    I doubt many in Harrison County have ever heard of the name Phthias Russ.
    Phthias was a negro league baseball player from 1921 to 1925. Born in Cynthiana on April 7, 1904, Died Aug. 9, 1930.
    He won a batting title in 1928 for the Chicago American Giants. His career was cut short because of illness. He played baseball, basketball, track and football for Sam Houston College in Texas and attended Mehary Medical School in Nashville, Tennessee.
    He was an All American football player in 1924 for Sam Houston College.

    There are not enough words that can express mine and my workers gratitude for this community in the support by words, actions and giving to our local food pantry.
    We could not have such a wonderful mission in our community, if it was not for you in this community.
    I have said many times that his food pantry is not mine or yours but it belongs to God. It amazes me how he touches people’s hearts and their pocket books in keeping the doors of this food pantry open. We that work there are just stewards of it.

    Gov. Bevin’s appointment of an “Adoption Czar” is a serious mistake. Daniel S. Dumas has no legal background, has never worked for the Cabinet, and has never had an adoption case on his desk.
    Such a position is not needed, as the Kentucky statutes and the Cabinet make adoptions work already.
    Everyone should understand that adoption is a painful, slow process which finally ends in security, legal founding, and especially warmth.

    Did Russia’s meddling influence the results of the ‘16 election?
    I’m registered as an independent voter and have been for 25 years. I care not for the Democrats or Republicans. I didn’t think I could support Trump or Clinton in the race for president.
    However, if I had known of Russia’s support of Trump and their campaign against Hillary I would have had to hold my nose and voted for Hillary.

    On Saturday morning, April 1, I want to Walmart to get groceries and a 24 pack of water. As I went out the door of the store I prayed that the Lord would help me get the things into my car.
    After opening the trunk I turned around to start putting them in and a gracious lady pulled her cart beside mine and asked if I needed help and that is when she became “A Servant of God.” She had no idea I had asked God for help. God truly does answer prayer.

    We thought the Recreation Department was supposed to offer equal opportunity sports for kids. For the age group we paid $50 just like the others. Yes, we are aware the ‘coaches’ are volunteers, yet one team in particular knows nothing about equal opportunity.

    To the editor:
    There has been a lot of talk about the expansion of Central Landfill in Scott County.  Some of the information being given out is incorrect.
    The incorrect information includes:
    1. That no out-of-state waste is being accepted currently or that it will be accepted in the future,
    2. That there will be no rail haul, and
    3. That the landfill will close if the expansion is denied.

    I am not a farmer. I want to remind everyone, including me, to plant seeds to take care of the bees. Most everyone knows that we need to have bees. We also enjoy eating honey. We need to spread a lot of honey around. Perhaps a kinder, gentler community could be cultivated.
    It would be nice to send our president a jar of honey or two. It just might sweeten him up a bit. He needs to know honey attracts. Its a good thing.

    A great lady, Dorothy Mooney, passed away last week.  
    She was loved by us all. I can’t imagine what it will be like not seeing her walk all over town. She was a customer of mine, but more like a mother to me, and was a volunteer for everything good. She was everywhere, doing everything, age or illness never slowed her down. We will miss you, Miss Mooney. My condolences to your family.....

    It has been a while since I have written to you about the Food Pantry. I want to take this opportunity to thank the community for the love, concern and contributions that have been brought in or sent in this past year.
    This community, from the very outer edge of Harrison County to the vary center of Cynthiana has been involved, from volunteering help, to food contributions to monetary help.
