• Supreme Court ruling robbed Americans of right to vote

    To the editor:
    I am appalled by the supreme court who took away our right of American people to “vote” on abortion of our little babies and gay marriages. “God” is going to punish someone - and it may be all America.
    Pray for our country.

  • Vaping leads to nicotine addiction

    To the editor;
    In the April 9 edition of the Cynthiana Democrat, guest columnist Lisa Preston expressed her disappointment in how local leaders handle, or don’t, tobacco use by community youth.  I found much of what she said right on target.
    We, as a community, do not take the use of tobacco by our children seriously enough. Some adults even enable this addiction by providing children with this dangerous drug.
    Yes, addiction, yes, drug.

  • Family enjoys local Cynthiana-Harrison County museum

    To the editor:

    On April 18, 2015, my three grandsons and I had the opportunity to visit the Cynthiana-Harrison County Museum. The boys enjoyed hearing and learning about the history of many items displayed. Our visit was topped off with Kenny Simpson’s tour and history presentation of the old Harrison County Jail.
    The museum is truly a real treasure in the community. We look forward to visiting again in the future.

  • Mother laments son’s loss

    To the editor:

    After reading that Harrison Memorial Hospital was ranked fifth as one of best places to work in Kentucky.
    I had to respond.
    I just wish my late son, Jackie, had been working at a place like this.
    He came back home to Kentucky to work at a hospital, and buy his first home.
    He was hired in 2008, and fired in November of 2012.
    What a shame! This hospital could not have been like HMH.
    He took his life in December of 2012. Enough said.
