• Cynthiana is bustling with activities in August, September

    Wow! What a fantastic weekend it was in Cynthiana. 

    Kudos to Tomi Clifford and her committee for pulling together The Walking Dead Day.  I hope everyone enjoyed seeing our streets full of visitors and zombies.  

    So many great events are happening in our small town and it is exciting! 

    Up next, Cynthiana Rod Run Events. This will be the fifth year for the Cynthiana Rod Run.

    There’s entirely too much credit to be handed out, to entirely too many people, for the resounding success that was The Walking Dead Day, last Saturday.

    So, instead of making the mistake of mentioning anyone’s name, for fear of leaving out someone who is deserving, let’s just say “congratulations” to Cynthiana!

    Old Girl, you’re on your way back, if you ever left.

    Always, always after something comes out in print, you either remember something that should have, would have, could have been included or even a mistake that needs clarified.

    It’s a great section of which I am very proud and excited for our staff who worked so diligently to make it happen.
