  • God’s gift of sex only for heterosexual married couples

    To the editor:

    The Bible provides God’s blueprint for marriage and for His good gift of sex in Genesis 2:24. The gift is only to be enjoyed within a marriage between a man and a woman.
    There are no exceptions suggested, such as homosexual partnerships.
    From Genesis on, the Bible praises the marriage of a man and a woman, but it speaks only negatively of homosexual behavior whenever it is mentioned.
    The Old Testament states, “Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable” (Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13).

  • Thanks to all who helped with KY Thunder tourney

    To the editor:
    KY Thunder baseball coaches, players, and parents would like to thank all the people involved this past weekend in making our tournament happen, including the 11 teams that participated. We had many wonderful compliments on our fields, concessions, cleanliness, bathrooms, umpires and the whole tournament in itself.

  • Supreme Court ruling robbed Americans of right to vote

    To the editor:
    I am appalled by the supreme court who took away our right of American people to “vote” on abortion of our little babies and gay marriages. “God” is going to punish someone - and it may be all America.
    Pray for our country.

  • Yank out welcome mat to hate groups by giving bridge a new name

    Not long ago, the Klu Klux Klan visited Cynthiana. Mayor James Smith, County Judge Executive Alex Barnett and others did the right thing and sent them packing. But they will be back; and they’ll keep coming back until our community’s “Welcome” mat is gone.
    The mat I am referring to is the memorial bridge named after John Hunt Morgan. General Morgan was a traitor to the United States of America.

  • The scary things in life are definitely worth taking a chance on

    I’ve come to find out­—through lots of experience on the subject—that it’s usually the things that you’re a little scared to do that lead to something great.
    It’s happened to me plenty of times at work; I’ll approach a stranger and find an amazing story.
    Or I’ll have to talk to someone about a difficult topic, and find out they’re happy to talk about it. And we all know difficult topics are usually important topics, and make for stories important to readers.
