    To the editor:
    In the 1960’s we had a “War on Poverty.” We lost.
    In the 1980’s we declared a “War on Drugs.” Years later we have semi-trucks of killer drugs coming from Mexico.
    After so many school shootings, no one can keep count.
    Many people think outlawing all guns or certain types of guns will solve the problem. Please refer to paragraph 1 and 2. Are you getting the picture?
    At this time there are approximately five million AR type rifles on the street.

    To the editor:
    The NRA is a terrorist organization. That is a fact. Our members of congress, our state legislators, our governors, especially those on the Republican side of the aisle, are terrified of the NRA.
    They are terrified of not receiving millions of NRA dollars into their re-election war chests.
    Bills introduced into the legislature should not be written by, and for the benefit of special interest groups and then sponsored by their pre-purchased lap dogs in Washington and Frankfort.

    To the editor:
    This is a follow up on Linda Dryden’s letter in regards to the Battle Grove Cemetery. Everyone that has a loved one buried, or a future plot, should be concerned.
    I have some questions I need answers to and so do you all. (1) Does the hospital have to have two entrances from a state road to qualify for a Trauma Center status? If they do then the 90 day road they are planning is false going thru the cemetery. The cemetery road is not a public access road. The gates are closed so we can’t use them.

    Today’s editorial (Jan. 25) by Lee Kendall was the best on legalization of cannabis I have ever read! He was well-informed, truthful and honest.
    No doubt, he will be criticized by ill-informed, untruthful and dishonest people.
    I was a social worker for one year, a probation officer for four years and a cop for 21 years. I know what works and what does not.
    I remember when the “War on Drugs” started in the late 1960s. Not only did we lose that war, it is now the leading cause of death in the US. Why?

    To the editor:
    I recently attended the Retirement celebration of Assistant Chief Darrin Hawkins, a fire fighter for 27 years. My vote as a City official helped to hire this good man who proved himself as an examplary employee time and time again. I am so proud of him. He retires now deeply caring about his co-workers, the city and its people.
    He has already lined up some volunteer jobs such as helping with the Boy Scouts and the Cynthiana Fire Department.

    A building. Like any other building here in Cynthiana. A building that holds people like your school or church. But this building is special. A building that gets ugly stares. Rolled eyes. Harsh comments. A building people are scared of, and drive by quickly. The building I am speaking of is Shady Lawn.

    To the editor:
    The Cynthiana Fire Department wishes to express its great appreciation and gratitude to everyone who supported the department during last week’s fire.  This community took its time to provide not only food, water and general assistance, but also displayed support with prayers, both privately and through social media.
    This overwhelming support allowed the department to concentrate on the task at hand, which is and always will be the safety of this community.

    Conservatives from all over Harrison County who voted for President Trump, continue to support his initiatives and agenda.

    To the editor:
    Battle Grove Cemetery has served our community as a sacred burial ground for our loved ones for many years.
    My husband died on Nov. 18, 2017 and when I went to pay my opening and closing fees, I notices a gravel road behind the hospital that I has never seen before.
    While at the cemetery’s main office, I asked about that road and was told, “the rock road was laid from the cemetery to Harrison Memorial Hospital because emergency vehicles will be using this road to reach the hospital.”

    To the editor:
    I have a few questions for the weather people.
    First of all, isn’t there always a 50 percent chance of rain. It will either rain or it won’t.
    Does it ever get hot enough in the summer to fry anything other than an egg?
    I would also like to know how hail was measured before golf balls were invented and what tornadoes sounded like before there were trains.
    In the wintertime, doesn’t the rest of the witch get cold too?
    Most of all, why does everyone worry so much how cold it is at the windshield factory?
