  • Many thanks to the Harrison County Vocational Schools’ carpentry class

    To the editor:
    On behalf of Rotary and our community I would like to publicly express appreciation to Gary Lail and his carpentry class students at the Harrison County Vocational School. In a community service project Rotary has been supplying materials and Gary and his students have been building and installing ramps for folks who cannot navigate steps. The students build the ramps at school and then they are delivered to the installation site.

  • Argo and the class of 2013

    To the editor:
    Did you catch it? It was a trailing sentence at the end of  Chris Terrio’s acceptance speech for the “Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay)’ Oscar  for the film Argo.
    Mr. Terrio finishes with this…“And so I want to dedicate this to…the people all over the world in the U.S. and Canada and Iran who use creativity and intelligence to solve problems nonviolently.”

  • Senior Citizen needs your help

    To the editor:
    The Harrison County Senior Citizens’ Center has taken yet another hit. As of April 1, staff hours have been cut to the barest minimum and the length of workdays has been shortened. The Center is striving desperately to stay open and to provide services to our community. These steps have been taken in order to remain a valuable senior resource in Cynthiana and surrounding areas. Unfortunately, without additional funding, cutting services will be next.

  • Revisions need to be made on medication laws

    To the editor:

  • Natural law

    To the editor:
    Under the guidance of our Creator, this universe was created and is guided by laws - natural laws.
    Consider the following: the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Apples fall from trees. Seeds are planted in the soil to grow and produce fruit. Fish swim in water. Birds fly in the sky. Man and animals were made, male and female, to multiply and increase to enjoy this world.

  • Invaluable asset to Harrison County

    To the editor:
    Two weeks ago Cynthiana and Harrison County lost an invaluable asset with the death of Harold Slade. Harold was an original founder of the Cynthiana-Harrison County Museum and a tireless worker for historical preservation. We, the Board of Directors of the Cynthiana-Harrison County Trust, Inc., will especially miss Harold. He was our “hanger-upper” and faithful mainstay.

  • Equal Pay Day

    To the editor:
    On Tuesday, April 9, thousands of women from across the United States will join in a national day of action against unfair pay called Equal Pay Day. April is symbolic of the point into the new year that a woman must work in order to earn the wages paid to a man in the previous year. On a national level, women are paid only 78 cents for every dollar a man is paid, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. So, because women earn less, we must work longer for the same pay.

  • Love your children

    To the editor:
    Recently, I lost my youngest daughter, Tiffany Dawn Bradford Couch, to an apparent heart attack. She was the sweetest, happiest, most caring and most loving person I’ve ever known. She was a devoted wife and the most loving mother that anyone could imagine. She is missed so much by me, Randy, Zane, Zaryn and all of her family and many, many friends.

  • The public value of public defense

    Submitted by Eric Van Santen, Assistant Public Advocate, Cynthiana Trial Office
    This is a special time to honor the foundational right to counsel.
    In a criminal case, counsel protects “the fundamental human rights of life and liberty.” Our Sixth Amendment right to counsel “stands as a constant admonition that if the constitutional safeguards it provides be lost, justice will not ‘still be done.’”
