Today's Opinions

  • ART WALK 2010

    The Cynthiana Art Walk is itself, a piece of art. It began with an idea, infused with passion and many hard-working people. It happened because people believed it could and in turn, those people convinced business owners, musicians, corporations, local leaders, artists and visitors. Cynthiana residents are fortunate to have a downtown filled with law offices, dental practices, restaurants, retail shops, museum, theatre and gym. Sure, we need more, but we must remember to support what we have. 

  • A COMMUNITY-WIDE CELEBRATION

    To the Harrison County High School Thorobreds... now known as the 2010 State Baseball Champions:

    Wow! State champs!

    Congratulations on a job and season well done! All your hard work paid off, as you ended the season on a definite high note - claiming the title of Kentucky’s best!

  • Kennerly to sign “Cynthiana” books during Art Walk event

    To the editor:

    In December 2009, “Cynthiana,” my pictorial history of the Queen City, was released by Arcadia Publishing. I’m thrilled to say it has been very well received and that I’ve had an incredible time reconnecting with family and friends who helped bring the book to life.

  • The first lesson of marriage

    It’s official.

    I’m an old married woman and I’m now a Rash.

    Kate Rash.

    Despite the fact my name now sounds like a doctor’s diagnosis, I’m happy to be back home and back at the paper with a new husband and a new last name.

    I haven’t really written about Andrew (the brand new husband) in past columns, despite the fact we’ve dated the entire time I’ve worked at the paper and we’ve been engaged for the past year.

  • RELAYing HOPE

    It would be hard to find someone who hasn’t been affected by cancer, whether by their own diagnosis, or that of a friend or family member.

    Cancer is far-reaching, scary and life-changing.

    The disease doesn’t discriminate and makes no promises.

    But despite those characteristics, there is hope.

    Harrison County residents gathered at Ingles Stadium Friday for the 13th annual Relay for Life event.

    As the night progressed and the sun set, over 900 luminaries lined the track - each in honor or memory of someone with cancer.

  • HARRISON COUNTY FAIR

    Here’s a big yee-haw for the arrival of the Harrison County Fair!

    Summertime just wouldn’t seem the same without hog shows, tractor pulls, tilt-a-whirl rides, corn dogs, a newly crowned fair queen and funnel cakes.

    And while our annual fair has expanded to include many new activities (think mutton’ bustin’ and golf cart corn hole), the fair still brings with it an old excitement.

    For many families across the county, calendars are marked off and reserved for the more-than-a-week of fair fun.

  • Stay cool with summer reading

    When I was young, going to the library almost everyday of the summer was a ritual. Almost like going to the pool.

    Except my days were filled with the adventures of Nancy Drew, the Sweet Valley High twins, the Baby Sitters Club girls and the Baudelaire children.

    My sister and I, in fact, were always trying to “out-read” each other every summer, but, of course, I always won.

    And, we had ALL of the prizes to prove it: coupons to the zoo, the Horse Park and  Snappy Tomato Pizza, stickers, stamps, bookmarks, Frisbees, cups and new books.

  • Summer intern falls for Cynthiana, literally

    I have only been living in Cynthiana for about a week now, but I have already had a once-in-lifetime experience here. An experience, quite frankly, that gave a new meaning to the phrase “sleeping on the job.”

    It was a Wednesday afternoon. I was at Food Lion interviewing a young man about his first week back to work after taking off several months for medical leave. We had been chatting for maybe 15 minutes or so about school and his family when things began to lose focus in my vision.
