  • Berry Mayor responds to “concerned citizen”

    To the editor:
    This letter is in response to a “Concerned Citizen” letter to the editor which appeared in the June 29 edition of the Cynthiana Democrat. Let me begin by thanking all who worked so hard to make the festival happen, along with all the people who graciously donated prizes and services for the event.  
    I sincerely hope that her comments do not deter volunteers and committee members from wanting to help with the festival and do what is best for the majority of Berry citizens.

  • To Bail or not to Bale

    To the editor:
    I smiled when I read Lee Kendall’s remarks in the Viewpoint article of the July 20th edition of the Democrat about the misuse of certain words that sound alike but have different meanings. This has been one of my pet peeves over the last few years. It just sends my head spinning when I hear or read the English Language being butchered at the extent it is today. No one seems to really care if they sound intelligent or completely uneducated. I wanted to congratulate Lee for expressing his (and my) opinions of the use of proper English.

  • Newcomer loved the Fair

    To the editor:
    The Fair was awesome. I moved down here from Northern Kentucky about three years ago. I went to all the local festivals up there and as far as I’m concerned ya’ll take a backseat to no one. Well done.
    P.S. Maybe a demolition derby next year, people love crashes!

    The annual Cynthiana/Harrison County NAACP Scholarship Gala is just around the corner and I would like to say “thank you” to all who have supported this known organization to continue to be recognized in our community as we move forward. this will be our 13th year to celebrate this event and be of any support to our community to grow and move beyond any obstacles that may be a hindrance to our progress as we stand firm to our commitment.

    To the editor:
    Growing up, my brother, sisters and I never realized that we were poor. We just knew that we did not have everything that the other kids had, but we had all that we needed. Clothes, food on the table, a warm bed at night and two parents that sacrificed and loved us dearly.

    To the editor:
    On Monday, July 17, 2017 in Cynthiana, Kentucky the Bill of Rights, the United States Constitution the socio-economic status of the nation and democracy itself was spared by the passing of an ordinance to allow Sunday alcohol sales in Cynthiana. Or at least that is what some would have you believe in the speeches made in support of the sales.
    It is not hard to see how the lost in Cynthiana have no problem with this. I couldn’t  figure out why I have a problem with it myself until thinking about it in depth. It finally dawned on me.

    To the editor:
    At the time I purchased the property, which is now Ashford Acres Inn, I could have easily chosen a property in Los Angeles, where I spend a large portion of my time, or a property in Lexington, a city that gets many more tourists than Cynthiana or surrounding counties. This choice likely would have been wiser when considering future profitability.

    To the editor:
    I stand opposed to the sale of alcohol on Sunday. In brighter and better days of our nation’s past, the Bible-believing New England Puritans set Sunday apart from the week as a day of worship and rest. That practice endured for over 300 years.

    This is in answer to the letter from Jayne Whitson Newman. By the way I don’t live in Berry, but outside the city.
    You have to be one very miserable person. For all you can see is what you call bad - wrong misuse of funds etc. By the way do you know what playground equipment costs? Well I checked it out on the internet. Boy was I ever in for a shock. That stuff is very expensive.
