  • Don’t be fooled by letters, calls that promise winnings

    Hold your breath waiting for a new me.
    When I opened my email this morning, I discovered that I can “melt away” belly fat with a fascinating new paint.
    Paint?
    That’s what it said. However, after reading beyond the heading, I found it was a miraculous plant.
    If I would click the link I could find out more.
    Or, another email boasted being able to teach a language in just 10 days!
    I have my doubts.

  • New laws added to help secure state retirement

    For the better part of the past year, there was no doubt what the biggest issue of the 2013 Regular Session would be: Stabilizing our public retirement systems for state and local government employees and their retirees.
    Initially, it seemed as if the House and Senate would not be able to find common ground as both sides took different approaches to solve the problem.

  • Soldier support group asks for help with care packages for troops

    A local soldier support group is calling on the community to help send care packages to soldiers serving in Afghanistan.

    Something as simple as a favorite movie or a picture of family members is all it takes to remind those serving why they are serving.
    The 149th Vertical Construction Company, which is currently stationed in Afghanistan, will be receiving care packages from supporters in Harrison County in the near future.

  • Industrial Hemp Bill passes in waning hours of session

    Kentucky House of Representatives passed the hemp bill by a vote of 88-4 just before midnight of the last day of the regular session.
    No doubt Sen. Paul Hornback, sponsor of the highly publicized Senate Bill 50 “ industrial hemp bill”, had his breath held as the vote was tallied in the Kentucky House of Representatives last Tuesday night.
    The house voted on the hemp bill, which creates an administrative framework for industrial hemp production in Kentucky, with just 45 minutes before midnight on the last day of the regular session.

  • Commission orders efficiency study of Cynthiana Police Department

    The Cynthiana City Commission voted unanimously last week to seek an efficiency analysis and operational review of the Cynthiana Police Department.
    Safety Commissioner Gary Brunker said Tuesday that he had been thinking about having the study done for some time and that many departments have them periodically. However, with the recent submission of a petition concerning management at the police department, Brunker said, it was the best time to move forward.
