  • Moving forward, one step at a time

    By James Smith
    Mayor
    What a busy year the City of Cynthiana has had so far.  We have become the busiest little town in the state.  Everywhere I go, city officials from other cities are asking me how we’ve turned our city around so quickly.  
    I tell them, “We’ve got good people who love our town and are working hard to turn it around!”  

  • Peaceful protests have their place, even in Trump’s America

    For 27 years, every school day that I taught, began with either the National Anthem or the Pledge of Allegiance.
    The building principal, or his/her designee, came over the intercom and announced the National Anthem or led us in the Pledge of Allegiance.
    About half way through my teaching career, I began to have students refuse to stand for either of those.

  • Downtown speaker system up and running

    If you were in town for the Cynthiana Rod Run, chances are you heard the new downtown speaker system.
    During the Cynthiana Rod Run, our new downtown speaker system made its debut.
    Phase 1 of the speaker project is complete, thanks to the efforts of our community working together. Cynthiana Main Street spearheaded this speaker system project and with the support from the City of Cynthiana, the Harrison County Fiscal Court, Cynthiana-Harrison County Chamber of Commerce, The Lions Club, The Community Events Committee and 3M, this project was brought to life.

  • Viewpoint

    Monday’s shooting incident in Harrison County is not something that happens often in our sleepy little town, but isn’t it nice to know that when something of that magnitude does occur, our agencies are ready?
    The call came over the office scanner about 1:50 p.m. on Monday that a helicopter had been shot from the sky. Moments later, we heard Deputy Nathan Gasser breathlessly tell dispatch that shots were being exchanged with the suspect who had fired on the helicopter and that Nathan and Deputy Lance Hutchison were pinned down.
