  • 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.’”

  • 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.

  • St. Edward School

  • 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.
