  • BBQ Throwdown a huge success

    By Stephanie Burden
    Main Street Program Director
    Cynthiana Main Street’s Downtown BBQ Throwdown was a huge success and a lot of fun.
    Last Saturday as part of the Cynthiana Super Saturday, Main Street hosted our first bar-b-que cook off.  We had five local participants bring their best bar-b-que to town.
    Who knew we had so many delicious bar-b-ques in the county.
    The public got to “vote” for their favorite bar-b-que and it sure wasn’t any easy choice.  Ultimately, only the top three could win.

  • Looks forward to Thursdays

    To the editor:
    As I throw back the covers - plant my feet on the floor - it’s Thursday.
    Cynthiana Democrat day.
    What will be on the front page this week. You’ll just have to keep busy and wait till the mailman comes. Oh boy there he is out the door to the mailbox back inside I sit at the table.
    Front page help for the Harvey victims, a group is going to take them supplies. There look, a Cynthiana native lives in Houston. Small world.

  • Reader enjoys Democrat

    To the editor:
    I can’t express how much I’m enjoying the Democrat again. I canceled when I received it on Wednesday of the next week. I am receiving it on Friday every week now. The Democrat has so much news. The article today about John Swinford was outstanding. This brought  lot of memories since I grew up in Harrison County.  Thank you Becky keep up the good work.

  • Moving forward, one step at a time

    By James Smith
    Mayor
    What a busy year the City of Cynthiana has had so far.  We have become the busiest little town in the state.  Everywhere I go, city officials from other cities are asking me how we’ve turned our city around so quickly.  
    I tell them, “We’ve got good people who love our town and are working hard to turn it around!”  

  • Peaceful protests have their place, even in Trump’s America

    For 27 years, every school day that I taught, began with either the National Anthem or the Pledge of Allegiance.
    The building principal, or his/her designee, came over the intercom and announced the National Anthem or led us in the Pledge of Allegiance.
    About half way through my teaching career, I began to have students refuse to stand for either of those.
