• David needs your help! And so does Mona

    Do you remember the story of David in the Bible?  He held a slingshot to fight off Goliath.
    Well, I feel like David as I have been issued a challenge with Bullitt and Shelby Counties.  We are having a competition: who can walk the most steps on Sept. 29, in simultaneous walks in our counties. I feel like David as both counties are much bigger than we.  However, even if we are small we are mighty and we can win.

  • Obamacare takes away our freedom and control

    It was very disappointing to read Mr. Yates’ scathing criticism of Congressman Geoff Davis who has served this district with diligence for many years. As is often the case, the words and the tone of Mr. Yates’ letter reflected more negatively on him rather than Mr. Davis.

    We thank Congressman Davis for his many years of service. We have appreciated his commitment in representing us and in keeping us informed of the legislative issues in Washington. We wish him and his family well, particularly since he had to resign so abruptly due to urgent family issues.

  • Led to serve

    Saturday I announced my candidacy for the Eminence City Council.

    After prayer, speaking with my wife, and seeking the counsel of friends, I feel lead to offer my experience to serve the people of Eminence.

  • Thank you for Eminence Day

  • Embraced care by the informed

    Mitch McConnell is terrified of the Affordable Care Law. He knows that once people become informed about the law and its effects, they will embrace it and appreciate it the way they appreciate Social Security and Medicare. When this happens, Republicans and their distorting voices will fade into the background and be ignored. Health insurance companies will be prohibited from continuing their fiendish betrayal of sick Americans and dumping the cost of treating the uninsured on taxpayers and insurance premium payers, and American healthcare will improve and become cheaper.

  • Emergency Responders thanked

    Dr. Wintson Yap and the staff of the Bedford Family Practice would like to recognize the men and women of the Bedford Fire Department and Ambulance Service, Milton Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department, Campbellsburg Fire and Rescue Department, Trimble County Sheriff’s Department and the Kentucky State Police for their quick response to a fire that destroyed a house on July 18 next to our office.

    If it were not for the efforts of the brave men and women of these departments our office would have been destroyed by the fire.

  • Collective -Communism Mr. Yates?

    After reading Mr. Joe Yates’ letter (July 25), and as a resident of neighboring Shelby County now, as a result of redistricting, a member of the 4th Kentucky District (Represented by Geoff Davis), I felt the need to respond to Mr. Yates.

  • Signs, signs where are my signs?

    On Aug. 1-3, I was having a yard sale at 280 Vernon Street in Eminence. I have always put up signs and taken them down after my yard sale was over. When I went to town on Thursday, someone had taken all my yard sale signs down. This has never happened before, but whoever did it, all I can say is, thank you – you saved me time and gas. I have a permit for my yard sales.

  • Obamacare in response to Yates

    After carefully reading Mr. Yates letter concerning Obamacare, I feel compelled to make a few comments. While I do not profess to be an expert on this legislation, there are certain aspects that cause concern.

    There will be significant government bureaucracy created by its implementation.

    There will be significant costs associated with that bureaucracy.

    Those costs will be borne by taxpayers through a vast array of taxation and fees.

  • A letter of thanks

    Just a note to say thank you Henry County for all of the kind words and the gifts given to Pam and myself on our last night at the fair.

    Words cannot express how much it meant to both of us. Again,  thank you to all of our sponsors for continuing to say yes when asked to give a donation for the past 20 years.
