  • Court must consider local economy in salary vote

    During last week’s Harrison County Fiscal Court meeting, county leaders discussed giving pay raises to county employees.

    Judge Alex Barnett recommended a 5 percent increase “based on the financial condition” of the county.

    From the discussions around the table it appeared magistrates were weighing in on both sides of the issue. However, all were in agreement that the men and women who make up the county’s payroll work hard. That’s never been the issue.

  • Meeting time isn’t conducive for citizens

    Since the middle of August, The Cynthiana Democrat has published four articles and five letters to the editor regarding the proposed zone change at the Business Park.

    By now, readers are aware that United Propane Gas asked for the zone change in the corner lot of the industrial park, which neighbors Connersville Pike.

    The proposed request asked that the lot be rezoned ‘heavy industrial’ to allow for the storage of propane gas.

  • The Christmas Story

    In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to his own town to register.

  • 'Like an old, true friend, Christmas will soon be visiting again’

    It’s before Thanksgiving, I know.

    I’m reluctant to even admit this, but I must confess... I have already started listening to Christmas music.

    Gasp.

    This weekend, while traveling on the Bluegrass Parkway to Bowling Green, Ky., I became extremely tired of driving.

    The Bluegrass Parkway has this effect on many. Stretching from Lexington to Elizabethtown, the journey is half of the three-hour trek I make many weekends to see my fiancé Andrew.

  • Book of Revelation gives glimpse of heaven

        Revelation 21 tells of the start of the eternal day and what God has prepared for all of his people. No other passages in the Bible are like the last two chapters of Revelation. “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and first earth are passed away and there is no longer any sea.  And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for husband.”

  • Facts are all you’ll find here

    “Just the facts, ma’am,” said Sgt. Joe Friday in nearly every segment of Dragnet.

    Jack Webb portrayed Sgt. Friday in probably the first of many cop shows. He used that statement when a witness strayed too far from what he or she actually knew to be true and began to delve into hearsay or rumor.

    I pulled those profound words from my memory recently when a plethora of rumors began circulating through our community gossip mill. Funny how they apply to my job as well.

    “Just the facts.”
