  • Excited about a new season of Game of Thrones!

     Regardless of what banner you fly within the world of Westeros, the time has come to return to the magical land once more.
     Game of Thrones Season 7 aired it’s first episode on July 27th, and it was one Hell of a way to kick off a season. Last seasons conclusion left fans with a decent idea of where the story would be picking up upon it’s return, but the GOT show runners pulled off one of the most impactful season premieres of any show I’ve ever seen.

  • Viewpoint

    I am so stinkin’ proud of Cynthiana.
    Tuesday’s Joe B. Hall mural reveal was a wonderful showing of how Cynthiana and Harrison County people want to be included in this wonderful resurgence.
    I’m not a great guestimator as far as attendance at the reveal, but my best estimate is 300 or more.

  • God is able to be trusted

    In today’s world, there is a deceptive philosophy that says that no one can be trusted. This philosophy forces humanity to be skeptical of business owners, politicians, neighbors, family members, spouses, the medical field, etc.  This list could go on and on so that before it’s all said and done, we are made to believe that the whole world is out to get us, that no one is honest, and that survival depends solely upon our own instincts.  

  • Grace Notes

    The news was horrific and sordid: Church staff member arrested for a sexually salacious crime.
    Sadly commonplace, it happens all over the U.S. -- you just never expect it to happen to your church.
    But last week, it happened to mine when our former worship director was arrested and charged with multiple sex-related crimes against minors.
    A local sheriff’s detective called him a “textbook predator.”
    We as a church loved him -- still love him. And we as a church abhor what he has done.

    A Harrison County Sheriff’s Deputy asked the Cynthiana City Commission to look into options to slow traffic on Bridge Street.
    Dean Hutchison, who lives on Bridge Street at the Bridge and Webster intersection, said a traffic hazard exists.
    “It’s like a wild West when I’m  not there,” Hutchison said  of how his sheriff’s vehicle helps to curtail some of the reckless driving.
