  • Saying "well done" to a county treasure

    To the editor:
    Harrison County Cooperative Extension is losing one dedicated agent when Cheryl Case retires. I know this first hand because  I was serving as Homemaker president when she started her journey with Extension.  
    We were both pretty “green” when she arrived. However, it didn’t take long for Cheryl to hit the floor running  teaching, supporting, encouraging, and learning about the “homemakers” of Harrison County.  

  • Women should be allowed to play

    To the editor:
    I am confused about a Harrison County issue that involved the local churches ball teams. All of a sudden the women cannot play. Why? Why? Why?
    It was never an issued before. These women that feel athletic enjoy supporting their church in anyway they can and should have that privilege and honor.
    If the answers are due to injuries or sexual harassment, that should not be, cause it can heppen to males as well as females. I’m sure this is understood when they sign up to play.

  • Misleading readers and taxpayers

    To the editor:
    A recent article headlined that Tobacco buyout money is still leading Harrison County farm  subsidies is totally misleading to area farmers and taxpayers.
    The payments are for the repeal of the price support and quota program, not a subsidy.
    Subsidy is defined as aid directly granted by government to be deemed beneficial to the public.

  • Beefing up on 2013 General Assembly plans

    The General Assembly returned to the capitol last week, kicking off another legislative session as it always does in odd-numbered years: electing House and Senate leaders and establishing membership of the various committees for the next two years.
    I’m proud to say that I will have the opportunity to serve again as chairman of the House Agriculture and Small Business Committee, which gives me a strong voice in setting the state’s policy in these two areas.  

  • School Board Recognition Month

    To the editor:
    The people of Cynthiana and Harrison County are fortunate to have chosen a group of their fellow citizens to take responsibility for the community’s most precious resource and a key to its future – children and their educational opportunities.
    Mary June Brunker, Kristy Carey, Gary Lizer, Ed Taylor, and Dr. Don Stephens have agreed to serve this community because they care about those kids and their futures. And they serve at minimal compensation for maximum responsibilities, often under clouds of misunderstanding.

  • America is headed down hill

    To the editor:
    I look at the path American is going down today, and while it doesn’t scare me because I know God is still in control, and always will be, it does disturb me to think about the future generations.
