    To the editor:
    I live in the 6th District and I will be voting for Roger Brill in the primary because Andy Barr has proved to be an establishment Republican. Mr. Barr assured us that he would oppose the liberal agenda. His promises collapsed when he voted with Henry Reid and Nancy Pelosi for the Omnibus spending bill which fully funded Planned Parenthood, sanctuary cities, and Executive amnesty for two more years. He cannot defend why he voted for the things he says he stands against. I feel sold out.

    There are seven precincts in Harrison County represented by Congressman Andy Barr of the Sixth Congressional District.  Registered Republicans in Eastside, Southside, Buena Vista, Clifton Village, Extension Office, City Fire Department and Library have an opportunity to vote for a Harrison County citizen, Roger Brill in the upcoming Republican Primary Election, May 17, 2016.

    To the editor:
    My purpose is to encourage registered Republicans to vote for Roger Brill as the 6th Kentucky Congressional District candidate in the May 17 primary election.
    Roger is my friend and a long-time Harrison County resident.  He is a Civil Engineer graduate and a welder.  He owns and operates the Steel Trailer Company in Cynthiana, a steel fabricating corporation.  He is not a professional politician.

    It is with deep sorrow that I withdraw my candidacy for state representative. My wonderful wife Betty passed away on April 13. My heart is broken. I need time to grieve and heal, so I am withdrawing my candidacy.
    I want to thank all the people who offered prayers and help. I will be forever grateful for all your kind words and actions.
    Sincerely,
    Sam Pierce
    Cynthiana, Ky.

    To the editor:
    As a healthcare worker I have closely followed the needle exchange debate in my hometown of Cynthiana. After reading the comments of John Chamberlain in last week’s edition I feel compelled to respond to his comments.
    It is inconsistent for Chamberlin to say he stands “against anything that furthers a vice” unless he also stands against making cars that can exceed the speed limit to prevent the vice of speeding.

    To the editor:
    I was disappointed in the decision of the magistrates of Harrison County to approve the needle-exchange program. I was pleased to see that two of the eight represented me and many others who oppose this measure. I was surprised that it passed at all. Bourbon County considered it, and they nixed it.

    To the editor:
    For those who haven’t heard, Washington State recently passed two laws. They legalized gay marriages and legalized marijuana. The fact that gay marriage and marijuana were legalized on the same day makes perfect sense.
    Read Leviticus 20:13: “If a man lies with another man they should be stoned.” Apparently we just hadn’t interpreted it correctly before.
    Live by the spirit and do not seek to gratify the desires of the flesh and live by the laws of nature, which will encourage true life.

    April 10-16 is National Volunteer Week and every single volunteer deserves our appreciation and grateful acknowledgement.  Across the United States, an army of trained volunteers – more than 430,000 – gave more than 19 million hours of service last year to care for hospice patients.

    To the editor:
    The legislature is considering House Bill 2, a constitutional amendment to allow local governments to add a one percent local sales tax. You would pay a seven percent tax instead of the current six percent. It will negatively impact Kentucky businesses, consumers and the economy of Kentucky.
