  • Santa letters bring back holiday memories

    I have, for years, enjoyed typing up children's letters to Santa each year.

    That particular task manages to somehow be one of the hardest and funniest things we do in community newspapers.

    Inevitably, there are a few letters written by the younger kids that we cannot read or interpret, no matter how many folks we show the letter to. That is, however, part of their charm - the jumble of letters that makes perfect sense to the writer, but leaves us scratching our heads.

  • Trapped no more ... Boyer Lane to get relief

    General Manager

    Residents along Boyer Lane in Campbellsburg may, after many years, no longer be trapped by stopped trains.

    The road intersects with a CSX rail line, and at times throughout the years, trains will stop on the tracks, leaving many residents in the twelve homes on the road trapped with no way out.

    During last week's Fiscal Court meeting, Henry County Judge Executive John Logan Brent informed the court that after several meetings with CSX about Boyer Lane, residents would finally get some relief.

    Fonda Powell's eyes speak volumes; more than any words ever could. They are a striking shade of light blue, but are softened from years of grieving. Her eyes have a distinctive type of sadness about them; one that could only be brought on by the loss of a child.

    Powell remembers the night clearly. It was Nov. 20, 1993. Her daughter Angela Oakley - just 20 years old was married and had two young boys - recently bought a car with money she had earned from waiting tables.

  • 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.
