Columns

  • Thanking those who make it all work

    Often when we say thank you... we usually forget some of the names or the smaller people who make accomplishments possible.
    If you recall an article written in the December 30, 2010 edition of the Cynthiana Democrat, there was a column written by our own Becky Barnes.
    The column was a tribute to the men and women who have served Harrison County and Cynthiana faithfully for their elected terms as well as the agencies that provide a service to the county and the city.

  • Trash
  • Flora
  • County shows slight growth

    We’ve grown a little. Not by leaps and bounds mind you, but certainly a respectable increase.
    Since the 2000 Census where Harrison County recorded an 18,250 population, we’ve experienced a 3.27 percent rise to 18,846, according to statistics released this month.

  • Pony Parade
  • Much-debated Medicaid issue closes with solution from Representatives

    FRANKFORT – After nearly two months’ worth of work, several weeks of intense debate and a long day on Thursday, the Kentucky House of Representatives finalized the legislative session’s most pressing issue: Closing a sizeable deficit in Medicaid.
    Our approach was a little different, but the end result accomplished what we wanted, which was to keep the solution within the healthcare program and not needlessly cut millions of dollars out of our classrooms, our local governments, our veteran services and dozens of other state agencies.

  • Buena Vista School 1931-32

  • One dollar subscription receipts
  • Random thoughts from a reporter’s perspective

    You know, writing something that is of interest to the public every week may sound like an easy job, but I beg to differ.
    It is my week to write a column that has some kind of human interest to it.
    I am drawing the biggest blank and find it hard to fill up the space where my picture and story goes.
    I thought that I might just start talking about my week and see how far that gets me. Please don’t hold anything personal against me.
    For starters, Bass Webb was in Harrison County for a status hearing.

  • We’ve come a long way, baby

    In just a few weeks I will celebrate 35 years at The Cynthiana Democrat.
    Hard to believe I have been here this long. When I started, my colleagues and mentors referred to me as “the baby,” since I was barely 18 years old and had just graduated from high school.
    The day I was hired, I was asked to immediately go to work that afternoon... no drug test, no physical, no typing test and no computer!
