• Stop the gas gouging

    To the editor:
    This past Wednesday I drove back to Cynthiana from the Ky. airport and happily noticed that the prices of gas were $3.49.9, $3.48.9 and $3.47.9 and at Shell in Alexandria it was $3.28.9 if you got your vehicle washed.
    Yesterday I went to town and every station I passed still had $3.75.9, the same price as it was over a week ago when we left.

  • Donations welcomed for holiday turkeys

    To the editor:
    This letter is to give the community an update on the Food Pantry. Many have ask me how it is doing, and I can say it has done well thru the summer months simply because many of you have donated produce from your gardens and other food items and money.
    The months of July and August hit us pretty hard. These two months had five weeks in them, this meant we had to buy more to keep the shelves stocked and took a big chunk out of our bank account.

  • A pat on the back for not raising taxes

    To the editor:
    I would like to take the opportunity to thank the Harrison County Fiscal Court for not raising our property taxes this year. They have recognized the fact that raising taxes will adversely affect our community in these hard economic times.

  • A personal thanks to the Harrison County Fiscal Court

    To the editor:
    I want to personally thank the Harrison County Fiscal Court for considering the current economic condition and voting to keep the tax rate the same as last year. A lot of the surrounding counties voted to increase the tax rate. We all should be proud of the current makeup of the court, as it includes youthful vision/initiative and aged wisdom (sorry, I had to say that).

  • The making of a better tomorrow

    The making of a better tomorrow

    To the editor:
    There is an old saying that goes, “He who fails to plan, plans to fail.” I believe every one of us can think of a time in our lives when we looked back after a failure or unforeseen event and wished that we had planned better. I know I have.
    A person who is going places and advancing in life usually has a game plan and an idea of where he or she wants to be in the future. As a city, we have to do this too.

  • Rugby World Cup starts on Sept. 9

    To the editor:
    If you like sports, instead of games played by over-paid prima-donnas, you might be interested in the fact that the Rugby World Cup starts on Sept. 9, 2011.
    This sport takes place all over the world and in many U.S. colleges and high schools. Of the teams participating in the world cup, you’ll get the best teams in the world which include our National team, the Eagles. While they’re one of the only amatueu teams, (they do have a few team members associated with professional teams). They have a lot of heart and don’t give up.

  • Leash law should be followed

    To the editor:
    There is still an ongoing problem with leash law on Citation Lane. People just have no respect when it comes down to controlling where their animals roam. I have six dogs and we keep them in the home unless they need to go out in the yard, which is closed in. However, the neighbors still allow their animals to keep roaming around. I have an original copy of the leash law, but nothing is being done about the problem. A few of us are getting tired of it...

    To the editor:
    We would like to take this opportunity to thank our fellow classmates of HCHS Class of 1966 for attending the 45th reunion. It was the largest group we have had. A wonderful time was enjoyed by everyone.
    I would also like to thank the reunion committee for their hard work.

  • Donations to Alabama farmers appreciated

    To the editor:
    On behalf of the Franklin County Cattlemen’s Association of Alabama I would  like to thank all of the businesses and individuals of Harrison County, Ky., who donated the truckload of fencing supplies to the tornado relief effort in Phil Campbell, Ala.  
    Many of the cattlemen whose  farms were hit by the EF-5 Tornado on April 27, 2011, lost everything (houses, barns, fences, livestock and equipment.) More than 26 people lost their lives.

  • Applauding the board of education

    To the editor:
    Harrison County Schools adopted a 24/7 tobacco-free policy for their campuses that goes into effect July 1. The Harrison County Board of Education’s efforts to protect the health and well being of our youth and teachers should not go unnoticed.  
    The Kentucky Agency for Substance Abuse Policy (KY-ASAP) applauds and thanks the Board for enacting this policy.
