  • Maximize timber profits with information

    To the editor:
    Hello all you NIPFO’s out there. Yup, I’m speaking to the farmers. The acronym stands for Non Industrial Private Forest Owners. According to the UK Cooperative Extension Service, 89 percent of Kentucky’s timberland is owned by you.  
    Cutting timber is often a once in a lifetime project and so I thought a few pointers might help. When you decide to cut the timber find out what is in “your account” by calling the Bluegrass District Office in Frankfort.

  • It’s time to open your eyes and prepare yourself for the May primary

    To the editor:
    If I were a bettin’ man, I’d be willing to bet that there are a lot of folks that don’t know there is a primary coming up in May. Everywhere I go, people look at my vehicle and all the bumper stickers and chalk markings on the rear window, and they usually say (with amazement), “Is there an election coming up?”
    I also get a lot of “I just don’t keep up with those things like I should.” And they shake their heads sadly.

  • Group seeking fiscal government responsibility

    To the editor:
    America has reached a tipping point.  Not only has the federal government grown in spending but in its reach to state and local governments.  
    The federal government now dominates activity that was traditionally reserved to the states, leaving little or no room for state-level innovation in policy areas such as education, transportation, health care, welfare and even law enforcement. They have so grossly expanded public-sector debt that, as of today, each and every man, woman and child carries a debt burden of over $45,000.

  • Dr. King march participants and donations appreciated

    To the editor:
    The Macedonia Baptist Church wishes to thank Donna Slone and the Maysville Community College, Mark Bell, Mike Jones, B & B Foods Services, and Dr. Gerald Smith. It was enjoyed very much. Also anyone that took a part in making our Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. program a success. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. May God bless all.

  • Local Kiwanis Club appreciated for its commitment to kids

    To the editor:
    While the decorations have been put up for another year and the holiday season fades into memory, Sunrise Children’s Services would like to take a moment to thank those who made this a wonderful Christmas for the children in our care.

  • Superintendent honors school board members during January

    To the editor:
    As superintendent of Harrison County Schools, I’m extremely proud of the students and teachers, the administrators and the service workers who are the heart and soul of the Harrison County School System. And I’m also proud of the district leadership this community has put in place through the members of the Harrison County Board of Education.

  • Thank God for wonderful people

    Today, while stopping at Ken’s to pick up a turkey, I accidentally laid my keys down, along with my telephone and stepped out, hitting the lock as I did.
    After saying to myself that everyone I could call was unavailable at the time, I looked up and a young city police officer drove up. I flagged him down and he immediately got help for me. He was so polite and nice.
    A few minutes later, two wonderful people from the fire department came and got my door open. As I am an older person, it meant so much to me. I was so thankful.

  • Shoe box ministry support appreciated

    To the editor:
    Many, many thanks go out to all who were involved with the Operation Christmas Child Shoe box ministry.  
    Whether you packed a box, brought items for a packing party, saved empty shoe boxes, gave money or prayed for the ministry, we cannot thank you enough or tell you what a difference it will make in a child’s life.  
    I personally have heard story after story of how people got interested in the project and how it has excited them as well.

  • Not all veterans recognized in annual newspaper edition

    To the editor:
    Being born and raised in Cynthiana, it is always good to get news from home, which I still consider Cynthiana to be (smiles). I’ve read the Democrat online and in print for a number of years and last week’s edition was really a disappointment. In observance of Veteran’s Day, there was a second section of the Nov. 11 edition ‘Honoring our Armed Forces’.

  • United Fund support to Diabetes Coalition is appreciated

    To the editor:
    The Harrison County Diabetes Coalition would like to thank the United Fund for the monetary donations we have received over the years.  Because of your support, we have been able to continue our emergency assistance program that provides medications and testing supplies for Harrison County residents.  
    Due to the increase in the number of individuals being diagnosed with diabetes, the need for our services has increased as well.  Thank you again for your invaluable support.
