  • Consumers advised to contact law enforcement, ag department to report tampering

    Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles reminds motorists to watch for signs of tampering on motor fuel pumps as credit card thieves gear up for the Fourth of July and the traffic-heavy summer travel season.
    “The Kentucky Department of Agriculture and the law-enforcement community are on the lookout for credit card skimmers, but we depend on you to be vigilant when you fill your gas tank,” Commissioner Quarles said. “If you suspect that a pump has been tampered with, please notify the attendant and call law enforcement or call the department.”

  • What a fantastic summer it has been!

    June didn’t disappoint and July is sure to be just as great.  
    Last week, Cynthiana Main Street had the pleasure of participating in The Longest Day of Play. It was great seeing all those kids enjoying outdoor games and activities.  
    With the generosity of A-Action Pest Control, Cynthiana Main Street gave away 10 bicycles that evening.  The Longest Day of Play is definitely a great event in our community and the organizers do a fantastic job each year.

  • Joy in the midst of sorrow

    By Don L. Powell, Gideons

    It’s Sunday morning; It’s Father’s Day and my wife and I are planning a full day of activities after church. The cell phone rings and the smiles turn to tears as we hear the news that our 18-year-old granddaughter has been killed by a drunk driver.
    Our world shatters like glass.
    Three months later as we prepare to enjoy our evening meal, we receive another phone call and learn that our 6-year-old grandson had been struck by a pickup truck and was not expected to live.

  • Grace Notes

    About two years ago, we became caretakers of two cats when our youngest daughter moved back home to rebuild her life.
    Last year, she moved in with a friend who has two dogs -- and an allergy to cats. So, we agreed to take care of Target and Mohawk until our daughter lives in a more cat-friendly space.
    They’re old cats, probably 13- or 14-years old, which is between 63 and 66 in human years.
    They take a lot of naps.
    They also sometimes barf on the carpet (but rarely on the tile), and they sometimes sneeze on the windows and the furniture.
