There&rsquo;s also a huge chance that someone would be omitted by the mere fact that they worked behind the scenes and were not out front with a bull horn.<br /> I have covered, or at least been in town, for each of the four Rod Runs in Cynthiana. And each time I walk away with an all encompassing feeling of wow.<br /> It&rsquo;s not that I&rsquo;m so involved in classic cars, although there were a couple that I wouldn&rsquo;t be embarrassed to drive away in ... just a couple.<br /> Those who helped with Rod Run appreciated http://www.cynthianademocrat.com/content/those-who-helped-rod-run-appreciated <p> To the editor:<br /> Thanks to Rod Run committee http://www.cynthianademocrat.com/content/thanks-rod-run-committee <p> To the editor:<br /> I want to give a BIG shout out to Jerry Adams and his hardworking staff for the outstanding job they did this year on the Rod Run. They worked countless hours planning and preparing for this event. There was a great crowd, and who knows how many vehicles and vendor booths galore. Also the Lord blessed us with really beautiful weather.<br /> This is something Cynthiana should be proud of and in my opinion is the biggest and best event this little town has.<br /> Again, thanks to Jerry and his staff for all their efforts. Great job guys.<br /> <br /> Crossword Puzzle Solution http://www.cynthianademocrat.com/content/crossword-puzzle-solution-73 <img src="http://www.cynthianademocrat.com/sites/www.cynthianademocrat.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/8-20-15_cw_solution.jpg" alt="" title="" align="left" hspace="6" width="85" height="85" /> Crossword Puzzle http://www.cynthianademocrat.com/content/crossword-puzzle-91 <img src="http://www.cynthianademocrat.com/sites/www.cynthianademocrat.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/8-20-15_cw_puzzle.jpg" alt="" title="" align="left" hspace="6" width="57" height="85" /><p> ACROSS<br /> 1.
