  • Cattle roundup

    I had the urge at midnight for pancakes. Since there is no one here to wake up, I decided I really needed to treat myself with pancakes. All I had to do was add water to the pancake mix and put it in a skillet of hot oil.

    I poured out enough batter for three pancakes. They stuck to the skillet and rolled up in a ball when I tried to scrape them out with a spatula. I remembered reading that the oil is ready for the batter to be poured in the skillet when a drop of water dances in the oil. I poured in a drop of water. It exploded and sprayed grease all over the once spotless stove.

  • Middle ground is useless unless maintained

    On Saturday, Iee^drove to Mason County for a photo shoot.

    Unfortunately, Iee^missed the shoot, but since my wife and oldest daughter were with me, Iee^decided to stay up there for a bit.

    We drove all through downtown Maysville and crossed the old bridge into Ohio.

    Then we followed Hwy. 52 to the new bridge and crossed back into Kentucky. The road the new bridge is on goes to the Double-A highway, so thats where we wound up.

    Coming back toward this way, we went through Old Washington (the original Mason County settlement), making a few stops along the way.

  • Revitalization project will bring $1.7 million for new homes in west side development

    While third time may be a charm, city leaders are hoping four is their lucky number.

    For the fourth time since the 1997 flood ravaged the west side of Cynthiana and the adoption of a 2000 redevelopment plan, a grant has been sought to rebuild the area. The city is required to submit a pre-application outlining its plans for the funding. Then, at the mercy of the state, the city may be invited to submit an actual application.

    That is the stage at which the west side Community Development Plan is now.
