  • Tea Party appreciates debate support

    To the editor:
    The Harrison County Tea Party thanks the more than 60 people that attended the debates held at the Extension Office on Sept. 30. This is a prime example of how a non-partisan organization that focuses on today’s issues can help provide information to the community for the upcoming Nov. 6 election. Special appreciation is extended to: candidates Tom McKee, Bryan Lutz, Bill Adkins, and Andy Barr; Moderator Amber Philpott; WCYN, Chris Winkle and Doug Miller; Ben Hyatt, Cynthiana Democrat; and the Harrison County Extension office.

  • Why is banking becoming a problem for me?

    To the editor:

  • Vote "no" on Chandler

    To the editor:
    Ben Chandler has spent more time learning about global warming in luxurious and exotic locales than he has ever spent or will spend anywhere near a coal mine. And he didn’t have to pay for one cent of it. Most was provided by taxpayers, the rest by environmental groups anxious to shutter our coal-fired power.

  • Praise to the HCHS football team

    To the editor:
    Does the final score on the scoreboard determine the winner? Regardless of the final score Friday night the Harrison County Thorobreds walked away winners. In a game that was David vs. Goliath the Thorobreds played with heart and made their fans proud! What a fine group of young men who have faced many trials this season and still gave it their all. What a wonderful reflection on Coach Carr and the coaching staff. When all is said and done, no matter how the season ends, these boys are winners in the game of life.

  • Farmer's Market is a must

    To the editor:

    A couple of Saturdays ago, as I was driving between Frankfort and Lexington, I received a phone call telling me that my name had been drawn to win a gift basket from the farmers’ market in Cynthiana.
    I was surprised, since I never win anything, and since I didn’t remember entering. I then recalled that I had quickly scrawled my name and phone number on a ticket a week before when I stopped to get some corn.

  • Downtown was more than alive

    To the editor:
    To the planners, coordinators, workers, promoters, participants and spectators, a big congrats.
    YA DUN GOOD!!
    Probably the biggest crowd in Cynthiana I can remember in a long, long time. Yeah, there were a few glitches along the way but it was Cynthiana’s first Rod Run and there’s always ways to improve the future.
    To the folks who thought it was too congested, noisy and not worth it-sorry! Cynthiana was alive and bustling again that day, something that needs to happen a whole lot more frequently.

  • Progress should not interfere with daily travel

    To the editor:
    Today I had occasion to turn into the alley between the Catholic church/school and the firehouse/gym. At the stop sign the way was blocked by a truck and trailer unloading wood. As I, correctly I believe, pointed out to the crew, its illegal to block a through-way for emergency reasons.
    I wanted to apologize for over estimating the source, as I am aware that its takes a modicum of brain cells to either put a cone at the entrance or move truck/trailer four feet ahead.
