    As a former school teacher, I really didn’t look forward to having my yearly salary published in the newspaper.

    I knew I would receive some not-so-good-natured ribbing from my friends who were not teachers.

    Teachers hear it all the time.

    “You get two months vacation every summer.”

    “You get three weeks off over Christmas.”

    “You get a week off in the spring and one in the fall.”

    To the editor:

    A ‘Solar Farm’. Really a ‘farm’? Are you kidding me? Webster’s defines a farm as “1 a: a piece of land used for growing crops or raising livestock b: a body of water used for the cultivation of aquatic animals.

    Elsewhere in the paper are some calendar reminders as they relate to the Nov. 8 general election.

    Those are dates from the Harrison County clerk.

    However, I have a couple more dates that will be important to candidates as they relate to the newspaper.

    We have always accepted candidate endorsement letters to the editor and that hasn’t changed.

    However, endorsement letters for a Cynthiana city commission hopeful from an out-of-county writer will not be printed.

    To the editor:

    We need to schedule a meeting for anyone interested in helping to maintain the Barlow Methodist Cemetery.

    Since the church has been torn down a cemetery association has been formed to help maintain the Barlow Cemetery. We are going to have a meeting in order to get organized and begin work.

    Some of the things that need to be done by the association are:

    1. Set up a mowing and maintenance schedule

  • Shopping local is economically sound

     

    With all the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it’s easy to forget about our wonderful small businesses downtown.  

    Cynthiana has come alive this year with so many great events. Visitors have come to our small town from all across the country. It is great to see these people on our streets, supporting our small businesses.  But I have to wonder, when was the last time you came downtown and supported your local small businesses?
