  • OK, let’s stop!

    The other morning my friend and co-worker Cristy and I devised a solution for all the major problems of the universe.
    Everybody stop.
    Just stop. Take a breath. Step back. Chill out.
    Politicians, stop politicking. Forget about focus groups and pork spending and back room deals and war room strategies. Democrats aren’t evil and neither are Republicans, so stop treating people with whom you disagree as enemies. We’re all Americans, so stop!

  • Ask God to enlighten our minds during voting

    To the editor:
    I am a Christian, Catholic, veteran; along with my two brothers we served 54 years. Needless to say, we are proud of our heritage and we served to protect.
    However, our present president and some of the legislators, have failed to realize the contents of our constitution- “protect life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
    Look at the accomplishments of our present president and legislators who are seeking re-election.
    1) ”We are not a Christian country.”

  • Berry post office needs help

    To the editor:
    This letter concerns the patrons serviced in the 41003 zip code area. Are you aware the Berry Post Office is in jeopardy? The postal district has decided to cut the operating hours to three or four a day. The next step most probably will be to close the office all together. All the details have not been finalized as of this date.

  • Kentucky's Strongest Man thanks all

    To the editor:

  • Good stewards of the earth

    To the editor:
    While it is important to combat invasive and pervasive speices by spraying, unfortunatley there are casulties. One of these casulities here in the county is that we have killed off the milkweed plant which the monarch butterflies must have to survive.
    I am a certified wild-life habitat gardener from the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife (among other things) and I have on hand about 500 or so seeds that need to be planted this coming spring.

  • Much expected of new parks and recreation board

    As summer is drawing to an end, I hope that recreation will be better defined in the near future.
    As many know by now, the county and the city have agreed to enter into an inter-local agreement which will combine all parks and recreation.
    First off, let me go on record as saying that I heavily support the decision of the county and city to do so.

  • Things are ‘picking up’ at Rev. Ross Park

    Barely a handful of Cynthiana men are wanting some changes in their neighborhood park and they are willing to put in the sweat equity to make it work.
    Their hearts are in the right place.
    “It’s for the kids,” said Howard, aka “Hud,” Custard, who is just one of the voices behind a plan to grow the Rev. Ross Park.
    There used to be swings in the small park that runs along side the South Fork of the Licking River.
