  • 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.

    The Connersville Committee, Cynthiana Democrat, WCYN radio, Facebook & Connersville Alumni students got the word out for the Connersville reunion honoring Charles Tribble.
    Close to 300 were in attendance for the event. The event was a huge success because of the love and respect for Mr. Tribble by so many: not only in Harrison County, but other areas of the state he has taught. Also, in excess of $4000 was received for the Mr. Charles Tribble scholarship fund.

  • Thanks from the Fillies Softball team

    To the editor:
    I would like to take this opportunity to thank the community for its support throughout the 2012 HCHS Fillies Softball season. We had a very successful season, and it’s with the help of our community that we have been able to do that. I would like to especially thank all the local businesses that purchased an outfield sign.  

  • We have an obligation to our elderly

    To the editor:
    On behalf of the Harrison County Senior Citizens’ Center and as a member of their Board of Directors, I believe it imperative that the community be made aware of the dire financial situation in which the Center finds itself. There is a very real danger that our services will be cut or severely limited due to lack of funding.

  • Support our Senior Citizen Center

    To the editor:
    I am a 82-year-old widow, taking treatments for cancer, have a very low income. I depend on help from the home care ladies at the Senior Citizen Center. They do my shopping, my laundry, and my cleaning, also three baths per week. I need these services to stay in my home. I urge you to do everything you can to keep the center open. These ladies go above and beyond to help the elderly people like myself to stay in their homes. Thaey take money out of their own pockets to get things we need. I also receive meals three times a week. This is a lot of help to me.

  • Father's Day gift

    To the editor:
    On Monday, June 11, 2012 the Herald-Leader reported a Ford Tri-Motor airplane would fly from the Bluegrass Airport for three days. From 1926 to 1933 a total of 199 of these planes were built. Only eight from the total manufactured are still airworthy. The old plane coming to Lexington could be toured free, but a few minutes flight over Lexington would cost $80.
