  • KSP Post 6 Dry Ridge welcomes five new supervisors

    KSP Post 6 Dry Ridge Welcomes five New Supervisors 

    Sgt. Toby Gardner, a 16-year veteran of the Kentucky State Police, was promoted to sergeant on Sept. 1, 2016, and transferred from Morehead, Post 8 to Dry Ridge, Post 6. 

    He is a resident of Morehead, and attended Rowen County High School. He went on to attend Morehead State University where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in University Studies. 

  • Trees from seeds can be a challenge

    Some plants are prolific; some are not.  Dandelion seed floats through the air and disperses far and wide in spring or summer; hundreds of tiny seeds burst from the spent blooms of cleome as a sphinx moth feeds at dusk.   Woody plants can be a bit more elusive.  I have never seen a Serbian spruce spring forth from a fallen cone nor an apple tree emerge from rotten fruit beneath its canopy.  Starting woody plants from seed can be tricky.

  • Information needed on WW I veteran

    French historian and World War I expert Gilles Lagin is seeking information on Russell Story Rankin, a Great War veteran who is buried in Battle Grove Cemetary.

    Lagin is in the process of completing a film documentary and book with Rankin playing a prominent role.

    Cynthiana resident Mike Hudgins happened upon some information concerning Rankin and forwarded that to Lagin, who took an interest in Rankins WW I exploits.

  • Want to learn basic embroidery?

    Basic embroidery is going to be taught on Oct. 12 at 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. at the Harrison County Extension Office. There is no charge for the class. If you are interested in learning to embroider and have never tried it before, or if you need a refresher course, this is your opportunity. You will need to bring with you a 7” embroidery hoop, embroidery needles and a pair of scissors. If enough interest is shown in this class, an advanced class will be offered at a later date.

  • Fall is here and our city is ready!

    Fall is here and our City is looking great. Mums have been planted and fodder shocks will be going up soon (possibly by the time this article prints). 

    October is another busy month for Cynthiana. Ghost walks, Thriller on Main, Fright on Pike and ArtOberFest. 

    I’m sure there are more events than I’ve listed, but WOW! October will be fun.
