  • City of Eminence has plenty to be proud of

    My name is Shawn Bright. I am an Eminence City Council member and I have tried to write a letter to the editor every so often to keep you up to date about city happenings. It has been one year since I was elected, so I thought it was a good time to give an overview on some of the things that happened in the last twelve months. First, I would like to say that being a city council member has been a very interesting job and it comes with a lot of responsibilities. Being an elected official is a life changing experience.

  • Letter to Heaven

    Another year has come and gone but my heart still feels very sad and lonely. On November 8 last year God called someone home very dearly to me. I know she's dancing with Jesus now and all her worries are gone. And I feel her preence with everyday. But it is still not the same seeing that smiling face and feeling the warmth of her touch. She was everything you would want from a very special lady. I hope she knows that my heart still lones for her every day. Life is not the same anymore but I know she would tell me Libby don't cry for me, stand up adn be srong and take care of yourself.

    For the members of the Cambpellsburg United Methodist Church patience over the last year and a half has been a virtue.

    On the afternoon of April 19, 2006, the entire town shook from a blast that leveled the church, reducing it to nothing but shattered stained glass windows and a pile of rubble. An underground gas line was inadvertently cut by utility workers using a back hoe. Fumes leaked into the sewer line which lead to the church and were then ignited by an unknown source creating the powerful explosion. No one was injured in the blast.

  • Christmas, the hardest day to work

    It's a proven fact: the hardest day to work, and least productive, is the last day of work before Christmas.

    This 'tis true.

    I can't get my mind off flying reindeer, Santa Claus, presents and potlucks. Like many others, I'm not in the mood to work my final day before my brief Holiday break. But here I am anyway, trying to clear my mind and type these words.
