    To the editor:
    I know we’re weary of politics and wish there weren’t all those ads on TV we have to mute. However, these next elections (mid-term and major) are far too important to ignore.
    Our planet has been attacked by the present administration, women continue to struggle for a place at the table to make decisions concerning their own bodies, teachers and public service workers have been Shanghaied by our Legislature and on and on.

    Last month a very special little girl named Molly answered the need to “feed the hungry.”
    The staff of the food pantry were in awe of the amount of food and monetary donations that was collected.
    Thank you very, very much to all in our community who donated food or money. Also to Molly with the help of her family for caring for others.
    God bless you all!

  • Supports Barr in November

    To the editor:
    I am a retired Lieutenant Colonel from the US Army and most importantly, a combat veteran.
    Soon, the voters of Kentucky Sixth District must elect a member of Congress. The incumbent, Congressman Andy Barr is the obvious and best choice based on many factors.
    First is his superb legislative record and support of numerous programs that benefit all of the sixth district but also the district’s veterans. And second is his character and lifestyle.

  • Too many ads on TV

    Over saturation

    To the editor:
    Can we get rid of the political ads or at least put time limitations on them. If I see another Andy Barr or Amy McGraph commercial, I’m donna call Vladimir Putin myself and ask his Russians to mettle.
    Thank God for DVR’s. I would much rather watch reruns of Scooby-Doo. I approve this message.

    The last day to submit candidate endorsements to be published in the Cynthiana Democrat will be Monday, Oct. 22, by 5 p.m. Letters received after that time will not be published.
    The last edition of the Cynthiana Democrat that will have endorsement letters published will be the Oct. 25 edition of the newspaper.
    As the 2018 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.

    To the editor:
    Since our tax money is being used to the tune of millions of dollars to mutilate the intersection of US 62 and Salem Pike, I am wondering if someone could find a couple of hundred dollars, and a weed eater, to clan up the mess, east of Smalley Branch Road. The dozen times a week I turn either onto Smalley Branch Road, or out of Smalley Branch Road, I put my life on the line. This problem has been raised often in the 21 years I’ve lived here, to no avail.

    Thank you,
    Ronald Dumm

  • 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.
