  • Legislative committees in full-swing; bills begin to gain ground

    We have officially entered week two of the General Assembly’s regular session as legislation continues to be filed, debated and passed out of committees and a $20 billion budget and road plan is being framed with input from parties all across Kentucky.

  • Viewpoint

    Since the beginning of time, or close to it, the Cynthiana City Commission meetings have been held on the second floor of City Hall. And 99 percent of the time that’s fine.
    However, it’s not handicapped accessible. If someone wanted to attend a meeting of the commission and he or she could not climb the stairs, the city had to know in advance so it could make arrangements to have the meeting elsewhere.

  • The Bible is God’s side of the conversation

    You know, we should read our Bibles. You probably even started this year with good intentions of reading it each day or at least a little more regular. But with so many distractions, interruptions, demands and activities that impact our day it makes it hard to sit down and read God’s Word.
    Reading the Bible is a struggle for most of us, but opening God’s Word and taking time to listen and understand what God has to say is one of the most important blessings we have to build that relationship with Him.

  • Church News

    Just a reminder that City on a Hill Church is no longer meeting at the old Berry Lumber Co. Building. We are now holding services every Sunday in the Community room at the Cynthiana-Harrison County Public Library.
    Connect time is 9-9:45 a.m. for some recreation and Bible Study for our youth with the youth Pastor. Adults will also meet for fellowship in the community room at these times. Service will begin at 10 a.m. with live worship. Come as you are and worship with us.

  • Grace Notes

    It’s been a while since my neighbor lady has wreaked havoc on my life.
    However, this past week she made up for lost time.
    To bring you up to speed on who my neighbor lady is: She’s my evil twin, my alter ego, an overbearing, intrusive buttinsky mother who has trouble remembering that once the umbilical cord is cut moments after birth, it should not and cannot ever be reattached and it is futile and foolish to even try -- although she’s been trying for more than 40 years.

  • Tough time for writing

    The past few weeks each year are always a hard time for me to write an article, but it has been especially hard this year.
    My NFL boycott has robbed me of my Sunday afternoon past time and I will not write about pro games that I have not seen. Too much opinion versus facts in others writings and musings about games.
    There are few people that just tell it like it is and do not add personal prejudices into their dialogue. The NFL is not the only distraction this year during the time right after Christmas.

    The weather finally allowed the Powell County Lady Pirates to make it to the Monticello Heights Gym on the Hilltop Wednesday to face the Harrison County Fillies. 
    The game was scheduled for Monday but the two teams and the weather could not get together until Wednesday evening following the Senior Night activities for the Harrison County wrestling team. 
    The game was close for three quarters though the Fillies did not trail after late in the first period.
