  • Budget cuts for county attorneys jeopardize safety

    Our state’s budget crisis may soon result in a crisis in personal and community safety for Kentucky’s law-abiding citizens.

    Kentucky’s county attorneys face cutting more than $1.1 million dollars from their budgets over the next six months. This is equivalent to 77 staff members losing their jobs effective January 1, and will have a devastating effect on our system of public safety and criminal justice.

  • Now, more than ever, citizens need to be involved

    The new year is a time for reflection. I think that it is important to thank people who have contributed to making Cynthiana and Harrison County a better place to live. These are people or groups of people who selflessly contribute their time, energy, and yes, sometimes even money for the betterment of the community. I won’t mention names so that I don’t slight anyone, but you know who you are.

    How good it was to see the picture of five U.S. presidents (former, present and to-be) meeting together and smiling! In some countries, when a new president is elected, he very soon imprisons or assassinates his predecessor for fear that person will find a way to capture that position again.

  • Community is lucky to have dedicated school board

    To the editor,

    In difficult economic times like these, a community’s elected officials face incredible challenges.

    Often, they are required to make choices and decisions that they never dreamed they might face when agreeing to offer themselves up for public service. It’s called being a leader, and our community is fortunate to have five such individuals on the Harrison County Board of Education.

  • Budget for 2009-2010 school year may be "bleak"

    The Harrison County School Board approved a draft budget for the 2009-2010 school year at Tuesday evening’s school board meeting.

    “This is the worst it’s been in the eight years I’ve been here,” said Director of Finance Julie Asher.

    Asher said she was meeting daily with Superintendent Andy Dotson and Assistant Superintendent DeeGee Fischer to come up with possible plans for cutting the school district’s budget to coincide with possible additional funding cuts from the state.
