  • Would like to read comments from different perspective

    To the editor:
    Before there was the anthem; before there was the flag itself, there was the Declaration of Independence. Many people know the following passage: “We hold these truths to be self evident; that all men are created equal.” Fewer people know the passage that states “In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms; our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.”

  • Restoring a Halloween tradition at the courthouse

    Do you remember going trick or treating as a child? The excitement of getting treats? Getting to eat the candy before bed on Halloween night?
    One memory that I recall is going to the courthouse to trick or treat.
    It was the best place in town to gather a bag full of treats. Often, that was the only stop you would need to make. The treats would include apples and cookies and even an orange drink. Of course, sweet candy was a must.
    I want to provide a safe and central location for our kids to trick or treat.  

  • Not necessarily through the woods

    In spite of not knowing where in the world summer went, the leaves are turning, vegetables in our gardens are getting scarce, and we see Halloween decorations sprouting up like mushrooms all over town.
    Good things happen during Fall.
    For instance, have you noticed that the band up on the Hilltop is bringing home enough hardware to warrant new trophy cases?
    Our Bourbon band friends are also celebrating victories up and down Kentucky and Ohio highways.  

  • “Fall” in love with Harrison County back roads

    For too long this year, summer has refused to surrender.  We have endured high temperatures and dry, crunchy grass for so long that fall sneaked up without our notice.  
    All of a sudden, leaves have begun turning.  In fact, after this weekend’s windy weather, some trees are already sporting bare branches.
