  • Animal shelter needs our support

    To the editor:
    I visited the Flora Shropshire Animal Shelter on Tuesday for the first time. I arrived there at 8:30 a.m. and was greeted by Allen Fryman. Mr Fryman was very courteous and informative about the shelter. He said that the shelter stays full a lot of the time and has an 86 percent adoption rate.  That is awesome!
    At the front gate are cages for people to leave unwanted pets after hours. I can remember when many people would just leave them on county roads to find themselves a home or die.  Some of those ended up on our porch.   

  • Gas prices make no sense

    To the editor:
    As of today, I have missed receiving 18 days of the U.S.A. Today newspaper. I’ve called their 1-800-872-0001 almost everyday and talked too a lot of very polite people and been promised help, to no avail, I did check with my mail delivery person and the boss at our post office. According to both of them, 41031 has become a pariah. If you are a subscriber and not receiving a paper, please call the 800 number. If you are receiving a paper, may I buy your issues when you finish?

  • Library begins facility renovation in early June

    The Cynthiana-Harrison County Public Library is a place that is home to a variety of opportunities to citizens of all ages. In order to increase our space to more efficiently offer these services, the CHCPL Board of Trustees has authorized an expansion project of our existing structure. This project will begin in early June and continue for approximately nine months.
    During this time some changes will occur.

  • Thank you to the Fillies for Cancer Awareness game

    To the editor:
    I want to say “Thank you” to the Harrison County Fillies Softball team, Coach Christine Garnett, her staff and the awesome young ladies who play with so much heart. They recently played their game for Cancer Awareness, contributing to Hospice. I had the honor of being a part of this, sharing a special memory with my granddaughter Courtney Newsom, #25.
    The whole team presented me with a ball with all their names on it, all of those who participated hold a special place in my heart. Thanks for your support!

  • Reader endorses Steve Moses for Judge-Executive

    To the editor:
    I am writing in support of Stephen Moses for Judge Executive.
    Being a fairly new resident of Harrison County gives me a different perspective than someone who’s lived here for many years.  This is such a beautiful area with many assets and wonderful people living here.  This county is blessed compared to many in the country today.  But I do believe it needs someone in the leadership position that is looking to the future, not resting on past achievements.

  • Harsh winter leads to new needs at Food Pantry

    To the editor:
    I must apologize for being lax in this year for not keeping our community abreast of the status of the Food Pantry. The old saying “no news is good news” is true in this case.
    First, I want to thank each of you for making our 2013 Christmas Boxes a big success. We were able to make up 424 boxes. I have said it before and I say it again, this community amazes me.
