  • Super Saturday is coming, Sept. 23

    You may have seen the posters around town or the events popping up on social media of a super event coming soon in Cynthiana.   If you haven’t, you should know that Cynthiana Super Saturday is coming.
    On Saturday, Sept. 23, Cynthiana will celebrate all things Cynthiana. The Chamber of Commerce, Cynthiana Main Street Program and the Community Events Committee have partnered to bring a day full of sales, events and fun to town.

    Mindfulness is something far too many of us neglect to practice.
    I personally see my neglect of practice manifest itself in a number of undesirable ways. My blood is quick to boil when a slow-moving vehicle pulls out in front of me, regardless of whether or not I’m in a hurry.
    I get far too angry over situations that are out of my control such as an election, or some idiot talking trash on an online game. Sometimes I lash out at friends or loved ones over situations that aren’t really worth all the fuss. I take things too personally.

    Americans are a fickle bunch.
    It doesn’t take long for the novelty of something new and exciting to wear off and become mundane and uninteresting.
    Unfortunately, I get the impression that the Rotary Club-sponsored Fabulous Fourth might be falling into that latter category.
    For those of you who don’t remember, the Fabulous Fourth celebration that we have enjoyed locally, is a relatively new phenomena.
