Letters

  • Put United States of America first, and vote

    To the editor:
    “That this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people by the people for the people shall not perish from the earth”. Those words were spoken by Abraham Lincoln in his Gettysburg Address after a great battle that threatened the existence of our nation. Today we are engaged in a different type of battle that also threatens our nation. Apathy. Would we have the problems of today if we had taken the time to learn and understand the issues our state and nation are faced with, and voted?

  • Todd P’Pool for Attorney General

    To the editor:
    Todd P’Pool, Republican candidate for Attorney General, was born in Madisonville, Ky. on June 22, 1973. Todd grew up around the same western Kentucky coal fields that provided for his family for four generations. In 1995 Todd earned a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Kentucky College of Business and Economics and graduated from U.K. College of Law.

  • Grime’s goal

    To the editor:

  • I salute and support Johnson for Secretary of State

    To the editor:
    I love living in Kentucky. This was not my birth state nor where I grew up but for the past 11 years, it has been my and my husband’s home. He doesn’t get to enjoy it as much as I do because he is serving in the Army in another state. Being a veteran myself, as is my father, two of my brothers and my father-in-law, I hold service to one’s country in the highest regard. Whenever I look at a field of candidates for public office, this is one of my first questions: Did the candidate serve America to the best of his or her ability?

  • Don’t check the box next to David Williams

    To the editor:
    David Williams is exactly who we do not need as governor of Kentucky. A fat-cat career politician who has done nothing for this state except ensure we live in the dark ages.
    Voters, ask yourselves, what has David Williams ever done for me or my community. I think most will find the answer is nothing. If he is so great, one would think after all of his years in office our state would be in better shape than it is now. It is not. He is an obstructionist to progress and he has lived off the taxpayers long enough.

  • A special thanks from the heart

    To the editor:
    I received my new heart in May 2011 and I’m now on my way to recovery.
    I want to specifically thank our local 911 dispatchers (234-7100 for non-emergency calls) for helping us the night I got the call to get to Louisville as soon as possible for my new heart. Since I had a limited time window to reach the hospital, the local dispatchers assisted in transferring a call to the Georgetown/Scott County dispatch for assistance.

  • Harrison Co. United Community Fund

    To the editor:
    The United Community Fund has been working in Cynthiana and Harrison County since 1972 to raise funds for local community needs such as assisting families in crisis, developing children, helping seniors and encouraging the health and well being of our community.  

  • Support David Williams for Senate President

    To the editor:
    I write in support of the gubernatorial candidacy of senate president David Williams. To those voters who consider themselves conservative, those who favor limited government, lower taxes, fewer rules and regulations, maximum economic and personal freedom, and maximum respect for the conscience of each individual person, I particularly address the following:

  • “No spraying”

    To the editor:
    To quote Joni Mitchell, “Don’t it always seem to go/ya don’t know what ya got ‘til it is gone.” For example, we haven’t had water consistently here at my house for three weeks now, but I digress.

  • No more bailouts for privately owned businesses

    To the editor:
    I would like to take the time to publicly thank Magistrate Frank Henson. In an age where bailouts, handouts and stimulus packages are seemingly more common, Mr. Henson is a man who sees the bottom line. I agree that the county has absolutely no business funding a private business.
