  • Live versus live-cut for Christmas

    Live or live-cut … that is the question for this year’s holiday tradition of decorating an evergreen indoors for Christmas.

    You may think that you are being a better environmental steward by purchasing a live tree; not necessarily. Live-cut Christmas trees are a 100 percent renewable resource that is reusable, recyclable and biodegradable. They are an American product, farms employ approximately 100,000 people each year; and one acre of planted Christmas trees provides the daily oxygen requirement for 18 people.

  • Public service should not mean self-service

    On Monday morning, I turned in my notice to resign as news writer here at The Cynthiana Democrat.

    Next Friday, Nov. 21, will be my last day.

    It was a hard decision, I love this job and the people I’ve worked with over the past five (well, almost five) years. But as my downtown studio grows, I find balancing the two jobs impossible.

    The people of Cynthiana have responded well to my work and I’m not able to serve them to my best ability with things as they have been.

    Faulkner returns to hardwood

    for APSU

    2006 HCHS graduate Brooke Faulkner has returned to the basketball court after sitting out a transfer year and has played well in her two games at Austin Peay State University. She was cleared to play last week and has played in two of APSU’s games.

    Faulkner transferred to APSU after playing one year at Western Kentucky University. She will have three years of varsity eligibility remaining for the Governors after being granted an injury red shirt year by the NCAA.

  • Mentor paves the way for new reporter

    It’s hard to sit at this desk and write and not think about the person who used to sit at this desk and write.

    I’ve been blessed to acquire many journalism mentors. And while I studied journalism at Western Kentucky University, most of my true education took place in the same room I now consider my office.

    While I’m so excited to work for the paper I called home for many summers and a winter, it’s also a little sad. My hire was only brought about because of Donald Richie’s resignation.

  • HCHS grad performs in Transylvania dinner theater
