  • Belmont resident requests furniture for outdoor area

    To the editor:

    I am writing on behalf of the Belmont Senior Apartment residents on West Pleasant Street. While management has provided one picnic table and three benches, none are situated in a restful, shady position. Since there are about three large, shade trees in grassy area, we would appreciate a chair or bench in which to contemplate/meditate, maybe with a pet or reading matter.

    Whether you prefer donkeys or elephants, Sunday night’s passage of the health care reform bill was historic.

    On the news, at work and around the water cooler, health care seems to be quite a hot topic, and rightfully so.

    We all need it.

    Washington, D.C. politicians may sit in the capital building for years arguing, debating and pondering how to best bring health care to every citizen.

    But in Harrison County, one group is already working to make that dream a reality in Cynthiana.
