    To the editor:

    This summer, we were in Cynthiana (where I grew up) and had lunch downtown on Walnut Street. Coming out of the restaurant, we nearly fell to our knees (literally) due to the condition of the sidewalk. They are mostly rubble. Deplorable, embarrassing and unbelievable. Why     is this? Does nobody care anymore?

    I love both, but I had to give up on sweets. My hope is I won’t have to give up on my football  players. That is about all I have to watch on television, as the news is hard to listen to. Some of my players are as bad as the news. 

  • Here’s what ‘farm-to-table’ really means

    This Friday night, Court Street downtown Cynthiana will be transformed to host Cynthiana Main Street’s Farm-to-Table Dinner. 

    Although this fundraising event is sold out, I wanted to share some thoughts behind the Farm-to-Table movement.

    Have you heard of Farm-to-Table dinners? Farm-to-Fork? Seed-to-Feed? 

    As you know, there are many names used to describe this dinner and many ideas on what the dinner really is. I’ve tried to recap what I have learned after researching for our event.

    The Daughters of the American Revolution lobbied for a week to be set aside to celebrate the U.S. Constitution  many, many years ago.

    Finally, President Dwight D. Eisenhower agreed in 1956, and set aside the week of Sept. 17-23 as U.S. Constitution Week, and it has remained that way ever since.

    So here we are, celebrating U.S. Constitution Week, though very few people know that we are celebrating.

    Twenty-five years ago this Sept. 15, 1991, the C&W Horse Show Arena had its opening show, sponsored by the Cynthiana Jacees.

    This county event was overwhelmingly attended with over 100 horses entered in the 20 some odd classes scheduled for the show and all riders and spectators enjoying the show.

    We cannot thank the residents of Harrison County enough for the outpouring of support that we have received for the displaced animals of Louisiana after the recent devastating floods. What a caring and compassionate community we live in - Americans helping Americans and Farmers helping Farmers.
