  • Cynthiana is bustling with activities in August, September

    Wow! What a fantastic weekend it was in Cynthiana. 

    Kudos to Tomi Clifford and her committee for pulling together The Walking Dead Day.  I hope everyone enjoyed seeing our streets full of visitors and zombies.  

    So many great events are happening in our small town and it is exciting! 

    Up next, Cynthiana Rod Run Events. This will be the fifth year for the Cynthiana Rod Run.

    There’s entirely too much credit to be handed out, to entirely too many people, for the resounding success that was The Walking Dead Day, last Saturday.

    So, instead of making the mistake of mentioning anyone’s name, for fear of leaving out someone who is deserving, let’s just say “congratulations” to Cynthiana!

    Old Girl, you’re on your way back, if you ever left.

  • Kennedy drafts an Open letter to God

    Dear God,

    As you know, last Sunday morning I posted the following on Facebook:

    “Dear God,

    I’m trying to control the universe as best I can, but I think I’m failing at it. It might be time for me to step aside and let you take over -- I hear you laughing! -- but I’m not sure I know how to do that, seeing as I’ve been doing this for so long.

    “So, please be patient with me and don’t smite me with boils or ugly hair.
