    How many people do you know who have held the same job for 40 years?
    Of those, how many have the same vigor and love of that job today, that they had when they started?
    Dr. Larry Bishop is a winner in both of those categories.
    This month, “Bish”, as he is better known to his flock, will celebrate 40 years as the minister of the Cynthiana Christian Church (Disciples of Christ.)

    The first continent-wide  solar eclipse, exclusively in the US, since 1776 will take place on Monday afternoon, Aug. 21.
    Even though Cynthiana and Harrison County is well north of the “path of totality,” local residents can still expect anywhere from 91-96 percent coverage of the sun during the Aug. 21 solar eclipse.

    Two young men lost their lives in a single-vehicle accident in Pendleton County early Sunday morning.
    Issac Chambers, 26, Cynthiana, and Matthew Ramsey, 27, Pendleton County, were killed when Chambers apparently lost control of his vehicle in a curve on the Old LLL Highway, struck a tree then traveled backward into a fence and caught fire.
    Pendleton County Sheriff’s Deputy Todd Dennie said the vehicle was only about eight feet from the roadway.

    Harrison County schools have followed suit with several other school districts around the state and have canceled classes on Aug. 21, the day of the solar eclipse.
    I don’t have an issue with our local district taking that action, but I don’t like its reasoning.
    In its official press release, the school district said, “Student safety was the deciding factor in closing school for this event, since NASA and other scientific experts warn of possible eye damage if the sun is viewed improperly during the eclipse.”

    In less than two weeks, downtown Cynthiana will be transformed into a massive parking lot for some of the most beautiful and outrageous automobiles.
    The Cynthiana Rod Run was the brain child of local car enthusiast Jerry Adams. Adams said a few years ago at a Cynthiana City Commission that he loved Cynthiana and wanted to do this for the community.
    It has to be so.
    There is so much work behind the scenes to put on something of this class and size.
