Today's Opinions

  • ‘Important things’ are happening on the Hilltop campus for LVC

    The Licking Valley Campus is not quite 25 years old and we might think it a bit presumptuous to even think of us in terms of “history.”  Perhaps it would be more sensible to think of Licking Valley Campus as one stop on an educational continuum in this area.
    Sometimes a natural development of circumstances coincides with a time and place and important things happen.

  • TEA Party

    To the editor:
    The Harrison County Tea Party does not endorse political candidates. We profess adherance to the constitution smaller government, fiscal responsibility and lower taxes. The following candidates do endorse the principles of the Tea Party: Bryan Lutz, Andy Barr, Thomas Massie and Mitt Romney.

    Jim Pinson
    President Harrison Co.

  • Vote Bryan Lutz 78th Dist. State Representative

    To the editor:
    This election may be our last chance to take back our country, more specifically our state. We continue to see our state’s economy spiral downward while the adjoining states begin to recover. I watch as our legislature continues to stagnate over important reforms. We hear a lot of talk of reform but see no action.  
    We cannot afford to follow this path any longer.     

  • What's wrong with America

    To the editor:
    I am worried about the state of our nation. I am fearful for my children’s future. Every day ‘pop culture’ mocks our country’s history and the values America was founded on. News organizations, ‘think tanks’ and the ivory towers of America’s universities are asking ‘is the constitution still relevant?’ Why is this happening? It is a leadership problem.

  • Busy community is a successful one

    I’m excited for Cynthiana and Harrison County.
    There are some good things happening here that are moving us along.
    I hear the negative comments. I know we need industry and we need jobs more than anything else, but to paraphrase my grandmother, sometimes you can make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.
    We’re not going to solve world hunger here, but we can certainly take pride in the good things that are happening.

  • Tea Party appreciates debate support

    To the editor:
    The Harrison County Tea Party thanks the more than 60 people that attended the debates held at the Extension Office on Sept. 30. This is a prime example of how a non-partisan organization that focuses on today’s issues can help provide information to the community for the upcoming Nov. 6 election. Special appreciation is extended to: candidates Tom McKee, Bryan Lutz, Bill Adkins, and Andy Barr; Moderator Amber Philpott; WCYN, Chris Winkle and Doug Miller; Ben Hyatt, Cynthiana Democrat; and the Harrison County Extension office.

  • Some things are left better off not posted

    Recently tragedy struck Harrison County when a 14-year-old girl took her life.
    While the details of the incident are not all that important at this time, thoughts and prayers go out to those friends and family members who will forever be burdened with the untimely loss.
    As for my main point of this week’s column, I would like to focus toward what I feel continues to be an ongoing issue among society.
    This week I unfortunately came across a rather lengthy and pointless discussion thread on Facebook.
