Today's Opinions

  • A special thanks from the heart

    To the editor:
    I received my new heart in May 2011 and I’m now on my way to recovery.
    I want to specifically thank our local 911 dispatchers (234-7100 for non-emergency calls) for helping us the night I got the call to get to Louisville as soon as possible for my new heart. Since I had a limited time window to reach the hospital, the local dispatchers assisted in transferring a call to the Georgetown/Scott County dispatch for assistance.

  • Harrison Co. United Community Fund

    To the editor:
    The United Community Fund has been working in Cynthiana and Harrison County since 1972 to raise funds for local community needs such as assisting families in crisis, developing children, helping seniors and encouraging the health and well being of our community.  

  • Support David Williams for Senate President

    To the editor:
    I write in support of the gubernatorial candidacy of senate president David Williams. To those voters who consider themselves conservative, those who favor limited government, lower taxes, fewer rules and regulations, maximum economic and personal freedom, and maximum respect for the conscience of each individual person, I particularly address the following:

  • LVC’s Literati and our community

    By Ashley O’Brien, Guest writer
    High on a hill, above the Licking River* is a college truly making a wonderful name for itself.  I am a student at Maysville Community & Technical College’s Licking Valley Campus and am in my second semester. This semester, I wanted to get more involved with school.  
    I am the accompanist for the Campus Choir, which is directed by Bill Webber, but that wasn’t enough for me. I woke up one morning on fire for school. I started making plans of how I could do more, be involved, and make a difference.

  • “No spraying”

    To the editor:
    To quote Joni Mitchell, “Don’t it always seem to go/ya don’t know what ya got ‘til it is gone.” For example, we haven’t had water consistently here at my house for three weeks now, but I digress.

  • No more bailouts for privately owned businesses

    To the editor:
    I would like to take the time to publicly thank Magistrate Frank Henson. In an age where bailouts, handouts and stimulus packages are seemingly more common, Mr. Henson is a man who sees the bottom line. I agree that the county has absolutely no business funding a private business.

  • Stop the gas gouging

    To the editor:
    This past Wednesday I drove back to Cynthiana from the Ky. airport and happily noticed that the prices of gas were $3.49.9, $3.48.9 and $3.47.9 and at Shell in Alexandria it was $3.28.9 if you got your vehicle washed.
    Yesterday I went to town and every station I passed still had $3.75.9, the same price as it was over a week ago when we left.

  • A family of pen pals have first face-to-face

    Very seldom does a story walk in off the streets and into my office.
    However, that’s exactly what happened  last week when the busiest senior citizen of Harrison County, Charlie Tribble, brought Prue Manson from Timaru, New Zealand, by for a chat.
    Prue came to the states to make visits all around, but primary on her itinerary was visiting her mother’s pen pal, Beverly Steffe.
    Miss Steffe, a retired school teacher and sister-in-law of Charlie, had been pen pals with Prue’s mother, Heather Scott, since 1978.
