  • * Cynthiana Democrat, Feb. 23, 1928 -- (Cromwell’s Comments) - “In 1878, J. A. Brown purchased what was then known as the ‘Broadwell’ home, later known as the Elks’ Home, now the site of several beautiful residences (corner of Pike Street, Clifton Road). At that time it was an ideal location for that which it afterwards became, ‘Harrison Female College’ as the old residence had many rooms of ample size and the surrounding grounds were spacious and well shaded.”

  • I absolutely do not approve of killing bees. In fact, we are in a bit of a crisis with a diminishing population with the suspected cause being the use of pesticides, notably neonicotinoids. I do not fear bees, I am not allergic, and I can happily co-exist…..except that they are eating my house! Or, rather they are tunneling into the wood that makes up my house so they can lay eggs and have lots of babies.
