Today's Opinions

  • Mothers, teachers and a southern Kentucky legacy

    Every day of every week of every month is proclaimed as something special.
    So far this month we’ve already celebrated National Prayer Day and Loyalty Day on May 1st.
    Wednesday was National Roast Leg of Lamb Day. No kidding.
    Friday, May 9, will be set aside to honor military spouses and of course Sunday is Mother’s Day.
    It’s been eight years since my mother died and I miss her every day.
    Betty Sosby, my mother, taught third grade at Florence Elementary in Boone County for as many years as I remember of her teaching career.

  • Thank you to the Fillies for Cancer Awareness game

    To the editor:
    I want to say “Thank you” to the Harrison County Fillies Softball team, Coach Christine Garnett, her staff and the awesome young ladies who play with so much heart. They recently played their game for Cancer Awareness, contributing to Hospice. I had the honor of being a part of this, sharing a special memory with my granddaughter Courtney Newsom, #25.
    The whole team presented me with a ball with all their names on it, all of those who participated hold a special place in my heart. Thanks for your support!

  • Reader endorses Steve Moses for Judge-Executive

    To the editor:
    I am writing in support of Stephen Moses for Judge Executive.
    Being a fairly new resident of Harrison County gives me a different perspective than someone who’s lived here for many years.  This is such a beautiful area with many assets and wonderful people living here.  This county is blessed compared to many in the country today.  But I do believe it needs someone in the leadership position that is looking to the future, not resting on past achievements.

  • Harsh winter leads to new needs at Food Pantry

    To the editor:
    I must apologize for being lax in this year for not keeping our community abreast of the status of the Food Pantry. The old saying “no news is good news” is true in this case.
    First, I want to thank each of you for making our 2013 Christmas Boxes a big success. We were able to make up 424 boxes. I have said it before and I say it again, this community amazes me.

  • Reader endorses incumbents Barnett, Hampton, Furnish and Harney

    To the editor:
    If it’s not broken, don’t fix it. this saying applies to several of the local Democratic primary races this year.

  • Endorsing Linda Furnish for Clerk

    To the editor:

  • What’s so “pure” about obsolete?

    So last weekend, I drove eight hours north to watch movies at the Drive-In.
    The Riverside Drive-In in Vandergrift, Penn. sponsors two film festivals a year: The April Ghoul’s Monster Rama and the Drive-In Super Monster-Rama, which happens in September.

  • Reader endorses John Green for magistrate

    To the editor:
    This upcoming election day affords the opportunity to cast votes for a lineup of new candidates as well as the incumbents for the various offices. By giving some of the deserving new candidates a chance to express their views and be instrumental in shaping the policies for Harrison County, it will encourage others in the community to step forward and be a part of positive change. One forward looking young man I endorse is John Green.
