    The Harrison County Sheriff’s Office and the Bluegrass Narcotic Task Force hosted law enforcement training at the Harrison County Fairgrounds. Law enforcement officers from the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office, Bourbon County Sheriff’s Office, Paris Police Department and the Kentucky State Police participated in a 40-hour Kentucky Law Enforcement Curriculum Course.
    Law enforcement officers received training in first aid, CPR, and updated tactics to conduct traffic stops and active shooter situations.

    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.

    “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.

    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.

    To the editor:
    I’m writing this letter in regards to your article on HCA on Feb. 28. The Gems are very successful. The girls work hard and win a lot of competitions. They are talented young ladies and flat out impressive to watch.
    This letter takes nothing away from these ladies. It’s wonderful that they have a place to work and achieve their dreams. ALL girls of all abilities who dream this should be allowed to try.

    Congratulations on the Cynthiana Democrat’s  much deserved awards! You all really do a great job!
    Harrison County really needs to heed Mr. Snapp’s article on the Area Technology Center.
    Do not feel bad about being conned on the Covington Catholic school thing that you mentioned in your most recent column, Mrs. Barnes.. I was a social worker, a parole officer and a cop. I still get taken in, even today.

    Thanks, Steve Snapp, for the informative column about the lack of funding for the Harrison County Area Technology Center. I was surprised to learn that the HCATC receives no money from our local tax dollars, even though our school system owns the building.
    When the school was new, I attended there from 1970-72. Our community is blessed to have the HCATC that trains and builds up a trade workforce, which is in high demand in our society today.

    Lee Kendall, I do not think we have to fear a Trump dictatorship being spawned by misuse of the emergency clause. It would take less than a week for someone to file in the 9th Federal Circuit Court for an injunction.
    I think Trump knows this and it is a bluff. If he really thought it would work, he would have done it first instead of going head-to-head with Chuck and Nancy.
    Trump has been too giddy on his success to make moves like this two years ago when he was on top. Too late now.
