Today's Opinions

  • Theft investigation

    To the editor:
    Someone walked into our home and stole our safe. Everything we had of value was in it. I called the Sheriff’s Office and Steve McCauley wrote up the report. He never came to our home to look for evidence. He just said if he finds anything he would call. You can’t investigate a crime without going to the crime scene.

  • Equal Pay Day

    To the editor:
    On Tuesday, April 12, thousands of women from across the United States will join in a national day of action against unfair pay called Equal Pay Day. April is symbolic of the point into the new year that a woman must work in order to earn the wages paid to a man in the previous year. On a national level, women are paid only 78 cents for every dollar a man is paid, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. So, because women earn less, we must work longer for the same pay.

  • Thanking those who make it all work

    Often when we say thank you... we usually forget some of the names or the smaller people who make accomplishments possible.
    If you recall an article written in the December 30, 2010 edition of the Cynthiana Democrat, there was a column written by our own Becky Barnes.
    The column was a tribute to the men and women who have served Harrison County and Cynthiana faithfully for their elected terms as well as the agencies that provide a service to the county and the city.

  • Sports columnist given a second opinion

    To the editor:
    Being a Harrison County sports fan and a longtime reader of The Cynthiana Democrat, I feel the need to comment on an article in the March 31st edition written as “Mike’s Minute”.

  • Maximize timber profits with information

    To the editor:
    Hello all you NIPFO’s out there. Yup, I’m speaking to the farmers. The acronym stands for Non Industrial Private Forest Owners. According to the UK Cooperative Extension Service, 89 percent of Kentucky’s timberland is owned by you.  
    Cutting timber is often a once in a lifetime project and so I thought a few pointers might help. When you decide to cut the timber find out what is in “your account” by calling the Bluegrass District Office in Frankfort.

  • Trash
  • Flora
  • County shows slight growth

    We’ve grown a little. Not by leaps and bounds mind you, but certainly a respectable increase.
    Since the 2000 Census where Harrison County recorded an 18,250 population, we’ve experienced a 3.27 percent rise to 18,846, according to statistics released this month.
