  • Honest ladies make sure purse is returned to rightful owner

    To the editor:

    Easter weekend this year proved to me that there are still good and honest people in this world. Late Saturday afternoon, April 11, I decided to go to Wal-Mart to get some lemon pie filling and crust for my niece’s birthday. I was informed it was her favorite pie. It also happens to be my husband’s favorite and Friday happened to be his birthday.

    There are three people I would like to thank; Doris, Sue and a lady whose name I do not know.

  • Smith brothers reach finals in Saturday’s competition

  • Rejection of the ‘Veterans Park’ name is a stab in the back to veterans

    To the editor:

    Recently the Director of Homeland Security spoke of a study that indicated our returning military personnel were candidates for enlistment into the ranks of right-wing terrorists.

    As if this were not bad enough, our local city council and fiscal court have some members that do not want to name the Handy Farm park “Veterans Park.”

    The community that researched the naming of the park was bounced around like a ping pong ball at an Olympic tournament.

    I understand there is to be a welcome home celebration in May for our troops.

  • Martin perfect as Breds take 3rd in McDonald’s Classic

    Junior pitcher Jared Martin tossed the second seven-inning perfect game in school history last Thursday as Harrison County defeated Simon Kenton 2-0 in the first game of the McDonald’s Classic.

    “I was aware of the perfect game after a few innings, but didn’t really worry about it at all,” said Martin. “The first batter of the game hit the ball hard to left field, but they didn’t hit too well after that.”

  • The name ‘Veterans Park’ should be supported as Handy Farm park name

    To the editor,

    We were extremely disappointed to read about the county court’s apparent rejection of the name “Veterans Park” for the Handy Farm Park. The Harrison County Tomorrow Committee is really working hard to move our county forward.

    Mr. Copes said that the committee considered it their authority to name the park. More simply, the committee held a “name the park” contest. We wonder -- were the 1,459 people who voted from out of the county? Most certainly they represented Harrison County. So why the fuss from Mr. Copes?

  • April 28 is named ‘Equal Pay Day’ by Harrison County leaders

    To the editor:

    On March 6, 2008 the Paycheck Fairness Act was re-introduced in the 110th Congress by Senator Clinton (D-NY) and Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT). According to the latest U.S. Census Bureau data, women continue to receive unequal pay for the same work; on average women earn 81 cents for every dollar a man. It has still not been passed into law.
