  • Showing your teacher appreciation

    To the editor:
    If you appreciate the knowledge you have acquired over the years, you should show your gratitude to a teacher. The mere fact that you can read this letter means you should thank a teacher -- and what better time to do that than during National Teacher Appreciation Week, May 2-6.

    However, as a spectator of the meetings, I have found that the new members are fitting in quite well and have few signs of growing pains.

  • There are two sides to the Cynthiana by-pass issue

    I have mixed emotions about the by-pass around Cynthiana that’s set to get underway this summer.
