  • Downtown Cynthiana sees an exciting growth

    In my books, Cynthiana is starting to boom again. Within the last year, we have had several new businesses locate downtown in our brick-and-mortar storefronts.
    This is very important to our community.  
    Mark Twain famously remarked, “The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated” after a newspaper erroneously reported his passing.
    Similarly, the reports of the death of brick-and-mortar stores have been greatly exaggerated.

  • Viewpoint

    Shortly after the Constitutional Convention of 1787 completed its work, a woman named Mrs. Powell approached one of the key figures of the convention, Benjamin Franklin, and asked, “Mr. Franklin, what do we have, a republic or a monarchy?”
    Franklin didn’t hesitate, “a republic, if we can keep it.”
    Simply put, a republic is a form of government where the citizens have the opportunity to elect the officials that will run their government.

  • Seeking support of a worthy cause

  • ‘Scam predators do not care how honest or vulnerable you are, in fact they like you best when you are at your weakest’

    Recently I was in a meeting with seven people of different ages, and I realized that they all lived alone. It was not on the meeting agenda, but we drifted into a conversation about having to deal with harassing intrusions into our lives. It was immediately obvious that these threats were causing harmful stress in their lives.
    For some time I have not addressed this topic, mainly because I feared it would seem I was taking advantage of my own personal situation. However, I worry that so many innocent people find themselves victim to media predators and worse.
