  • Thank you for the privilege to serve

    To the editor:
    To the voters of Harrison County, thank you for the opportunity to serve the 1st Magisterial District for the last four years. It has truly been an honor to be associated with the men and women on the fiscal court. The decisions that have been made in that short time will positively affect the county for years to come.

    I would like to take a moment to express my gratitude to the citizens of Cynthiana for their overwhelming support during the recent election.  Thank you for electing me your new mayor.  I truly believe that Cynthiana can be a great city and I look forward to working hard to make that a reality.  It is going to take us all to achieve big things.  I am confident that Cynthiana’s better days are ahead of her.

  • The giving spirit is a welcome part of early Christmas

    How can stores already have out Christmas decorations? Santa Claus and Rudolph? Christmas trees for heaven’s sakes!
    Yikes, let us at least get through Thanksgiving. Is this how the majority of people feel? Most likely.
    However, for some people, it’s Christmas all the time.

  • School thanks local business for educational program

    To the editor:
    I would like to pass along my sincere thanks to Dale Wilson and Judy Construction for helping me teach my students real-world applications of engineering.
    Judy Construction recently financed a field trip to Danville’s Water Treatment plant which is currently being renovated. Two lessons for the price of one - water quality and construction! My 8th Grade Lab Class thoroughly enjoyed AND learned from the experience!
    I would also like to thank our local Healey’s McDonald’s for providing coupons used to eat in Danville.

  • Make your infants weird this Halloween

    It’s scary sometimes what the internet teaches me about myself.
    When just browsing on the web, I try to resist clicking links to the teaser articles that have numbers in their headlines.
    You know the types of ‘articles’ I’m talking about:
    “7 Oscar-winning actors who started out as slasher movie victims”;
    “The 12 greatest horror movies you’ve never seen”;
    “8 words about 12 high-calorie desserts from 21 greasy spoon cafes in the American south.”
