  • * Cynthiana Democrat, Feb. 22, 1945 -- “Articles of Incorporation of the ‘Cynthiana Publishing Company’ were filed here in the office of County Clerk Bill King last Friday and sent to the Secretary of State. It is the purpose of the corporation to take over and continue the operation of The Cynthiana Democrat and The Log Cabin, Cynthiana’s well known weekly newspapers, to do a general job printing business and to deal in stationery and office supplies.”

  • Spring break from teaching at UofL falls conveniently during the week of St. Patrick’s Day, which is also my target date for planting onions and potatoes.  
    I typically manage a mid-March planting, but the condition of the soil has held me up a bit this year.
    I will not start digging until the soil dries out and is considered workable.
    While we wait for that, select potato varieties that complement the way you cook.

  • The Harrison County Homemakers select a country to study each year. This year they chose to study the Philippines. The International Dinner committee has scheduled the dinner for Friday, March 28 at 6 p.m. at the Harrison County Extension Office.
    Josh Shepherd, a Cynthiana resident who once lived in the Philippines, will be the guest speaker.  The public is welcome to attend this dinner and hear about Josh’s experiences and the culture and people of this country. Traditional Filipino cuisine will be served.

  • From time to time I see a skunk meandering around the farm during the day, it’s unusual, however.  
    A few years back there was one that was sniffing about under some pines in the lower pasture and it was evident from its movements and from its  awareness  (or lack thereof) of its surroundings that this creature knew it had the advantage.  
    Their eyesight is poor so sneaking up on him to get a photograph was possible but it made me realize that startling a skunk is probably not a good idea.
