Today's Features

  • For many years, people in Cynthiana have enjoyed the Hospice of the Bluegrass Church on Church event. This year the Event Committee has decided to try something new and hope everyone will once again come out to have fun while supporting Hospice care in the community.

  • * Cynthiana Democrat, Nov. 6, 1969 -- “Looking Back” by Mary Renaker - As we think of Cynthiana now and Cynthiana in the Twenties, we miss two of the busy centers then; the Crown Jewel and Crescent Milling Companies. The Crescent Mill was located just where Southern States stands. The Crown Jewel was back of what is now Harrison Motor. At this season of the year just after threshing time, farmers were hauling in wheat to be sold or exchanged for flour, which was made at both mills.

  • I have my orders placed for onion sets and seed potatoes along with some of my favorite summer crops that will be directly seeded in the garden once the temperatures really warm … I can barely stand the wait.  
    I have just seeded out several trays of early season vegetables that like a cool start to the season. Kale, broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts are just beginning to push through the light potting mix.
    My set up is not elaborate; it basically consists of a kit that includes a plastic dome that fits over a seed tray and pan.  

  • Discover the beauty of Natural Bridge State Resort Park on one or more naturalist-led guided hikes in the 2014 Natural Bridge Trail Trek Series that starts Saturday, March 22.
    Complete all five guided hikes (over 25 miles) in this series and you will have hiked all of the trails at Natural Bridge State Resort Park. Those who complete all five treks will receive a Natural Bridge T-shirt and will have truly experienced the rugged cliff line, rock shelters, arches, plants, and animals at the park.

  • CENTRAL CHRISTIAN
    The Team Story fund raiser that was planned for March 2 at Central Christian Church, Second and Riggs, was canceled due to the weather.  The event has been rescheduled for Sunday, March 9.

  • These past few weeks I have been diligently preparing for Lent.
    How, you ask?
    Well, two weeks ago I found a pair of stone-colored flats online at 30 percent off and bought them. And today I bought a pair of white pants that were on sale (plus I used a $10 off coupon).
    Even though it’s only early March and I have several or five pairs of white pants in my closet, they are all Capri-length and these are ankle-length, which is more suited to this time of year, or so I am telling myself.

  • Everyone needs to change. The best kind of change occurs inside us rather than outside.

  • Have you heard about the Baptist White Lie cake?
    Don’t know if this is a true story or not, but it seems that Alice Grayson of Tuscaloosa, Ala., had signed up to bake an angel food cake for the Baptist Church Ladies’ Group bake sale — Alice was known for her light, fluffy, perfect angel food cakes.
