  • The decency and humanity of Muslims

    It’s hard to dislike an entire group of people once you know a lot of them. When Latino farmworkers first began moving to Henry County, I was pleased to see people here making sure they were welcome. When hard-working, upstanding families are helping with your farm work and going to school with your children, you start to see them as people and not stereotypes. 

  • This is what democracy looks like

    Regardless of how you voted last November it’s impossible to deny our country is changing right before our eyes. It’s not an overstatement to say that the new administration will not only re-ignite the women’s movement, but galvanize our populous to seriously take a look at civil rights, human rights and religious tolerance.

    I’m motivated on a dozen levels after attending the Women’s March in DC.  

  • Asking for prayers and support

    At the latest quarterly dinner for the Henry County Help Center Jan. 19, Joe Durbin, founder and director of the food bank, announced that the doctors had found a mass on his lung.

    Tests are still being run, and we expect to know more soon.

    I would like to see each of you to send him a card or note to keep him positive — send it to 4844 North Main St., Eminence, Ky. 40019, but most of all, please pray for him.

  • Open invitation to Celebrate Recovery

    Open invitation to Celebrate Recovery

    On Oct. 4, 2016, Henry County offered new a recovery program for those that are struggling with addiction called Celebrate Recovery.  Discussions of starting a Celebrate Recovery program began in April of 2016 and many of you may have heard about this new program.  As someone involved with the program, I felt led to update the residence of Henry County regarding the successes.

  • Expressing gratitude

    Expressing gratitude

    Our community is blessed. We have two successful public school systems with incredibly engaged students in grades K through 12, and a team of professional teachers and administrators who strive daily to provide an excellent education to benefit this community for generations to come.

  • The birth of Christ

    The Birth of Christ

    For many years, First Presbyterian Church in Eminence has hosted a Candlelight Communion Service on Christmas Eve.  

    It’s a simple service — carols alternating with scripture readings and some special music — held in our beautifully decorated little church. Following the carols and readings, Communion is celebrated.  

  • Letters to the Editor, November 2, 2016

    Vote for Shroyer

    This will be an unusual request from a running candidate. Tom Shroyer has continuously shown strength in his ability and commitment to give back to this community.  Tom has an inner drive to ensure that he completes any endeavor for which he involves himself. He is most certainly one to cross his “T’s” and dot his “I’s” before retiring any project. This man embraces his weaknesses and makes them his strength.

  • Election from a Biblical view

    It’s time to look at this election from a biblical view, not from a party view or your own point of view.

    This view is from the only true and living God, the god of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who is the Lord Jesus Christ.

    If you are a truly committed Christian, listen to this warning. If we choose the wrong candidate, this country will fall. If you are not a Christian, read this letter and take it seriously.

  • Thank you for the honor, it's what we do every day

    On Thanksgiving Day, families across the country will come together around dining room tables. Many will share a bountiful feast and give thanks for many blessings. What better time than the month of November to also give thanks for our customers? 

  • Please vote

    Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are serving our military to preserve our way of life, and yet fewer and fewer of our citizens are participating in our democracy.

    Nov. 8 is General Election Day when Kentuckians will be selecting the President of the United States, United States Senator, United States House of Representatives and Kentucky’s General Assembly members.
