The boys enjoyed hearing and learning about the history of many items displayed. Our visit was topped off with Kenny Simpson&rsquo;s tour and history presentation of the old Harrison County Jail.<br /> The museum is truly a real treasure in the community. We look forward to visiting again in the future.</p> Mother laments son’s loss http://www.cynthianademocrat.com/content/mother-laments-son%E2%80%99s-loss <p> To the editor:</p> <p> After reading that Harrison Memorial Hospital was ranked fifth as one of best places to work in Kentucky.<br /> I had to respond.<br /> I just wish my late son, Jackie, had been working at a place like this.<br /> He came back home to Kentucky to work at a hospital, and buy his first home.<br /> He was hired in 2008, and fired in November of 2012.<br /> What a shame! This hospital could not have been like HMH.<br /> He took his life in December of 2012. Enough said.</p> <p> Nancy Taylor<br /> Cynthiana, Ky.</p> The thing that keeps you coming back http://www.cynthianademocrat.com/content/thing-keeps-you-coming-back <img src="http://www.cynthianademocrat.com/sites/www.cynthianademocrat.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/veterans.jpg" alt="" title="" align="left" hspace="6" width="87" height="85" /><p> My husband Ernie calls it a shot that keeps you coming back.
