  • I like all animals. I like that I live in the country and get to see all kinds of creatures, but when they get my blueberries before me or when they open the birdseed can in the middle of the night or when they dig up flower pots or nibble off the tops of perennials or...well, you surely understand. 
    This year our barn has hosted a young squirrel family. I have grown found of the baby squirrels as I watched them navigate their new surroundings.

  • Agricultural producers are reminded to consult with FSA and NRCS before breaking out new ground for production purposes as doing so without prior authorization may put a producer’s federal farm program benefits in jeopardy. This is especially true for land that must meet Highly Erodible Land (HEL) and Wetland Conservation (WC) provisions.
    Producers with HEL determined soils are required to apply tillage, crop residue and rotational requirements as specified in their conservation plan.

    Cynthiana Presbyterian Church invites children from Preschool through 5th grade to experience being a Hero for God at Hero Central Vacation Bible School.

  • Sometimes you go to church and you hear the same stuff over and over.
    Sometimes it flies over your head or you’re thinking about what’s for lunch and the pastor sounds like the teacher in the Charlie Brown cartoons going, “Waah, waah, waah,” and you have no idea what he said.
    And sometimes you hear something that you’ve heard before but for some reason it’s like you’re hearing it for the first time. Or maybe it’s the thing that you needed to hear precisely at that moment.

  • I love backpacking. The thought of putting 40 pounds of food and gear on your back and traipsing 50 miles through the wilderness doesn’t appeal to everyone, but to me, it’s one of my favorite things to do.  
    When I was in my early 20’s, I went backpacking in New Mexico with a bunch of scouts to Philmont Scout Ranch.  A great group of guys.
