  • Innovation and motivation

    If you have watched the news recently you know the space industry has moved from the government to the private sector. With this shift, humanity has a tremendous opportunity to secure the survival and expand the potential of our species. But the companies working on space travel need your interest in the subject to have the market motivation to pursue it.

    Several companies such as SpaceX, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin have started testing and developing the next generation of spacecraft and have even sent supplies to the International Space Station.

  • Sheriff and others to be commended

    On Saturday, April 27, Henry County Sheriff Danny Cravens participated in the national Drug Take Back Day.

    He and several of his deputies volunteered their time to host the event, which encourages citizens to bring their unwanted or unused prescription medications to a specific location for safe disposal. This protects the homeowner in a number of ways, including theft prevention.

  • Is the Postal crisis real or manmade?

     

  • Emergency Workers are invaluable

    They may wear a variety of uniforms and have different areas of expertise, but one quality binds all first responders: They’re the ones who immediately run toward an emergency when the first impulse is to run away.
    Their invaluable contributions have been highlighted in recent weeks in the aftermath of the Boston bombings, the ricin-poisoned letters in Washington, D.C., and Mississippi and the explosion at a Texas fertilizer plant.

  • Letter: To Mr. Stephens and Eminence City Council

    I just wanted to thank yourself and the city council for their support of the planned CVS Pharmacy.  Too many times government gives into the wishes of a few at the cost of the many.  Many residents including myself cannot wait for the added convenience a CVS pharmacy will bring.  Currently I have to drive all the way to La Grange to fill a prescription because I am not happy with the service that the one pharmacy in Henry County provides.

  • Letter - Thank you for coverage

    Thank you for your coverage of the beginning of the re-beautification program at the Eminence Cemetery. This was made possible by many people who responded to letters and calls.

    The Eminence Cemetery Board was elected in 2011 with the express goal to address the needs of the cemetery.

  • Progress and Preservation
  • Thanks to optimists
  • We are going to miss you

     In the Oct. 3, 2012, Henry County Local Eminence Mayor Drane Stephens wrote an editorial stating:

    “It is very unusual for a city our size to only have one pharmacy. Consider Crestwood and Owenton. Both are smaller than Eminence and neither even have as much industry yet both support at least two pharmacies with Crestwood even supporting two large national chain stores. Competition does not kill businesses, it makes them stronger.”

  • Stop the mudslinging

    Dear Editor,

    I feel I need to respond to statements made by speakers at the Henry County Democrat Jefferson Jackson Day Dinner, as reported in the Henry County Local.

    Jerry Lundergan, father of Allison Lundergan Grimes, said “The Democratic Party of Kentucky has stood by and let the Republicans identify who we are.” No, y’all have done a pretty good job of that on your own. This summer’s Democratic National Convention showed everyone what the Democratic Party stands for.
