    Celebrity chefs say people eat with their eyes first.  Then, they serve up a deliciously crafted work of art on a plate.  It may be true, but most of us use our senses of smell and taste to satisfy hunger.

  • Patience appreciated at recent city commission meeting

    To the editor:

    Recently I went to a city council meeting. It was attended by a number of folks. Some of those in attendance were there to present an issue of importance to them. They all shared their thoughts in turn and were heard and dealt with respectfully. As I sat and watched the proceedings, which also dealt with other local issues, I was aware of how the members of the council dealt with each other and the topics - very patiently. It seems to me I was sensing the presence of God in this meeting.

  • MIKE’S MINUTE

    I know that I have mentioned in a previous article about the affect that parents and coaches have on youth while playing sports. 

    This affect can be both positive and, unfortunately, negative on the young players.  This came to light for me again this weekend when I traveled out of Cynthiana to umpire some girls’ softball. 

    I will tell you that now, perhaps more than ever, when people find out you are from Cynthiana they act like they think you may know more than you do about baseball and softball.
