  • National Hospice and Palliative Care Month

    To the editor:
    November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month. It is never too early to learn about the services hospice can provide. Medical, emotional and spiritual needs are only a few of the things hospice can help (provide) patients and family when dealing with the worst days of their lives.
    Nine years ago my family met the hospice team when my husband Jack was dealing with cancer. What a blessing they were to us after he died. I told Hospice of the Bluegrass that I needed to give back what I received.

  • Community support keeps us going

    To the editor:
    I would like to thank the community for all the generous donations to the Harrison County Commission on Aging, Inc. Our clients and staff of the Harrison County Senior Citizens Center do appreciate your generous support. In addition I would also like to thank our County and City Government and Cynthiana-Harrison County United Community Fund for their very generous funding every year. All donations and funding are used for services and programs for our clients.

  • Holidays... the good, bad and ugly

    Oh the painful holidays.
    Stress reaches its peak during the months where we set aside all human characteristics and common sense before becoming walking zombies as we look forward to the new year.
    If memory serves me right, I think I have preached on the mighty soap-box before on how I think the holidays have become less than what their original intentions may have been.
    So not to make a repeat for the readers, I will try and shed light on the positives of the season and not look down the dark side of last minute shopping and bumper-to-bumper traffic.

  • Appreciates United Community Fund support

    To the editor:
    On behalf of the Harrison County Diabetes Coalition I would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to the Cynthiana-Harrison County United Community Fund for the support they have given us over the years. The monies we have received have been used to provide diabetic supplies to the citizens of Harrison County that have an emergency need. Please support your local United Community Fund.

  • Food Pantry needs increase during holidays

    To the editor:
    I want to thank all of you that contributed to the Food Pantry back in the summer when we had a very low time. All of you were very generous to help keep the doors open and serve many in need.
    Some of you have ask, is there some that abuse the pantry? My answer to that is not if we can help it. We keep pretty close tabs on the clients, but if some gets by us, that is between them and God. The number that really needs it and does not abuse it far outweighs those who do, so rest assured we are doing all we can to keep it running correctly.
