  • Let the replanting begin

    Ample rainfall and mild temperatures this year means we can get planting sooner then later. Sure, we plant trees all year round as long as we can get the shovel in the ground but normally planting this time results I a little stress due to high heat and lots of water hauling. Finally an easy year.

  • Signup deadline nears for ACRE, DCP programs

    The Farm Service Agency in Kentucky reminds producers of the deadlines for enrolling in the new Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) Program or the Direct and Counter-Cyclical Program (DCP). The deadline to enroll in ACRE or DCP for 2009 is Aug. 14, 2009.

    ACRE is an innovative alternative to the traditional farm safety net, but this new program comes with a complex signup process. Producers should contact their local office to set up appointments well before the Aug. 14, 2009 deadline.

    * Cynthiana Democrat, March 18, 1909 - “Wednesday, Feb. 24, 1909, Cynthiana was practically cut off from all points in the country, except those reached by rail. The small streams overflowed everywhere, flooding the turnpikes and making them impassable at a number of points. Man to Claysville and intervening places was delayed from the preceding Saturday until Thursday. AD traffic was blocked.”

  • Cemetery should be named ‘Pitiful Grove Cemetery’

    To the editor:

  • Better care is needed at Berry’s Pythian Grove Cemetery

    To the editor:

    On July 21, 2009, I received calls to observe the condition of Pythian Grove Cemetery in Berry. I came in on Lafferty Pike and couldn’t see much wrong until I turned into the cemetery and my heart melted. I could not believe what I saw. I brought my camera to take pictures. In my view were weeds, milk weeds (one over six feet tall) and a view I have never seen before in this cemetery. As I went further, the weeds covered the names on the headstones, went over my ankles and some went over my knees. Why?

  • County resident impressed with commission candidates

    To the editor:

    The July 2, 2009 issue of The Cynthiana Democrat had an interesting article about the 13 letters of intent from citizens interested in filling the recently vacated Commissioner of Public Utilities position.

     I live in the county so I don’t really have a “vote” on this issue, but on the other hand, I am concerned about Cynthiana growing and improving, so I wanted to offer some thoughts about the article.
