  • Fresh-cut, live or artificial? Choosing a Christmas tree just right for you

    Picking out the perfect Christmas tree is serious business for me.
    Some may find it a trivial chore, but I want a tree that will be worth the effort of cleaning, moving furniture, hauling boxes, lights, step ladders and more. But, once the mundane is done then the fun begins.
    Each ornament that adorns the tree has a story to tell about my grandparents, parents or me. The tree is indeed important because it holds the past. And it must hold the past, in the form of many beloved ornaments, securely and with style.

  • Dec. 17 is target for US 27 bridge opening

    The goal is to have traffic on the new bridge by Friday, Dec. 17, said Nancy Wood, public information officer for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s District 6.
    When the bridge opens, thru traffic will be closed to Church Street. The north end of Church Street will be blocked off so that motorists coming into Cynthiana from the north will be required to cross the bridge.
    Wood said Church Street will remain closed through the winter with a re-alignment of the street to resume in the spring.

  • Harrison family receives a home for the holidays

    “Home for the holidays” may mean a homecoming for some families, but it has a completely different meaning for one Harrison County family.
    Susan Pike, Ricky Hughes and the four children they share have a new home.
    Through the efforts of the Cynthiana-Harrison County Home Assistance program, which is formerly Habitat for Humanity, Susan and Ricky can call 3 Citation Lane theirs.
    Susan applied for a house in 2007. Since that time, her family went through some changes as did the Home Assistance program.

  • Don’t be late: Yearbook deadline is Dec. 1

    It was at the 11th hour last year that a huge influx of photograph submissions for the Yearbook were received.
    Here we are again and I’m still awaiting pictures from events that occurred in Harrison County during 2010 or those involving our local citizenry.
    The deadline for this year’s book is Wednesday, Dec. 1.
    What we are interested in are photographs that our readers captured. Obviously, the news staff at The Cynthiana Democrat cannot be at every event. Therefore, this is a way for your event to be documented.
