  • Cynthiana resident encourages town to focus on positives

    To the editor:

    Recently there have been some articles on the state of the economy in Cynthiana and negative aspects of our community. We are all pretty good at voicing what’s wrong with Cynthiana.

    Just for a change, why don’t we turn the question around and ask “What’s good about Cynthiana?” and “What should Someone do?”
