Today's Opinions

  • Making Christmas special in Henry County

    Nestled in southeast Henry County in the village of Bethlehem is a treasure – the little Bethlehem post office. And yes, I am prejudiced, but perhaps less because I happen to live in Bethlehem than because of the hustle and bustle that I have experienced in big-city post offices, such as New York, Washington, Philadelphia, Baltimore and, most recently, Louisville.

  • Get your own house in order, first

    After reading the lead story in the Nov. 24 issue of the Henry County Local, regarding the Henry County Fiscal Court meeting, I am reminded of that old idiom about putting your own house in order before you start giving out advice.

    It was a brief, unintentional unveiling of our new platform. As the platform wasn’t supposed to debut until Dec. 4, the old website was put back up almost as soon as we noticed the faux pas.

    There’s no denying that our soon-to-be old website left quite a bit to be desired. In fact, we were more than a little embarrassed by it. It was not the professional product we wanted to deliver to you.

  • Donations needed for Sunrise Children’s Services

    Christmas is a time for joy, but for hundreds of Kentucky children who are victims of abuse and neglect, Christmas joy depends on the generosity of people like you.

    Sunrise Children’s Services provides care for over 500 of these children across Kentucky and we need your help in making their Christmas a little brighter this year. Your donation can help provide children and teens with a few simple toys, needed clothes, and other presents that they’ll get to open on Christmas morning.

  • Basketball has arrived

    When the Eminence High School football players were dropping like flies with all the late-season injuries, Eminence basketball coach Chris Nethery was clenching his teeth.

    Secretly, I was too.

    More than half of the football players finished the year injured, and with most of those players playing both sports, Nethery is left trying to put the pieces back together.

    It’s typical at a school the size of Eminence, but is worse this year. Nethery described the scene as the most injuries he has had to start a basketball season.
