  • Kudos to River Road Park board, director and employees

    To the editor:

    Harrison County Recreation Board of Directors and its Director Rick Chasteen, along with their employees of River Road Park, deserve recognition and commendation for their outstanding efforts in revitalizing the baseball fields and facility. Not many weeks ago, the park’s renovation was stricken with nature’s effects and it was doubtful that activities could begin in a timely manner. However, with hard work and dedication of park employees, and many Harrison County citizens, the youth baseball and softball programs were able to begin on time.

  • Saying thanks: It’s a good thing

    I will always believe that ‘thank you’ goes a long way.

    In my office at The Cynthiana Democrat, on the bulletin board beside my 2010 content improvement plan, a Harrison County school calendar and a piece of paper listing phone numbers for city commissioners, there’s an array of ‘thank you’ notes.

    I keep each one I receive.

    And on days when a little pick-me-up is much needed, I look no further than those cards that remind me why I do what I do.
