  • Last summer concert on Aug. 11

    The last concert in the Cynthiana Summer Concert Series is Aug. 11 at 8 p.m. featuring the Baja Yetis.
    The Baja Yetis is a new/old funky/jazzy jam band steeped in a gumbo of New Orleans Jazz, funk, rock, soul and more. They always put on a great show and we can’t wait for them to come to Cynthiana!

  • 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.

  • Excited about a new season of Game of Thrones!

     Regardless of what banner you fly within the world of Westeros, the time has come to return to the magical land once more.
     Game of Thrones Season 7 aired it’s first episode on July 27th, and it was one Hell of a way to kick off a season. Last seasons conclusion left fans with a decent idea of where the story would be picking up upon it’s return, but the GOT show runners pulled off one of the most impactful season premieres of any show I’ve ever seen.

    I am so stinkin’ proud of Cynthiana.
    Tuesday’s Joe B. Hall mural reveal was a wonderful showing of how Cynthiana and Harrison County people want to be included in this wonderful resurgence.
    I’m not a great guestimator as far as attendance at the reveal, but my best estimate is 300 or more.
