    To the editor:
    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.

  • Special needs child left out

    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.

  • KEA is ‘bully on the playground’

    To the editor:
    This year, the big bully on the playground was the Kentucky Education  Association. They spent enormous amounts of the money they take from teachers  to try to elect Liberal Democrats across the state.
    By the way, that’s  taxpayer money they wasted. The KEA union officials and members of the Kentucky Democrat Party decided they wanted to wage war on the Republicans in Frankfort for trying to fix the  teacher pensions.

    Mrs. Claus and myself, along with our workforce of elves, are busily preparing for another Christmas.  The reindeer are being well-fed and are taking part in a fitness routine to get ready for that long and arduous trip we will take on Dec. 24.
    One thing we need from the fine folks in Cynthiana and Harrison County is some kind of heads-up, as to what all those little children would like for Christmas. I have been in contact with the fine people at the Cynthiana Democrat and they have agreed to forward me that information.

    There’s nothing complex about the gas prices in Harrison County. What’s going on is illegal collision and price fixing.
    Most businesses operate in an area of competitiveness. When everyone raises their rates at one time, with no individual cost increases, that’s price fixing and when they arrive at the rate based on individual verifications that’s collision.

    I want to give a heartfelt thank you to all of those that had any part in helping publish the “Honoring Our United States Armed Forces” salute that came our as a supplement to the Nov. 8, 2018 Cynthiana Democrat. For 12 years now our heroes have been honored by this tribute to them.
