Today's Opinions

  • Thanks to all for benefit help

    We would like to thank each and everyone who attended, worked, or contributed in any way to the Marilyn Moore Benefit held on March 21. The benefit was a huge success. Once again, the people of this county opened their arms and hearts and proved why this is the best county in the world to live in.

  • Letter to a litterer

    On a beautiful spring morning as I was traveling down Bullitt Hill Road on my way to work, I was enjoying the bright green of the new landscape. Then, something caught my eye on the side of the road. Not wild flowers nor dogwood blossoms nor redbud sprigs, but a fresh, garish orange and white McDonalds bag! A few rolls of the wheels on the opposite side was a red Miller carton (empty for certain). Bright colors, but ugly trash!

  • City council should rethink opening pool

    It's time for the Eminence City Council to remove the rose-colored glasses and take a hard look at the feasibility of re-opening the city's pool.

    Officials initially believed the pool repairs could run the city as little as $12,000. That belief was hopelessly naive.

    As the pool committee and council looked a little deeper at cost estimates for the pool's repair, the price tag rose from $15,000-$30,000 to more than $150,000.

  • Making tsunamis

    The citizen's group "Making Waves" has gone beyond "waves" and "frog pond" to tsunami and "the Eminence Money Pit."

  • Thanks for help with Senior Project

    I wanted my senior project to mean something. I wanted it to somehow help the community, but I also wanted it to be different. I knew I wanted two things to come out of my project. That was to raise money for juvenile diabetes and to have the Kentucky State University Phi Beta Sigma to perform at our school. I also wanted to feed the volunteers that helped me with my project. I mailed out letters to the surrounding businesses asking for donations for a silent auction or to help feed the volunteers. I made flyers and put them up at different locations.

  • April is Donate Life Month

    Since April is recognized as Donate Life Month both nationally and here in Kentucky, I feel that this is a good time to thank the many Henry Countians who have supported organ and tissue donation at our drivers license counter by donating $1 in support of our Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks Trust for Life and by placing their name on the new Kentucky Organ Donor Registry.

  • The predictable 10 percent

    There is a law of human nature that says at least ten percent of the people in churches, families, clubs, or at work are always "negative" about plans, projects or ideas.

    They are the people who say, "Yeah, he can walk on water but that's because he can't swim."

    Resistance, rumor and ridicule are what they practice.

    But no project or plan, even if it's a positive plan for the children of our community, can be successful if we become distracted by the ten percent.

  • Concerning Bill Covington

    The first sentence in last week's Henry County Local concerning the judgment rendered against Bill Covington implies that he stole from Farmers Deposit Bank. I think most readers will interpret this to mean that he stole money for personal gain, for the benefit of his family or close friends. It is an extremely misleading statement. None, I repeat, none of the charges brought against Bill Covington charges him with the taking of or the manipulation of funds to benefit himself, family or close personal friends.
