    Touted as the youngest ordained minister in history, 4-year-old Marjoe Gortner burst onto the Holy Ghost revival scene in the late 1940s.

  • Kearns family thanks family and friends for support

    To the editor,

    My family would like to thank all of you so very much for the flowers, cards, letters, food and also gave money when we lost our beloved daughter Danyell Beth Kearns on Jan. 6, 2009. It meant so much to us to see she had so many family and friends that loved her and we had so many family and friends to lean on. She will be missed so much but never forgotten.

    The money that was donated on her behalf will be used towards a headstone for her grave. This will be her last gift and it will come from all of you.

  • Swan swim

    Identified as young tundra swans, these two swans have taken up residence in Cynthiana’s Licking River near the ballpark. “I would say they’re lost from their flock...” said Jerry Jenkins, who noticed the swans in the river last week. Jenkins said the one-year-old swans were attracted to the vegetation in the river. “They’ll probably head up to Canada, or wherever they’re from when it gets warmer,” Jenkins said.

  • Congressman Davis offers assistance for transition to digital television

    On Feb. 17, 2009, all over-the-air broadcasters will switch from an analog to a digital format. Doing so will improve the quality and choice of television available in our homes, but it will require some adjustment. As your congressman, I hope to provide you with resources that will ease this transition.

    Currently, U.S. broadcast stations employ both analog and digital formats. However, in 2006, Congress passed legislation that would require all television stations to stop broadcasting on analog airwaves and begin broadcasting only in digital.
