  • Economy status leaves Food Pantry shelves depleted, bare

    To the editor:

    This is a Food Pantry update to everyone in Cynthiana and Harrison County.

    The Pantry has been doing well this spring and summer with the kindness of many of our churches and individuals that have shared with us money and food. Many have shared fresh vegetables from their gardens and this has really helped and the people really appreciated them.

  • Signup for new program ends in September

  • Skateboarders need somewhere to go, says Cynthiana resident

    To the editor:

    This past spring, the Recreation Department Board saw fit to remove the skate park from its River Road location - accusing skaters of breaking rules like dress code, littering and foul language. Although the city ordered a new location be found, still no skate park can be found in Cynthiana. I see we got a new picnic/deck area built at the River Road Park. Maybe that frivolous project could have been delayed a while in order to provide a place for dozens of kids in this town to get the exercise they need.
