  • Thanks to all the football boosters

    To the editor:
    On Aug. 4, the Harrison County Football boosters recognized our parents, Harold and Ann Clinkenbeard, for their longtime support of the Harrison County football program.
    We would like to thank the association for honoring our mom with a very nice plaque and the kind and heartfelt words spoken at the banquet.
    Mom and dad not only supported Breds football. They regularly drycleaned band uniforms and cheerleader outfits as a service to those programs.

  • More free cat and dog spay/neuters

    To the editor:
    I am writing to tell your readers about a wonderful monetary grant the Humane Society of Harrison County has received from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). Because of this new funding we have been able to increase the number of free cat and dog spay/neuters we do monthly from 24 to 30 in our spay/neuter drawing program. All quality veterinary care is provided by Brooks Animal Clinic and Harrison Vet Clinic.

  • Celebrating 20 Years of Kid’s College

    To the editor:
    Kids College 2012 was wildly successful. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the 159 children who attended Kids College this year as well as their parents for allowing them to participate.
    The children were able to experience a variety of classes. Some classes where familiar favorites from the past and some brand new. This program has grown into a community favorite over the 20 years that it has been offered and that would not be possible without the help of many people.

  • Food Pantry low on funds

    To the editor:
    It is time for an update on the food pantry. The pantry has been doing real well through the past two months but with school being out and the recession being bad, it has finally caught up with us and we are now feeling the pinch.
    We have seen more clients in this summer, some are new one and then some that has not been there for a year or so, with this being the case, it means we have had to purchase more. The donations, monetary and food drives have been down and it is beginning to hit us.

  • River is not a trash can

    To the editor:
    I went fishing in the river and while I was wading couldn’t help noticing trash which is always sadly expected. You can’t go anywhere in the world without seeing human garbage but what surprised me was the amount of tires in the water. I’m sure not all of them are from this county and for a lot of folks including myself every dollar counts in todays times but discarding tires in our waterways isn’t the answer.

  • Thanks for all the community support

    To the editor:
    It is an honor to follow Mike Reitz as head coach of the Thorobred basketball program. I’m optimistic about the upcoming basketball season. We recently completed a youth basketball camp and we entertained a total of 91 future Thorobred campers during the week. Community involvement enhanced our week.

  • Ask God to enlighten our minds during voting

    To the editor:
    I am a Christian, Catholic, veteran; along with my two brothers we served 54 years. Needless to say, we are proud of our heritage and we served to protect.
    However, our present president and some of the legislators, have failed to realize the contents of our constitution- “protect life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
    Look at the accomplishments of our present president and legislators who are seeking re-election.
    1) ”We are not a Christian country.”

  • Berry post office needs help

    To the editor:
    This letter concerns the patrons serviced in the 41003 zip code area. Are you aware the Berry Post Office is in jeopardy? The postal district has decided to cut the operating hours to three or four a day. The next step most probably will be to close the office all together. All the details have not been finalized as of this date.

  • Kentucky's Strongest Man thanks all

    To the editor:

  • Good stewards of the earth

    To the editor:
    While it is important to combat invasive and pervasive speices by spraying, unfortunatley there are casulties. One of these casulities here in the county is that we have killed off the milkweed plant which the monarch butterflies must have to survive.
    I am a certified wild-life habitat gardener from the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife (among other things) and I have on hand about 500 or so seeds that need to be planted this coming spring.
