Today's Opinions

  • PARK DEVELOPMENT WILL TAKE TIME AND MONEY

    With weather forecasts calling for highs in the mid-80s this week, no one can argue that summer is right around the corner, begging us to come outside and bask in all its glory.

    It’s this time of the year when Cynthiana and Harrison County residents step outside their doorsteps, feel the warm glow, then scratch their head and say, “Well, what are we going to do outside?”

  • Purse back with owner after being lost at HCHS graduation

    To the editor:

    My appreciation and gratitude goes out to the kind and honest person who gave security a purple wristlet purse at Harrison County’s graduation. Thank you so much!

  • Thanks to all who supported Longest Day of Play activities

    To the editor,

     My son, Ian Boland, 7, and myself, would like to thank the Community Health Partnership Wellness Subcommittee for hosting the Longest Day of Play at FRVP on June 21. Our community was one of several in all of Kentucky that marked the summer solstice with a new perspective of fun outdoor games that encourage children to get active. There were 20 booths that were managed by various community organizations, and as always, our community comes together for a good cause.

  • ‘Will we ever truly learn?’

    This morning I noticed a teeny frog hopping around my bathroom.

    My first thought — I hope my husband doesn’t see it because he’ll give me that I-told-you-to-keep-the-door-shut look.

    My second thought, however — You poor, dumb frog, so teeny. You’re probably just a baby and I don’t have any froggy food in my house and if you don’t get accidentally stepped on, you’ll surely die from hunger unless you find your way back outside.

  • Congratulations to Whitaker and 2010 baseball champions

    To the editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate coach Mac Whitaker, his coaching staff and all the members of the baseball team on a very successful season and winning their fourth state baseball title.

     You will never know how proud I was listening to the state title game via the internet and my high school winning.

  • Patience appreciated at recent city commission meeting

    To the editor:

    Recently I went to a city council meeting. It was attended by a number of folks. Some of those in attendance were there to present an issue of importance to them. They all shared their thoughts in turn and were heard and dealt with respectfully. As I sat and watched the proceedings, which also dealt with other local issues, I was aware of how the members of the council dealt with each other and the topics - very patiently. It seems to me I was sensing the presence of God in this meeting.

  • EMS APPRECIATION WEEK

    There’s several occupations I know I should never try.

    I could never be a farmer... although I was recently successful in my attempt to herd a calf into its field after it strayed into the Darnell backyard last week.

    I could never be a teacher. I wasn’t granted the gift of patience.

    I could never be a semi-truck driver. My mom’s van is the largest thing I should be allowed to drive.

    And I could never be an emergency medical service worker.

  • Realizing sin and embracing the joy of being forgiven

    When I was a kid, every Saturday morning I attended catechism classes at our local church.

    Catechism is a summary of principles of doctrine or fundamentals of a faith, often in question and answer form.

    Every Saturday morning I sat in a classroom and the teacher quizzed us on what we needed to know about our beliefs: Who is God? God is the Creator of heaven and earth.

    Who is Jesus Christ? Jesus Christ is the Son of God made man.

    I can still recite some of my catechism lessons from 40-plus years ago.
