  • 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!

  • Vote Republican, register Republican

    To the editor:
    On Nov. 6 we can send a message by voting for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, Andy Barr and Thomas Massie, and Bryan Lutz. These gentlemen will bring conservative, common sense solutions to Washington and Frankfort.

  • Debate was a success

    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.

  • If you want the best... vote Adkins

    To the editor:
    The best Congressional candidate on the ballot Nov. 6 is without a doubt Bill Adkins, a native son, born in Letcher County. Knowing he was born in Letcher County, you won’t be surprised to learn he worked as a track laborer for the L&N railroad, in coal mines, and in construction on the way to earning his law degree in 1999. He knows the pride of the labor of his work and of striving for a better future. He wants to help build a better future for all Kentuckians.

  • Government belongs to us

    To the editor:
    There is an increasing awareness among Americans that this nation is headed toward a dangerous direction. Our Christian faith and values, national sovereignty, and the free market economy have all been maligned by the left. During the past four years, we have witnessed an unprecedented assault on basic liberty and constitutional government. The nation many of us grew up in is disappearing.

  • Republicans all the way

    To the editor:

  • TEA Party pushes for Republicans

    To the editor:
    Evidently Jim Pinson of the Harrison County Tea Party assumes people in Harrison County cannot read. His letter to the editor in the Oct. 18 edition of The Cynthiana Democrat epitomizes his party and its associates, the Republican Party: both have double-speak whittled down to a very fine, but incredibly ridiculous point. As Gertrude Stein put it, “A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose.”

  • Recreation does matter

    To the editor:
    This letter is in response to last week’s article “Parks and Recreation issue stirs heated debate at fiscal court.” I take issue with Mr. Copes’ statement “Parks and Recreation will cost county taxpayers much more and deliver little to no benefits to the county.”
    Are you serious?  

  • Awesome New York trip

    To the editor:
    I had the good fortune of going to New York City on what is known as the “Homemaker Trip.” It was awesome.
    The tour included “Ground Zero,” a place like no other place. Security is very heavy. Policemen patrolled the area. I approached the policemen and I thanked them for their service. I proudly told them I was from Cynthiana, Ky. where I served as Mayor for eight years.
