  • Let's get behind the courthouse refurbishing

    To the editor:

  • Just wanted to play ball

    To the editor:
    Last week, there was an article about women not being able to play church league basketball. I must say . . . it made a lot of people upset.

  • Women can defend our country but they can't play basketball?

    To the editor:
    I couldn’t help but to be amazed as I compared the headlines in the Democrat and the Lexington Herald.  One headline reads “U.S. To End Ban On Women In Combat”, the other “No Women Allowed, Says Recreation Board”.  Just so I understand this correctly, women can sign up to fight on the front lines for our country but they can’t sign up to play church league basketball in Harrison County?  

  • Be aware of those who support your rights

    Why has recreation no longer been a major priority in Harrison County?
    I can recall a time when I was younger, which was not long ago, when recreation was something that was highly thought of in our community.
    Before I begin, I would like to say that I do not blame our current recreation lull on any one person.
    Problems are typically not attributed to any one person.
    However, a recent incident concerning a woman being denied her right to participate in local sports tops the cake in a terrible tasting way.

  • 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.

    What would you like to see more of in your hometown newspaper?
    It’s a given that there will always be the records and obituaries, births and weddings, sports and church items. But what would make your Cynthiana Democrat a better read?
