    To the editor:
    At the time I purchased the property, which is now Ashford Acres Inn, I could have easily chosen a property in Los Angeles, where I spend a large portion of my time, or a property in Lexington, a city that gets many more tourists than Cynthiana or surrounding counties. This choice likely would have been wiser when considering future profitability.

    To the editor:
    I stand opposed to the sale of alcohol on Sunday. In brighter and better days of our nation’s past, the Bible-believing New England Puritans set Sunday apart from the week as a day of worship and rest. That practice endured for over 300 years.

    This is in answer to the letter from Jayne Whitson Newman. By the way I don’t live in Berry, but outside the city.
    You have to be one very miserable person. For all you can see is what you call bad - wrong misuse of funds etc. By the way do you know what playground equipment costs? Well I checked it out on the internet. Boy was I ever in for a shock. That stuff is very expensive.

    To the editor:
    On behalf of the Cynthiana Alumni Association I’d like to thank Virgie Wells for her review of our alumni celebration in last week’s Democrat.
    We are happy and proud for the number of former students and alumni who meet every year to renew old friendships and catch up on each other’s news.

  • Downtown Dollars a perfect gift!

    Have you heard about Downtown Dollars? In May, Cynthiana Main Street introduced a gift certificate program for our downtown merchants. Downtown Dollars can be purchased through Cynthiana Main Street and redeemed at participating local downtown businesses.
    When you purchase the downtown dollars, you will be given a list of participating merchants where the gift certificate can be redeemed. We currently have over 20 downtown businesses accepting the downtown dollars.

    When Ernie and I were first married, a spider in the shower would send me squealing for someone to hunt down the intruder and eradicate its presence.
    After nearly 41 years of marriage and our morning routine where he leaves a good hour before me, I have had to suck it up and fight my own battles against arachnids.
    I’m not happy about it. In fact, most mornings when I hit the shower my eyes have barely opened. A creepy crawly does not put me in a tickled-pink kind of place.
    This week of meeting-my-fears head on began Sunday afternoon.
