Today's Opinions

  • Reader endorses Steve Moses for Judge-Executive

    To the editor:
    I am writing in support of Stephen Moses for Judge Executive.
    Being a fairly new resident of Harrison County gives me a different perspective than someone who’s lived here for many years.  This is such a beautiful area with many assets and wonderful people living here.  This county is blessed compared to many in the country today.  But I do believe it needs someone in the leadership position that is looking to the future, not resting on past achievements.

  • Harsh winter leads to new needs at Food Pantry

    To the editor:
    I must apologize for being lax in this year for not keeping our community abreast of the status of the Food Pantry. The old saying “no news is good news” is true in this case.
    First, I want to thank each of you for making our 2013 Christmas Boxes a big success. We were able to make up 424 boxes. I have said it before and I say it again, this community amazes me.

  • Reader endorses incumbents Barnett, Hampton, Furnish and Harney

    To the editor:
    If it’s not broken, don’t fix it. this saying applies to several of the local Democratic primary races this year.

  • Endorsing Linda Furnish for Clerk

    To the editor:

  • What’s so “pure” about obsolete?

    So last weekend, I drove eight hours north to watch movies at the Drive-In.
    The Riverside Drive-In in Vandergrift, Penn. sponsors two film festivals a year: The April Ghoul’s Monster Rama and the Drive-In Super Monster-Rama, which happens in September.

  • Reader endorses John Green for magistrate

    To the editor:
    This upcoming election day affords the opportunity to cast votes for a lineup of new candidates as well as the incumbents for the various offices. By giving some of the deserving new candidates a chance to express their views and be instrumental in shaping the policies for Harrison County, it will encourage others in the community to step forward and be a part of positive change. One forward looking young man I endorse is John Green.

  • Aviation Day was a great event

    To the editor:
    We were very pleased with the 200 plus people that showed up for Aviation Day on Saturday, April 26 at the Cynthiana-Harrison County Airport. There was a lot to see with 24 planes, one helicopter, 30 plus classic cars and 20 motorcycles.
    I want to thank everyone that helped make this event a success.
    Thank you all for a great event and hope to see you in June for Young Eagles.

  • Humane Society often pays full vet bill

    Dear Editor,
    Thank you for writing about the Humane Society last week. To clarify one issue about our spay/neuter program, we pay the entire vet bill for an animal’s surgery. People have the option to donate any portion of that cost from $1 and up. We have been pleased to see the number of people contributing to “pay it forward,” to help keep our program running and allowing us to spay/neuter more pets.
