  • Youth leagues beginning to wrap up regular season

    As the “old lefthander” Joe Nuxhall would say the youth league season at River Road Park is rounding third and heading for home.  
    According to the season records posted on the web site all of the Little League teams have played at least 10 games of the season as it winds down to its grand finale.  
    The Kiwanis Club leads the Little League with an outstanding 10-1 record with some tough games remaining with the other top contenders, the Lions (11-3) and the Reds (10-3).  

  • Get to know your beneficial insects

    Before you squish consider the next generation of beneficial insects that you may be eliminating from your garden.  
    We have come to look at all insects as bad, which is far from the truth. We delight over butterflies, but likely kill many while in the caterpillar stage; we love lady beetles, but the nymph stage looks a little scary; and we swat and spray every fly, wasp and bee in ear-shot.
    One of the challenges we face when it comes to beneficial insects is that we have a hard time distinguishing between the good guys and the true pests.

  • Mike’s Minute

    When I started to write for The Cynthiana Democrat the second time I remembered the long Tuesday nights at the newspaper office and the traveling to games and getting info from the coaches when I couldn’t be there.  
    I drove poor Randy Green crazy with my opinions and my way of interjecting them into the stories in some cases.  He was concerned that my tendency to speak my mind or opinion would get everyone into hot water.
