    On June 25 a stack of new laws will take effect while others are groundwork for future changes.
    For example, House Bill 180 mandates that the Kentucky Board of Education come up with a teacher, or certified personnel, evaluation plan.
    However, they have until the 2014-15 school year to get that accomplished.

  • Holding on

    Her name is Kate, although that’s not her real name.
    Kate’s mother left when Kate was young, leaving her dad to care for Kate and her younger brother, with help from Kate’s grandmother.
    Kate never knew why her mom left, and even if she did, how could she ever even begin to understand it?
    When Kate was a teenager, she started going to a church — an unhealthy, abusive church. By that I mean that the pastor had absolute authority, strict and legalistic. He used fear and intimidation and church members did whatever the pastor said.

  • Meetings to be held at Hospice building

    The Women’s Club of Harrison County held their June 14 meeting at the Cynthiana Christian Church. Bonnie Teater, president, presided at the meeting.
    Theresa Martin gave the blessing of the food and everyone said the Lord’s Prayer.
    After lunch served by Layne Tussey, Martin did the Spiritual Values. Since Sunday is Father’s Day, she read two poems about fathers. She also reported that Father’s Day was started in 1910 in Spokane, Wash. by Sonora Louise Smart Dodd. This tradition is not as old as Mother’s Day.
