Today's Opinions

  • Signs posted on poles are dangerous

    As the weather gets warmer, people are starting to have yard sales and/or garage sales. What these people do not realize is that they are violating a Cynthiana city ordinance when they nail or staple a paper or cardboard sign on an utility pole. You can drive around town and see the cluster of signs hanging from utility poles at every major intersection. These are a real eyesore, especially to people who pass through this town. What people do not think about is the utility worker who might have to climb that pole.

  • City and county must look toward future

    To the editor:

    I look around our town and see a community full of hope and desire. Growing up here as a young man, I saw a lot of things come and go and the fastest thing leaving this city and county are the jobs. Remembering back on some that are now history... Webbers Sausage, Grede Perm Cast, Cleveland Twist and Drill, Ladish, Concept Packaging, Augur Scope and there are many others.

  • Quality health care is found locally at HMH

    To the editor:

  • Drug Court graduate has ‘new lease on life’

    To the editor:

    Recently I was granted Drug Court instead of incarceration by the court system.

    Drug Court is an alternative program for alcohol and drug offenders that have committed crimes to feed their addiction.

    This program is a recovery program that I feel is set up to help you free your addiction and better yourself, as well as become an asset to yourself, your family and your community.

  • HCHS student thanks teachers and program

    To the editor:

    My name is Elizabeth Barron. I am writing on behalf of my teacher. His name is Jim Fuller. I would like for all of you to know that if there is a teacher who needs to be noticed, he would be the one. This teacher is not just any teacher. Mr. Fuller goes out of his way, and then some to help his students.

  • Coordinator thanks all who made Freedom Salute a success

    To the editor:

    I would like to say a huge thank you to all of those that helped in any way to make the Freedom Salute for the soldiers of Co. C 201st EN a success on May 16.

    I can not begin to name all the individuals, businesses or organizations, which made monetary, and food donations, as well as those who volunteered that weekend. This event couldn’t have occurred without everyone’s support.

  • Extreme Makeover home was a gift and shouldn’t be sold

    To the editor:

    The entire Hassel family story is a disgrace and humiliation to this community.

    This community stood tall and proud when Ty Pennington and his crew came to Cynthiana and put us on national television, along with our local Sosbe Construction and all other local contractors who so graciously gave of their time to help this family with medical problems and medical bills and now they want to bail.

    Well, first, let me say, you’ll be lucky to get the price you’re asking because of the location of the house in Sunrise.

  • Hassall family is more important to our community than a house

    To the editor:

    I have never written to the editor before, but quite frankly, I’ve grown impatient with my own silence. There was a letter sent to the Democrat regarding the Extreme Makeover Home owned by the Hassalls. I have to admit, I was a bit perplexed at the attack on this family for their decision to sell it. Did I miss something or isn’t this their home? This isn’t Harrison County’s home, although the county could buy it if they so choose.
