  • 'Maybe a broken heart is God’s gifts to us'

    Those who know me know my two grand passions: cake with buttercream frosting and the “Gilmore Girls.”

    Currently, I’m watching season two on DVD.

    For those who don’t know about the “Gilmore Girls,” it’s a now-canceled TV series about a single mother and her teenage daughter who live in Stars Hollow, a quirky little town outside Hartford, Conn. The mother, Lorelai Gilmore, is young, gorgeous, witty, talks a mile a minute, loves movies and TV and eats like a horse.

  • Museum Grist Mill Day cancelled

    To the editor,

    A much anticipated and appreciated Cynthiana event, Museum Grist Mill Day, will not be held this year. Due to family illness, the William Kelly family will be unable to host this community activity.

    Some 12 years ago, Bob Hyatt and William Kelly and their wives initiated Grist Mill Day to support the Cynthiana-Harrison County Museum. The festivities were enjoyed by many and sizable donations were given to the museum.
