    CIVIL CASES

  • ‘Bigoted, racial, ignorant decisions’ made by educators

    To the editor:

    Not being a parent, I wasn’t aware that the students at Harrison County schools weren’t able to listen to the President’s address, though it doesn’t surprise me.

    In a country where five percent of the people have 95 percent of the money, this sort of situation confirms that split also applies to common sense and brains.

  • Nashville quality music found at Rohs Saturday evenings

    To the editor:

    Nashville has come to Cynthiana! Well almost. Every Saturday night, The Classic Country Band is performing at Rohs Opera House, helping plant the seed for a downtown re-birth. The quality of music and songs performed by this group of seasoned musicians is equal to or above anything one can find in central Kentucky.

  • Royals rain on Breds, 30-16, on the Hilltop

    The high-powered Mason County Royals (5-0) outlasted host Harrison County (2-3) in the rain and mud on Friday night at the Harrison County Athletic Complex, 30-16.

    Two Harrison County fumbles in the third quarter sealed the win for the top-ranked team in Class AAA.

    Trailing 22-16 at halftime, Harrison County took the second half kickoff and went on a 15-play drive that ate up much of the third quarter, only to turn the ball over to the Royals when senior running back Josh Moss fumbled on the 1 yard line.

  • Anticipating a spring bulb display

    When it comes to bulbs, we are not always met with consistent success. Before you blame the chipmunks, the guy who mows the grass or the bulb company for their lack-luster performance, consider some of the other factors that influence how well flowering bulbs flower. 

    Sunlight, crowded bulbs, pre-mature removal of foliage the previous season or a winter rest period that wasn’t cold enough or long enough may play a role in poor performance. 

  • Engagement

    •Mandy Marshall and Carlos Bras of Norfolk, Va. The wedding will be held on Oct. 10, 2009 at Kincaid Lake State Park in Pendleton County by invitation only.

  • Commission faces hurdles to improve town

    We can see that there have been some overall improvements in our city and we feel that we are headed in the right direction. However, Cynthiana is facing some serious problems and the solutions to some of these are difficult at best. This might be a good time to point out a few of our major hurdles and what the commission is doing to try to solve them.

  • Part 2: Lawn fertilization in Kentucky

    Farm vs. specialty fertilizers

    Lawns can be fertilized with specialty turf fertilizers (normally available at local garden centers) or with farm fertilizers. The main advantages to the specialty fertilizers are:

    •Normally good nutrient ratios for turf.

    •Uniformity of particle size.

    •Low burn potential.

    •Calibration and application rate information printed on the bag.

    Most farm fertilizers do not have these advantages, but farm fertilizers are usually three to five time less expensive.

  • First writer’s workshop was ‘a job well done,’ says Grannis

    To the editor:

    Wow! Bruce Florence, director of MCTC-LVC has pulled off some more of her “magic” up on the hilltop this past weekend! I am referring to the writer’s workshop.

    There was a full house at The Prizing House on South Church Street Friday evening, where 15 noted authors set up for a “mini” book fair, wonderful buffet dinner, live folk band from Morehead and a keynote address by Kentucky’s Poet Laureate Gurney Norman.
