  • Viaduct construction to begin soon

    The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced last week that construction of the US 27 bridge replacement and its approaches over the CSX Railroad in Cynthiana will begin soon, according to a press release.

    Rob Hans, chief district engineer for KYTC District 6 said, “The new bridge and approaches are being constructed to replace the existing substandard and load restricted bridge.

  • Church’s size doesn’t measure Jesus’ presence

    I had come for the 10:30 a.m. worship service, the first one in Cornerstone Baptist Church’s new ministry campus in Inverness, Fla.

    They had set out 800 chairs, but by 10:30, more than 1,000 people had shown up.

    The pastor opened the service by singing, “The hand of our God is on this place.”

  • County’s “nature preserve” isn’t money well spent

    To the editor:

    There it is - the good news that Harrison County will be using taxpayer money to buy another farm. I am overjoyed to hear that a large sum of money will be going to a select few because another article in the same paper sadly proclaimed that unemployment hit 12 percent. This is a red-letter day! I am happy to see this new leadership continue the practice of buying farms/properties to line the pockets of a few individuals.

  • Flu level reaches 'widespread'

    According to a press release from the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Kentucky’s flu level has been raised from ‘regional’ to ‘widespread.’

    “People just need to take the same precautions they would with regular flu,” WEDCO public health director Crystal Caudill said.

    Caudill said those individuals experiencing flu-like symptoms are more than likely suffering from H1N1, formerly referred to as the swine flu.

  • Cool temperatures initiate bloom

    How about this weather? I am anticipating a very good orchid season coming up because our temperatures have been so mild lately, especially with night time temperatures dipping into the 50s already. These cool nights are one part of the puzzle in order to get some plants to bloom in the winter indoors.

    When attempting to grow tropical plants, we are met with the challenge of mimicking their native habitat, which is difficult inside our homes. We can allow Mother Nature to take care of some of this, outside, for now.
