  • Farmer's Market is a must

    To the editor:

    A couple of Saturdays ago, as I was driving between Frankfort and Lexington, I received a phone call telling me that my name had been drawn to win a gift basket from the farmers’ market in Cynthiana.
    I was surprised, since I never win anything, and since I didn’t remember entering. I then recalled that I had quickly scrawled my name and phone number on a ticket a week before when I stopped to get some corn.

  • Company's coming, put on the shine

    When Cynthiana City Commissioner Billy Grayson took office he began a campaign to clean up the city.
    He asked business owners and residents to take pride in their property.
    “Company’s coming,” he has been heard to say numerous times at city commission meetings.
    He explained that if visitors come to Cynthiana, we want to put our best foot forward, much like you would at home if you knew guests were coming.

  • Downtown was more than alive

    To the editor:
    To the planners, coordinators, workers, promoters, participants and spectators, a big congrats.
    YA DUN GOOD!!
    Probably the biggest crowd in Cynthiana I can remember in a long, long time. Yeah, there were a few glitches along the way but it was Cynthiana’s first Rod Run and there’s always ways to improve the future.
    To the folks who thought it was too congested, noisy and not worth it-sorry! Cynthiana was alive and bustling again that day, something that needs to happen a whole lot more frequently.

  • Progress should not interfere with daily travel

    To the editor:
    Today I had occasion to turn into the alley between the Catholic church/school and the firehouse/gym. At the stop sign the way was blocked by a truck and trailer unloading wood. As I, correctly I believe, pointed out to the crew, its illegal to block a through-way for emergency reasons.
    I wanted to apologize for over estimating the source, as I am aware that its takes a modicum of brain cells to either put a cone at the entrance or move truck/trailer four feet ahead.

  • Thanks to all the football boosters

    To the editor:
    On Aug. 4, the Harrison County Football boosters recognized our parents, Harold and Ann Clinkenbeard, for their longtime support of the Harrison County football program.
    We would like to thank the association for honoring our mom with a very nice plaque and the kind and heartfelt words spoken at the banquet.
    Mom and dad not only supported Breds football. They regularly drycleaned band uniforms and cheerleader outfits as a service to those programs.

  • Not exactly a David vs. Goliath but pretty close

    Well, I made it through my first-ever strongman contest and it wasn’t a total bust... other than my head.
    Those who know me well, know that I have been working with a local talented strongman competitor.
    I met Rob McCann a few years ago when he held Harrison County’s first Kentucky’s Strongest Man competition at Lenono’s parking lot.
    I went to take pictures of the event and you know how the story goes, I was hooked on the idea of lifting really heavy things like the pros did.
