  • Kim Davis’ actions result in appreciation for local officials

    If anyone actually keeps track of who writes columns when here at the Democrat (which I very, very seriously doubt) you would not have been expecting to hear from me this week.
    Our fearless leader is on vacation, however, so here I am. Ready to step up to the plate, ready to  help out when needed. Ever versatile, ever eager, ever vigilant. That’s me.

  • Being an ‘empty-nester’ doesn’t have to mean feeling lonely, purposeless

    Something about my son turning 21 two weeks ago really hammered home the fact that my kids are both grown, and I’m now labeled an empty-nester.
    Both of them have been living on their own for over a year. My daughter is almost 20, so reality hit pretty late. But it hit hard.
    I’m an empty-nester. At the ripe old ago of 36, I’m an empty-nester.
    It’s not that I feel any different; I don’t.

  • Rod Run heats up downtown Cynthiana every year; brings fun, money to town

    I know if I start naming names, someone will get left out. There’s also a huge chance that someone would be omitted by the mere fact that they worked behind the scenes and were not out front with a bull horn.
    I have covered, or at least been in town, for each of the four Rod Runs in Cynthiana. And each time I walk away with an all encompassing feeling of wow.
    It’s not that I’m so involved in classic cars, although there were a couple that I wouldn’t be embarrassed to drive away in ... just a couple.

  • Videos being used as smoke screen in fight against abortion

    Most people don’t like being manipulated, or having smoke thrown in their eyes.
    Which is why the recent efforts to have Planned Parenthood de-funded are really concerning.
    In essence, what these activists are doing is turning heavily edited, inflammatory video footage involving a few individuals against an entire organization, and, in the end, all women.
