  • Societal issues cause a dilemma

    Can you hear it?
    It’s a collective rolling over in the grave. Our ancestors have to be puzzled and saddened by today’s headlines as they look down on a gone-wild society. Not only globally, but locally as well.
    I know I am terribly saddened.
    I’ve been asking myself all week how a grown man can walk into a home and stab a 6-year-old child to death?
    There is a not-guilty plea in the Woodford County case, however, the defendant has allegedly admitted to officials that he stabbed the boy.

  • Massie seeks return to normalcy in Washington

    By U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie

  • Hello again, wanna argue?

    Let me begin by saying that I welcome the opportunity to write again for The Cynthiana Democrat.
    My wife and extended family questioned my sanity, when told of this new “job opportunity.”
    That changed after I told them of my compensation package, however.
    They now know that I’ve lost my mind.
    All kidding aside, I am excited about this new adventure in my life.
    I don’t have any axes to grind with anyone.  I have no hidden agendas.

  • Time reporting in Cynthiana truly memorable

    Much sooner than I ever imagined, I am writing my last column for the Cynthiana Democrat.
    As I write this, I find myself in the same position as my predecessor, Josh Shepherd. I had hoped it to be where I broke the news, but, as I have found out, many of you already know.
    The Cynthiana rumor mill does work fast, as Josh said in his last column.
    I have accepted a job at another paper, and it was an opportunity I had to take.

  • Communcation important in dealing with teen technology use

    If you have a child in middle or high school, you have probably had to make the decision of whether or not they are ready for a cell phone.  
    Our children have far more access to technology than we did at their age.  
    When used safely, this technology can place a world of knowledge at their fingertips.  However, when teenagers are handed cell phones, tablets and other electronic devices with no rules and no parental guidance, they can be placed at risk.
