  • Sidewalk plan concerns business owner

    Heather Ladick, owner of Zeppelin Threads, addressed the Cynthiana City Commission at Tuesday evening’s meeting.

    Ladick told commissioners that she was informed Tuesday morning that the sidewalk in front of her Main Street home and business would be torn out Wednesday.

    “I was immediately alarmed because this was the first time I had heard of any progress of this project,” Ladick said. “As a private property owner on Main Street, one who also has a business there, my head started swimming with the impact of having my sidewalk torn up...”

  • Kindness is key to supporting those suffering with loss

    “Call us if you need anything…” How often is this phrase heard at a funeral visitation? Although well intended, it really rings of half-hearted efforts of false support.

    * Log Cabin, Nov. 11, 1905 - “There doubtless was a large Methodist membership in 1818 when Richard Henderson deeded the site of the present building to the trustees, for in 1820 a brick building was completed with a seating capacity of about 500. The building burned in 1844 and was replaced by a smaller edifice, seating probably about 250 persons. A third building, seating probably 350, was dedicated in 1870, and remained until the present year when it was supplanted by the beautiful structure which is now near completion.”

    Water is a vital part of our lives; so it’s no surprise that it is also a big business. The big debate is whether tap or bottled water is better for you. The short answer is each has benefits.

    However, sales of bottled water have tripled over the last 10 years. Some believe this is due to marketing ploys; it’s hard to tell if it really is better for you than just plain tap water. In fact, 25 percent of bottled water is taken directly from the same reservoirs where we get our tap water.
