  • Using dowsing technique to determine melon’s ripeness

    Sometimes I’m left scratching my head and feeling like perhaps somewhere there is a camera filming my reaction to some silly situation.
    As I’ve said before, this is my second year growing a box garden in my backyard.
    Last year it was tomatoes and herbs. This year, tomatoes, watermelon and cantaloupe.
    I didn’t know what to expect when I planted the melons. Certainly not that they would overflow the box and stretch into my yard.
    But they did.

  • From White Castle to fine finger foods

    “It’s time for football in the Bluegrass!!!”
    I never get tired of hearing that chilling phrase or the jets flying over after the National Anthem is played.
    Kentucky football, support it or not, is here again.
    During my college days, which were highlighted by watching players like Andre’ Woodson, Jacob Tamme, Keenan Burton, Wesley Woodyard, Rafael Little and of course Steve Johnson, I had an opportunity to experience some of the best UK football ever played.

  • 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.
