  • Health care law will increase spending

    Just over a month ago, Americans watched with some apprehension as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was signed into law.  Time and again, taxpayers were promised that health care reform would slow the growth of health care costs for families, businesses and government.  Although the dust has barely settled, new revelations about the impact of the act suggest that, despite the promises, it will increase health care costs for individuals, businesses and taxpayers.

  • Board made an excellent choice

    I believe that the school board made an excellent choice. In my acquaintance with Buddy I have found him to be a sharp, polite, intelligent, caring person. He could have chosen a career in the construction industry, but decided to blaze his own trail of educating young people and helping them to be all they could be. The pupils are already excited and I feel that Buddy is up to the challenge to take EIS to the next step of excellence in education Once again I commend the school board for this excellent choice.

  • Berry cares about Eminence

    I have known Buddy Berry for the last seven years. Buddy is extremely intelligent and there is not a more dedicated, harder worker out there. Buddy will give 110 percent and I feel will be a success. I think Eminence made a wonderful choice for superintendent, because Buddy deeply cares about Eminence.
