  • Art Walk paints the town

    Welcome back Cynthiana Art Walk!

    We are highly anticipating your second summer return and we know that this year you’ll be bigger than last!

    But, now, don’t get us wrong... there’s some things we hope don’t change from your first visit in Harrison County.

    Obviously, we want you to bring back the art! It wouldn’t be an Art Walk without the wide array of various artists’ work on display in our downtown shops and businesses.

  • Community

    Presents always come in unexpected packages. Each one is always filled with something surprising and indescribable.

    Cynthiana was my “present” this summer.

    In these few short months here, I have truly had some unforgettable experiences that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

    My second day on the job, I fainted. Talk about mortifying. Residents are still asking me if I need some water or to sit down for a bit when I introduce myself.

  • When I hate change

    Last month my friend Tara invited me over to her house to be ruthless.

    She was thinking about selling her house and wanted my advice on staging it for sale.

    I’m not a decorator or a staging expert, but I watch them on TV. Plus, I love to be ruthless.

    As we went through her house, room by room, I’d say, “This needs to go,” “Get rid of that,” “Move this here and that over there.”

    It was loads of fun — for me. I have no trouble messing with other people’s stuff.

  • ‘Harrison County’s baseball tradition is alive and well’

    To the editor:

    As I sit here on this Fourth of July weekend at River Road Park watching T-ball, I can’t keep from thinking this is the place where it all started. I’m talking about the players, our 2010 State Baseball Champions, our own Harrison County Thorobreds. I also reflect back to the time when the team was just three outs away from losing the region. There would have been no need for this article.

  • Ford’s life was a gift to others

    I don’t usually enjoy forwarded e-mails (unless they’re the really funny ones), but my mother recently sent me one with the title “well worth it.”

    Intrigued, I opened it.

    A YouTube video narrated by a Benedictine monk named Brother David Steindl-Rast, the message suggested that each day is something special.

    “You think this is just another day in your life?” the monk said. “It’s not just another day. It’s one day that is given to you. Today. It’s a gift.”

  • ART WALK 2010

    The Cynthiana Art Walk is itself, a piece of art. It began with an idea, infused with passion and many hard-working people. It happened because people believed it could and in turn, those people convinced business owners, musicians, corporations, local leaders, artists and visitors. Cynthiana residents are fortunate to have a downtown filled with law offices, dental practices, restaurants, retail shops, museum, theatre and gym. Sure, we need more, but we must remember to support what we have. 

  • A COMMUNITY-WIDE CELEBRATION

    To the Harrison County High School Thorobreds... now known as the 2010 State Baseball Champions:

    Wow! State champs!

    Congratulations on a job and season well done! All your hard work paid off, as you ended the season on a definite high note - claiming the title of Kentucky’s best!
