Today's Opinions

  • Data Center needs support

    Dear editor,
    For any of you running for an office in this country, you need to spend a few hours at the Berry Center after 4:00 p.m. for an extremely full house scenario of why the Center is so important. If the Center is closed where will these 15 - 20 kids go after school? Where will the adults go that use and so desperately need this access to the tech world? If they are like me, they don’t have reception at home, or they can’t afford the price of such conveniences.

  • State laws threaten voting rights

    Dear editor,
    I am writing to encourage the readers of The Cynthiana Democrat to register to vote. Your vote is your voice for Democracy.
    The last day to register is April 21, 2014.
    Please register. Don’t be left out of the voting process. Your voice needs to be heard loud and clear.
    In Kentucky, your vote is not threatened, but your cousins in Ohio and other states may not get to register or vote.

  • Family finds hope amid disaster

    To the editor:
    Words cannot begin to express our growing gratitude for all God has done in our lives. Though our lives have changed drastically and the days have been hard, I am in awe of the positive changes that have occurred and are still occurring in our lives.

  • Owen clerk endorses Furnish

    To the editor:

    I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Linda Furnish as Harrison County Clerk. I highly recommend Linda as a candidate to serve again as your county clerk.

  • Hampton an excellent Sheriff

    To the editor:

    Sheriff Bruce Hampton has proven to be an excellent sheriff and has done so much good for our community on all levels.
    He is a dad, husband and granddad who believes in standing up for what is right and helping to keep our families safe.
    I appreciate Sheriff Hampton and his family for the sacrifices they’ve made for our community.

  • Friend found thanks to readers

    To the editor:

    Many thanks for printing my last “Letter to the Editor.” We found Carl Taylor at the Veterans Center in Wilmore and I have received a letter from him. I’m so grateful to connect with him once again.
    Just one person replied to my letter in your paper and that was Jeanette Sowder of Cynthiana, but that’s all it took. I’m very grateful that she took the time to write me. I may have a new pen pal!
    Thank you for your phone call and the follow-up to my inquiry.

  • City does not need parking lot

    To the editor:

    Thank you Becky Barnes for your editorial concerning another parking lot on Pike Street. I agree with you completely.
    If the building on Pike and Walnut Sts. must be torn down, let’s turn the area into a pretty little park. We would have something that we could be proud of - not another parking lot.
    A very concerned citizen.

  • Finding ways to improve Kentucky's roads

    If there is one issue that binds today’s legislators with our counterparts who served more than two centuries ago, it’s finding ways to improve Kentucky’s roads.
