Today's Opinions

  • Board made an excellent choice

    I believe that the school board made an excellent choice. In my acquaintance with Buddy I have found him to be a sharp, polite, intelligent, caring person. He could have chosen a career in the construction industry, but decided to blaze his own trail of educating young people and helping them to be all they could be. The pupils are already excited and I feel that Buddy is up to the challenge to take EIS to the next step of excellence in education Once again I commend the school board for this excellent choice.

  • Reality TV’s appeal " and benefits

    Do you watch the reality shows on television?  The number and variety of topics for such programs boggle the mind. Yet it seems as if there’s a promo for a new reality show every week.

  • Berry cares about Eminence

    I have known Buddy Berry for the last seven years. Buddy is extremely intelligent and there is not a more dedicated, harder worker out there. Buddy will give 110 percent and I feel will be a success. I think Eminence made a wonderful choice for superintendent, because Buddy deeply cares about Eminence.

  • Former magistrate supports Meadows

    As the May 18 primary election nears, I ask the voters of Magisterial District No. 1 to consider voting for Danny Meadows. His past experience speaks for itself. Danny has served several years as an Eminence City Councilman, past member and officer of the Eminence Optimist Club, board member of the Henry County Country Club, actively involved as a volunteer coach and organizer for various Henry County youth sports programs, and employed in sales and manufacturing for over 27 years at Eminence Speaker LLC.

  • Happy about curb side recycling

    I want to commend the New Castle City Commission for acting to provide curb side pick-up of recyclables. This voluntary program is progressive and sets a good example for our community.  We all need to do our part to protect the environment. I am confident that this program will encourage many to participate in recycling who wouldn’t  otherwise. Thank you Commissioners for your farsightedness.

  • Campbellsburg mayor responds to criticism

    In response to your article regarding my actions as the mayor and the letter to the editor, I feel a response is in order to protect my integrity and that of my decision making  Graham Whatley, our newly acquired lawyer.

  • The aftermath of the Jerry Springer show

    What a difference two months makes.

    On March 1, Pleasureville had its last, and now infamous, wild meeting. It was what I referred to as a Jerry Springer like atmosphere.

    Since then, three of the four commissioners who were on the commission have resigned — though one, Gary Grigsby, resigned only because he moved from Pleasureville to Shelbyville.

    Citing health concerns, Sandra Woods resigned after the February meeting.

  • Did the board make the right choice?

    Of course.  When I first moved my family to the Eminence School district in 1989, one of the most impressive things about Eminence was the small town, homey feeling which included a young superintendent with children in the school who had a vested interest in what happened in the building!  Now, I have grandchildren in Eminence Independent Schools and I look forward to what Buddy Berry brings to the table as superintendent.
