    To the editor:
    I want to say a big thank you to all the parents, guardians and friends who helped get children up early and bring them to Kids College. We had 110 students who were amazing.  So many times these days all we hear about are the negative things with children but the majority of the children were very well behaved and very involved with the learning. The halls were filled with giggles and chatter, sometimes it sounded like a beehive of activity.

    You hear that a lot these days. People say the law shouldn’t be involved in women’s reproductive decisions. My body, my choice. I agree women do have a choice. If we don’t want to get pregnant, we shouldn’t be having sex. Our choice.

    As most already know, the opiate epidemic has been worsening, each year claiming more lives than the last. What is less known by the general public is the problem with Methamphetamines has been growing over the last several years as well.

  • Cynthiana Saturdays to begin on June 1

    To the editor,
    On the first Saturday of each month let’s decide to spend the day in Cynthiana supporting our local businesses. This is not a monthly festival or event, but more of a mindset. Many people have invested in our town in recent years and let’s do our part by supporting these endeavors. Small businesses all through our county will appreciate your patronage.

  • Trust for Life organ donor program reaches milestone

    To the editor:
    Kentucky’s Organ Donor Registry has just reached a remarkable milestone: the number of organ, eye and tissue donation registrants residing in the Commonwealth has surpassed the two million mark. The announcement was made during a press conference in Lexington on May 13 by representatives of Trust for Life, the charitable arm of the Kentucky Association of Circuit Court Clerks, whose lifesaving mission for the past 27 years has been organ, eye and tissue donation education.

    To the editor:
    It’s not often we meet a politician who understands and actually cares about Kentucky. The moment I met Rocky Adkins, Democratic candidate for governor, I knew he was different. Rocky grew up on the left-hand fork of Middle Fork in rural Elliott County, the son of a school teacher and a grocery clerk at the local IGA.
    He learned the value of hard work growing up on his family farm and has been working for Kentucky families in the state  legislator for many years.

    To the editor:
    “Randy Watson rates HMH as No. 1.” My wife Jane Watson has been in HMH 13 days now. She has Ketoacidosis and many other medical issues.
    I rate HMH as No. 1 for medical treatments, nursing, business service, and the building itself (clean and modern).
    I visit Jane three times a day and have three good meals from the kitchen.
    When I’m at HMH I feel like I’m visiting “family” and not a hospital. The employees are cheerful, smiling, and very helpful.
    The VA Hospital could learn a lot from HMH!

    Thursday, March 28, 2019, I was talking via phone with a well regarded and respected retired school superintendent living out of state about the unbelievable action of the local Board of Education in not employing Jenny Lynn Varner as the new superintendent of Harrison County Schools.

    To the editor:
    This is written in response to last week’s letter to the editor alleging that special needs children are not welcome at HarriCyn Athletics and encouraging parents of special needs children to go elsewhere.
    While I do not know the mother or her child, I do know the owners and coaches of HCA and HCA Gems very well. My oldest daughter has cheered for the Gems for four years and my youngest two daughters are members of the preschool class mentioned in the letter.
