  • 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.

    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.

    We need to know how to describe the “things” that we find on our plant material so a proper diagnosis and treatment can follow.
    There are several different scenarios that can threaten our garden landscape.

  • 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.
