    The words small and big are definitely an understatement to me. I recently moved from Cynthiana, Kentucky to Orlando, Florida to attend Rollins College, where I plan on majoring in chemical engineering and then continuing to grad school at Washington University.
    Towards the end of my senior year in high school I knew that I had a very big decision to make on where I wanted to further my education.

  • Grace Notes

    A number of years ago, a man I know had multiple surgeries on his hand, which left him without feeling in it.
    He had had surgery because of pain, so in one respect, not feeling meant he also no longer felt pain, so that’s a good thing, right?
    However, as a craftsman, that also meant he couldn’t use his hand to do his job, which required using both hands and all his fingers.

  • Let’s pull together

    The other day I got the opportunity to pull a fire truck with two friends. It was me, the county judge and the county sheriff.  
    We got up on the rope, grabbed on, and waited for the signal to go.  
    The signal came, we pulled, the driver let off the brake, and….  The truck started to roll the wrong way. So we pulled harder!
    The problem was that we were pulling uphill and the fire truck was just too heavy for the three of us to get moving in the direction we wanted to go.

  • BBQ Throwdown a huge success

    By Stephanie Burden
    Main Street Program Director
    Cynthiana Main Street’s Downtown BBQ Throwdown was a huge success and a lot of fun.
    Last Saturday as part of the Cynthiana Super Saturday, Main Street hosted our first bar-b-que cook off.  We had five local participants bring their best bar-b-que to town.
    Who knew we had so many delicious bar-b-ques in the county.
    The public got to “vote” for their favorite bar-b-que and it sure wasn’t any easy choice.  Ultimately, only the top three could win.

  • Moving forward, one step at a time

    By James Smith
    What a busy year the City of Cynthiana has had so far.  We have become the busiest little town in the state.  Everywhere I go, city officials from other cities are asking me how we’ve turned our city around so quickly.  
    I tell them, “We’ve got good people who love our town and are working hard to turn it around!”
