  • Indian summer unfolding this autumn

    I heard the weather man mention Indian summer last night and it got me thinking about this old print my father had hanging in his office.  
    The two images were of a young man and his grandfather around a small bonfire; as the scene turns to night the smoke that arose from the fire reveals an image of dancing American Indians, the hay stacks in the distance become teepees and the verse that accompanies the print reads like a tale from a not so enlightened time: “Yep, sonny, this is sure enough Injun summer. Don’t know what that is, I reckon, do you?”

  • City Hall renovations will be finished in time for basketball season

    It’s the same, but different.
    It’s tagged the Cynthiana-Harrison County Sports Center, but for many it will always be City Hall.
    It’s a gymnasium, but it has a beautiful new hard maple floor.
    It’s a place to play basketball, but it also has floor locks to accommodate volleyball.
    There’s still green paint, but it’s new and clean and will also be covered under the goals by 12 feet of padding.

  • Keeping babies safe is goal of CFD program

    Every parent wants to make sure their newest arrival is protected.
    For nine months they have been safely tucked away in Mom’s belly and now they need outside protection.
    When they are in a vehicle, that protection comes in the form of a car seat.
    And, to ensure that car seats are being used at maximum safety, Cynthiana firefighters have gone through rigorous training for correct car seat installation.
    Specifically, Cynthiana has nine certified “child restraint system technicians.”
