  • Each May for the last five years, hopeful singers in Cynthiana have been competing for the title of Cynthiana Idol.  
    Each year, one singer comes out on top of the grueling five-round competition that is part judges’ scores and part audience vote.  
    The five winners have very unique styles and each have an incredibly supportive fanbase.  
    So on Jan. 19, when all five previous winners brought their best to the stage of the Rohs Opera House for a one-night showdown, downtown Cynthiana was alive with energy and excitement.  

  • In what is becoming an annual tradition in downtown Cynthiana, A.R. Gurney’s touching drama, Love Letters, will once again be performed at the Rohs Opera House.  
    On Feb. 8, local couple Jody and Carolyn Hendricks will take the roles of Melissa Gardner and Andrew Ladd in this Pulitzer Prize nominated play.  
    Love Letters centers on just two characters, Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III.

  • In a time when we all seek advice from experts, it is not only important to know what plants you have, but also to understand the nomenclature of symptoms caused by insect and disease problems.  
    “I’ve got this thing on my wacha-ma-call-it” won’t get you very far with a Google search or in person.

  • Twenty years ago this year we had a devastating storm blow through our area that we call the No-Name Storm.
    I hadn’t thought about it in a while, but the other day a woman came into the newspaper office and mentioned it. She still lives in one of the hardest hit areas.
    When she left, I started thinking about that storm and its aftermath. For many people around here it was our area’s Hurricane Sandy or a mini Hurricane Katrina, blowing in and surprising everyone, wreaking havoc.

  • It’s hard to believe that we are beginning to plan for the 2013 crop year. Following a summer of super-hot temperatures and limited rainfall, it sure would be nice to enjoy a seasonable year.
    This past season tobacco seems to be a growing interest for several producers in our county. Prices have been good and those producing the crop seem to be very consistent. Because of this we will have a tobacco production meeting on Monday, Jan. 28 at the Harrison County Extension Center. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.
