  • Support LeeAnn Armstrong

    It’s been a wonderful summer here in Eminence. The activities - Music on Main, DJ in the Park, movie night and even cruising - have been a perfect time to get out of the house and socialize for all ages.

    We are fortunate to have a city council that isn’t satisfied with just being a city, but wants to build community among the residents. The planning and execution of these activities deserves our gratitude and support.

    Staff writer/photographer

    New Eminence Independent Schools superintendent Buddy Berry is not afraid to get his hands dirty.

    At the September school board meeting Berry said he is making a clean-up of the schools a top priority. “It got to the point where we questioned whether it even could be cleaned or is it just an old building,” he said.

    Berry called in a professional cleaning company to evaluate the situation and was told the building could be put to rights.

  • Few states can match Kentucky’s automotive record

    When it comes to the automotive industry, few states can match Kentucky’s record.

    Our association with Henry Ford, for example, stretches back almost a century, when in 1912 he opened a sales and service office in Louisville.  A few years later, that city was producing 7,000 vehicles, and a few years after that it became home to the country’s first modern assembly plant.  Now, Louisville’s two production facilities – one that began in 1955 and the other in 1969 – are regularly among the company’s leaders.

    John Suter typically is low key in meetings of the Campbellsburg City Council. He certainly participates in discussions about the city’s decisions, but Monday night, he expressed his own frustration at the direction the city has taken

    When he spoke his mind Monday night, it was concise, and pointed, and seemed to sum up the council’s frustration.

    “The money is, it’s crazy. I just want to let you know, I’ve had a lot of people wanting to know who’s running the city and what’s going on. It’s an embarrassment to me. "
