  • Cynthiana Main Street

    Throughout the year Cynthiana Main Street will be fundraising to help support projects downtown. Currently, we have two t-shirts on sale. One of our t-shirts was inspired by a local resident, Harmon Moore.  Many of you know Harmon and if you see the gray shirt, you’ll see Harmon on his bike, smiling like he always does.

    Is a new fire station
    necessary?

    To the editor:
    I understand there is a movement in this city to purchase property for the purpose of building a new fire station. First of all, either the Democrat hasn’t reported the need for a new station or the city commissioners haven’t given their reason.
    Frankly, I cannot see the need for a new station, since we presently have two, one on the east side of the railroad tracks and one on the west.

  • Houston’s problems slowly going away

    It is with great appreciation that I can announce that a lawn tractor has been donated to Kenneth Houston by a Cynthiana church.
    Kenneth is the volunteer who works tirelessly to see that Cynthiana’s downtown area is less marred by debris. He shovels dirt and picks up garbage that is carelessly thrown on the ground.
    He does this seven days a week in some of the worst weather conditions.
