  • Getting lost, then discovering I was on the right path all along

    My first drive up to Cynthiana was breathtaking. Living in Lexington for three years, I had never truly seen “horse country.” I thought horse country was Lexington. But the drive on US 27 is lush, rolling hills and acres of farm land.

    To the editor:

    On Sunday August 3rd, coach Jim Carr & staff brought the HCHS football team to Elmarch United Methodist Church for a time of worship & fellowship.followed by a good meal. This was the final day of his football camp. I commend him for doing this.
    Thank God he has the courage and heart to conclude his camp with a day of worship. What we plant today, we will reap tomorrow and these are good  seeds planted by a good man. Whether his team wins or loses, they have already won in the eyes of the Lord.

    I would like to thank each of the businesses that contributed to success of the camp; from the basketball shirts, pizza, tacos, cookies, ice cream and sundaes.
    Thanks to parents, grandparents, and anonymous donors for sponsoring the kids. This was the best camp to date. Cynthiana is a great community to live in.
    Support our Thorobreds this coming season. Gonna be a fun ride.
