  • Property devaluation without representation

    To the editor;

    It appears that Cynthiana government officials have come up with a way to address a current cash flow problem at the expense of citizens who have no voice in the matter.

    United Propane Gas wants to purchase a lot in the Industrial Park on Connersville Road. However, their business requires heavy industrial zoning, so first they must obtain a zoning change.

  • Chapter 6 - Dog Gone Wild

    Already, I’d learned valuable lessons. Preparation is essential, shortcuts aren’t always shorter and rubber snakes look real! When I pulled back the cover and saw the creature, I almost fainted. Imagine my surprise when Chloe grabbed the snake, kissed it and asked if we could keep it! Score one for Chloe – joke on me! My first instinct was anger, but I realized it was a prank. I had learned one lesson long ago – to laugh at myself! Besides, I’d been the prankster before! I chuckled and wrapped the snake around my neck.

  • Crashing waves wash up fear

    One of the things I miss most about living in California is the Pacific Ocean.

    This past weekend I was at Cocoa Beach and although I thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the beach and watching the waves, when it comes to ocean waves, compared to the Pacific, the Atlantic wimps out.

    I grew up at the beach. Almost every Sunday afternoon my mom, dad, sister, brothers and I would head to Zuma Beach, near Malibu. Once there, I would race from the parking lot into the surf with the goal of “swimming past the waves.”

  • Turn on the lights

    We are at the time of year when time will be changing again before long. Daylight seems to be coming later, which means operators of vehicles need to use their lights when going to work and to school in the mornings. Vehicles with their headlights on are more visible than vehicles operating without headlights.

  • One man killed in Lafferty Pike wreck

    One man is dead after a Wednesday afternoon wreck.

    Kentucky State Police, the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department and the Harrison County Fire Department responded to the scene.
