Today's Opinions

  • Connersville members were angels during finals

    To the editor:

    As a student at LVC, I can honestly say that finals week can be very hectic and stressful. All the reviewing, researching and writing makes for long days and late nights; no sooner do you finish one exam, another quickly approaches.

    Thanks to the Good Samaritans of Connersville Christian Church, my week was more enjoyable. They had volunteers present all week long displaying their support while aiding students and faculty with drinks and snacks.

  • State mandates leaving seniors high and dry

    To the editor:

    A special advisory commission of senior citizens was held in Frankfort on May 8-9, 2008.

    The Legislative Research Commission (LRC) is facing many problems due to mandates of Gov. Steve Beshear. The keynote speaker for this meeting was Commissioner Anderson, Department of Aging and Independent living, explaining results of a two to 12 percent reduction in monies and how this will affect not only her staff, but loss of monies so desperately needed for senior citizens centers.

  • Zoning rules should clarify when a farm is a business

    To the editor:

    My husband and I live on Ky. Hwy. 1743. We knew that, for various reasons, we would be adding an additional garage to the property. After doing some research we decided to have one built by Custom Wood. Adding an additional building meant getting a building permit, which we did.

  • Take care when criticizing those who need public help

    For the past several years I have been employed by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Department of Community Based Services, in Harrison County, as a Family Support Specialist.

    As a caseworker, I have witnessed heartbreak, hardship, tragedy and triumph to a degree I had not previously known.

    Women, suddenly widowed, consumed by grief, paralyzed by the fear, that tomorrow will come having no idea what theyll do when it does, because their husbands had always taken care of everything.

  • Editorial: Public loses experience in candidate withdrawals

    Two of Cynthianas city commissioners announced last week that they were withdrawing their bids for re-election.

    Their decisions will give Cynthiana voters two less viable candidates to vote for in May.

    Bill Doan and James Martin have endured much in their three terms of office. They have each served with two mayors who lead with very different styles.

    The commissioners weathered two terms with former Mayor Virgie Wells and two-thirds of their most recent term with Mayor Jim Brown.

  • Farmer's Market offers fresh choices to local consumers

    To the editor:

    In Harrison County there are many unknown or underused treasures. Among them is the Harrison County Farmer's Market.

    Started eight years ago by a group of farmers who wanted to provide you, the citizens of Harrison County, with produce that is much fresher than that which is trucked in from great distances, safer than that which is grown in foreign places with questionable and unregulated practices and healthier than that which has sat for days after harvest.

  • Recreation Task Force moving toward goals for Oddville park

    To the editor:

    The Recreation Task Force of Harrison County Tomorrow would like to thank the individuals and businesses of Harrison County who have so generously donated to the park on Oddville Avenue. With a total of $2,510 thus far, we are well on our way to purchasing picnic tables, benches, and trash receptacles. We encourage all to donate any amount you can for this project. Its never too late.

    To the editor:

    On Friday, May 9, 2008, the Harrison County Homemakers Day Celebration will be held on the courthouse square from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

    Our Homemakers are very talented. At the bake sale tent will be cakes, pies, candy, sweet breads, yeast breads, and rolls. All homemade by some of the best cooks in the county. At the Green Thumb Fair tent homemakers will be sharing cuttings from their gardens, house plants, bedding plants, and bulbs. Talk about green thumbs.
