    I always enjoy hearing stories from my parents about the days when they were growing up in Cynthiana and how things were so much simpler and less complicated than they are today.
    They both attended Cynthiana High School and both walked to school every day, as did almost all of their classmates.
    Basketball games were played at City Hall and the Dixie Corner was a favorite hangout for the high school set.
    One of their friends was a few classes older than them. His name was Joe Beasman Hall, better known as “Joe B.”

  • Check unclaimed property from state treasurer

    To the editor:
    The Kentucky State Treasurer’s (KST) office administers Kentucky’s Unclaimed Property fund.  Over the years the fund has grown to an amazing total of just over $500 million.  Yes, that is a 5 with 8 zeros!

We are thankful for the safety and try to understand how air currents can cause a bounce just like driving a car down our roads.
    Road maintenance is made, but smoother roads are needed which can be made; that is beyond my expertise.

  • Green beans, Arsenic and graduation

    First garden report: The green onions are thriving and some have found their way into a casserole already.
    Potatoes are happy, radishes will be ready in a jiffy and the green beans look a little bewildered. They are crowded for sure, and what, if anything, turns out from them in this experiment will be interesting at least.

  • Local media serves a purpose for Harrison County

    I admit that I have ink in my blood. It’s an old cliche, but after 41 years, I feel comfortable making that proclamation.
    I can reach back to the 1960s and remember sitcom sets where someone was reading a newspaper.
    Jackie Gleason (Ralph) opened nearly every show with him sitting at the kitchen table, newspaper in hand and coffee nearby. Somewhere in the background Sue Ann Langdon (Alice) was seeing what she could do to annoy her husband.
