  • Look at the stats, downtown Cynthiana is on the rise

    One of my responsibilities as director for Cynthiana Main Street is to gather reinvestment statistics for our downtown district.
    Reinvestment statistics are vital to our program on the local and state level. This report helps validate the progress within the community.  
    As required by the state, I report our reinvestment statistics on a quarterly basis. I then present the cumulative report on an annual basis to our local government.

  • Viewpoint

    My children went through the public school system in Harrison County and each had their area of interest.
    They would likely say that socialization was the best part about school. Getting to mix and mingle with students from a potpourri of backgrounds was a definite plus for them.
    Erin went to all state chorus in middle school and then became part of the phenomenon that was THE Harrison County Marching Band, under the direction of Bob Gregg.
    Seth went to the state tournament as a senior competitor in tennis. He also wrestled and played soccer.

  • New growth is essential for continuous productivity

    There was always something to do growing up on the farm to prepare for the different seasons. One of the busiest times was preparing the family garden so that it would grow and produce good, healthy vegetables all during the season.
    A good, productive garden must be maintained weekly by removing all produce that is good or bad to make room for new growth. New growth is essential for continuous productivity. Each plant can be sustained and maintained by keeping soil lose, watering and cultivating lightly, depending on the weather.

  • Grace Notes

    Recently, as Sen. Elizabeth Warren gave a speech criticizing then-nominee now Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stopped her from speaking.
    In his explanation for invoking a little-known rule to silence her, McConnell said, “Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
    Immediately, that became the battle cry of many women across the nation with #ShePersisted and #LetLizSpeak among the top trending topics on Twitter.
