It’s a given that there will always be the records and obituaries, births and weddings, sports and church items. But what would make your Cynthiana Democrat a better read?
The news team is always looking for feature stories on people who make a difference in Cynthiana and Harrison County.

The General Assembly returned to the capitol last week, kicking off another legislative session as it always does in odd-numbered years: electing House and Senate leaders and establishing membership of the various committees for the next two years.
I’m proud to say that I will have the opportunity to serve again as chairman of the House Agriculture and Small Business Committee, which gives me a strong voice in setting the state’s policy in these two areas.
A new year has begun and one question we should all ask ourselves is... Are we going to help change anything for the better?
I have been working for The Cynthiana Democrat for over two years now.
During the first months of my employment, I took on the task of following the Harrison County Fiscal Court meetings.
A major observation that I feel that I am more than qualified in making is the lack of community interest in what goes on in the meetings twice a month.

As we celebrate the holidays and ready for the new year, many of us may find ourselves taking a moment to recall the positive things in our lives.
Statewide, there has been some good news in recent months worth noting. The job market overall is looking somewhat better, with the state’s unemployment rate down, and we’re working on improving the economy here in our legislative district.
We didn’t get that white Christmas I was pulling for this year, but weather forecasters are promising some snow for our future.
I’m not nearly the fan I once was, but certainly I get excited about a forecast that could bring some snow our way.
I like it best if it’s a day (or two) that I’m going to be home and not out on the roads. It’s great to cozy up in the house and watch it snow.
Unfortunately, the biggest snowfalls generally happen during the week when most of us have some place we have to be.
