  • Those that "cheat the system" don't win at end of day

    One of the things I love most about my job is getting to talk to people, especially those people that have a passion for what they do.

    I talked to many passionate individuals this holiday season.

    I believe Christmas couldn’t have come at a better time for all of us this year. With the economy at record bottom and so many families struggling to make ends meet, it was such a breath of fresh air to welcome the hope of Christmas into the community.

    And that’s where the passionate individuals enter.

  • During the best of times and worst of times, God's help never comes too late

    With apologies to Charles Dickens, it truly was the best of times and the worst of times.

    I had just learned I was pregnant with our now- 25-year-old daughter. We had wanted another child, and the news was definitely in the best of times category. It remained best and blissful for about a month until the worst of times began.

    I can still see my husband walking across the yard of our apartment complex toward our back gate. It was the middle of the morning as he handed me a check and said, “I lost my job — I got laid off.”

  • Religion brings answers during troubled times

    To the editor:

    We have embarked together into this New Year. “Ye have not passed this way heretofore,” (Joshua 3:4). “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come,....” (11 Tim. 3:1-17). Study the text carefully and be prepared.

  • Christmas birthday isn't all jingles, but does have perks

    It’s hard celebrating your birthday with Jesus.

    Don’t get me wrong... if there’s anyone I would like to share birthday associations with, it would be the main man himself. I’m just saying, it’s a little difficult sharing the spotlight with someone referred to as the Savior.

    My Christmas birthday has always been somewhat of a struggle, if you will.

    The first struggle I’ve always encountered has been the disbelief of the audience.

    “You’re a Christmas baby?” they ask, eyes wide.

  • Soldier Support Group thanks community

    To the editor,

    I, personally, and on behalf of the Soldier Support Group, would like to thank everyone that helped to make our Christmas boxes for our troops a success.

    I am very thankful and proud that I can call Cynthiana and Harrison County my home. Ask anyone in town, “Whats happening?” and the answer is always, “nothing ever happens here.” But this past year I’ve had the pleasure to learn and get to know that there is all types of things happening.

    Dear Editor:

  • Holiday season can be tough for those still grieving

    By Mary McKenzie, Hospice grief counselor

    As the holidays surround us, the absence of a loved one continues to remind us that it is not going to be the same this year. Even though it has been in the back of our minds; it really was so far away, and now it is here. Holiday grief contains elements of dread.
