    What’s it mean to you?

    We’ve seen a renewed passion in Cynthiana in recent months. 

    And, the good is beginning to overshadow the bad. Certainly, Cynthiana and Harrison County have their problems. There’s still a terrible drug/heroin problem eating away at our young adults, but even that seems to be lessening.

    Perhaps I’m looking through rose-colored glasses and seeing what I want to see.

  • Sen. West on the Fourth of July

     The Fourth of July gives us all a chance to reflect on our country and to take pride in our nation’s enduring principles. It is the day on which the Declaration of Independence was ratified by exemplary visionaries who dared to create a new form of government and new laws for a new people.

    Washington Post reporters Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward pieced together a seemingly inconsequential burglary of the Democratic National Party headquarters at the Watergate Office building and eventually tied that to Nixon’s White House staff, leading to his resignation.

  • Pick-a-Project: Crape Myrtles . . . we can do it

    Would you come with me as we wander down memory lane for a few lines?
    Do you remember way back when Harrison High School decided to add football to its sports offerings? Do you remember that the team consisted of high school boys who had, for the most part, never played football, and a coach who had never coached football? Do you also remember that there was no expectation that this team could do very well?
    And that was O.K., they were young and inexperienced and it could take years for Harrison County football to reach any level of success.

  • Cynthiana -- Prepare yourself for the Zombie Apocalypse

    Are we ready for a zombie apocalypse?
    There’s no need to head for your doomsday shelter just yet. But, that doesn’t mean that in the week’s ahead that shelter won’t come in handy.
    The creative minds of Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore blended to put Cynthiana out there in comic book land when they developed The Walking Dead.
    It became an immediate got-to-have comic book and caught the eye of AMC execs, who eventually developed TWD into a phenomenally successful television series.
