A new year has begun and one question we should all ask ourselves is... Are we going to help change anything for the better?
I have been working for The Cynthiana Democrat for over two years now.
During the first months of my employment, I took on the task of following the Harrison County Fiscal Court meetings.
A major observation that I feel that I am more than qualified in making is the lack of community interest in what goes on in the meetings twice a month.
To the editor:
I would like to express my appreciation for all workers with Bluegrass Energy who worked around the clock to restore electricity to Harrison County. I especially would like to commend the dispatchers who took calls from customers, they were very nice and explained the situation as they knew it. I know it was difficult for them, and that customers can be very demanding and rude, (not that I would ever be, LOL). Again, thanks.
I remember thinking “Eweh” several years ago when I heard about the man who inadvertently dropped his dentures in the toilet but was able to retrieve them a few days later at Cynthiana’s Waste Water Treatment Plant.
Why would you want those suckers back?
Oh the places they’ve traveled! The last place they would travel would be the waste water treatment plant as far as I would have been concerned.
No. He popped those babies into some Polident and right back onto his gums they nestled.

As we celebrate the holidays and ready for the new year, many of us may find ourselves taking a moment to recall the positive things in our lives.
Statewide, there has been some good news in recent months worth noting. The job market overall is looking somewhat better, with the state’s unemployment rate down, and we’re working on improving the economy here in our legislative district.
