  • * Cynthiana Democrat, April 30, 1914 - “The property owners on Pike Street between Walnut and Main, this newspaper is informed, are with few exceptions, heartily in favor of the suggestion made in this paper a short time ago, that the streets within the limits named be reconstructed of brick. The cost, compared to the benefit, would be small indeed. It is estimated that $3 per lineal foot would be the expense. The street would last twenty years and prove of immense advantage to that section of the business district.”’

  • This week I turned 57.
    I thought by this age I’d get the hang of the whole sainthood thing. The Protestant definition of a saint is simply a follower of Jesus.
    However, that doesn’t seem enough. There should be more to it than that. For instance, by now I should have at least the beginning buds of a halo or be able to say no to temptation eight out of 10 times — or two out of 10!
    But the truth is, I still struggle.

I can see mistletoe everywhere, too; driving down the interstate, walking in the park, sitting at a traffic light.  It is there if you look into the canopies of trees devoid of their leafy-ness.
    We are obviously not the first to notice round globs of greenery nestled in tree tops.
