  • Help needed for Veterans Day assembly

    I hate asking anyone for anything — especially donations. But we have an idea for this year’s Veterans Day Assembly at the high school, and Junior ROTC can’t go it alone — we just don’t have the money.  Please read this letter and let us know if you can help make a veteran’s experience even more rewarding this year.

  • A life recalled through a garage sale

    Yesterday was gorgeous — sunny and pleasantly cool — the kind of day that evokes a good mood. As I headed toward Louisville to do some errands, I saw a sign for a garage sale next to a driveway beside a lawn overflowing with boxes and tables strewn with books, pots, pans, dishes — all manner of household items and personal belongings. I will admit it. I love garage sales, although I don’t seek them out. I prefer simply to stop when I happen upon one during my various trips.

  • Reader agrees with Norm

    I agree with Norm’s ad in the Henry County Local. Shame on you. Do you know Bill Covington? Have you ever interviewed him? How much research did you do on that abysmal article? I’ve been around here since 1962, so I knew and did business with Bill Covington at Farmer’s Deposit Bank from the time Chuck Keiser retired. I could tell you stories of good deeds that Bill did for people in Henry County through the bank. And he’ll be an asset to the school system.

  • Put me in coach ... I’m ready to play!

    Legendary Basketball Coach John Wooden once said “I could never consider a day perfect, unless I could do something for someone knowing that they could never repay me”.

  • Soaring unemployment rates mark six month anniversary of the stimulus

    Back in February, President Barack Obama and Speaker Nancy Pelosi promised that by passing their economic stimulus package, we could provide a “jolt” to our economy and create jobs “immediately.” 

    In a report on the stimulus’ first one hundred days, Vice President Joe Biden claimed that the stimulus had already “saved or created” 150,000 jobs and that “an additional 600,000 jobs” were expected to be created in the next 100 days.

  • It’s back " the third annual Fall Fury

    This year’s event will take place on Saturday, Sept. 12, from 12 to 5 p.m. As always, there will be great Christian music, hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and drinks as well as lots of fun inflatable activities for the young and young at heart.

    Our special guest this year will be Jay Montgomery and his strength ministry. We hope your family will come out to see the power of God both through his hands and through his heart. We are also excited to announce that WJIE will be out to help with free give aways and promotions.

  • Women have made great strides, have a long way to go

    In 1921, when Boyd County voters made Mary Elliott Flanery the first woman in the South to be elected to a state legislature, she did not lack confidence about the work ahead.  “I can hold my own with the boys when I get to Frankfort,” she is quoted as saying.

  • Speed limit discussion requires clarification

    Your article ‘Council sets new limit on Lou” has prompted my response and needs clarity in regard to the content of my letter and the circumstances surrounding my speeding ticket.

    As the Executive Director of the Housing Authority of Eminence I have a responsibility to ensure, to the best of my ability, the safety of the residents.
