  • Giving every animal a chance

    He had me with the sad puppy eyes.

    But there was more.

    As if the sad puppy eyes were not enough, I could count the ribs that ran along his side. His pelvic bone was merely draped in the dirty blonde fur. There was no muscle or thickness to what should have been a stocky dog.

    He tried to wag his tail when I greeted him with a few morsels of kibble. It pained him to show even the slightest gratitude. He could barely walk across the yard and stumbled more than once.

    Yes, he had me with the sad puppy eyes.

  • Mattmiller has the personality, intelligence to get things done

    To the editor:

    Our local radio station (WCYN) conducted their weekly online survey last week and the question posed was, “Who do you think will be the next mayor of Cynthiana?” The two candidates were listed and the participants allowed to mark their choice. The result was that 74 percent of the respondents believed that Mark Mattmiller would be the next mayor. His opponent came in with 26 percent. This is a staggering majority, but it is not hard to understand. People believe that Mr. Mark Mattmiller will be mayor because they believe in him!

  • A vote for Slade is a ‘vote for proactive progress’ in Cynthiana

    To the editor:

  • Emergency workers thanked for assistance following wreck

    To the editor:

  • Moses is the perfect choice for Mayor of Cynthiana

    To the editor:

    In a few weeks the citizens of Cynthiana will have the chance to elect a new mayor and I’m writing this letter to explain why I think Steve Moses would be the perfect choice.

    Reason number one: Steve is selfless when it comes to giving to his community. One example is the work he did to restore homes after the flood of 1997. He did not do this for monetary gain or recognition, but instead because he wanted to help those in need.
