  • Adams thanks community for donations and assistance

    To the editor:

    My name is Richard Adams. We just moved to Cynthiana on April 3, 2009, when our house burned down. We lost just about everything.

    But the little town of Harrison County came to my family’s rescue.

    I would like to thank the people of Harrison County for the donations they have given to my family. I would like to thank Brad and Tonya Clark, Ron and Cynthia Jenkins, John and Rae-Jean Slusher and of course, my brother, Jerry and his wife Tunya Adams, all of Living Hope Assembly of God.

  • Shade garden now in the sun?

    The environments of many of our landscapes have changed because of storm damage to trees. A once shady refuge beneath a tree may now be baking in the sun.

    For a garden with an eastern exposure, this may not be a deal breaker, but if the garden faces west, the afternoon sun will surely stress shade tolerant plants by the time summer rolls around.

  • Qualified help needed, not just an answering service

    To the editor:

    I want to point out that 911 is a valuable asset to our community. However, when I called at midnight feeling desperate, they couldn’t tell me what to do. They said they could send me an ambulance, but recommended I call the hospital emergency room on how to stop the bleeding.

    My seventeen-year-old son ran a knife into the palm of his hand, severing a vein - blood was squirting like a fountain. I panicked and couldn’t even think what to do.

    “Call 911! They’ll know,” I said to myself.
