  • Harrison County Tea Party

    To the editor:
    I am convinced that major changes are needed in our government before it is too late.
    I am concerned that we have too much regulation, which stifles not only our individual freedoms, but curtails free enterprise. It is no wonder, manufacturers moved their companies (and our jobs) offshore...
    I am concerned that our government officials are not concerned about efficient use of our tax dollars. They seem inept at making hard but fiscally sound decisions...

  • Cemetery needs more supervision

    To the editor:
    I don’t know if this will do me any good, but I feel that others need to know what goes on in Battle Grove Cemetery.

  • Helping hounds find homes

    To the editor:
    We are writing to tell your readers about a recently formed non-profit animal welfare organization in Harrison County, Helping Hounds Find Homes.  Its objective is to rescue and transport homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens to non-profit, no kill shelters and foster homes where the animals will await adoption to forever homes.
    In 2010, 2,307 unwanted dogs and cats entered Flora Shropshire Animal Shelter.  Of that number 437 were adopted, 130 were returned to owners, 381 went to rescue and 950 were euthanized.

  • We're all in this together

    To the editor:
    After being born and raised in Harrison County and living here for 50 plus years I feel that I am more than qualified to voice my concerns on a subject that I am certain numerous others have witnessed to a massive degree (and am baffled as to why no grievances have been publicly voiced) . . . Litter!

  • We appreciate all the continued support

    To the editor:
    To the Churches, Community and Businesses of Harrison County,

    I would like to personally thank all of you who helped the Clothing Closet in the move to our new home. Many made monetary donations which helped us with the purchase of our biggest need - new underwear and socks.

  • Taxed enough already is what we are

    To the editor:

  • Slapping speeders on the hands will not solve driving issues

    Well, it’s 2012 and as I sit here watching TV, I think of the people I won’t get to see this year due to death.
    I listen to the news every night and hear of people dying in auto accidents.
    Since Christmas, people have died on Kentucky roadways. Wrecks are termed accidents, but actually that terminology is wrong. Most wrecks should be classified as a bad decisions.
    Five days a week, I drive 200-300 miles on highways and interstates. I see all those bad decisions.

  • Change your ways or die on the vine!

    To the editor:
    I do not understand the banner at the courthouse. Is it a plea or is it a threat?
    People driving through town must think, “what losers the merchants must be to put up such a banner.”
    We live in a capitalistic society. To succeed you must offer a good product or service at a fair price with good service.
    When citizens get gouged by larcenous gas prices sooner or later they will go elsewhere and while there will go shopping.
