    Growing up, my brother, sisters and I never realized that we were poor. We just knew that we did not have everything that the other kids had, but we had all that we needed. Clothes, food on the table, a warm bed at night and two parents that sacrificed and loved us dearly.

  • Memories of lace curtains. apple trees and dodging parents

    August looms and as it does it brings with it the beginning of a turn in the season, but it hasn’t always been that way. Looking back and remembering Augusts when I was young, a longgg time ago, it seemed then to be one more long month of summer vacation stretching out in the brilliant sunshine.
    One had done quite a bit of running, swimming, exploring and generally aggravating mothers by the first of August, and we kids were looking for new ways to use up the riches of no school and good weather.

    To the editor:
    On Monday, July 17, 2017 in Cynthiana, Kentucky the Bill of Rights, the United States Constitution the socio-economic status of the nation and democracy itself was spared by the passing of an ordinance to allow Sunday alcohol sales in Cynthiana. Or at least that is what some would have you believe in the speeches made in support of the sales.
    It is not hard to see how the lost in Cynthiana have no problem with this. I couldn’t  figure out why I have a problem with it myself until thinking about it in depth. It finally dawned on me.
