Today's Opinions

  • Buena vista sixth grade class 1940

    Pictured above is the sixth grade class of 1940 at Buena Vista School. Pictured with his students is teacher Raymond Ward, top right.

  • Public service should not mean self-service

    On Monday morning, I turned in my notice to resign as news writer here at The Cynthiana Democrat.

    Next Friday, Nov. 21, will be my last day.

    It was a hard decision, I love this job and the people I’ve worked with over the past five (well, almost five) years. But as my downtown studio grows, I find balancing the two jobs impossible.

    The people of Cynthiana have responded well to my work and I’m not able to serve them to my best ability with things as they have been.

  • Mentor paves the way for new reporter

    It’s hard to sit at this desk and write and not think about the person who used to sit at this desk and write.

    I’ve been blessed to acquire many journalism mentors. And while I studied journalism at Western Kentucky University, most of my true education took place in the same room I now consider my office.

    While I’m so excited to work for the paper I called home for many summers and a winter, it’s also a little sad. My hire was only brought about because of Donald Richie’s resignation.

  • We're responsible for our own potty mouths

    Sitting at the table behind my husband and me, a young woman at a local restaurant got my attention by dropping loud F-bombs.

    I know some Christians would have cleared their throats and announced, “Young lady, as a Christian I find your language offensive.”

    However, I tend to think that’s not helpful and makes Christians look like fragile weenies.

  • Knipper's family thanks community

    To the editor,

    On behalf of David Knipper’s, children, family and friends, we would like to thank the community for the donations that we received to take care of his arrangements and burial.

    We would like to thank Ware Funeral Home for their time and patience with us.

    Also all the prayers and cards that we all received.

    You will never know how much we appreciate what was done for all of his family and friends.

    As his mother, I really appreciate the friendship and love that has been shown to me by the community and my close friends.

  • 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.
