  • Summer event will put local talent on display

    The Cynthiana Art Walk won’t be just a festival, it’s going to be an experience, said coordinator and Cynthiana Arts Council member Karey Smith.

    “There’s nothing better than walking on a downtown street on a summer night, laughing and having a good time,” Smith said.

    And that is what Smith is hoping citizens and visitors will experience on July 24 and 25 at the Cynthiana Art Walk.

    It’s Smith’s vision of that moment that has shaped the first Cynthiana Art Walk into two days of fun, entertainment and cultural experiences.

  • Build it and they will come

    I really don’t have an axe to grind. I know money is tight for everyone right now, including our local government entities, but for the life of me, I don’t understand why upgrading our local recreation facilities has taken such a back seat.

    How long has it been since we have had a public swimming pool? I know that the democratic process is deliberate and plodding, but if we go much slower with the promise of a new recreation facility on the Handy Farm, now know at Flat Run Veterans’ Park, we’ll actually go back in time.
