  • We're responsible for our own potty mouths

    Sitting at the table behind my husband and me, a young woman at a local restaurant got my attention by dropping loud F-bombs.

    I know some Christians would have cleared their throats and announced, “Young lady, as a Christian I find your language offensive.”

    However, I tend to think that’s not helpful and makes Christians look like fragile weenies.

  • Commissioners ponder two annexation proposals

    A new ordinance for property owned by Mayor Jim Brown to be annexed into the city was heard at Dec. 9 city commission meeting.

    The new ordinance is now the second ordinance being considered to annex residential areas on Millersburg Pike into Cynthiana. Different from the first ordinance, the second ordinance annexes only property owned by Larry and Patricia Wiley and Jim and Kay Brown. Property owned by Dr. Derek Clarke and Doreen Wisener was removed from the second ordinance.

    City Attorney John Lair said Clarke and Wisener may not want to be annexed into city limits.
