  • Kuster is ‘best possible choice for District Court Judge’

    To the editor:

    I am happy to endorse Bill Kuster, candidate for District Court Judge. Bill has been a practicing attorney for 26 years in Harrison County and surrounding counties. As an active member of this community, he has held the positions of Assistant Commonwealth Attorney under Jack Keith, Assistant County Attorney under Bill Probus, and has served three terms as the Harrison County Attorney. His vast knowledge, integrity, and experience dealing with thousands of cases certainly qualifies Bill Kuster to be the best possible choice for District Court Judge.

  • County attorney is wasting time filing political complaints

    To the editor:

    Your “Sign Dispute” story on the front page of your newspaper left me wondering if Bill Kuster doesn’t have a lot better things to do with his time as our County Attorney other than filing a complaint against his political opponent for having a campaign sign larger than his. Shouldn’t he be prosecuting criminals and getting the drug dealers off of our streets downtown?

  • County leaders are wasting our time and money

    To the editor:

    I cannot believe that our county leaders are wasting our time and money debating something as meaningless as how big a campaign sign can be. Who cares? We have huge problems in our town that get worse every year. Do something useful about the drug problem, the lack of jobs, and our crumbling downtown where our children have nothing to do. Stop wasting our money on some politician crying about his sign being smaller than his opponent’s sign, or he won’t be the only one looking for a new job after the elections this fall.

  • The best father you’ll ever have

    A dear friend recently lost his father and another friend commented that the “father thing” is huge, no matter the relationship.

    Those with good fathers mourn the goodness of the relationship and the sweet memories of good days gone by.

    Those with fathers who caused pain and turmoil in the family by their presence (or by their absence or indifference) mourn the relationship that never was but might have been.

    The father thing, indeed, is huge.

  • Sign complaints are ‘childish’

    To the editor:

    I am so glad to know that things in our county are running so smoothly that our county attorney can take the time to be concerned with the size of an opponent’s sign! I’m even happier to know that my tax dollars are hard at work supporting such childish issues.

  • Tuesday was Equal Pay Day

    To the editor:

    On Tuesday, April 20, 2010, thousands of women from across that United States will join in a national day of action against unfair pay called Equal Pay Day. April is symbolic of the point into the new year that a woman must work in order to earn the wages paid to a man in the previous year. On a national level, women are paid only 78 cents for every dollar a man is paid, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. So, because women earn less, we must work longer for the same pay.
