  • HARRISON COUNTY FAIR

    Here’s a big yee-haw for the arrival of the Harrison County Fair!

    Summertime just wouldn’t seem the same without hog shows, tractor pulls, tilt-a-whirl rides, corn dogs, a newly crowned fair queen and funnel cakes.

    And while our annual fair has expanded to include many new activities (think mutton’ bustin’ and golf cart corn hole), the fair still brings with it an old excitement.

    For many families across the county, calendars are marked off and reserved for the more-than-a-week of fair fun.

  • Stay cool with summer reading

    When I was young, going to the library almost everyday of the summer was a ritual. Almost like going to the pool.

    Except my days were filled with the adventures of Nancy Drew, the Sweet Valley High twins, the Baby Sitters Club girls and the Baudelaire children.

    My sister and I, in fact, were always trying to “out-read” each other every summer, but, of course, I always won.

    And, we had ALL of the prizes to prove it: coupons to the zoo, the Horse Park and  Snappy Tomato Pizza, stickers, stamps, bookmarks, Frisbees, cups and new books.

  • Summer intern falls for Cynthiana, literally

    I have only been living in Cynthiana for about a week now, but I have already had a once-in-lifetime experience here. An experience, quite frankly, that gave a new meaning to the phrase “sleeping on the job.”

    It was a Wednesday afternoon. I was at Food Lion interviewing a young man about his first week back to work after taking off several months for medical leave. We had been chatting for maybe 15 minutes or so about school and his family when things began to lose focus in my vision.

  • Just wait ‘til you have kids of your own

    I have become my mother. She warned me years ago that it would happen. And, years after her death, her prophesy has come to pass.

    As my children were growing up, I felt twinges of the metamorphis taking place... Like when I would say something like “You just wait til you have kids of your own,” or “You’ll poke your eye out.” And, the ever-popular “If Susie jumped off a bridge, would you do it too?” She was also good at telling me that she would love to see me as a mother. That was always followed by a synical laugh.

  • Supplies shouldn’t be required for students in public schools

    To the editor:

    The supplement published with the Thursday July 22 edition of the Cynthiana Democrat, “Back To School,” was so nice and informative for everyone - students, parents, grandparents, business people, and for that fact, everyone in the community. I wish there had been something like this in my day. No more guessing or asking about bus schedules, classes, even wearing apparel. Nothing second hand. Just read it and keep it handy until it all becomes routine.

  • Golfers start season with tough field at Flyer Classic

    The Harrison County boys’ golf team took to the links for the first time this year on Monday and Tuesday and finished 18th in a 24-team field in the Flyer Classic. 

    The two-day event, which featured the top teams in the central Kentucky and Louisville areas was played at the Griffin Gate Golf Course and Juniper Hills Golf Course. 

    Coach Jason Crisp was a little disappointed with the first day’s scores, but the team came back on the second day with a respectable 322 compared to Monday’s 335.

  • Christian behavior is sometimes bad PR for Jesus

    According to Forest Gump, Christians are like a box of chocolates.

    You can’t always tell which ones are nuts.

    Also, when you bite into a bad one, it ruins your taste for the rest of the box.

    That’s what I used as my opening Sunday as the invited guest speaker at the local Unitarian-Universalist fellowship.
