  • Church, community join to help couple

    A concerned neighbor of an elderly couple bypassed her own needs and decided to step up to assist someone else in her community.

    The elderly couple was in desperate need of a new roof. Since they had limited funds and no means to pay for the job to be done, they were at the mercy of the weather.

    After several failed attempts to get the help her neighbors needed, she did not know where to turn next.

  • Troop 60 supports the efforts of the UCF

    To the editor:

    Boy Scout Troop 60 has been very pleased to receive United Community Funds. The troop has used this money to purchase tents and other camping equipment. It has also helped to provide uniforms for scouts, and fees for summer camp and other events when the parents have not been able to provide. Some of the money this year has been used to build a toilet at the camp by the county farm.

    The troop committee supports the United Community Fund and all the good work they are doing.

  • Disabled should get free spaying/neutering for pets

    To the editor:

    It’s been two weeks since my letter went to press regarding our local gas not dropping under $3 a gallon and guess what now its $2.75 here and $2.68 in Georgetown. However with gas going down, groceries are going up. Is there any end to this? It’s all politics and war time. But no one was in favor of war except G.W. Bush and he went after the wrong man and it cost us over 4,000 lives lost and still the culprit roams free.

  • White ribbons used for adoption recognition

    To the editor:

    November is Adoption Awareness month. In recognition of this unique way in which to become a family, white ribbons will be worn.

    I ask that all of you who are touched by adoption to please wear a white ribbon during the month of November. If you see someone wearing a white ribbon, please ask him/her how adoption has affected their life. If you are interested in learning more about adoption, call (800) 928-4303.

  • Vote with America in mind, not your political party

    To the editor:

    Vote how you honestly believe, not because you’re a Democrat or Republican as we often do.

    Do you believe in abortion? Then vote for Obama.

    Do you believe in gay marriage? Then vote for Obama.

    Do you believe in socialism? Then vote for Obama.

    Do you believe in higher taxes? Then vote for Obama.

    Do you really believe in spreading the wealth? Then vote for Obama.

    Do you believe that we need to depend less on foreign oil? Then vote for McCain.

  • Letter mischaracterized candidate’s methods

    To the editor:

    In last week’s paper Mr. Jones made the statement that Barbara Paul solicited about a dozen young boys at the Harrison and Pendleton County football game. Mrs. Paul did not solicit young boys at the game. I know this because I called parents for permission in support of Mrs. Paul days before the football game.

    My intentions were not to “use” our children, as stated in last week’s paper. My husband, son, niece and other adult friends wore shirts or hats supporting Mrs. Paul.

    Cynthiana City Commission

    To the editor:

    I’ve been looking over the field of candidates for city commissioner. And what a diverse list it is. This means my choices are as varied as the profile of our community itself. And that’s a good thing.

    Of course I’ll be casting my usual vote for the good old boys, they have mostly my interest and will represent my view at every commissioner’s meeting, I hope.
