Today's Opinions

  • St. Edward hires new principal

    To the editor:

    I am happy to announce that St. Edward School has hired Sister of Notre Dame Mary Ruth Agnes Delaney as principal for the 2009-2010 academic year. Sister Ruth Agnes comes to Cynthiana with a distinguished career in education. She is excited about her new appointment and is eager to meet students and parents. I invite you to join us for our School Open House on Thursday, May 21 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. so you can meet Sr. Ruth Agnes.  

  • God knows our pain and has compassion for our suffering

    My daughter, Alison, is still laughing.

    Her 7-year-old daughter, Caroline, was out on the deck the other day hollering to her friends, “Yo! What up, homies?”

    Alison said she was both horrified and amused. “I don’t remember giving birth to a gangsta,” she said.

    I reminded her of the time we walked to her elementary school to see who her first grade teacher would be that year. The lists weren’t posted yet and she shook her head and said, “What a bummer.”

  • Honest ladies make sure purse is returned to rightful owner

    To the editor:

    Easter weekend this year proved to me that there are still good and honest people in this world. Late Saturday afternoon, April 11, I decided to go to Wal-Mart to get some lemon pie filling and crust for my niece’s birthday. I was informed it was her favorite pie. It also happens to be my husband’s favorite and Friday happened to be his birthday.

    There are three people I would like to thank; Doris, Sue and a lady whose name I do not know.

  • Rejection of the ‘Veterans Park’ name is a stab in the back to veterans

    To the editor:

    Recently the Director of Homeland Security spoke of a study that indicated our returning military personnel were candidates for enlistment into the ranks of right-wing terrorists.

    As if this were not bad enough, our local city council and fiscal court have some members that do not want to name the Handy Farm park “Veterans Park.”

    The community that researched the naming of the park was bounced around like a ping pong ball at an Olympic tournament.

    I understand there is to be a welcome home celebration in May for our troops.

  • The name ‘Veterans Park’ should be supported as Handy Farm park name

    To the editor,

    We were extremely disappointed to read about the county court’s apparent rejection of the name “Veterans Park” for the Handy Farm Park. The Harrison County Tomorrow Committee is really working hard to move our county forward.

    Mr. Copes said that the committee considered it their authority to name the park. More simply, the committee held a “name the park” contest. We wonder -- were the 1,459 people who voted from out of the county? Most certainly they represented Harrison County. So why the fuss from Mr. Copes?

  • April 28 is named ‘Equal Pay Day’ by Harrison County leaders

    To the editor:

    On March 6, 2008 the Paycheck Fairness Act was re-introduced in the 110th Congress by Senator Clinton (D-NY) and Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT). According to the latest U.S. Census Bureau data, women continue to receive unequal pay for the same work; on average women earn 81 cents for every dollar a man. It has still not been passed into law.

  • Skaters are being blamed for vandalism at park

    To the editor;

    This is in response to the April 2 front page article on vandalism at the River Road “skate park.” The reasons for removing the skate park equipment where listed as vandalism, littering, and foul language. I agree all of these things should not be happening in the park area at all.

  • ‘God is pleased when we try to reach out to one another’

    Truly, when God created the 24-hour day he did not factor in blogging.

    There’s got to be trillions of people who detail their every thought, word and deed and breakfast item (complete with photos) on their blog (“Web log,” an online diary of sorts).
