  • Give credit where credit is due

    To the editor:
    Over the past few weeks many articles and editorials have been written about the recreation department. I’m disappointed in the Democrat’s coverage of recent events and the personal attacks on outgoing director Rick Chasteen.
    I am not related to Mr. Chasteen and have nothing to gain by expressing my opinion. In two editorials Ben Hyatt has singled out Mr. Chasteen and made it sound as if he didn’t do his job. I disagree.

  • Support our mayor and his efforts

    To the editor:
    I strongly support Mayor Moses in his efforts to repair Water Works Abdallah Road. It has been unusable for quite some time but before its closure many motorists made good use of it.

  • Thank you from Cedar Ridge Health Campus

    To the editor:
    Cedar Ridge Health Campus  would like to say thank you to each person, business, and volunteer that made our fundraiser a huge success. Thank you for your patience and support in helping us exceed our goal by raising over $1,900.
    All proceeds go directly to this organization to benefit the Harrison County Refuge For Women.

  • Waterworks/Abdallah Road

    To the editor:
    I support Mayor Moses in his effort to repair the Waterworks/Abdallah Road. The road needs to be repaired and opened up.
    Highway 27 is so awful trying to get thru traffic. It takes a while. Also River Road is taken up by the traffic also.
    As for the by-pass I won’t be traveling on it. To me this is useless. At least Waterworks/Abdallah won’t be bumper to bumper with traffic.
    I support the Mayor all the way to repair the road soon as possible.

  • Supporet KET

    To the editor:
    I have been a volunteer at KET, Kentucky’s statewide public television system, since 2009. I have volunteered my time because I believe in KET and for years my family and I have enjoyed the diverse, wonderful programming and services KET provides. I want to take part in passing those things on to others in my community.

  • Waterworks/Abdallah Road

    To the editor:
    I wholeheartedly support Mayor Moses in his effort to implement the repair of Waterworks/Abdallah Road. This road has been closed since last summer.
    Local motorists used this road as a safe and handy way to access Walmart and the post office, thus avoiding heavily traveled U.S. 27.
    As for the by-pass, I don’t know of many local people that will travel it regularly.
    I urge motorists to let Mayor Moses know that they support him in seeing repair of the roadway as soon as possible.

  • A tribute to John Swinford

    To the editor:
    Cynthiana and Harrison County lost its biggest booster and promoter with the death of John Swinford on Feb. 3. Before John’s health failed his knowledge of most of the citizenry of Cynthiana and Harrison County was second to none. John was extremely proud of Harrison County and all of its good citizens. He was also proud to be a lawyer and was an extremely honorable member of that profession. I am not nearly a good enough wordsmith to write this accolade, but I must try.

  • Issues in our state government

    To the editor:

  • Today I saw a hero

    To the editor:
    As any family member will tell you, all the young men and women who left the Cynthiana Armory Monday, Feb. 11 are ttrue herd’s. Make no mistake, they are truly the next greatest generation.
