  • Recreation in America and Cynthiana

    A WalletHub study of best and worst cities for recreation caught my eye recently and made me think of how it related to Cynthiana and Harrison County.  
    The study lists 100 cities ranking them from one, being the best, to 100, the worst, using 44 key indicators.
    The top four indicators are facilities, costs, quality and weather. Some of the other considerations are most park playgrounds for the population; walkable park access; spending on parks per capita; bike rental facilities and coffee and tea shops.

  • Viewpoint

    When Ernie and I were first married, a spider in the shower would send me squealing for someone to hunt down the intruder and eradicate its presence.
    After nearly 41 years of marriage and our morning routine where he leaves a good hour before me, I have had to suck it up and fight my own battles against arachnids.
    I’m not happy about it. In fact, most mornings when I hit the shower my eyes have barely opened. A creepy crawly does not put me in a tickled-pink kind of place.
    This week of meeting-my-fears head on began Sunday afternoon.

  • Let the bell of liberty ring

    Tradition tells of a chime that rang out on July 8, 1776, from the tower of Independence Hall summoning the citizens of Philadelphia to hear the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence by Colonel John Nixon.  
    That chime came from the Liberty Bell which has ever since become a symbol of the iconic Declaration upon which so many of our freedoms rest.
