Today's Features

  • The Sunrise Homemaker Club traveled to Lexington, Ky. on June 9 to visit Peggy Barlow at the Willows Assisted Living Center. Our Club usually did an end of year trip and decided a visit to see Barlow, shopping at Hamburg and eating out sounded like a fun day.
    Barlow, a long time member of the club, had not been active for a few years and could no longer stay in her home in Harrison County. It was a great day for her and she was anxiously awaiting our visit.

  • (StatePoint) Those pesky cold sores on the lips and around the mouth always seem to pop up at the most inopportune times.
    Not only are cold sores painful, dealing with their appearance can be frustrating. But you’re not alone in dealing with this nuisance. In fact, more than half of the U.S. population carries the herpes simplex virus 1, the virus that causes cold sores, by the time they reach their 20s, according to the National Institutes of Health.

  • Many of you have participated in the Beef Quality Assurance program over the last 8-10 years. During that period we have shown repetition of materials and little or no learning once you have seen the materials. The program is going to change this year with a multi-level program called “Cattle Handling and Care.”

  • The Woman’s Club of Harrison County met Friday, Nov. 14 at Hospice of the Bluegrass for its monthly luncheon.  
    President Anna Ruth McLoney presided over the event. After welcoming members and guests, McLoney requested that a moment of silence be observed to commemorate Veterans’ Day and to honor those past and present who serve and sacrifice for freedom.  
    She led everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance.
    Bonnie Teater offered the blessing of the meal. The luncheon was prepared and served by local caterer Layne Tussey.  

  • Bet you don’t know you can create a beautiful oil painting. In fact, if asked most of us would say we could not do this. But you can.
    MCTC/Licking Valley Campus Workforce Solutions is offering a painting class on Saturday, Dec. 6 from 2-4:30 p.m. in Harrison Square that will do this very thing. It is amazing,  Dianne Young, artist residing in Millersburg, Ky., teaches the class and the results are beautiful, every time. What a gift this would make that person who is hard to buy for. The cost of the class is $25.

  • The Office of The Cynthiana Democrat and The Harrison Shopper will be closed Thursday, Nov. 27 and Friday, Nov. 28 in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. The office will reopen Monday, Dec. 1 at 8:30 a.m.

  • It was this time last year I lost my sister to suicide as I was entering my first holiday season without my dad.

  • Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy has been writing an annual psalm of thanksgiving since 1999 when she first started writing her column.
    Dear God,
    Every year at this time I sit down to compose a psalm of thanksgiving, my thanks and gratitude to you for another year that has passed.
