  • Mixed drink sales not quite ready to shake

    When the calendar rolls over to March next week, you won’t automatically be able to order a margarita at your favorite Cynthiana restaurant.
    There are still hoops through which restaurateurs must jump.
    The out-going Cynthiana City Commission voted in December to allow restaurants meeting certain requirements to sell mixed drinks. That, according to the approved ordinance, takes effect in March.
    However, before the first martini is shaken, there are permits and licenses to be garnered and fees to be paid.

  • Go Red

    Angie Walker had never had heart burn before. She didn’t know what was going on within her chest, but she knew it wasn’t right.
    “It felt like I was burning straight through to my back,” Walker said of the symptom that led up to her heart attack 15 months ago.
    The burning persisted for several days. It was the middle of the night when it became obvious to Angie that this was not a food-created burning. Her husband Jerry “was panicking like I was having a baby.”
