    To the editor:
    Today’s editorial (Jan. 25) by Lee Kendall was the best on legalization of cannabis I have ever read! He was well-informed, truthful and honest.
    No doubt, he will be criticized by ill-informed, untruthful and dishonest people.
    I was a social worker for one year, a probation officer for four years and a cop for 21 years. I know what works and what does not.
    I remember when the “War on Drugs” started in the late 1960s. Not only did we lose that war, it is now the leading cause of death in the US. Why?

  • Legislative update from Sen. Steve West

    Words cannot begin to express the shock and sadness felt throughout the Commonwealth and around the country on Tuesday when an active shooter opened fire at Marshall County High School in Benton, Kentucky, taking two innocent students’ lives and injuring 18 others.

  • Valentine boxes, visiting friends and Crape Myrtles

    Remember the big box of Valentines where you placed your paper hearts, arrows and funny character pictures that held words such as Be Mine, Sweet to the Sweet, Guess Who?
    A little later when you were in middle school, Valentines would grow to heart-shaped candies and cards in a real envelope. Then there was the day you were promoted all the way to a heart-shaped box of chocolate candy—absolutely guaranteed to deliver pimples along with the sweetheart’s wish that you would honor him with a smile.

  • Viewpoint

    What do you see as your respected news source?
    We’ve heard a lot recently about fake news and have even been shown instances where it has spread.
    One thing that comes to mind is the young woman who claimed she became incapacitated after having had a flu shot.
    Many of us watched the video of her struggling to walk forward. She could walk backwards or she could run. However, she demonstrated -- for the camera -- that her ability to advance was impaired, as was her speech.

  • Open house at St. Edward’s, Jan. 28

    ynthiana for well over a century is Saint Edward Catholic School. So central in fact that it sits in the center of a block, in the center of town, facing the Cynthiana Public Library.
    Saint Edward Catholic School has always been on this block, first serving Cynthiana students before, during, and for a few years following the Civil War. The school then closed temporarily when the building was repurposed due to fast-growing parish which needed the space.

    To the editor:
    I recently attended the Retirement celebration of Assistant Chief Darrin Hawkins, a fire fighter for 27 years. My vote as a City official helped to hire this good man who proved himself as an examplary employee time and time again. I am so proud of him. He retires now deeply caring about his co-workers, the city and its people.
    He has already lined up some volunteer jobs such as helping with the Boy Scouts and the Cynthiana Fire Department.
