  • The gospel of Charlie

    (Editor’s note: This is an updated column from 2005, about a well-known and dearly loved local service dog that died this week. Charlie was a welcome guest at nursing homes and hospitals and marched in parades. This is a tribute to Charlie, who will be missed.)

    Joan Chipkar has one of those kind hearts that I only dream of having.

    She says there’s no such thing as a stray — dog or person — as long as she has four walls and a roof. She adopts them all, believing that all God’s creatures have a purpose.

  • Slade is the best candidate for Cynthiana City Commission

    To the editor:

    My letter today is in regards to the election for city commissioner. I would like to publicly express my support for one candidate in particular, Roger D. Slade. I think it is important that the community of Cynthiana has an outsider’s perspective concerning Roger Slade. I have resided in Cynthiana for just six years and Roger was one of the first few individuals that I met here. Roger was a very welcoming person, a true ambassador of a small town. His love and vision for Cynthiana was evident from the first day we met.
