    Each five years, the Agnes McDowell Trust Farm seeks to host the Harrison County Field Day, sponsored by the Harrison County Extension Service. We did such this last Tuesday night and it was a great success.

    A few weeks ago, the Democrat ran a picture, an article and a story of an accident that occurred on US Hwy. 36 E, explaining that an Amish buggy was hit by a vehicle causing damage to the buggy and loss of produce. No injury to occupants or horse. No charges were filed! The driver was not cited for driving too fast nor paying attention.
    It is my understanding that was the end of the story.

    To the school board,
    I’m writing in response to the board and Julie Asher raising school tax again. I think four percent is too much. I’m a widow on a fixed income. I wish I did draw or was able to work and make $100,000 a year. If you would stop wasting your funds you wouldn’t need to keep taking more of mine.
    I think the citizens should be allowed to vote on school taxes, like other counties do.

    I thank Jerry Adams and the organizers of the Cynthiana Rod Run for a truly family-friendly event that drew a crowd of grandparents, parents, and children around classic icons of American transportation.
    I commend them for an event that is Christian-friendly. There are many public events nowadays that are centered around alcohol and pop/rock performers. These events have a limited appeal.

    I’m writing this on behalf of the Colemansville Christian Church, of which I have been a life-long member:
    RESEARCH BACKGROUND:
    Shortly after Colemansville Church was founded in 1840, the church purchased adjoining land for use as a cemetery.  I have found the first burial recorded was in 1845.

    Shootings everywhere! Us older people tend to use the old phrase “ What’s this world coming to? “
    A question that is certainly as hard to answer today as it was back in the 1960’s in America. I certainly  have no answer unless it be a smart-alek one, like “It’s coming to judgement day”…but nobody likes a smart mouth.
    Not all shootings are bad. What our county is coming to on Aug. 31st is another shooting. Probably pretty much like the one last year, out on Mud Lick Pike.

    I would like to add my voice in support of the most helpful brief column by Rev. Earl Litman this past week. He called attention to things that we used to do that reminded us that we are both citizens and people of faith. He is correct that it has fallen out of fashion for us to recite both the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag and to the Christian flag.

    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.
