    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.

    Twenty-five years ago this Sept. 15, 1991, the C&W Horse Show Arena had its opening show, sponsored by the Cynthiana Jacees.

    This county event was overwhelmingly attended with over 100 horses entered in the 20 some odd classes scheduled for the show and all riders and spectators enjoying the show.

    Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!

    Way to go harrison county!

    We cannot thank the residents of Harrison County enough for the outpouring of support that we have received for the displaced animals of Louisiana after the recent devastating floods. What a caring and compassionate community we live in - Americans helping Americans and Farmers helping Farmers.

    A ‘Solar Farm’. Really a ‘farm’? Are you kidding me? Webster’s defines a farm as “1 a: a piece of land used for growing crops or raising livestock b: a body of water used for the cultivation of aquatic animals.
