  • Fresh meat market needed locally

    To the editor:
    If Cynthiana wants to expand revenue, may I make a suggestion. Anyone that’s wanting to open a good, profitable business why not open a good fresh meat market like we had on Main Street in the early 80’s.
    The closest fresh meat market to us is in Lawrenceburg KY. That is too far to drive with gas prices up.

  • Community getting in gear for seasons

    Since writing for the paper, every other week I sit in front of my computer pondering the events that have taken place recently and try to come up with a column.
    However, there has been so much that has gone on and will be going on that I am finding it too difficult to narrow my column down to just one story idea.
    So, I thought a general overview of ideas may be the best avenue for this week’s column.
    First of all, 94.5 FM has broken the ice. Yes, that’s right, Christmas carols are on the air for another month and a half.

  • Family Fare, a good choice for dining

    To the editor:
    The Family Fare Restaurant is an attractive setting for a very good breakfast, lunch or dinner. Even better you can get breakfast all day there. They have re-opened with a lovely renovation.
    There has been some confusion, however, with their hours of operation. Many of their previous customers think they are just open for a few hours in the afternoon and evening. This is not true as they are open on Tuesday- Saturday from 8am to 9pm and Sunday from 9am to 3pm.

  • Regretting the ebb of summer and the woe of winter

    Is anyone happy about having to scrape frost from their windshield?
    Count me out.
    I’m not a fan of cold weather. I don’t like to be cold. I don’t like to feel the wind whipping through my hair.
    That’s just not sexy.
    There’s nothing, let me repeat, nothing that makes me shiver more than a slight nip in the air that seems to just find the nap of my neck then seeps down my spine and robs any warmth that I’ve been able to store.

  • HCMS students and teachers deserve praise

    To the editor:
    As parents of students in the Harrison County Middle School and representatives on the Site-Based Decision Making Council (SBDMC) at HCMS, we would like to express our appreciation for the very hard work and improvement in the academic environment that teachers and staff at HCMS have obviously attained over the past several years.  

  • Smithsonian Exhibition was a big hit

    To the editor:
    Now that all closing reports have been sent in, the Cynthiana/Harrison County Trust, Inc. (Museum), would like to publicly thank those individuals and organizations that helped to make the Traveling Smithsonian Exhibition, “Journey Stories” a success. The official count of those registering in the guest book was 915 visitors, with 477 visitors attended the living history special events. Our attendance to the Museum was 12 percent over the same time last year.
