Today's Opinions

  • INTRODUCING OUR HOMETOWN HEROES

    I held close to many assumptions before I became a reporter.

    Assumption #1: Police officers spend their time eating donuts and drinking coffee.

    Assumption #2: Firefighters pass the work day by  posing for calendar shoots and playing with Dalmatian dogs.

    Unfortunately, as a society, we have painted these pictures of law enforcement officials that are not true.

    Whenever anything bad happens in Cynthiana (think car accident, house fire, person trapped on a roof, etc.), I tend to see the same people.

  • Kudos to River Road Park board, director and employees

    To the editor:

    Harrison County Recreation Board of Directors and its Director Rick Chasteen, along with their employees of River Road Park, deserve recognition and commendation for their outstanding efforts in revitalizing the baseball fields and facility. Not many weeks ago, the park’s renovation was stricken with nature’s effects and it was doubtful that activities could begin in a timely manner. However, with hard work and dedication of park employees, and many Harrison County citizens, the youth baseball and softball programs were able to begin on time.

  • Saying thanks: It’s a good thing

    I will always believe that ‘thank you’ goes a long way.

    In my office at The Cynthiana Democrat, on the bulletin board beside my 2010 content improvement plan, a Harrison County school calendar and a piece of paper listing phone numbers for city commissioners, there’s an array of ‘thank you’ notes.

    I keep each one I receive.

    And on days when a little pick-me-up is much needed, I look no further than those cards that remind me why I do what I do.

  • Thorobreds’ Head Coach thanks community for support

    To the editor:

  • It’s no one’s business how goverment checks are spent

    To the editor:

  • What was God thinking when he created crazy moms?

    My friend Cristy and I often ponder the deep mysteries of the universe.

    For instance, “What was God thinking?” one of us will start, then say, “by putting trans fats and carbohydrates that turn into belly lard in foods that taste good?”

    One of our favorite ponderings involves mothers. Like, what was God thinking when he created crazy, neurotic mothers?

    She has one and I am one.

  • Donations being accepted for JMI week-long retreat

    To the editor:

    I am writing or behalf of Jordan’s Imani (Faith) Ministries, Inc. (JIM). Our organization is a non-profit designed to provide a safe environment for individuals and families to come together, to share, communicate, and to learn more about subjects that matter in their lives. To receive tools to better manage their lives with hope, faith, dignity and love by focusing on education and the renewing of their minds toward change.

  • Ms. Rita will long be remembered for her dedication, passion

    To the Editor:

    The Harrison County School System has lost a remarkable lady. Mrs. Rita Rogers was a classroom assistant at Northside Elementary School. Over the past 20 years, Mrs. Rogers has touched the lives of thousands of students that walked through the halls of the school. She also touched the lives of many fellow staff members, including mine.
