  • Natural law

    To the editor:
    Under the guidance of our Creator, this universe was created and is guided by laws - natural laws.
    Consider the following: the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Apples fall from trees. Seeds are planted in the soil to grow and produce fruit. Fish swim in water. Birds fly in the sky. Man and animals were made, male and female, to multiply and increase to enjoy this world.

  • Invaluable asset to Harrison County

    To the editor:
    Two weeks ago Cynthiana and Harrison County lost an invaluable asset with the death of Harold Slade.

  • Equal Pay Day

    To the editor:
    On Tuesday, April 9, 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.

  • Love your children

    To the editor:
    Recently, I lost my youngest daughter, Tiffany Dawn Bradford Couch, to an apparent heart attack. She was the sweetest, happiest, most caring and most loving person I’ve ever known. She was a devoted wife and the most loving mother that anyone could imagine. She is missed so much by me, Randy, Zane, Zaryn and all of her family and many, many friends.

  • New laws added to help secure state retirement

    For the better part of the past year, there was no doubt what the biggest issue of the 2013 Regular Session would be: Stabilizing our public retirement systems for state and local government employees and their retirees.
    Initially, it seemed as if the House and Senate would not be able to find common ground as both sides took different approaches to solve the problem.  
    With the help of Gov. Beshear, however, leaders from both chambers were able to sit down and find a way that most members could support.
