Today's Opinions

  • Church: A place for all sinners

    On the way home from church last week I heard a radio spot.

    One guy tells another guy about his neighbor who’s always hard on his son. They’ll be out playing ball in the yard and the dad will constantly tell his son, “You’ll never be a ball player if you keep messing up like that.”

    Then the guy says, “Get this — on Sunday mornings the whole family gets in the car and goes to church.”

    His friend asks, “How do you know they’re going to church?”

  • Food Pantry thanks community for generous donations

    To the editor:

    This letter is to all of the community who have asked about the Food Pantry and want to know our needs. This summer, the fresh produce helped tremendously, but the giving of food and money was lower than usual, but God has blessed us and we have been able to help many.

    This letter is also a thank you to all who have given so generously. Bullard, 3M, St. Edward school, Harrison County High School, the library and many more in the last few weeks had food drives and these are so appreciated.

  • Slade is a must have for Cynthiana City Commission

    To the editor:

  • As mayor, Mattmiller will continue city’s improvements

    To the editor:

    Isn’t it nice to see the new spirit that our little town is assuming? Everything seems brighter in town these days, from cleaner streets and kept yards to continuous progress at the park. We have gained a nice new bounce in our step and it seems that we are feeling a little good about ourselves right now. And we should!

  • 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.
