  • * City Council Meeting, June 18, 1867 -- “A. J. Beale is appointed a committee to have chairs  belonging to the council room re-bottomed.” (2018-Do you know anyone who does this type of work today?)
    * Log Cabin, Nov. 25, 1905 -- “Ad - A passenger  and express wagon is being run between Cynthiana and Claysville every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday by Mr. A. J. Cooper. Passengers, etc. solicited.”

  • The wet summer so far has made for a great weed season and some soggy looking vegetable gardens.
    Those that are part of the fungi family are having a real ball. Gardeners are wondering about the toadstools popping up in their lawns; others are confounded by the stinky, phallic-looking things poking through their mulch, a mushroom commonly called the stinkhorn; and the slimy orange globs on cedar trees got many thinking aliens had landed in their landscape. 

  • Michelle Barnett of Cynthiana has received the first annual Bernie Vonderheide Award for Outstanding Service to Residents from the Nursing Home Ombudsman Agency of the Bluegrass Inc.
    Since 2014, Barnett has been a friend and confidante to residents at Parkside Manor and Shady Lawn in Harrison County. As a certified ombudsman, she educates residents, families, and facility staff about the special legal rights of long-term care residents.

  • I am often reminded by God to think before you speak. A great policy for anyone. We sometimes pretend that words don’t mean much, but they are incredibly powerful! In the Old Testament story of the Tower of Babel, God wanted to halt their building project.
    The book of Genesis tells us that they were building a tower so high that they began to be filled with pride. To stop the project, God took away their most important tool. Not the hammers or chisels, He took away their ability to communicate.

  • When I was a kid, my grandmother on my father’s side owned a bakery.
    Whenever we’d visit her we would come home with huge pink bakery boxes filled with assorted butter cookies, plus bags of bagels and loaves of bread and the best cinnamon rolls and bear claws you could ever eat.
    Fun fact: My dad used to say that when Uncle Benny swept the floor at night, whatever he swept up was what he put on the bear claws as toppings.
    I’m pretty sure he was joking, or else he wanted to gross us out so he could eat all the bear claws.

  • Life is full of changes. The seasons of the year give us an example of that. Winter gives way to spring which quickly changes to summer heat.  These are all routine changes that happen every year.  Still there remain other events that occur that place more stress upon us. 
    Some have just graduated and are anxious about their future. Others are moving to a new location and are facing the strain of a new life in a strange place.
    Still there are others who have recently married, undergone a divorce, lost a loved one or are enduring health problems. 

  • One of my favorite authors is Anne Lamott.
    I don’t agree with her politics or her theology, but she loves Jesus with a raw, earthy, profound and honest love.
    She’s a recovering alcoholic and is not shy about openly telling her story.
    In her book, “Traveling Mercies,” she writes about what she sarcastically calls her “beautiful moment of conversion.”
    It was during the week after her abortion when she stayed home, smoked dope and got drunk.
