  • Responding to Yates

    In last week’s edition, Joseph Yates penned an opinion page response to Melissa Blankenship’s column of Nov. 4, 2015 regarding gun control laws and mental health.  

  • Judge's farewell
  • Elected officials should listen to the people

    At the Jan. 19 fiscal court meeting, the alcohol sales ordinance first reading was presented. Included in the ordinance were the times and days of the week that package liquor/beer could be sold. This included Sunday from 1 to 10 p.m. 

  • Letters to the Editor, Jan. 13, 2016

    Recognizing the work of the school boards

  • Retirees to rally

    As members of the General Assembly return to Frankfort for the 2016 Regular Session, they will find themselves facing a multitude of challenges, one of the more critical being pension funding.  Legislative action in the 2013 Regular Session provided the framework for funding the plans managed by the Kentucky Retirement Systems (KRS).  Public employee (and teacher) pensions will require tens of millions of new dollars in the budget simply to stem the erosion of funding levels.  

  • Right place, right time, wrong attitude

    A recent voters’ decision allowing Henry County  “wet” status was a countywide progressive movement mandating county leadership to take another look at our economic development policies and attitude.  The current negative attitude has guided Henry County to higher taxes, depleting savings and impaired services.

  • Disappointed with comments

    I am extremely disappointed by the comments made by our judge-executive in the article about the alcohol vote from the Dec. 23rd edition of the Local.

  • Stumbo's comments 'shameful'

    Stumbo’s comments ‘shameful’

    Throughout the campaign, and in his inaugural address, Gov. Matt Bevin has shared he wants a fresh start for Kentucky. He has said he wants to move beyond partisan politics. Over the past few weeks, Gov. Bevin has made great appointments for his cabinet secretaries. The latest is Rep. John Tilley, who happens to be a Democrat, as the next Justice and Public Safety Cabinet secretary. Tilley had served as the House Judiciary Committee chairman.

  • School security

    I would like to commend the Eminence school system for their security measures.

    At the end of school, my son’s last class is at the old DeliPlus complex. On rainy days, I will stop over there and drop off his umbrella.

    The fact that just about everybody knows who I am didn’t matter — they kept the doors locked until I left.
