  • Get off the couch or share the blame

    The makeover of Eminence seems to be on everyone’s minds these days.

    This paper has provided a good deal of coverage on the demolition of the old buildings and the coming of the new.

    It is, as it should be, a big deal—these changes will drastically affect the appearance of the town as well as its economy. Some folks are fine with what’s going on. Some are not.

  • The sign and signs

    On a recent Monday morning, one of Donna’s friends stopped by the house to pick her up.  They were headed to Paducah for the annual quilt show held in that city.  I helped Donna load her luggage into her friend’s car and waved them off.
