  • A special thanks to some community supporters

    For some reason I feel like giving praise to a few individuals and groups in the community that often fly under the radar and do not receive the attention they so deserve.

    First, major praise should be given to Austin Dacci and the many volunteers responsible for the food program at River Road Park during the summer.

  • Celebrating 237 years of freedom

    On Thursday this week, our nation will celebrate the 237th anniversary of its independence.
    The holiday falls just past the halfway point of the calendar year and is often thought of as the mid-point of summer as well.  In addition to holding parades, shooting fireworks and enjoying cookouts, it’s also a good time to recognize some of the great things going on in the commonwealth.
    To begin with, we can take pride in the fact that Kentucky’s contribution to our country’s defense is stronger than ever.

  • Hurry back Biancke's

    To the editor:
    Wednesday my daughter called me on her way from the Dr. She said, mom, Biancke’s is on fire.”
    I could not believe that one day after we had a wonderful breakfast with her grandson and my great-grandson, this could be happening.
    All my memories of Cynthiana have had this wonderful place and it has had a part in my life on many, many happy occasions.

  • Thanks for prayers and concerns

    To the editor:
    First off let me say thank you for your concern about my brother. This goes for those in the community that called the Democrat to ask for an update. We are very greatful for your concern and prayers.

  • Historic Biancke’s will no doubt rebound

    Like most everyone else in Cynthiana, when the news circulated that our beloved Biancke’s Restaurant was on fire, I was deeply saddened.
    I was out of town and unable to see for myself what was going on. However, initial reports were that it would be a total loss.
    When Thursday dawned, however, the future looked much brighter for Mary Todd and the Biancke’s crew.
    By all accounts, Biancke’s front door was like a revolving door of volunteers helping to clean up a mess left by fire, smoke and water.
    It could have been much worse.
