  • If growth is requested, then it should be supported

    These sure are scary times. National and state budgets are strained, unemployment rates are at record highs, businesses are cutting back and local governments are declaring bankruptcy.

    It seems that now, more than ever, there’s little hope for the growth of a small community like Cynthiana and Harrison County.

    Long before our nation found itself in an economic crisis, many of us were scratching our heads and pondering what we could do to make our hometown of Cynthiana a success.

  • Memorial fund started at MCTC-LVC in memory of Derek Webber

    To the editor:

       The outpouring of love and support that so many of you have shown to me and my family at the loss of our son, Derek, has warmed our hearts and reminded us once again how lucky we are to live in this community.

  • Who is St. Valentine, anyway?

    I suspect most of you have no idea about the person and the saintly episode that is commemorated each Feb. 14 by friends, family and most importantly, lovers. In fact, there are several versions of how the most romantic Saint became a commercial success.

    One story about St. Valentine has its origins in third century Rome where the Emperor Claudius II outlawed marriage for young single men because he valued them more as young warriors. A priest by the name of Valentine defied the law and continued to secretly marry the young soldiers who were in love. 

  • Those who vandalize cemeteries will have to answer to a higher authority

    To the editor,

    In regard to Ms. Ritchie’s letter. Join the club!

    This past Memorial Day I placed a saddle of flowers on my mom and dad’s monument in Kentontown Cemetery. When I want to get them they were gone. I looked all around at all the beautiful ones, still on their stones not touched. Yet they chose to take mine.

    This cemetery in Robertson County is the most vandalized one that I know of.

    In 1996 we moved our stone to Battle Grove so it would be safe, after it was painted red.
