  • A PROSECUTOR’S PERSPECTIVE

    Some of you may have just finished watching “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” a cable television miniseries which detailed the so-called “trial of the century,” and you may be wondering what happens during a typical felony jury trial in Kentucky.

  • Don’t make me scream

    If I hear another person say, “There’s just nothing to do in this town”, I think I’ll scream.
    I’ve heard that for years, but have never deciphered what those people want, that Cynthiana doesn’t provide.
    Certainly, a city pool for use  all year, would be nice. But that can’t be the only complaint the nay-sayers have.
    What is there that these people so desperately want that isn’t offered in the Maiden City?

  • What’s in a title?

    “What’s in a name”? Shakespeare once asked. “Would a rose by another name smell as sweet . . .”
    We can ask the same question about the book title of one of our local authors, Marilynn Bell. If you remember Marilynn once surprised herself, but not the judges, when she won the Lane Award for the Most Outstanding Entry in the college writing contest.

  • Dear local governments, thanks for your quick response

    From the standpoint of the newly approved needle exchange program being a health issue rather than a drug issue, I applaud the local governing bodies for their forward thinking.
    In my experience covering government meetings, I must say that I was surprised by the Cynthiana City Commission’s and Harrison County Fiscal Court’s consent to back the program. I, apparently unfairly, expected the city and county leaders to drag their collective feet.

  • FRANKFORT FOCUS with State Representative Tom McKee

     
    As the General Assembly wrapped up work on Friday, the next-to-last day of this year’s legislative session, the focus understandably turned to April 12, when legislators will return after a brief veto recess.
    Traditionally, the session’s last day is set aside just to consider whether to enact any bills or resolutions that the governor may have rejected.  This year, however, the House and Senate will also use that time to hopefully adopt a two-year budget to run state government.

  • Matt Bevin...the good and the bad

    It’s way too early to pass judgment on Kentucky’s new governor, Matt Bevin, as he’s barely three months into his first term.
    His hokey, ill-conceived and condescending social posting  several weeks ago, left a bad taste in most people’s mouths, Democrat and Republican, alike.
    Let’s set the stage. He had released his first biennium budget proposal as governor. He knew that it would rankle the democrats in the democratic-controlled House of Representatives as it did what he promised, slashed state spending.
