  • Beta Club sponsors Kayla Poteet memorial scholarship

    To the editor:

    Harrison County High School National Beta Club chapter is in need of your assistance in providing a memorial scholarship in honor of a late classmate. Kayla Poteet’s young life ended tragically her junior year, in an automobile accident, devastating her classmates, school and community.

  • Rohs continues to entertain town, needs community support

    To the editor:

    Hats off to all 15 contestants who competed in the first round of the #3 Cynthiana Idol competition. I invited two of my grandchildren to accompany me to the Rohs Opera House Friday evening and we were thoroughly entertained.

    I want to thank the Rohs for being creative and coming up with family fun events. I encourage our Cynthiana community to support the Rohs by their attendance.

  • Perhaps we’re all called to be just like Hur

    Once a week my husband meets with a friend to talk sports while I stay at home, close to the computer, to look up obscure sports trivia such as “When was the last time a Canadian hockey team won the Stanley Cup?” (Montreal, 1992.)

    Here’s a bit of sports trivia: How many points did Football Hall of Famer Ed “Too Tall” Jones score during his career? The answer: none.

    He played in 245 games, made 1,032 tackles, blocked 86 passes, was credited with 57 quarterback sacks and 19 fumble recoveries, but not one touchdown and not even one field goal.

  • TUESDAY IS PRIMARY ELECTION

    Tuesday is the primary election.

    To say it’s an important primary election would be an understatement. Many Harrison County political offices will be on Tuesday’s ballot, including sheriff, jailer and some magistrate and constable positions.

    It might be May, but for some of those running, it feels like November.

    Over 12,000 voters are registered in Harrison County. In the 2008 primary, only 33.9 percent of those registered voters came to the polls and cast ballots.

  • Underage drinking can lead to deadly consequences, says KSP

    To the editor:

    We are nearing the time where many young people will celebrate a lifetime of accomplishments as they graduate from high school and move toward their life goals. Family and friends will gather together for a festive occasion to commemorate this awesome milestone.

    Traditionally, this is also a time when alcohol enters into the mix and brings tragic results for all involved. Alcohol is the most commonly used drug among American youth and it kills 5,000 teens every year.

  • Handwritten letters

    I have a small box in my room that is filled with cards.

    I save every note and letter I receive - those wishing me ‘Happy Birthday,’ those thanking me for something, those just saying ‘hey’ and those that say more than we’re ever capable of saying face-to-face.

    And I treasure them all, especially those that showcase my niece’s newly developed cursive writing, or my grandmother’s distinct print or my mother’s even and predictable letters.

  • ‘Pull lever one’ for Fuller

    To the editor:

    On May 18, Harrison County residents will be going to the polls to cast their votes for a vital office within the law enforcement community.

    I know all three candidates and am friends with all three as well. 

    I am supporting Roger Fuller to be our Sheriff and ask you to do the same. Roger began his career as a teenager dispatching for the Cynthiana Police Department and then became a dispatcher for the Kentucky State Police/Dry Ridge until his acceptance to become a State Trooper.
