• Donations will help

    I applaud the project to provide community opportunities to help with the upkeep on the Eminence cemetery.  It is one of the ways that individuals can get involved to make sure that the cemeteries in the country are well maintained.

  • Youth sets example

    Hats off to a 14-year-old who single-handedly planned, acquired, organized and carried off a fun and festive evening for Light Up Pleasureville.

    Many of us adults could learn from this young man’s interest, zeal and determination for the betterment of our community. How extraordinary! Our out-of-town guests were in awe that it takes a 14-year-old to set the example!

    And a big thank you to Santa (Tom Smith)! You certainly impressed my granddaughters with your wisdom!

  • Give to the less fortunate

    Enjoy your Christmas gifts.

    Christmas is the most wonderful day of the year because it celebrates the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ, but some of us think of it as a time to receive gifts. I would like to ask you a question: do you have a home, clothes to wear, food to eat, a job, and a family and friends that love you?

    If you can answer with a yes, then you are enjoying the most precious gifts that anyone could ask for, so what else would anyone need if they have all those things?

  • What is that? What do you do?

    These are two questions I have heard often during my three years’ membership in the Eminence Education Foundation.     Actually, many natives of Eminence are not familiar with the work of the Education Foundation.

  • Preservation for cemetery reflects respect

    The national resurgence of interest in the Lincoln era, the movie Lincoln, the book Killing Lincoln seems to coincide with the recent activity to renew our own Eminence Cemetery, which is also a Lincoln era creation.

    The Kentucky Legislature charted the Eminence Cemetery in 1860. The first burial was in 1864. There are surely many incidents in the long history of the cemetery that are entwined in our state and national history.

  • Good news for state budgets

    As the debate in Washington rages over what the federal government should do to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff, there is some good news when it comes to state government budgets: Most are finally seeing their bottom lines stabilizing.

  • A letter of thanks

    Homestead Nursing Center wants to thank all the many volunteers, individuals and businesses who donated their time and prizes for our Fall Festival on Oct. 26. The Festival’s success would not have been possible without them. Just as important, we want to thank the community for coming out and supporting our residents through your purchases and participation. Again, on behalf of Homestead’s residents, we want to thank you for making the 2012 Homestead Fall Festival such a success.

  • Thanks to the Smoke Doctors

    The Henry Co. Family Resource Center would like to thank the Smoke Doctors for the canned food drive that was held on Nov. 17.  Through their generous spirit of providing individuals with a free meal for food donations, we collected 767 cans of food and $108 which will be used to help fill holiday baskets and restock the FRC shelves.  We would also like to thank the community for coming out to support this great cause.

  • Looking ahead to the General Assembly

    Each fall, not long before Thanksgiving, the General Assembly’s administrative staff offers an in-depth look at some of the issues it believes could be debated during the legislative session that begins each January.

    The report comes from the 15 main committees that vote on legislation, and while no one can predict what ultimately will become law, this analysis gives us a better idea of what may need to be addressed.
