    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.

    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.

    On behalf of the Cynthiana Alumni Association I’d like to thank Virgie Wells for her review of our alumni celebration in last week’s Democrat.
    We are happy and proud for the number of former students and alumni who meet every year to renew old friendships and catch up on each other’s news.

    It has been 21 days plus since the Berry Festival on June 3, yet the Port a Potty still remains in place in the center of the only playground the children have in which to play. It has not been removed nor has the waste from the festival been cleaned out. You can imagine what it is like in this heat. The children say it stinks terribly, has flies and is also loaded with maggots. I went to look. They are right.

    First off, kudos to Lee Kendall for his excellent editorial last week. Hope he did not get too many hate calls and letters.
    I read that California has placed Kentucky on a no travel list because of some of our legislation. We must have scared the poor snowflakes. Most insecure groups strike out at anyone that does not agree with their group think and react with negative actions. They fear that anyone that thinks differently challenges the validity of their beliefs.
    Unfortunately, we have a similar situation right here in the Maiden City.

  • Supports Amish community

    To the editor:
    After reading the article titled “Amish buggies cause traffic concerns for fiscal court,” I felt the need to respond by pointing out the importance and pride I felt as county Judge-executive Alex Barnett stood up for a counter-cultural existence in our community. Citing the lack of jurisdiction over religious matters, he made a very important covert point that I felt should be illuminated.

  • Check unclaimed property from state treasurer

    To the editor:
    The Kentucky State Treasurer’s (KST) office administers Kentucky’s Unclaimed Property fund.  Over the years the fund has grown to an amazing total of just over $500 million.  Yes, that is a 5 with 8 zeros!
     

  • Much has been done locally, more to do

    To the editor:
    Take a look around and notice several things that have recently changed.
    Look at the airport. New run-way, hangers and the offering of free rides for seniors and children. We sure do appreciate what they are doing. By taking a ride you see the wonders of town. We are thankful for the safety and try to understand how air currents can cause a bounce just like driving a car down our roads.
    Road maintenance is made, but smoother roads are needed which can be made; that is beyond my expertise.
