  • United Community Fund support appreciated

    To the editor:
    I am writing in support of the United Community Fund. This fund is used for various local agencies in Harrison County only. I am an ombudsman for our Cynthiana Nursing Home residents. Our agency is funded in part by the United Community Fund insuring nursing home residents have someone looking in on them and speaking up on their behalf.
    We very much appreciate this as I’m sure every organization receiving this help appreciates it. The United Community Fund needs and deserves all our support.

    Betty Patrick
    Cynthiana, Ky.

  • Kill what you need, not all you see

    To the editor:
    Kentucky just had the early blackpower deer season and I have heard something disturbing.

  • Thanks for your support

    To the editor:
    It begins in July; spending ten hour days learning drill, practicing music, setting formations, feeling the sweltering heat rising from the asphalt in the high school parking lot. Watching as practices begin and end for others while these kids are still pushing through, from early morning until after dusk.  It will soon be drawing to a close in the blistering wind and freezing rain. It takes time, dedication, and commitment. I am talking about Marching Band and Harrison County High School has a rich tradition in this arena.  

  • Keep Berry post office open

    To the editor:
    This letter concerns only those persons in the 41003 Zip Code area.
    You received a letter just this past week from a Bob Redden at 1591 Dalton Ave., Cincinnati, Ohio 45234-8992. This letter is from the United States Postal Service. It is a very important survey concerning the service options the Postal Service is offering to the patrons in the 41003 area served by the Berry, Ky. Post Office.

  • Bill Adkins for Congress

    To the editor:

  • Encouraging a straight Democratic ticket

    To the editor:
    As I was writing my original letter of endorsement for our fine Democratic candidates, I realized that I could sum it up much better and still make my point with the following words.
    I trust President Obama to keep us safe in the world.
    I trust President Obama to get our economy back on track.
    I trust President Obama to always keep our country moving forward.
    I trust Ben Chandler to continue to be the hard-working and dedicated Congressman for the Sixth District that he has always been.

  • Send McKee back to the capitol

    To the editor:
    During these crucial financial times in Kentucky it is very important for the citizens of the 78th. Legislative District to send Rep. Tom McKee back to Frankfort.
    Rep. McKee is the Chairman of the House Agriculture and Small Business Committee and he is constantly looking for ways to help Kentucky farmers, small business owners and all citizens.

  • Arnett-Switzer named Kentucky Colonel at capitol building

    By Susan Arnett-Switzer, Guest writer
    Secretary of State, Alison Lundergan Grimes, recently encountered my brother Capt. Samuel Arnett in Kuwait while evaluating the voting systems of deployed soldiers.

  • Prevention should be exercised more

    To the editor:
    In light of recent events I have been left with a resonating sadness for the loss of such a young life. A teenage girl who must have felt so lost that her only option was to take her own life, how does this happen? I am forced to ask myself as a concerned parent “How is it that we are failing our youth?”
    The issue of bullying is spiraling wildly out of control and lives are being lost. Not just any lives, but the lives of our youth who have barely experienced what the word “life” means.

  • Re-elect Roger Slade on Nov. 6

    To the editor:
    Election Day is approaching quickly.  If you are like me, you are tired of the commercials and the mud-slinging and the politics.  While the results of our national elections are important to us all, local races probably have more impact on our day to day lives.  So even if you’re not very excited to vote for our national candidates (which I encourage you to do wisely), take  seriously the impact that your vote can have here locally.  Vote in our local races!
