    To the editor:
    On Nov. 8, it will be my honor to vote again for Roger Slade for city commissioner. He has proven his dedication to our town by always being in attendance and providing assistance in all civic and community matters to ensure everything runs smoothly.
    As a commissioner, he listens to the concerns of all constituents and discusses with them any issues which might develop.
    As a young adult, he spent endless hours helping to restore the old city cemetery to honor many of our founding fathers.

    To the editor:
    I am, Alice Allen, a recently retired school teacher from Harrison County High School. As a citizen and former lobbyist with Blue Grass Area Development District during the Washington D.C. trip in 1998 for flood control after the “Flood of 97.”
    I endorse Jada Walker Griggs as City Commissioner of Cynthiana. Jada is an excellent mother, hard worker, and a child of God. Jada Griggs is a young leader ready to use her voice, energy, time and educational awareness for the improvement of our community and our citizens!

    Tradition is a fickle thing.
    Some traditions are self-sustaining and important, some traditions might evolve and change slightly over time and some traditions are just, well, inane and might simply run their course and go away.
    Our family has traditionally exchanged presents and celebrated Christmas on the night before. That has remained unchanged.
    Other family traditions have been modified from year to year, with changing and growing families.

    In recent columns I’ve touted the resurrection of our Maiden City and those who have been behind the push.
    Things happening in Cynthiana are wonderful. It has taken the right people doing the right things at the right time.
    I’m so very proud of those young minds as well as all of the volunteers -- young and old -- who have worked tirelessly to ensure that Cynthiana doesn’t become The Forgotten City.
    With that said, I want to turn to the school district.
