Today's Features

  • There was always something to do growing up on the farm to prepare for the different seasons. One of the busiest times was preparing the family garden so that it would grow and produce good, healthy vegetables all during the season.
    A good, productive garden must be maintained weekly by removing all produce that is good or bad to make room for new growth. New growth is essential for continuous productivity. Each plant can be sustained and maintained by keeping soil lose, watering and cultivating lightly, depending on the weather.

  • Recently, as Sen. Elizabeth Warren gave a speech criticizing then-nominee now Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stopped her from speaking.
    In his explanation for invoking a little-known rule to silence her, McConnell said, “Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
    Immediately, that became the battle cry of many women across the nation with #ShePersisted and #LetLizSpeak among the top trending topics on Twitter.

  • It was a day like any other day. I woke up and went through my usual routines of getting my son ready and taking him to school. After dropping him off at school, I drove to Georgetown for a meeting with some pastors. Nothing unusual about that either until I began my journey back to Cynthiana.

  • A number of years ago, one of my daughters was a “secret shopper.”
    She actually got paid to go into restaurants and eat or clothing stores and shop. All she had to do was be inconspicuous as she observed the store’s employees.
    Then after leaving the store, she would write a report of her observations: “The salespeople seemed too busy talking to each other to pay attention to customers,” or “The server disappeared as soon as she brought my food and failed to suggest dessert.”

  • Ronda Stroub of Cynthiana and Paul (Brenda Bingham) of Pineville, announce the engagement of their daughter, Samantha Jolynn Stroub to Jason Michael Rice, son of Mike and Georgia Rice of Harrison County.
    Jason is the grandson of Amos and Lora Rice of Cynthiana.
    Samantha is the granddaughter of Jean Anderson of Harrison County.
    The engagement took place on Nov. 26, 2016 in Bell County.  A late spring wedding is being planned. Formal invitations will be sent.

  • In a fit of gratitude, I made a list of the things I loved about my life the other day.  
    I managed eight solid things, none were frivolous; and one prompted the whole exercise: I love warm February days.
    This beautiful February day set into motion a very productive weekend. It felt fantastic to get some good old-fashioned garden clean up done with my husband by my side and the sheep grazing freely about.  
    It makes you feel optimistic about the rest of your life.
