  • Fired workers' rights violated

    To the editor:
    Last week I saw on the news about a company in Northern Kentucky firing workers because they were praying.  
    A man they interviewed is not originally from the United States but said it was crazy to fire them especially since we have “freedom of religion.”  

  • Sen. Palmer appreciates support

    To the editor:
    It has been both an honor and a privilege to serve as your state senator for many years. You elected me to represent Harrison County.  I appreciate all the support I have received from the community throughout the years and am grateful to the citizens for allowing me to serve.

  • Reader appreciates tribute to veterans in Democrat

    To the editor:
    I want to express my deep appreciation to The Democrat for publishing a special tribute to all those who have served our country, both past and present. It is not only patriotic to provide this service but also it shows sincere honor and respect. At a time when we observe some of our officials showing absolute neglect and even disdain for veterans’ benefits, it is commendable to see someone doing the right thing.

  • Bypass should be 27, not 62

    To the editor:
    I think since the newly opened by-pass around Cynthiana runs on the west side of our town from US 27 on the north side to US 27 on the south side, it should be called US 27 by-pass and the old US 27 through town should be named US 27 business. I don’t agree with it being called US 62 in any way.

  • There are good people in this world

    To the editor:
    There are still a lot of good people in the world. We seem only hear of the bad ones.
    Sunday after I left church I stopped by Lee’s Famous Recipe to pick up some lunch for myself. Placed my order and when I drove up to pay for my meal, the young lady said, “The individual in front of you just paid for your lunch.”  
    I thanked her and drove off. On the way home I was thinking “Pay it forward” and that is what I will do sometime.  
    Thank you whoever you are, you made my day much brighter.

  • Cynthiana United Community Fund an excellent way to help locally

    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.

  • Mailbag

    To the editor:

    Myself and some of our neighbors have contacted our county officials about a residence in Oddville that piles their trash beside a small creek, burns it and it appears they wait for a heavy rain to come and wash the metal and melted plastics away. This has been going on all summer and it seems nothing has been done to stop it.
