  • This week's headlines

    Lance Phillips and Curtis Stillwell share the same life-threatening disease.
    Now, a year after their treatments, they share news of good health.

    Work has resumed on the U.S. 27 North viaduct. Workers will be concentrating on the approaches to the bridge as well as Church Street.
    Constuction is also slated to begin this summer on the bypass around Cynthiana.

    These are just two stories we are working on for this week’s Cynthiana Democrat.

  • Cynthiana woman killed in Tuesday wreck

    Eighty-nine-year-old Helen Florence was killed Tuesday morning when she apparently lost control of her car on U.S. 62 East and hit a tree.
    “She is one of the sweetest ladies you would ever want to know,” said long-time neighbor Mary Coy, who will remember Florence waving to her every morning they were outside.
    “She was just a wonderful woman and she will be missed,” Coy said, adding that Mrs. Florence was extremely proud of her children and grandchildren.

  • One Recovery

    Nothing on earth can compare to a mother’s love for her baby boy, and thanks to answered prayers and a miracle from above, Clayton is still here to experience that unconditional love.
    Clayton Arnold is your typical Harrison County 8-year-old boy. He is never too far from Mommy’s side, but always one step behind Daddy while on the job.
    Last Christmas however, proved not to be so jolly for Clayton, but instead the beginning of a journey that would have everyone he knew and loved living through a nightmare that seemed never ending.

  • Dr. Stephens is first recipient of Chamber’s newest award

    Fifty years and counting. That’s how long Dr. Don Stephens has served the medical field. Those years Stephens has tried to keep Harrison Countians healthy likely played a role in Stephens being presented the first-ever Chamber of Commerce Health Care Person of the Year.
    With his own little cheering section in the back of the room applauding vigorously, Stephens walked to the podium to accept the Health Care person of the year award at the annual Chamber banquet.

  • Daylight Savings Time returns

    Just like a sunflower turning its head to catch the sun, we too have discovered a way to get more from the sun.
    Daylight Savings Time (DST) will take effect on Sunday, March 13, at 2 a.m. So before you head to bed Saturday night, set your clocks ahead one hour.
    DST gives us the opportunity to enjoy longer spring and summer evening activities.
