  • Former school board candidate says citizens can handle ranking of schools

    To the editor:

    When the message is upsetting to some folks, it is always easier to attack the messenger rather than the message. 

  • Board Chairman rejects candidate's statements

    To the editor:

    This letter is in response to the inflammatory opinions expressed by Mr. Bill Doan as printed in the Nov. 20th edition of the Democrat.  Mr. Doan made several statements concerning the Harrison County School District that are not only counter-productive but also demean our students, faculty, and staff.

  • Jesus' birthday brings hope to suffering

    Dear Editor,

    Centuries ago God promised through the prophets that He would give His Son. “Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call His name Immanuel” (Isaiah 7:14, KJV). The Messiah, who is the Son of the Living God, came into the world for one purpose only: to save souls through His atoning death on the cross,

  • Being spiritual doesn't mean being perfect

    When somebody says, “I hope you won’t take this the wrong way,” it’s safe to say that what follows is not something you’re eager to hear.

    That’s how a woman started a conversation with me during a women’s retreat where I was the speaker.

    When she said that we were in the kitchen at the retreat center, picking at leftover brownies. The brownie bit I had just swallowed sank like an anchor in my stomach and I froze.

  • Police should be called if car is hit

    To the editor,

    This is to the unknown woman who hit my 2007 blue Blazer Nov. 5, 2008 at Food Lion parking lot at 5 p.m.

    She wouldn’t and insisted I not call the police. “Oh! I can push out that bumper and it will be fine,” she said.

    Well I hope she can live with herself and what she did to my parked car.

    It’s costing me $1,000 to fix the damage she caused, and she said, “Oh I have insurance but we don’t need it.”

    Well I hope when, and if she reads this she can live with what she did to me.

  • North thanks fire department

    To the editor,

    This letter is to thank all the members of our local Cynthiana Fire Department for answering my 911 call so quickly Sunday night Nov. 23rd.

    They searched and searched my home to find what they said was methane gas order filling my basement and coming upstairs.

    They found where it was coming from behind a closed in wall. They advised me not to stay over nite in the home.

    By it being in the basement I chose to stay at home and open windows. And to stay with my two cats who came upstairs and warned me something was wrong in the family room.
