    I remember those days off from school when I was able to stay home and feed the cows with Papaw or Uncle Dennis.
    “Shoot some ether in her,” Papaw would say as he turned the key over on the old 2240 John Deere.

    “You don’t want to eat onions on Tuesdays because they make you sleepy,” said Thelma Taylor to a young journalism pup.
    Tuesday was and still is deadline day at The Cynthiana Democrat and if anyone knew the do’s and don’ts of deadlines, it was Thelma.
    She was the first woman to earn editor status for The Cynthiana Democrat and I know exactly how she did it. One word... caring.
    Thelma had a passion for Cynthiana and Harrison County and more importantly the people who make up that community.
