  • Did the board make the right choice?

    Of course.  When I first moved my family to the Eminence School district in 1989, one of the most impressive things about Eminence was the small town, homey feeling which included a young superintendent with children in the school who had a vested interest in what happened in the building!  Now, I have grandchildren in Eminence Independent Schools and I look forward to what Buddy Berry brings to the table as superintendent.

  • Ladycats are NCKC champs!

    After beating Walton-Verona in an emotional finale to the North Central Kentucky Conference tournament last Wednesday night, the Henry County Ladycats jumped, cheered and gave high fives. They couldn’t keep it in, not after they were denied the claim as the top team in the conference the previous two seasons.

  • Response to FDA commentary

    The FDA’s job is to ensure the safety of the things marketed as food for our bodies, which they have done time and again with poisonous drugs, chemicals and food additives. By restricting sodium in processed foods they are not removing anything from the shelves or the restaurants. They are making sure the giant multinationals that profit from adding cheap additives, fillers and chemicals must make higher quality products. Is higher quality a bad thing? Obviously not.

  • Bob Cook responds to Judge-Executive John Logan Brent’s Letter to the Editor

    There is a fellow named John Logan Brent that sounds like a broken record, and people I speak to are not buying it. His statement, “I’ll not take the blame for the wording on a piece of paper that was created 20 years ago, long before I ever took office” has gotten old. Will he take the blame for something he was made aware of four years ago or how about five years ago?

    The “Sundown” Invitational was hosted by Oldham County High School on Thursday night, but because the school does not have a pole vault mat, that event was moved to North Oldham High School and switched to Wednesday night instead.
