  • 19 Conner grads from HCHS

    To the editor:
    Recently I received a notice about my graduation class having a luncheon  sometime in October which got me to  thinking about the number of my Family  members who have graduated from or are currently attending HCHS.
    After  consulting with other relatives, we have compiled a list of 19 Conner Family  members which we feel may be the largest Family with HCHS representation.

  • Embarrassed by reception for Gov. Bevin

    To the editor:
    Cynthiana was the host to a town hall meeting by our Kentucky Governor on Friday, Sept. 14.  During this event, our community was on display providing communication to our State leaders and the business community.    We had a chance to promote our community while questioning and understanding the Governor’s plan for the State.

    To the editor:
    I‘m boycotting the gas stations in Cynthiana. Prices are consistently 20 to 40 cents per gallon higher than neighboring Georgetown and Paris.
     Greed is the only reason our prices are so much higher, and the people it hits hardest are those who do all their business in our community. The inflated prices particularly exploit our senior citizens and others who rarely drive out of the area.

    To the editor:
    Being a United States Air Force veteran and proud citizen of this great country I’m proud to see the symbol of our Democracy displayed everywhere I go.
    Our flag represents our veterans who have served, fought, or died protecting its very essence. It serves as a proud symbol for each and every one of our citizens. The white stripes symbolize purity and innocence, the red stripes symbolize hardiness and valor, and the blue stripes represent vigilance, perseverance and justice. All 50 stars are recognized.

  • Mailbag

    To the editor:
    Seemingly every week, Flora Shropshire Animal Shelter is at full capacity.  With Harrison County being a fairly large area, it isn’t surprising to  learn that a few stray dogs and cats are found on a regular basis.
    However,  the recent volume of animals dropped at the shelter is so high that some of  the animals are having to share crates and runs, thus creating never-ending  work for such a small staff.

    To the editor:
    It has been awhile since I have given you an update on the food pantry. I have always been honest with you and praised you for your giving of money, food and time and this time will be no different.
    The fall of each year is a time of kids going back to school which means parents spend their money for school supplies, clothes and other items needed and that cuts into their contributions and it also, for the same reason, brings out more clients to the food pantry.

    To the editor:
    I am writing concerning a picture in the Aug. 9 Cynthiana Democrat, of a group at the Lair Presbyterian Church rededication in 1946.
    I am the 98-year-old niece of two people in the picture.
    The lady in the middle chair is Cornelia Ammerman and the third person from the left, on the back row, is her brother, Clyde Ammeman. Cornelia played the piano and organ for the church.
    Both were life-long members and they lived on the Ammerman Farm on Edgewater Pike.
    I enjoyed seeing the pictures.

  • Candidate endorsements for the November general election

    As the Nov. 6, 2018, general election draws near, candidates will begin lining up their followers to write endorsement letters to the newspaper.
    We welcome those local letters. Local being the operative word here.
    We won’t accept letters of mass mailings. With e-mail so prevalent, it’s tougher to determine “mass mailings.” However, if someone sends a letter from Indianapolis endorsing one of our local hopefuls, it’s pretty obvious that it’s from a mailing list.

  • Kudos to Gruber and Boyd’s Station Project

    To the editor:
    I want to thank Jack Gruber, founder of Boyd’s Station Project 306.36 and Arden Barnes and Michael Swenson for their amazing presentation of the images of Harrison County last Saturday at the Rohs. The storytelling about each picture was very interesting.
    It is exciting to think this will be a yearly event to document our county and its residents and the impact it can have on our community. For those who missed this year, I encourage you to attend next year.

  • Slade endorses Coulson in State Rep. race

    To the editor:
    For many years I have worked with and served along side great people of differing political views. On the local level we have to make decisions based on the greater good and not along party lines. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if we could see this at the state level?  There is a candidate running for State Representative in our district who has the heart of a servant and isn’t your typical politician. This man is Greg Coulson.
