  • Cynthiana High School reunion to offer a walk down Memory Lane

    Cynthiana High School reunion activities planned for the weekend of June 26-27 promise a walk down Memory Lane; both figuratively and literally.
    Maximize each reunion’s offering with the following itinerary:
    Friday night dinner at Biancke’s kicks off the reuniting of anyone who wishes to join.
    Saturday morning, take a stroll up Main Street. The first store front decorated in Uniques where three commemorative boards are on display. The exhibit depicts life during the 1950s as experienced by the honored 60-year class.

  • No primaries would be better for Cynthiana

    The city of Owensboro is on to something.
    For years I have pondered the need for primary elections in non-partisan races. Particularly those for Cynthiana and Berry commission races.
    As it stands now, the mayor and commissioners are in a constant state of campaigning if there are enough candidates who have filed.
    If more than eight people file for the city commission seats, they have to run in a May primary to narrow the field to eight. Then in November, they run again in the general election to get the four officials.

  • Sister's nuptials lead to yearning for big wedding one day

    My older sister is getting married next month. This will be her second wedding since I’ve been single. For those who like to keep score, it’s 2-1, with her in the lead.
    Plus, my “wedding” when I got married at the age of 18 didn’t really count. It wasn’t a big, fancy wedding, to say the least. It was just the two of us, at home, in our jeans, and we had to go knock on the next door neighbors’ door and ask them to be our witnesses.

  • Take advantage of county schools’ feeding program this summer

    As far back as I can remember, the Harrison County Board of Education has supported the Summer Feeding Program.
    And, as far back as that, I can remember heading down to River Road Park around noon one day after school was dismissed for the summer.
    There have always been eager faces waiting for the day’s nutritious fare.
    It’s an outstanding opportunity for families to grab a quick lunch for their children. It’s only for kids­—not the parents.
