  • Let’s pull together

    The other day I got the opportunity to pull a fire truck with two friends. It was me, the county judge and the county sheriff.  
    We got up on the rope, grabbed on, and waited for the signal to go.  
    The signal came, we pulled, the driver let off the brake, and….  The truck started to roll the wrong way. So we pulled harder!
    The problem was that we were pulling uphill and the fire truck was just too heavy for the three of us to get moving in the direction we wanted to go.

  • BBQ Throwdown a huge success

    By Stephanie Burden
    Main Street Program Director
    Cynthiana Main Street’s Downtown BBQ Throwdown was a huge success and a lot of fun.
    Last Saturday as part of the Cynthiana Super Saturday, Main Street hosted our first bar-b-que cook off.  We had five local participants bring their best bar-b-que to town.
    Who knew we had so many delicious bar-b-ques in the county.
    The public got to “vote” for their favorite bar-b-que and it sure wasn’t any easy choice.  Ultimately, only the top three could win.

  • Moving forward, one step at a time

    By James Smith
    Mayor
    What a busy year the City of Cynthiana has had so far.  We have become the busiest little town in the state.  Everywhere I go, city officials from other cities are asking me how we’ve turned our city around so quickly.  
    I tell them, “We’ve got good people who love our town and are working hard to turn it around!”  

  • Peaceful protests have their place, even in Trump’s America

    For 27 years, every school day that I taught, began with either the National Anthem or the Pledge of Allegiance.
    The building principal, or his/her designee, came over the intercom and announced the National Anthem or led us in the Pledge of Allegiance.
    About half way through my teaching career, I began to have students refuse to stand for either of those.
