Today's Opinions

  • Awesome New York trip

    To the editor:
    I had the good fortune of going to New York City on what is known as the “Homemaker Trip.” It was awesome.
    The tour included “Ground Zero,” a place like no other place. Security is very heavy. Policemen patrolled the area. I approached the policemen and I thanked them for their service. I proudly told them I was from Cynthiana, Ky. where I served as Mayor for eight years.

  • Election is one for the ages

    To the editor:
    The November elections are no doubt the most important of my lifetime. I am quite concerned about the weakness of our economy, the lack of optimism in the job market, the government’s runaway spending of money that we do not have, and the creep of socialism.
    As a Christian, I feel that there are even greater issues than these, however. The media calls them “social issues.”

  • ‘Important things’ are happening on the Hilltop campus for LVC

    The Licking Valley Campus is not quite 25 years old and we might think it a bit presumptuous to even think of us in terms of “history.”  Perhaps it would be more sensible to think of Licking Valley Campus as one stop on an educational continuum in this area.
    Sometimes a natural development of circumstances coincides with a time and place and important things happen.

  • TEA Party

    To the editor:
    The Harrison County Tea Party does not endorse political candidates. We profess adherance to the constitution smaller government, fiscal responsibility and lower taxes. The following candidates do endorse the principles of the Tea Party: Bryan Lutz, Andy Barr, Thomas Massie and Mitt Romney.

    Jim Pinson
    President Harrison Co.

  • Vote Bryan Lutz 78th Dist. State Representative

    To the editor:
    This election may be our last chance to take back our country, more specifically our state. We continue to see our state’s economy spiral downward while the adjoining states begin to recover. I watch as our legislature continues to stagnate over important reforms. We hear a lot of talk of reform but see no action.  
    We cannot afford to follow this path any longer.     

  • What's wrong with America

    To the editor:
    I am worried about the state of our nation. I am fearful for my children’s future. Every day ‘pop culture’ mocks our country’s history and the values America was founded on. News organizations, ‘think tanks’ and the ivory towers of America’s universities are asking ‘is the constitution still relevant?’ Why is this happening? It is a leadership problem.

  • Busy community is a successful one

    I’m excited for Cynthiana and Harrison County.
    There are some good things happening here that are moving us along.
    I hear the negative comments. I know we need industry and we need jobs more than anything else, but to paraphrase my grandmother, sometimes you can make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.
    We’re not going to solve world hunger here, but we can certainly take pride in the good things that are happening.
