  • Speeding drivers kill family pets

    To the editor,

    I would just like to write and say I think it is awful how fast people drive on US 62 E. and how heartless people can be. On Sunday, Feb. 8 my 12 month old puppy had got out and was near the road. Someone hit him and didn’t even care enough to stop.

    He passed away. It was just like losing one of my children. He was our best friend. So I hope who ever did this to our family will please slow down. We miss our babe very much and this won’t bring him back but it may save another animals life. His name was Tank.

  • Cynthiana Christian Church and Judge Executive thanked for "first class manner"

    To the editor,

    I just wanted to thank everyone that worked so hard during the ice storm, especially the Cynthiana Christian Church.

    They made all those without power feel right at home and ran the shelter in a first class manner. Also, thanks to all those businesses that donated food, it was greatly appreciated and no one went without.

    County Judge Alex Barnett came into the shelter on a daily basis to keep everyone abreast of the restoration progress being made. Too bad we can’t clone Alex.

  • "Maybe 'like mother, like daughter' isn't so bad"

    Along with zillions of other people, my daughter, Alison, writes a blog.

    As The Neurotic Housewife, Alison writes about her life as a stay-at-home mom, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting to know this side of her in a horrifying sort of way.

    It’s like looking into a mirror.

    Oscar Wilde once said, “All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy.”

    As my girls grew up, I often taunted them with that. Oh yeah? You think I’m a fruitcake? Just wait until you get older and you find yourself doing the exact same things.

  • Cynthiana artist shares talent at MCTC-LVC

    Herbie Moore instructed students at Maysville Community and Technical College-Licking Valley Campus Monday evening during his Pen and Ink class. “Pen and ink is something that requires a steady hand,” Moore told the students. “Put so much in it that your eye goes wild just trying to figure it out... the viewer becomes obsessed in looking at all the things he can see...”

  • Shannon's hope is in Lord, not Congress

    To the editor:

    CNN newscasters announced this past week that 598,000 jobs were lost in January 2009 in the United States. One reporter said it is the worst job loss in 34 years. Another commented that our economy looks a lot like it did at the beginning of the Great Depression. Scary times, they all agreed.
