  • Government assistance isn’t fair

    To the editor:

    This is in regards to a previous letter to the editor about government assistant programs.

    I was told to divorce my husband, then I could get health care and other assistance. I am a diabetic and was told this in 2004. My husband of 43 years has had five bypass surgeries and six stints since 1993. He finally decided to stop working in 2001, after being told stress of work was causing his heart more harm.

  • Postal food drive is a success

    To the editor:

    It is hard to put into words the thanks and gratitude to the people of this city and county for your generosity and support of the Harrison County Food Pantry. You just out did yourself again this year. Over 4,000 pounds of food was collected. A great big thank you goes to our postal employees that collect and weigh all this food. I know this is extra work, time and effort on their part, but without them, this would not be a success.

  • Park activities should be moved to Flat Run Veterans

    To the editor:

    This is a first for me - a letter to the editor - but there’s something I need to say to our city and county officials after the last flood. I’m very proud of the job that our current recreation director, Rick Chasteen, has and is doing at River Road Park. However, we’re still at River Road Park and not moving very fast, if at all, to the new park we have on Oddville Avenue. Let’s do what’s best for the kids and residents of the county - move to the new park and empty space we have there.

  • Berry Festival is scheduled for June 5; volunteers needed

    To the editor:

    I want to thank everyone who has made a contribution of any kind to the Berry Festival, which is scheduled for June 5, from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Without the support of friends and businesses around the county, we would not be able to have our festival each year.

  • Citizen should have the right to sell flowers in town

    To the editor:

    I’m wondering what has happened to our town. My caretaker, Angie Dawson grows flowers and sells hanging baskets. She had been trained with the Farmers Market, but did not want to sell at the park this year, so she went to the Mayor and County Judge and purchased her license to sell here in town.

  • No help for working people

    To the editor:

    I would like to address the problem that working people have when it come to getting any kind of government help.
