  • Cynthiana..’The Little Town That Could’

    Last week I took a much need hiatus to Florida and it gave me time to let the entirety of The Walking Dead Day sink in.  

    Two months ago, I posted a Facebook post asking for Walking Dead super fans to help with a top secret project.  

    I’m not sure my friends quite knew what they were getting into, but they committed to the very end. 

    I can remember sitting in the Chamber at that first meeting, not really sure how big the event would be.

    This is no doubt one of the busiest times of the year.

    There is much to look forward to in the coming weeks. So before you complain that there is nothing to do in Cynthiana, check out some of the things coming our way.

    This weekend is something new and will bring some beautiful motorcycles to our streets.

    It’s a first-ever Bike Night, and is being offered as a precursor to Cynthiana’s Rod Run, which is the following weekend, Saturday, Aug. 27.

  • How will you be remembered?

    What kind of person are you? When you pass away, how will you be remembered by those who knew you? 

    A couple of weeks ago, my family returned to Texas because I was asked to conduct the memorial service of one of our former church members there. Glen Milham passed away in the early hours of Aug. 1, the very day of his 89th birthday. 

  • Hushing Jesus up


    Years ago I visited with a woman who sold biblical toys, action figures of Bible characters like Moses, David and Goliath and Jesus.

    The Jesus doll, about twice the size of a G.I. Joe, had movable fingers and joints and if you pressed a button on Jesus’ back he talked.

    As the woman demonstrated, Jesus started reciting Bible verses -- and wouldn’t stop.

    Members of Silas Baptist Church invites everyone to visit Silas on Sunday, Aug. 28, at 6 p.m. to hear the religious group CrossTithes. The men of CrossTithes are best summed up by their motto: “Simple men. Simple music. An Awesome God!” Devoted to simple service, they believe that God doesn’t call us to do great things, He calls us to do things...and He’ll make them great.

    The Harrison County soccer Breds came out over confident in Tuesday’s season opener with Mason County and paid the price. Similar to last year’s district match up, the Royals were not to be taken lightly.

    Early in the match, the fleet-footed Mason County forwards took advantage of Harrison County defender errors and were one-on-one with goal keeper Max Ferguson.
