Letters

  • 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.

  • Todd McCall Memorial Shoot demonstrates good with guns

    To the editor:
    I grew up during the famous 1960’s in Harrison county...Coach Jock  Sutherland era at the high school. Not a lot of talk of gun laws back then, yet fried squirrel in our kitchen was proof enough that guns were readily available .
    In 1982 I left Kentucky for a job offer in Columbus Ohio, employment which  led me to St Louis, Baltimore, and Wichita Kansas. By the time I returned  home to Ky in 2011, squirrels seemed in short supply but guns were in the news  more than ever all across our land.

    On behalf of my family I want to express our appreciation for the warm reception we have received upon my recent decision to return as Head Football Coach at HCHS.
    The 25 years as Head coach from 1983-2007 were wonderful years as Patsy and I watched our children grow up and graduate from HCHS.
    It has also  been so gratifying to see the men that the former players who went through the football program have become. So many are successful in various walks of life and leaders in their communities.

    To the editor:
    Are politicians born with dual purpose mouths, or is this something that is acquired?
    I fantasize about any one running for office being required to wear a “truth belt.” It would be powered by a battery-run tasers that could automatically sense a lie or slanted truth, and fire immediately.
    What Lee Kendall pointed out in his column that old Mitch McConnell is doing is out of the playbook used by both sides. Can you imagine what the country would look like with the “truth belt?”  Probably pretty boring.

  • Mailbag

    To the editor:
    I am writing this letter to the SILENT MAJORITY of people who live in Harrison County.  It is time for us to stand and reject the regressive behavior of the Harrison County Planning and Zoning Commission. Once again they are trying to keep our county from growing.
    They have vted “no” to a zone change request. This “no” vote is intended to prevent a Dollar General Store from being built here. This sends a loud and clear message they are satisfied with a stagnant population and economy in our county.

  • Thanks from St. Edwards

    To the editor:
    Dear neighbors, sponsors and friends, the parishioners of Saint Edward Parish thank you for supporting our 69th annual Ice Cream Social. It was an outstanding success! As promised, all proceeds will benefit the operation of Saint Edward School.

  • Keep the goats away from the sheep, reader says

    To the editor:
    Lee Kendall’s last editorial was excellent, timely and thought provoking. To many people today just catch the headlines and do not read the body of the article. Sign of the times!
    Our country and the world are not the same as when we were school children. The Statue of Liberty and many other patriotic symbols are not relevant.
    If you have a boat that will hold 100 people, and you add several more hundred to that, the boat will sink. This is where we are now.

    To the editor:
    I am writing in response to Lee Kendall’s column last week. First of all, my blood relatives from decades ago probably came to Ellis Island to enter the United States. Personal information was gathered and a health check was done.
    They came with the purpose of being hard-working, viable tax-paying citizens. Any person, regardless of age, sex or nationality that enters this country and stays without a green card or proper paperwork is trespassing.
