  • (StatePoint) Winter weather can bring with it the potential for slippery steps, power outages and other seasonal hazards. By being prepared in advance, you can weather the storm more comfortably and safely.
    Here are some crucial things to consider this season:
    Staying Powered
    While reading by candlelight is charming when it is by choice, a power outage is a different story. Losing power is not just an inconvenience; it could mean being unable to communicate with loved ones, spoiled food, and dangerous dips in indoor temperature.

    Births announced this week are: No births reported this week.
    A building next to City Hall, 106 E. Pleasant St., was demolished at a cost of $10,500. The city commission attempted to sell the building in hopes that it would be renovated. The building was one of the oldest in Cynthiana and was recently home to the Harrison County REACT.

  • It is hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us. I have family visiting for Christmas so this means a bigger tree than normal; if you are going to travel to come see us, this is the least I can do. Plus, it is fun to find the “perfect” tree that fits your space and holds precious ornaments with style.
    So, which type of tree reflects your holiday?
    Do you get a fresh-cut, artificial, balled and burlapped?  Or do you just go out-of-town and let someone else do the decorating?  

  • The Sunrise Homemaker Club traveled to Lexington, Ky. on June 9 to visit Peggy Barlow at the Willows Assisted Living Center. Our Club usually did an end of year trip and decided a visit to see Barlow, shopping at Hamburg and eating out sounded like a fun day.
    Barlow, a long time member of the club, had not been active for a few years and could no longer stay in her home in Harrison County. It was a great day for her and she was anxiously awaiting our visit.

  • (StatePoint) Those pesky cold sores on the lips and around the mouth always seem to pop up at the most inopportune times.
    Not only are cold sores painful, dealing with their appearance can be frustrating. But you’re not alone in dealing with this nuisance. In fact, more than half of the U.S. population carries the herpes simplex virus 1, the virus that causes cold sores, by the time they reach their 20s, according to the National Institutes of Health.

  • Many of you have participated in the Beef Quality Assurance program over the last 8-10 years. During that period we have shown repetition of materials and little or no learning once you have seen the materials. The program is going to change this year with a multi-level program called “Cattle Handling and Care.”

  • The Woman’s Club of Harrison County met Friday, Nov. 14 at Hospice of the Bluegrass for its monthly luncheon.  
    President Anna Ruth McLoney presided over the event. After welcoming members and guests, McLoney requested that a moment of silence be observed to commemorate Veterans’ Day and to honor those past and present who serve and sacrifice for freedom.  
    She led everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance.
    Bonnie Teater offered the blessing of the meal. The luncheon was prepared and served by local caterer Layne Tussey.
