  • Candidate endorsements deadline is May 4 for May 22 primary

    As the 2018 election draws near candidates will begin lining up their followers to write endorsement letters to the newspaper.
    We welcome those local letters. Local being the operative word here.
    We won’t accept letters of mass mailings. With e-mail so prevalent, it’s tougher to determine “mass mailings.” However, if someone sends a letter from Indianapolis endorsing one of our local hopefuls, it’s pretty obvious that it’s from a mailing list.

  • Help build our ‘pocket park’

    Have you ever heard of a pocket park?
    According to Wikipedia, a pocket park is a small park accessible to the general public, pocket parks are frequently created on a single vacant building lot or on small, irregular pieces of land.
    Cynthiana Main Street is excited to announce that we are building a pocket park downtown. The city has a vacant gravel lot on South Main Street that we want to turn into a nice, clean inviting space downtown.

    April is winding down and if you have said anytime this month ... “There’s nothing to do,” it’s your own fault.
    Wow! What a busy month. And, there’s still this weekend to go.

    Starting with the Governor’s Office, and working on down to the General Assembly, it appears the Republican Party is making it easy for the Democrats to retake control of state government in the not-to-distant future.
    Governor Bevin has a terminal case of ‘hoof and mouth’, or is that ‘foot in mouth,’ disease.
    It seems he cannot help himself from alienating all state employees, particularly teachers.
