  • I heard the weather man mention Indian summer last night and it got me thinking about this old print my father had hanging in his office.  
    The two images were of a young man and his grandfather around a small bonfire; as the scene turns to night the smoke that arose from the fire reveals an image of dancing American Indians, the hay stacks in the distance become teepees and the verse that accompanies the print reads like a tale from a not so enlightened time: “Yep, sonny, this is sure enough Injun summer. Don’t know what that is, I reckon, do you?”

  • * Cynthiana Democrat, March 2, 1944 -- “The formal opening to the public of the National Bank of Cynthiana building, recently remodeled after it had burned in a destructive fire the latter part of August, was held Saturday evening. Hundreds of people visited the beautiful banking house where they were greeted by bank officials and personnel of the institution. Dr. Bob Loftin’s ‘Commanders’ furnished beautiful music for the occasion. Solos were by J. C. Watkins and Carolyn Stevens.”
