    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.

    I am a little late in writing to tell you what a great community we live in and how thankful we are for you. The staff at the Senior Center and Adult Day has worked very hard to meet the needs of the people in our community and this could not be done without your support or generosity.
    Thank you for helping us meet the needs of the seniors and individuals with disabilities. A few items that we have done or working towards.

    Attention Harrison County farmers! Have I got something for you! The Harrison County Chapter of the Young Farmers of America will be restarting its meetings on Jan. 2, 2017 at 7 p.m. at the Farm Bureau meeting room on Hwy. 27 S. (notice the new venue).
    We meet every Monday night, January through March/early April. We only meet during the months when farmers are less busy.
    Come join us to discuss the ups and downs of farming, learn from each other and get important tips from area agricultural experts. Hope to see you there.

    I can sympathize with the Marshall family. We all need to try and have more compassion for each other.
    On Aug. 1, 2000, we lost our daughter, Jessica Marie, to a rare and aggressive bone cancer.
    About two weeks later, Becky Barnes from the Democrat, contacted me by phone wanting to do an article.
    The article wasn’t about Jessica’s life and how courageously she fought.
    It was about a Make A Wish gift, a car. Jessica did not receive the car from Make A Wish. Her dad bought the car for her.

    Mike Aldridge recently wrote an article titled Tragedy in our county. And, I realize he was referring to the death of young Brett Persinger. I agree losing him is a tragedy; he sounds like a wonderful young man who had a great future ahead of him, and he was important to so many.
    However, after reading this article, I realized something else that is a tragedy, the attitude of some people, namely Mr. Aldridge.

    Today, television is so much more than it used to be. From the big screens in our living rooms to the smartphones in our pockets, so much has changed. And yet, through the information and new media age, KET has remained consistent in its belief that learning begins early and never ends.
    Embracing changing technologies, KET has expanded its online video and content to better serve the commonwealth, with services from early childhood through adult learning.

  • Would like to see a little appreciation for veterans

    To the editor:
    I am a veteran of the U.S. Marines. I can’t understand why the restaurant owners within the city limits of Cynthiana do not show their appreciation to the veteran men and women of Harrison County on Veteran’s Day. Without our service there wouldn’t be a country! Let alone a restaurant.
    There are a lot of veterans here and I’m sure a lot of them could use a free meal, even if its just one day out of the year. So please don’t let your greed for a dollar keep you from showing your appreciation.

  • Endorsement letters

    To the editor:
    On Nov. 8, it will be my honor to vote again for Roger Slade for city commissioner. He has proven his dedication to our town by always being in attendance and providing assistance in all civic and community matters to ensure everything runs smoothly.
    As a commissioner, he listens to the concerns of all constituents and discusses with them any issues which might develop.
    As a young adult, he spent endless hours helping to restore the old city cemetery to honor many of our founding fathers.
