Today's Opinions

  • Sweet talking a reluctant farmhand

    My husband is always careful to lavish praise on me whenever I help him with a chore around our farm.  “You are one in a million!” he will rave if I assist the veterinarian on a day when he can’t be home. “I picked a peach when I picked you,” he coos as I hold up boards or wire while he repairs fence. “A guy’s lucky to have a gal like you,” I’ll hear, sweat dripping down my face, as we drive back after pulling the truck or some machine out of a ditch. “Super job, babe! Great work!”

  • Make a difference!

    With millions of dollars being spent on negativity, come spend your money where it really “Makes a Difference!”

    This Saturday, Oct. 25, is National Make a Difference Day.  Millions of people all over the Unites States will actually be making a real difference in the lives of others!

    Come join  Friends For Michael, Inc Spinal Cord Injury Organization as we make a difference all day, beginning at 8 a.m. at the site of the new Henry County Recreation and Services Park on Hwy 421 just north of New Castle, KY (1125 Campbellsburg Rd)  rain or shine!

  • Frankfort Perspective with Rick Rand

    If voter registration and a recent statewide poll are any indication, the upcoming election is one of the most anticipated in years in Kentucky.

    According to the Secretary of State’s office, there are a record 2.9 million voters registered to vote on Nov. 4th, an increase of nearly 50,000 from the May primary.  In 2004, the last presidential election year, 2.79 million Kentuckians were registered.

  • Candidate asks for your votes

    My name is Rochelle ‘Shelley” Summerlin.  I am a candidate for Eminence City Council.

    When I filed my candidacy papers, there was a question that asked, ‘How do you want your name to appear on the ballot.”  I wrote ‘Shelley’ Summerlin, which is the name on my cards and signs.  However, imagine my surprise when I saw the name on the ballot was Rochelle Summerlin.  I would like the voters to know that Rochelle and Shelley are the same person.

    I also want the voters to know why I am running.

  • Support Manda Gingrich

    Is there someone from Eminence who is running for president? You would think so with all this negative talk that’s going on. All this negative talk seems to be aimed at one certain person. Yet this person is the only one that I’ve talked to or heard say anything about what they will do if elected.

  • Enough is Enough

    I am truly enjoying the Henry County Local articles and letters to the editor regarding the campaign for the open city council seats in Eminence.  I am amused by the outrage and indignation being expressed by the currently seated council members, the supporters of the currently seated members, and a few “very” concerned citizens; in regard to one “very outspoken” candidate (who shall remain nameless).

  • Say no to misleading candidates

    When I read the letters to the editor in the Henry County Local last week, I was very impressed that Mr. (Howard) Roberts and Councilman (Shawn) Bright chose to shed the light on tactics used by one of this year’s candidates for the Eminence City Council. It is, in my opinion, that her tactics have proven the type of council member she would be. I personally believe that neither the people, nor the City of Eminence, can afford to have this type of leadership! The decisions that we make on election day are of the upmost importance.

  • Slinging Dirt

    Wasn’t enough dirt slung into the Eminence swimming pool recently?  Now, let’s check back with Paul Harvey for the rest of the real story.

    In a letter to the editor a former councilman finally confirmed that the city is indeed “planning” on building a new firehouse ... duh!
