    To the editor:
    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.

    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.

    I am, Alice Allen, a recently retired school teacher from Harrison County High School. As a citizen and former lobbyist with Blue Grass Area Development District during the Washington D.C. trip in 1998 for flood control after the “Flood of 97.”
    I endorse Jada Walker Griggs as City Commissioner of Cynthiana. Jada is an excellent mother, hard worker, and a child of God. Jada Griggs is a young leader ready to use her voice, energy, time and educational awareness for the improvement of our community and our citizens!

    In November, the citizens of Cynthiana will cast ballots in the 2016 City Commission race. This race is very different from the presidential race in that the candidates for commission are not people we have only seen on TV, but are neighbors who we see having lunch at Biancke’s, who cheer for the Breds, and who share our pews at church on Sunday. This community is fortunate enough to be in a position to vote for many qualified candidates and Roger Slade is a candidate who has earned your vote.

    I am endorsing Mark Hart for the 78th District Representative Race. Mark has a strong background in public service and an advocate for first responders due to his current position as a lieutenant in the Lexington Fire Department. Mark understands the needs for small communities with his experience in local government as a magistrate, city council member, and mayor of Falmouth.

    In regards to Becky Barnes’ editorial in last week’s Cynthiana Democrat on elections:

    Apparently, thanks to television history programs, elections were really slimy in years past. Verbal prevarications, much worse than now, led to deals, Bowie knife fights and mayhem with walking canes on the floor of Congress.

    This summer, we were in Cynthiana (where I grew up) and had lunch downtown on Walnut Street. Coming out of the restaurant, we nearly fell to our knees (literally) due to the condition of the sidewalk. They are mostly rubble. Deplorable, embarrassing and unbelievable. Why     is this? Does nobody care anymore?

    I love both, but I had to give up on sweets. My hope is I won’t have to give up on my football  players. That is about all I have to watch on television, as the news is hard to listen to. Some of my players are as bad as the news.
