Today's Opinions

  • Kuster will be fair, but firm as district judge, says Gann family

    To the editor:

    We are writing to endorse Judge Bill Kuster.

    We have known Bill and his family for several years now and we believe Bill is the best candidate for district judge.

  • Newberry is the right one for the district judge position

    To the editor:

    As Nov. 2, 2010 comes closer and we step up to the voting booth, what are you going to do? Vote the same name again? Or are you going to take the bull by the horns and vote for someone new, someone with a new look at our problems and do something about them?

    It’s time for the old guard to retire and give up that chair that they think has their name on it for the rest of their lives -  same old rules, same old policies, saying ‘this was how it had always been done, why change now?’ Does that sound familiar to you?

  • Sometimes it’s hip to be square

    Although I’m embarrassed to admit this, I’m a sucker for whatever’s cool or hip.

    When I was 12, I convinced my mom that I needed a pair of white go-go boots because the “Hulabaloo” dancers wore them on TV. (If you have to ask “What’s ‘Hulabalo?’” I don’t want to hear it.)

    Mom got them for me at the Stride Rite shoe store, but I never wore them. Hip and cool chicks could get away with wearing white go-go boots, but I never could, not at 12 or 22 or 32.

  • Help elect Lutz for magistrate

    To the editor:

    People say that as each election comes around, that this is the most important election ever. Well, we don’t know if that is true or not, but what we do know is that Harrison County has not developed like the surrounding counties have. Harrison County has had the same group of people in office and we need a change to lead us to a bright future. One leader of that generation is Missy Lutz, who is running for magistrate in District 4 - that is the Leesburg and Extension Office precincts. Please help us get her elected.

  • A GOOD IDEA

    For years, Harrison County residents have vocalized the desire for an indoor facility that would cater to Cynthiana’s recreational needs.

    It appears the possibility of that facility is closer now than ever before.

    Wedco health department employees are currently working on a matching $250,000 grant from the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky that would build a wellness/activity center at Flat Run Veterans Park.

  • Covering the FACTS

    When I think about gossip, I think about high school.

    It was always amazing to me how you could say something in the parking lot of HCHS, and whatever you said could somehow beat you into the school.

    Words travel faster than humans.

    But gossip isn’t only found in high school hallways, bathrooms, cafeterias and classrooms.

    People often ask me how I come to know about the stories I write.

    “Somebody tells me,” I always reply back.

  • Lutz would be an ‘outstanding leader’ as District 4 magistrate

    To the editor:

    I ran for the constable seat for my district this last primary season and I got to meet many people and I have to say that Harrison Countians are some of the best folk around. When I moved to this area, my family and I were welcomed with open arms. This county has a rich history and I would like to see that and it’s future continue to shine in Kentucky.

  • Large Tea Party response at Taste of Harrison County event

    To the editor:

    Harrison County was introduced to the Tea Party during the Taste of Harrison County and I personally was astonished by the overwhelming response. Thanks to all!
