  • 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.

  • 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.

  • It’s time to open your eyes and prepare yourself for the May primary

    To the editor:
    If I were a bettin’ man, I’d be willing to bet that there are a lot of folks that don’t know there is a primary coming up in May. Everywhere I go, people look at my vehicle and all the bumper stickers and chalk markings on the rear window, and they usually say (with amazement), “Is there an election coming up?”
    I also get a lot of “I just don’t keep up with those things like I should.” And they shake their heads sadly.

  • Much-debated Medicaid issue closes with solution from Representatives

    FRANKFORT – After nearly two months’ worth of work, several weeks of intense debate and a long day on Thursday, the Kentucky House of Representatives finalized the legislative session’s most pressing issue: Closing a sizeable deficit in Medicaid.
    Our approach was a little different, but the end result accomplished what we wanted, which was to keep the solution within the healthcare program and not needlessly cut millions of dollars out of our classrooms, our local governments, our veteran services and dozens of other state agencies.
