  • Mailbag

    The last day to submit candidate endorsements to be published in the Cynthiana Democrat will be the May primary is Friday, May 4, by 5 p.m. Letters received after that time will not be published.
    As the 2018 election draws near candidates will begin lining up their followers to write endorsement letters to the newspaper.
    We welcome those local letters. Local being the operative word here.

    To the editor:
    I am writing to show my continued support for Harrison County Sheriff Shain Stephens.
    On a personal level, I have known Shain for decades and consider him to be a valued friend. When my son married his daughter, we became family. While this is important, it is not the reason I’m supporting Shain in his bid to be re-elected.
    I support Shain Stephens for Sheriff because of the following:
    •His experience
    •His compassion for his fellow man
    •His efforts to eradicate drugs from Harrison County

  • Hemp ... a product with many uses

    We are just around a month away from the first annual Kentucky Hemp Days festival held right here in Cynthiana. On Saturday, June 9, downtown Cynthiana will be a hub of information, vendors and speakers on the hemp industry and its impact on Kentucky.
    Did you know that Harrison County hosts the first and largest hemp crop in decades? We are so excited for this event. Before we get into more details, lets talk about hemp.

    Congratulations to Tomi Jean Clifford for the honors that are coming her way.
    She is thinking big for Cynthiana and Harrison County with her plans for the coming Hemp Days.
    Two weeks ago at the regular fiscal court meeting, she said she hoped that the inaugural Hemp Days, scheduled for Saturday, June 9, will evolve into something as big, or bigger than long-standing events that other communities have.
    Even though our celebration is just one day, Hemp Days, which is plural, might give some indication as to her thinking.

  • Candidate endorsements deadline is May 4 for May 22 primary

    As the 2018 election draws near candidates will begin lining up their followers to write endorsement letters to the newspaper.
    We welcome those local letters. Local being the operative word here.
    We won’t accept letters of mass mailings. With e-mail so prevalent, it’s tougher to determine “mass mailings.” However, if someone sends a letter from Indianapolis endorsing one of our local hopefuls, it’s pretty obvious that it’s from a mailing list.

  • Help build our ‘pocket park’

    Have you ever heard of a pocket park?
    According to Wikipedia, a pocket park is a small park accessible to the general public, pocket parks are frequently created on a single vacant building lot or on small, irregular pieces of land.
    Cynthiana Main Street is excited to announce that we are building a pocket park downtown. The city has a vacant gravel lot on South Main Street that we want to turn into a nice, clean inviting space downtown.
