  • Licking Valley Campus is on the move

    Maysville Community and Technical College has been creating opportunities and fueling the dreams of many in Cynthiana for 20 years. During that 20-year span, there have been numerous milestones for the college. The first extension of the college was opened in 1989 in a rented space. In 2002, a new building was built to accommodate the expanding number of students. In 2007, enrollment topped 3,500 for the college. In the fall term of 2009 MCTC added to their facilities by opening another extension in Cynthiana for the Health Science students.

  • 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
