  • 'Maybe a broken heart is God’s gifts to us'

    Those who know me know my two grand passions: cake with buttercream frosting and the “Gilmore Girls.”

    Currently, I’m watching season two on DVD.

    For those who don’t know about the “Gilmore Girls,” it’s a now-canceled TV series about a single mother and her teenage daughter who live in Stars Hollow, a quirky little town outside Hartford, Conn. The mother, Lorelai Gilmore, is young, gorgeous, witty, talks a mile a minute, loves movies and TV and eats like a horse.

  • Museum Grist Mill Day cancelled

    To the editor,

    A much anticipated and appreciated Cynthiana event, Museum Grist Mill Day, will not be held this year. Due to family illness, the William Kelly family will be unable to host this community activity.

    Some 12 years ago, Bob Hyatt and William Kelly and their wives initiated Grist Mill Day to support the Cynthiana-Harrison County Museum. The festivities were enjoyed by many and sizable donations were given to the museum.

  • Breds edge Camels in extras

    The Harrison County Thorobreds earned what could be the kind of win that just may catapult them into another long post-season run on Tuesday night in Northern Kentucky.

    With less than one week until district tournament play begins, Harrison County scored twice in the top of the eighth inning and knocked off home-standing Campbell County, 7-5. It was the Breds second win in a row, in a string of difficult regular-season ending games.

  • Tomato 101, for beginners and advanced gardeners

    My annual “Tomato 101” is for beginners and advanced gardeners alike. There are many assumptions about the tomato that sometimes get passed on by the most well-meaning aficionado. 

    I take my tomatoes seriously and have devised a nearly perfect plan over the years.

    When it comes to spring fever the tomato is most abused, most people still plant too early. 

    First, wait until our frost-free date (on average this is May 10; give or take a week depending on where you are located).
