  • Cynthiana resident encourages town to focus on positives

    To the editor:

    Recently there have been some articles on the state of the economy in Cynthiana and negative aspects of our community. We are all pretty good at voicing what’s wrong with Cynthiana. Ask anyone and you will get a laundry list of problems, ending with the comment ‘Someone ought to do something,’ or possibly posing the question, ‘Why doesn’t Someone do something?’

    Just for a change, why don’t we turn the question around and ask “What’s good about Cynthiana?” and “What should Someone do?”
