  • Dare to Care event was much appreciated

    I attended the Dare to Care food giveaway at the fairgrounds last month. It was a very needed and appreciated event. I want to thank the Dare to Care for all their hard work. Also, the county Judge (Executive) John Logan Brent and the Family Resource Center employees Renata Ingram and Debbie Hartford. Thank everyone for this caring event.

  • Best half of basketball for Warriors

    For 20 minutes last Tuesday night, the Eminence Warriors played their best basketball this season. They ran their offense, controlled the ball, took open shots, pulled down boards and played solid defense to hang with Spencer County in the 30th District opener for both schools.

    But midway through the third quarter, in a turn of events, Spencer went on a spurt and never looked back as the Bears pulled out to a sizable lead and won 69-37. It improved their overall record to 11-2 and dropped Eminence to 1-8.

    The season’s first major snow has come and gone, leaving behind about three inches of white on the ground, and more than a few headaches.

  • Fire station situation is a crisis

    This city has a crisis on its hands. The fire station. At this time, it is inoperable. The fire department has one tanker truck in there, hoping the water the truck carries and needs doesn’t freeze. This information I got first hand from a volunteer firefighter.

    Here is a fact that everyone needs to grasp ... Campbellsburg needs the fire department. It is one of three vital services we need for our safety and our very lives. Police, fire and ambulance services are the ones that answer our calls for help. Remember, they can truly make a difference whether you live or die.
