  • Cynthiana High School reunion planned for June 26-27

     

  • When done at the last minute, moving is that much harder

    Most of you probably don’t know this, but when you’re a writer for the Democrat, you have to write a column every other week.
    I’m free to write about anything I want. I can share my opinion on things going on in the community, or on issues in general.
    For now at least, though, I’d like to use my columns just as a way for all of you out there to get to know me a little, as I’m trying to get to know all of you. I guess if I’m going to be writing for and about Cynthiana, it’s only fair for you all to know who I am.

  • Arraignment offers defendant a chance to hear charges, offer plea in court

    We discussed the grand jury process, but what happens once a defendant has been indicted on felony charges by the grand jury?  
    If the defendant was out on bond, the circuit judge typically enters an order transferring the bond to circuit court and setting the defendant’s case for the next available circuit court docket.  
    If the defendant is in jail because he was unable to post bond in district court or his case was submitted directly to the grand jury, the circuit judge issues a warrant for the defendant’s arrest.

  • 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.

  • Ice cream social is a success

    To the editor:
    The parishioners of St. Edward Catholic Church thank everyone who supported our 66th Annual Ice Cream Social. It was a great success. All proceeds benefit the operation of St. Edward School.
    We very much appreciate the kindness and generosity of our local businesses which provided items for our silent auction.  We are grateful to the many members of our local churches and community who stopped by and enjoyed some of our homemade ice cream and cake. Thanks for your support.
