  • Leaders owe voters more than lip service

    To the editor:

    Two years ago, the taxpaying voters of Cynthiana elected a new set of officials into our public offices. Two years ago, those same officials were only candidates who ran campaigns with slogans like, Its time for change or Together we can make it happen.

    After two years of this new leadership, it is painfully obvious that change must mean that we went from a payor who made numerous positive strides forward to a mayor who has, to date, failed to deliver on even one major campaign promise.

  • Neighbors thank the community for all the help after tornado

    To the editor:

    On Feb. 6, 2008, our lives changed forever. Only by the grace of God, were we spared and given the opportunity to rebuild what once was our home and our lives.

    Betsy and I would like to sincerely thank our family, our friends and our local community for all the prayers and gifts that have been provided to us during this difficult time in our lives. We are so blessed that the only loss in Harrison County was material in nature and we had no loss of life. The material items can be replaced.

  • Tax change could have economic backlash

    To the editor:

    In 2006, the City of Cynthiana enacted the Rental Housing Business License, Ordinance #1407. As landlords, we were told the reason for the ordinance was to cause landlords to clean up their properties so the community may attract more business.

  • Graduation location should serve the needs of families

    To the editor:

    We, as parents, are concerned about the choice of venue for Harrison County High School graduation exercises and the capacity/ticket limit that venue may dictate.

    What family member will be told they cannot attend? Will it be the grandfather/grandmother, aunt/uncle, sister/brother who have babysat and helped raise the graduate while mom and dad are at work to provide for the family?

  • Public unity is the only way to beat gas problem

    To the editor:

    I only have one question for all of the gas merchants nationwide and Ill throw in our wonderful government as well on this. I ask, for someone to step up to the plate and explain why we, the American people, are being robbed at the gas pumps.

    We get our fuel source from Canada not from Saudia Arabia like we are led to believe and it is nothing more than a monopoly.

    People, we need to start boycotting the gas, starting with the truckers. It was good enough in the 60s and it will work now.
