops growing, ripens nearly at once and then dies?
    Our love affair with homegrown tomatoes would more logically dictate that we grew only indeterminate tomatoes that reached monstrous proportions and yielded fruit into a first killing frost.
