    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.

    I doubt many in Harrison County have ever heard of the name Phthias Russ.
    Phthias was a negro league baseball player from 1921 to 1925. Born in Cynthiana on April 7, 1904, Died Aug. 9, 1930.
    He won a batting title in 1928 for the Chicago American Giants. His career was cut short because of illness. He played baseball, basketball, track and football for Sam Houston College in Texas and attended Mehary Medical School in Nashville, Tennessee.
    He was an All American football player in 1924 for Sam Houston College.

    There are not enough words that can express mine and my workers gratitude for this community in the support by words, actions and giving to our local food pantry.
    We could not have such a wonderful mission in our community, if it was not for you in this community.
    I have said many times that his food pantry is not mine or yours but it belongs to God. It amazes me how he touches people’s hearts and their pocket books in keeping the doors of this food pantry open. We that work there are just stewards of it.

    Gov. Bevin’s appointment of an “Adoption Czar” is a serious mistake. Daniel S. Dumas has no legal background, has never worked for the Cabinet, and has never had an adoption case on his desk.
    Such a position is not needed, as the Kentucky statutes and the Cabinet make adoptions work already.
    Everyone should understand that adoption is a painful, slow process which finally ends in security, legal founding, and especially warmth.

    Did Russia’s meddling influence the results of the ‘16 election?
    I’m registered as an independent voter and have been for 25 years. I care not for the Democrats or Republicans. I didn’t think I could support Trump or Clinton in the race for president.
    However, if I had known of Russia’s support of Trump and their campaign against Hillary I would have had to hold my nose and voted for Hillary.
