  • Christmas parade is Saturday

    Santa Claus will be coming to town this Saturday.

    The annual Christmas parade will make its way through downtown Cynthiana beginning at 4 p.m.

    Cynthiana Police Chief Ray Johnson said River Road will be closed from 2:30 p.m. until the end of the parade.

    Before we know it, 2009 will come to a close. We’ll ring in a new year and say goodbye to what has been.

    Some people may describe 2009 as momentous. For others it was just another 12 months. However you look upon the last four seasons, I hope you looked at some of it through a camera’s lens.

    Our new publication will come with the close of the year. It will be our first Yearbook, and quite honestly, if we don’t get some photographs from our readers, it will likely be our last yearbook.
