  • Truck driver survives fiery crash

    As Andy Smith’s 18-wheeler was grinding along the four-foot concrete wall of a bridge overpass in northern Kentucky, he wasn’t thinking about the special he would sing at Cynthiana Christian Church on Sunday. At least, he doesn’t think he was.
    Other than how he could free himself from the burning cab of his tractor, he doesn’t remember what was going through his mind.

  • Gone fishing

    There is a kid inside all of us and usually, there is an event or hobby that will make even the most serious tempered grown-up smile like a kid in a candy store.
    Shawn Combs is far from being the serious type. Energetic and full of life would probably sum up the biggest portion of Combs’ personality.
    However, something as simple as seeing the end of a fishing pole twitch is enough to give Combs that state of mind similar to a kid waking up on Christmas morning.

  • Heat stroke cause of Perraut death

    A 36-year-old Cynthiana man died from a suspected heat-stroke Thursday afternoon.
    According to Sgt. Wilbur Gross of the Cynthiana Police Department, Edward Chris Perraut was mowing with a Bush Hog in a lot on Chelsea Drive. A neighbor heard him begin working about 4:45 p.m.
    A short time later, the neighbor saw Perraut lying face down at the rear of her residence with the tractor still running.
    The police report states that it appears Perraut got off the tractor to move a tree limb and may have passed out as he bent over.
