  • Moses will bring competence to Cynthiana mayor’s office

    To the editor:

    This November we are fortunate to have two individuals running for Mayor of Cynthiana who are respected and well liked within our community. Both currently serve as elected officials within city and county government and both bring a strong commitment for the betterment of our community.

  • Church: A place for all sinners

    On the way home from church last week I heard a radio spot.

    One guy tells another guy about his neighbor who’s always hard on his son. They’ll be out playing ball in the yard and the dad will constantly tell his son, “You’ll never be a ball player if you keep messing up like that.”

    Then the guy says, “Get this — on Sunday mornings the whole family gets in the car and goes to church.”

    His friend asks, “How do you know they’re going to church?”

  • Academic Briefs

    LAMBERT

    Harrison County High School senior Samantha Lambert was recently awarded with a $5,000 Jesse Brown Memorial Youth Scholarship, which is one of the top awards in the program supported by Ford Motor Company Fund, for her work with local area veterans, volunteering at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Lexington. She was one of only 12 students in the entire United States to get one of these scholarships.

  • Hold off on fertilization for now

    Our current weather conditions demand that we rethink some of our fall chores. 

    Fall lawn and tree fertilization should come later this year than normal because of the drought conditions. An application of high nitrogen now would only burn up what little green grass you may have and force trees to work more than they should under stressful conditions.

    Even if you irrigate the lawn and water is not an issue, you still want to hold off because our lawns also share space with the roots of our trees and shrubs and will have access to the applied nitrogen.

  • Food Pantry thanks community for generous donations

    To the editor:

    This letter is to all of the community who have asked about the Food Pantry and want to know our needs. This summer, the fresh produce helped tremendously, but the giving of food and money was lower than usual, but God has blessed us and we have been able to help many.

    This letter is also a thank you to all who have given so generously. Bullard, 3M, St. Edward school, Harrison County High School, the library and many more in the last few weeks had food drives and these are so appreciated.
