  • Northside fifth graders bring history to life

    Fifty Northside Elementary fifth-graders brought history to life Friday afternoon.

    Part of Tonya Northcutt’s social studies curriculum, Northside fifth-graders were asked to pick a Civil War character they would become.

  • Donated Chamber building has been instrumental to downtown

    To the editor:

    The main goal of the Cynthiana-Harrison County Chamber of Commerce is to promote and help maintain economic growth and stability. As a Board of Directors, we were looking for a way to show leadership in this area and not just use the concept to generate dues. Last spring, Fifth Third bank made an offer to donate the old National Bank of Cynthiana building on the corner of Main and Pike and the parking lot behind it to the Chamber. The building had been empty for a few years and was deteriorating.

  • Different religions, but one belief that God will redeem His people

    I can honestly say it was the best gefilte fish I ever ate, mainly because I’d never eaten any before.

    “Gefilte” sounds tastier than “ground up raw fish mixed with eggs, onions and matzoh meal then stuffed into the skin of a de-boned fish and poached.”

    I ate it as part of a Passover Seder as a guest of Congregation Beth Sholom Jewish Synagogue in Beverly Hills, Fla.
