  • Kennedy shares Thanksgiving psalm with readers

    Gracious God,

    In this time of flux and uncertainty, when our nation and our neighbors are in turmoil, searching for peace and prosperity or just a chance to catch a breath, you remain constant and sovereign.

    You are King over our sorrows as well as our joys. You are Lord over all that concerns us in the daytime, all that keeps us awake at night, all that drives us to our knees. In that, we can rest and trust and renew our strength. In that, in your sovereignty, we can give you thanks.

  • Arena closing after 17 years; family recalls its history

    To the editor:

    On Sept. 21, 1991, 17 years ago, the C&W Horse Show Arena held its first show. The show was sponsored by the Cynthiana Jaycees with a wonderful response. One hundred horses came to take part in the show classes, games, and running events for all ages.

    This was the beginning of a fun filled adventure that has produced many wonderful memories for us.

    We met people from all over Kentucky and into Ohio, watched children learning to ride and showing their horses. Now we see those children’s little ones riding.

  • Family thanks church, family, community, friends and God

    To the editor:

    The family of Mr. and Mrs. Baker on Third Street of Cynthiana would like to thank God first for answering our prayer’s, and also a family member Patsy Fryman, who was a very concerned neighbor of ours that knew our mother needed a roof put on her home very badly.

  • Commissioner rebukes column

    To the editor:

  • Former candidate remains concerned about school’s “lunch meat” results

     

    To the editor:

    My wife and I greatly enjoyed talking to folks we found at home during my recent campaign for the Board of Education. I am most grateful to those that voted for me. I would guess they are people I talked with who know that I am only concerned with academic excellence for all children.

  • Family thankful for help with relocation of son’s trailor

    To the editor:

  • With Obama’s historic win, prejudice is questioned

    To the editor:

    First of all I did not think that the headline of The Cynthiana Democrat on Thursday, Nov. 6, was very appropriate to state: “Obarna beats McCain, but not here. “

    I feel that the paper did not show good journalism, it was disrespectful, and not in good taste with many of the minority issues and relationships that still plague our communities in Kentucky.

    The news of the Obama victory only garnered enough interest from the paper to be on the third page along with the vote tally of the other candidates.

  • Prank could have caused injury or death

    To the editor:

    This is a letter to the kid on the school bus who threw the paint ball on the car traveling behind the bus.

    This is my sister-in-law and her husband. She was driving and the paint was all over the windshield and car. She could not see and there could have been a serious accident.

    They are an elderly couple, in very poor health and dearly loved by the community.

    When you do wrong it always comes back to you. If you don’t learn this now, you are going to have a sorry life.
