  • Berry Mayor responds to “concerned citizen”

    To the editor:
    This letter is in response to a “Concerned Citizen” letter to the editor which appeared in the June 29 edition of the Cynthiana Democrat. Let me begin by thanking all who worked so hard to make the festival happen, along with all the people who graciously donated prizes and services for the event.  
    I sincerely hope that her comments do not deter volunteers and committee members from wanting to help with the festival and do what is best for the majority of Berry citizens.

  • To Bail or not to Bale

    To the editor:
    I smiled when I read Lee Kendall’s remarks in the Viewpoint article of the July 20th edition of the Democrat about the misuse of certain words that sound alike but have different meanings. This has been one of my pet peeves over the last few years. It just sends my head spinning when I hear or read the English Language being butchered at the extent it is today. No one seems to really care if they sound intelligent or completely uneducated. I wanted to congratulate Lee for expressing his (and my) opinions of the use of proper English.

  • Newcomer loved the Fair

    To the editor:
    The Fair was awesome. I moved down here from Northern Kentucky about three years ago. I went to all the local festivals up there and as far as I’m concerned ya’ll take a backseat to no one. Well done.
    P.S. Maybe a demolition derby next year, people love crashes!

  • “Grammer misteaks,” cheese-wagons and the eclipse

    All letters to the editor must be confirmed before they make it to print.
    This means that someone from the Cynthiana Democrat must call the person who submits the letter and verify that they in fact did send that letter.
    On Monday, my office mate Robin Smiley, smiled and gave me a letter to confirm.
    Nothing out of the ordinary here, except for that grin on Robin’s face.
    The job of confirming these letters usually falls to me. I don’t mind. It’s a quick and painless process.
