    October is another busy month for Cynthiana. Ghost walks, Thriller on Main, Fright on Pike and ArtOberFest. 

    I’m sure there are more events than I’ve listed, but WOW! October will be fun.

    To the editor:

    In regards to Becky Barnes’ editorial in last week’s Cynthiana Democrat on elections:

    Apparently, thanks to television history programs, elections were really slimy in years past. Verbal prevarications, much worse than now, led to deals, Bowie knife fights and mayhem with walking canes on the floor of Congress.

  • Five Cats and One Cell Phone

    Condolences go out to the many friends and the family of former Harrison County Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Roy Woodward.

    Dr. Woodward took the reins of the school district at perhaps the most challenging time possible.

    The community had hardly healed from the debacle that was the Dr. Wade G. Roby era. 

    School board meetings had to be moved to the HCHS auditorium to adequately seat the throngs of people who wanted to voice their displeasure at Roby for his actions and policies.

    To the editor:

    This summer, we were in Cynthiana (where I grew up) and had lunch downtown on Walnut Street. Coming out of the restaurant, we nearly fell to our knees (literally) due to the condition of the sidewalk. They are mostly rubble. Deplorable, embarrassing and unbelievable. Why     is this? Does nobody care anymore?
