  • * Cynthiana Democrat, 1896 - “The latest improved machinery is in use at the pumping station; the standpipe is of immense capacity. The city waterworks, aided by a well organized and thoroughly disciplined fire department, afford almost invincible protection against fire. The streets are brilliantly illuminated with electric lights - arc lights principally - and the majority of the residences are likewise lighted. A complete telephone system is in operation. Two telegraph companies, the Western Union and Postal, furnish every facility in their line.

  • Two weeks ago I asked “what more Mother Nature?”  Well, another gusty wind storm was served up adding to the collection of debris left by the ice storm. 

    Some serious questions are coming in about what to take out and what to try and save.  I am not a certified arborist, but I can pass on the guidelines that certified arborists are taught when it comes to tree assessment and risk management. 

    These criteria may help you decide what to do now and in the future.

  • I suspect most of you have no idea about the person and the saintly episode that is commemorated each Feb. 14 by friends, family and most importantly, lovers. In fact, there are several versions of how the most romantic Saint became a commercial success.

    One story about St. Valentine has its origins in third century Rome where the Emperor Claudius II outlawed marriage for young single men because he valued them more as young warriors. A priest by the name of Valentine defied the law and continued to secretly marry the young soldiers who were in love.
