  • Cynthiana High School reunion to offer a walk down Memory Lane

    Cynthiana High School reunion activities planned for the weekend of June 26-27 promise a walk down Memory Lane; both figuratively and literally.
    Maximize each reunion’s offering with the following itinerary:
    Friday night dinner at Biancke’s kicks off the reuniting of anyone who wishes to join.
    Saturday morning, take a stroll up Main Street. The first store front decorated in Uniques where three commemorative boards are on display. The exhibit depicts life during the 1950s as experienced by the honored 60-year class.

  • No primaries would be better for Cynthiana

    The city of Owensboro is on to something.
    For years I have pondered the need for primary elections in non-partisan races. Particularly those for Cynthiana and Berry commission races.
    As it stands now, the mayor and commissioners are in a constant state of campaigning if there are enough candidates who have filed.
    If more than eight people file for the city commission seats, they have to run in a May primary to narrow the field to eight. Then in November, they run again in the general election to get the four officials.

  • Faith in Jesus, not perfection, leads to God

    The word translated “gospel” in our English Bibles is simply the Greek word for “good news.”
    Martin Luther, the great protestant reformer, struggled for a long time to see it as “good news.” When he was a young man near the age of 21, he was caught in a thunderstorm in which a bolt of lightning hit the ground near him.
    Fearing for his life, he cried out to a saint and vowed to become a monk and follow the Lord if his life was spared.
