  • LVC students commend 10-year-old’s commitment to others

    By Sarah Kinney, Guest Columnist
    Jonah Case, an 10-year-old Northside fourth grader, recently visited a college class at the Licking Valley Campus of Maysville Community and Technical College.

  • Share your celebrity encounters with our readers

    Vacation season is upon us. And, while the price of gas may be restricting some travel, there is always a chance that you will meet up with a celebrity somewhere along your way.
    If you do, have someone snap of photograph of you and that star. We’d love to show it in The Cynthiana Democrat in a new feature  called Celebrity Encounters.
    If you are going to the Kentucky Speedway this summer, you may run into someone well known in the NASCAR circuit. Get a family member or even a complete stranger to capture the moment.

  • Taxpayers burdened by teachers’ retirement

    To the editor:
    I can sympathize with John Schrieber and his letter of May 12, where he had difficulty obtaining a refund from Kentucky Teacher’s Retirement System (KTRS), being only a substitute and having no intention of receiving benefits.  I had the same problem in 2004.

  • Enjoyment found in “Dr. Joe”

    To the editor:
    When Karen and I moved back to this part of the country from northern California in February 1997, one of the services we were interested in was a good doctor. Little did we know when Karen’s Aunt Violet Long, retired county nurse, referred us to “Dr. Joe” that we would acquire a superior doctor.
    On our first visit, I noted that Dr. Joe’s birth date was exactly one month (Aug. 20, 1937) prior to mine, which I thought was pretty cool. After spending time with him, I found he was pretty cool.

  • Family mission causes a change in heart

    When I write a column for our Viewpoint section of the Cynthiana Democrat, I try to find some humorous story to ramble on about.
    Sometimes, I even go outside my comfort zone and try and sound intellectual in discussing a sensitive or important issue within the county or city.
    However, never before have I been sitting at my computer and been led by emotion to share a story with everyone, until now.
