Today's Opinions

  • Vote for America not a party

    Who did we vote for, or rather, what party did we vote for?
    I wrote this column prior to the general election results in an effort to remain non-biased, which all reporters should aspire to, especially while writing about politics.
    I am a registered Democrat, mainly because my pappaw was and I always tried to be just like him, but to say that I am a die-hard Democrat would be a misstatement.
    I recently read a few letters that were submitted supporting political parties instead of supporting political candidates.

  • Harrison County Cancer Coalition thanks

    To the editor:
    On behalf of the Harrison County Cancer Coalition, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the United Community Fund of Cynthiana/Harrison County. Without the generous support of the community fund, the coalition would not have been able to grow in its outreach and education in Harrison County.

  • United Community Fund support appreciated

    To the editor:
    I am writing in support of the United Community Fund. This fund is used for various local agencies in Harrison County only. I am an ombudsman for our Cynthiana Nursing Home residents. Our agency is funded in part by the United Community Fund insuring nursing home residents have someone looking in on them and speaking up on their behalf.
    We very much appreciate this as I’m sure every organization receiving this help appreciates it. The United Community Fund needs and deserves all our support.

  • Kill what you need, not all you see

    To the editor:
    Kentucky just had the early blackpower deer season and I have heard something disturbing.

  • Thanks for your support

    To the editor:
    It begins in July; spending ten hour days learning drill, practicing music, setting formations, feeling the sweltering heat rising from the asphalt in the high school parking lot. Watching as practices begin and end for others while these kids are still pushing through, from early morning until after dusk.  It will soon be drawing to a close in the blistering wind and freezing rain. It takes time, dedication, and commitment. I am talking about Marching Band and Harrison County High School has a rich tradition in this arena.  

  • Reader input needed in special projects

    It’s that time of year again where I beg and plead for reader input! See, I’m on my knees now.
    We have several projects in the works and each needs reader-involvement.
    The first and most immediate call is for recipes from local cooks for the annual Gift Guide.
    I’ve been to enough pot lucks to know there are some amazing cooks in Harrison County. If yours is not a super, double-secret, under-lock-and-key recipe, share it with other readers.

  • Keep Berry post office open

    To the editor:
    This letter concerns only those persons in the 41003 Zip Code area.
    You received a letter just this past week from a Bob Redden at 1591 Dalton Ave., Cincinnati, Ohio 45234-8992. This letter is from the United States Postal Service. It is a very important survey concerning the service options the Postal Service is offering to the patrons in the 41003 area served by the Berry, Ky. Post Office.

  • Bill Adkins for Congress
