  • Candidate endorsements for the May 22 primary

    As the 2018 election draws near candidates will begin lining up their followers to write endorsement letters to the newspaper.
    We welcome those local letters. Local being the operative word here.
    We won’t accept letters of mass mailings. With e-mail so prevalent, it’s tougher to determine “mass mailings.” However, if someone sends a letter from Indianapolis endorsing one of our local hopefuls, it’s pretty obvious that it’s from a mailing list.

  • Viewpoint

    Hats off to all the firefighters and other first responders that were able to contain Sunday’s downtown fire to just one building.
    As close as most buildings are to one another in the downtown area, it is amazing that the huge blaze that ultimately destroyed the two-story building owned by Hoss and Paula Wilson, didn’t spread.
    Another talking-point that the fire might have brought up, are the unsightly, and even dangerous, power-lines/telephone-lines that line the streets throughout Cynthiana.

  • Winter settles in... commit to a new gardening year

    While the winter slowdown has not yet happened, it does seem to be around the corner.  Or is that just wishful thinking?  
    At any rate, winter is a time to regroup and plan for another year for the farm.
    We always do some serious infrastructure planning to improve our management of pastured chickens and grazing sheep.
    The goal is always about allowing for more organized rotational grazing and sorting. We have gradually built our infrastructure as we also gradually grown emotionally and intellectually with our farming practices.
