Today's Opinions

  • Driving on winter roads

    So far the month of February has proven to be a very snowy month in Harrison County. We have been very fortunate this winter with snow amounts as compared to some states that have had far more than we are experiencing.

  • Berry resident dissatisfied with timing and quality of services

    To the editor:

    I think I speak for most of the residents in Berry.

    During our last two snowfalls, we have had nothing done to our roads. They had school, but some of us had to take our children or grandchildren to the post office and pick them up because the buses could not get up or down some of the streets. I think we have more commissioners than we have streets.

    During last year’s ice storm we were out of electric for two days before we were noticed on Mockingbird Lane. It was very able to see because no one had lights or street lights.

  • Top-notch care delivered at Harrison Memorial Hospital

    To the editor:

    I was a patient at Harrison Memorial Hospital on Jan. 13, 2010, through Jan. 18, 2010. I want to state that I had the most professional and caring nurses and doctors that I have ever had at any time in my life.

  • Faith that takes a licking

    I spent most of last Sunday afternoon in my recliner chair reading about an overweight, out of shape guy who decided to go to Peru and hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

    He did it because he wanted to impress a girl who was also going on the trip. When he learned how strenuous the trip would be, because he didn’t want to weenie out in front of the girl, he started working out.

    A few months ago I joined a new gym, which is challenging me physically. I’m not training for a hike or anything, just a healthier life.

  • Sports story was a ‘low-blow’ and ‘demoralized player’

    To the editor:

  • ‘Commissioners’ Corner’ no longer found in Democrat

    To the editor:

    During the past several months, I have submitted to the Cynthiana Democrat several articles that referenced different concerns and actions of the city commission. These articles were printed under the title of ‘Commissioners’ Corner.’ I believe that they were read with interest by a large part of our population.

    Unfortunately, I am unable to continue to submit these pieces. The Democrat has a policy that since I filed for the position of mayor, they could not print these accounts. It might give me an unfair advantage.

  • Slade has vision for town and Cynthiana City Commission

    To the editor:

  • Harrison County Schools in review...

    As I reflect on the progress of our school system over the last two years, I would like to take this time to highlight some of our successes and to list some of our challenges. I use the term “our” because the education of our children is our responsibility. Education is not only a job for the faculty, staff and administrators of this district. Education is the responsibility of all of us. This is true whether we are parents, siblings, neighbors, members of this community or one of the students being taught.
