  • Thank you to a member of the Eminence City Council

    I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to one of the Eminence City Council members.

Quit pulling my leg!” The next most common response is the, “oh, I guess you are into the Olympics huh?” Finally there is a more recent response that I hadn’t heard before: “missionary work, huh?”
