  • Saying "well done" to a county treasure

    To the editor:
    Harrison County Cooperative Extension is losing one dedicated agent when Cheryl Case retires. I know this first hand because  I was serving as Homemaker president when she started her journey with Extension.  
    We were both pretty “green” when she arrived. However, it didn’t take long for Cheryl to hit the floor running  teaching, supporting, encouraging, and learning about the “homemakers” of Harrison County.  

  • Women should be allowed to play

    To the editor:
    I am confused about a Harrison County issue that involved the local churches ball teams. All of a sudden the women cannot play. Why? Why? Why?
    It was never an issued before. These women that feel athletic enjoy supporting their church in anyway they can and should have that privilege and honor.
    If the answers are due to injuries or sexual harassment, that should not be, cause it can heppen to males as well as females. I’m sure this is understood when they sign up to play.

  • Misleading readers and taxpayers

    To the editor:
    A recent article headlined that Tobacco buyout money is still leading Harrison County farm  subsidies is totally misleading to area farmers and taxpayers.
    The payments are for the repeal of the price support and quota program, not a subsidy.
    Subsidy is defined as aid directly granted by government to be deemed beneficial to the public.

  • School Board Recognition Month

    To the editor:
    The people of Cynthiana and Harrison County are fortunate to have chosen a group of their fellow citizens to take responsibility for the community’s most precious resource and a key to its future – children and their educational opportunities.
    Mary June Brunker, Kristy Carey, Gary Lizer, Ed Taylor, and Dr. Don Stephens have agreed to serve this community because they care about those kids and their futures. And they serve at minimal compensation for maximum responsibilities, often under clouds of misunderstanding.

  • America is headed down hill

    To the editor:
    I look at the path American is going down today, and while it doesn’t scare me because I know God is still in control, and always will be, it does disturb me to think about the future generations.

  • Mailbag

    Praises to BGE

    To the editor:
    I would like to express my appreciation for all workers with Bluegrass Energy who worked around the clock to restore electricity to Harrison County.  I especially would like to commend the dispatchers who took calls from customers, they were very nice and explained the situation as they knew it.  I know it was difficult for them, and that customers can be very demanding and rude, (not that I would ever be, LOL). Again, thanks.

  • How should Christians vote?

    To the editor:
    No Christian should have voted for Obama. All Christians should believe and follow the teaching of the Holy Bible as handed down to us via more than 5000 manuscripts and manuscript fragments and presented in English in the Authorized King James Version.

  • Humane Society needs donations

    To the editor:
    I am writing to request that your readers remember the Humane Society of Harrison County in their end of the year giving. It is particularly important as 2012 draws to a close because we have been informed that due to budget cuts we will not be receiving the generous American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals grant that we were given in 2011. With the help of that grant the Humane Society of Harrison County was able to pay for or sponsor almost 400 spaying and neuters in 2012.

  • Proud of coal contributions

    To the editor:

  • Public building should be smoke free
