    To the editor:
    Battle Grove Cemetery has served our community as a sacred burial ground for our loved ones for many years.
    My husband died on Nov. 18, 2017 and when I went to pay my opening and closing fees, I notices a gravel road behind the hospital that I has never seen before.
    While at the cemetery’s main office, I asked about that road and was told, “the rock road was laid from the cemetery to Harrison Memorial Hospital because emergency vehicles will be using this road to reach the hospital.”

    For the first time in 34 years Ernie and I will be alone on Christmas Eve.
    This year is going to be a little different. My son, Seth, who lives in Florida, will not be coming home for Christmas.
    Instead, he will be Christmassing with his girlfriend’s family and then coming to Kentucky in January for a friend’s wedding.
    So, we are planning to put off Christmas giving, for the most part, until January. That gives me a couple  more weeks to procrastinate on my shopping.

    To the editor:
    I have a few questions for the weather people.
    First of all, isn’t there always a 50 percent chance of rain. It will either rain or it won’t.
    Does it ever get hot enough in the summer to fry anything other than an egg?
    I would also like to know how hail was measured before golf balls were invented and what tornadoes sounded like before there were trains.
    In the wintertime, doesn’t the rest of the witch get cold too?
    Most of all, why does everyone worry so much how cold it is at the windshield factory?

    This will be my last column before Christmas Day, so I will jump the gun a little bit, but want to devote this space to Jolly Old Saint Nicholas
    I enjoyed taking pictures of all the little ones, and some not so little, who took advantage of the opportunities to sit on Santa’s lap and tell them whether they had been naughty or nice this past year, and what they really wanted for him to deliver to their homes on Christmas Eve.
    The wonderment in their eyes at seeing Santa Claus, up close and personal, was something to behold.

    To the editor:
    In my opinion, all actions of the Harrison County Fiscal Court, pertaining to the ‘solar power conglomerate’ has been intentionally and  hopelessly entangled through promises of money and should be declared null and void and the current ‘solar power conglomerate,’ summarily dismissed.
    Conglomerates are complex, virtually impossible to define organizations, full of educated experts, with the main purpose of using their expertise to make money for themselves.

  • Christmas... here again, and right on time

    The holiday season seems to come in the front door just as we push the last of the hoses and garden tools to the garage. And here it is again, right on time. We have the turkey and fixin’s behind us and now it’s time to settle in for the long, festive Christmas season.

    In just a few short weeks the news staff will be wrapping up 2017 with the top stories of the year.
    When former WCYN Coffee Break host Rick Chasteen was on the air, he and I liked to compare notes for the top stories of the year. Generally, we were pretty close.
    Admittedly, I had the upper hand because I had the entire year’s worth of Cynthiana Democrat’s to look back on. He had to do it by memory.
    That year in review will be published the first week in January.
