  • Art Walk paints the town

    Welcome back Cynthiana Art Walk!

    We are highly anticipating your second summer return and we know that this year you’ll be bigger than last!

    But, now, don’t get us wrong... there’s some things we hope don’t change from your first visit in Harrison County.

    Obviously, we want you to bring back the art! It wouldn’t be an Art Walk without the wide array of various artists’ work on display in our downtown shops and businesses.

    * The Cynthiana Kentuckian, Oct. 30, 1969 - “Mr. and Mrs. William (Billy) Bauer, who operate a motel in Myrtle Beach, S.C. have stopped over for a visit with Mr. Bauer’s mother, Anna Bauer, Elmarch Avenue. Billy will be remembered for the journey to the west coast, accompanied by Jimmie Galbraith, Bill Conway and George Cason in an open top 1923 Ford touring car. All four members survived the trip and at last report were doing well.”

    Presents always come in unexpected packages. Each one is always filled with something surprising and indescribable.

    Cynthiana was my “present” this summer.

    In these few short months here, I have truly had some unforgettable experiences that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

    My second day on the job, I fainted. Talk about mortifying. Residents are still asking me if I need some water or to sit down for a bit when I introduce myself.

  • When I hate change

    Last month my friend Tara invited me over to her house to be ruthless.

    She was thinking about selling her house and wanted my advice on staging it for sale.

    I’m not a decorator or a staging expert, but I watch them on TV. Plus, I love to be ruthless.

    As we went through her house, room by room, I’d say, “This needs to go,” “Get rid of that,” “Move this here and that over there.”

    It was loads of fun — for me. I have no trouble messing with other people’s stuff.

  • Cynthiana man indicted in cattle rustling case

    A Harrison County grand jury met Tuesday and issued five indictments, including one for cattle rustling.

    Robert Wilson, 40, faces 19 counts of theft by unlawful taking (more than $500, less than $10,000).

    According to the indictment, Wilson is alleged to have stolen cattle from Joe Fitzgerald starting in March 2004.

    After the 2004 incident, Wilson allegedly waited nearly four years before resuming the theft of cattle. The next incident is alleged to have occurred on Jan. 30, 2008. Four thefts occurred in 2008, 11 in 2009, and three in 2010.

  • Museum Musings

    * Cynthiana Democrat, July 29, 1937 - The Rohs has a long record of improving its equipment and service to patrons, the latest being air conditioning. It gives the patrons unparalleled comfort on the hottest day and changes air constantly so there is always a fresh clean odor, no matter how packed the house may be. The air conditioner was first used last week and has since been in operation. The process used is washed air, the water being drawn from an artesian well, 173 feet deep, the water being about 55 degrees.

  • Eighth grade Colts to continue learning process

    Eight grade Colt football coaches Jim Carr and Mark Jenkins are in their second year of coaching together with the soon-to-be Thorobreds.
