    To the editor:
    The legislature is considering House Bill 2, a constitutional amendment to allow local governments to add a one percent local sales tax. You would pay a seven percent tax instead of the current six percent. It will negatively impact Kentucky businesses, consumers and the economy of Kentucky.

  • Spring Cleaning on Main Street


    Spring has finally arrived. The first thing that comes to my mind is spring cleaning. For some reason, every year when spring arrives I get the notion to spring clean.

    To the editor:
    I have written this before and now I’m going to say it again. I hope someone will comment about this issue. I think we need a homeless shelter here in Cynthiana. There are homeless people in our town that need a place to lay their heads down at night. Surely, if our town can afford putting in many other things that we really don’t need, it can afford to put in a homeless shelter that we do need.

  • Networking is benefit for Chamber membership

    The Chamber offers many opportunities for business owners and employees to network, make connections and help find new ways to encourage growth within their company or business.
    One example is the upcoming Chamber luncheon. Each month, the Chamber holds a networking luncheon or breakfast, which is sponsored by participating business (which means its free to you, courtesy of said business). Different speakers come in to speak to Chamber members on community, state or educational happenings.
