    To the editor:
    In my opinion, all actions of the Harrison County Fiscal Court, pertaining to the ‘solar power conglomerate’ has been intentionally and  hopelessly entangled through promises of money and should be declared null and void and the current ‘solar power conglomerate,’ summarily dismissed.
    Conglomerates are complex, virtually impossible to define organizations, full of educated experts, with the main purpose of using their expertise to make money for themselves.

         It’s no secret that during the time that Bill Clinton was making a speech for a Russian business for a fee of $500,000, that his wife, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was working a deal to give Russia 20% of American uranium.
         Now what do you call that?  Coincidence?
         Recently the Cynthiana City Commissioners voted to allow Sunday alcohol-by-the-drink sales.

    On behalf of Leesburg Christian Church and Cumberland Mountain Outreach, we just want to say that you guys are awesome. We have always known this and it was confirmed again [recently] that bikers have big hearts. Words cannot express how grateful we are for all the toys given, your planning, time invested and sacrifices made to make this an amazing and successful toy drive.
    We enjoyed spending the afternoon with each of you.

  • State park to close its golf course

    To the editor:
    Nestled on the crossroads of northern and central Kentucky within Pendleton County, there resides a state park with humble beginnings and generations of stories to tell. Kincaid Lake State Park was the vision of group of local residents of the 1950’s.

  • Would like to read comments from different perspective

    To the editor:
    Before there was the anthem; before there was the flag itself, there was the Declaration of Independence. Many people know the following passage: “We hold these truths to be self evident; that all men are created equal.” Fewer people know the passage that states “In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms; our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.”

  • Countering recent primary election voting letter

    To the editor:
    I am writing in response to “Primary elections should be open to all voters.”
    The author of that  letter stated  that “Primaries are not for the parties, they are for the voters  and all voters pay for them  and should have the right to participate in them.”
    I must disagree.

    Sir, you stated you recalled your students declining to stand for the anthem and pledge years ago. When you asked them why “none gave a solid reason why...”
    Recently I saw a TV program on this subject with several black guests an a white moderator. The guests spoke at length about abuse, racism, and things that need to change. When the moderator asked for details all the guests could say was “if you do not know, we can not explain it.”

    Are you an Independent voter?
    Are you tired of being refused the opportunity to vote in Kentucky primary elections?
    Openprimaries.org is a national organization working to make open primaries available in all 50 states and you should take up the challenge to make them a reality here.
    Kentucky is one of only 17 states which do not permit open primaries and recent national polls have found that as much as 43 percent of the electorate considers itself as Independent.  More and more young voters are listing themselves as Independent.

  • Looks forward to Thursdays

    To the editor:
    As I throw back the covers - plant my feet on the floor - it’s Thursday.
    Cynthiana Democrat day.
    What will be on the front page this week. You’ll just have to keep busy and wait till the mailman comes. Oh boy there he is out the door to the mailbox back inside I sit at the table.
    Front page help for the Harvey victims, a group is going to take them supplies. There look, a Cynthiana native lives in Houston. Small world.
