    On Saturday morning, April 1, I want to Walmart to get groceries and a 24 pack of water. As I went out the door of the store I prayed that the Lord would help me get the things into my car.
    After opening the trunk I turned around to start putting them in and a gracious lady pulled her cart beside mine and asked if I needed help and that is when she became “A Servant of God.” She had no idea I had asked God for help. God truly does answer prayer.

    We thought the Recreation Department was supposed to offer equal opportunity sports for kids. For the age group we paid $50 just like the others. Yes, we are aware the ‘coaches’ are volunteers, yet one team in particular knows nothing about equal opportunity.

    There has been a lot of talk about the expansion of Central Landfill in Scott County.  Some of the information being given out is incorrect.
    The incorrect information includes:
    1. That no out-of-state waste is being accepted currently or that it will be accepted in the future,
    2. That there will be no rail haul, and
    3. That the landfill will close if the expansion is denied.

    I am not a farmer. I want to remind everyone, including me, to plant seeds to take care of the bees. Most everyone knows that we need to have bees. We also enjoy eating honey. We need to spread a lot of honey around. Perhaps a kinder, gentler community could be cultivated.
    It would be nice to send our president a jar of honey or two. It just might sweeten him up a bit. He needs to know honey attracts. Its a good thing.

    A great lady, Dorothy Mooney, passed away last week.  
    She was loved by us all. I can’t imagine what it will be like not seeing her walk all over town. She was a customer of mine, but more like a mother to me, and was a volunteer for everything good. She was everywhere, doing everything, age or illness never slowed her down. We will miss you, Miss Mooney. My condolences to your family.....

    It has been a while since I have written to you about the Food Pantry. I want to take this opportunity to thank the community for the love, concern and contributions that have been brought in or sent in this past year.
    This community, from the very outer edge of Harrison County to the vary center of Cynthiana has been involved, from volunteering help, to food contributions to monetary help.

    I am a little late in writing to tell you what a great community we live in and how thankful we are for you. The staff at the Senior Center and Adult Day has worked very hard to meet the needs of the people in our community and this could not be done without your support or generosity.
    Thank you for helping us meet the needs of the seniors and individuals with disabilities. A few items that we have done or working towards.

    Attention Harrison County farmers! Have I got something for you! The Harrison County Chapter of the Young Farmers of America will be restarting its meetings on Jan. 2, 2017 at 7 p.m. at the Farm Bureau meeting room on Hwy. 27 S. (notice the new venue).
    We meet every Monday night, January through March/early April. We only meet during the months when farmers are less busy.
    Come join us to discuss the ups and downs of farming, learn from each other and get important tips from area agricultural experts. Hope to see you there.

    I can sympathize with the Marshall family. We all need to try and have more compassion for each other.
    On Aug. 1, 2000, we lost our daughter, Jessica Marie, to a rare and aggressive bone cancer.
    About two weeks later, Becky Barnes from the Democrat, contacted me by phone wanting to do an article.
    The article wasn’t about Jessica’s life and how courageously she fought.
    It was about a Make A Wish gift, a car. Jessica did not receive the car from Make A Wish. Her dad bought the car for her.

    Mike Aldridge recently wrote an article titled Tragedy in our county. And, I realize he was referring to the death of young Brett Persinger. I agree losing him is a tragedy; he sounds like a wonderful young man who had a great future ahead of him, and he was important to so many.
    However, after reading this article, I realized something else that is a tragedy, the attitude of some people, namely Mr. Aldridge.
