  • Being an ‘empty-nester’ doesn’t have to mean feeling lonely, purposeless

    Something about my son turning 21 two weeks ago really hammered home the fact that my kids are both grown, and I’m now labeled an empty-nester.
    Both of them have been living on their own for over a year. My daughter is almost 20, so reality hit pretty late. But it hit hard.
    I’m an empty-nester. At the ripe old ago of 36, I’m an empty-nester.
    It’s not that I feel any different; I don’t.

  • Highways managed by state contractors

    To the editor:
    On Thursday, Aug. 13, Kevin Florence of the Kentucky Department of Transportation, updated the Cynthiana Rotary Club, at its weekly noon meeting, on the department’s progresses and challenges.  
    A question was raised about a dead tree leaning over U.S. 27, just south of Cynthiana. It was pointed out that if the tree fell it would present a major traffic disruption on a main artery into town. He said he would take a look at it to see if there was something he and his crew could address.

  • Rod Run heats up downtown Cynthiana every year; brings fun, money to town

    I know if I start naming names, someone will get left out. There’s also a huge chance that someone would be omitted by the mere fact that they worked behind the scenes and were not out front with a bull horn.
    I have covered, or at least been in town, for each of the four Rod Runs in Cynthiana. And each time I walk away with an all encompassing feeling of wow.
    It’s not that I’m so involved in classic cars, although there were a couple that I wouldn’t be embarrassed to drive away in ... just a couple.

  • Those who helped with Rod Run appreciated

    To the editor:

  • Thanks to Rod Run committee

    To the editor:
    I want to give a BIG shout out to Jerry Adams and his hardworking staff for the outstanding job they did this year on the Rod Run. They worked countless hours planning and preparing for this event. There was a great crowd, and who knows how many vehicles and vendor booths galore. Also the Lord blessed us with really beautiful weather.
    This is something Cynthiana should be proud of and in my opinion is the biggest and best event this little town has.
    Again, thanks to Jerry and his staff for all their efforts. Great job guys.
