Today's Opinions

  • Shelden’s death is a wake-up call

    I’m sure that somewhere there’s a statistic for everything.

    And somewhere in those statistics likely rests the number of people who die in their homes each year because of extreme cold or extreme heat.

    When Henry County coroner Jimmy Pollard called me Monday morning to tell me of the death of Myra Shelden, it weighed heavy on my heart.

    Shelden was found in her home on Friday night, with preliminary results indicating she died from hypothermia.

  • Superintendents commend boards

    As superintendents of Eminence Independent and Henry County Public Schools, we are extremely proud of the students and teachers, the administrators and the service workers who are the heart and soul of our school systems. And we are also proud of the district leadership this community has put in place through the members of our boards of education.

  • Thanks for donations to Adopt-A-Grandparent

  • Thank you for help with Eagle Scout Project

    This year marked the 100th anniversary of Boy Scouts in the United States as well as the year that I completed the requirements necessary to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. I belong to BSA troop 109 which is sponsored by St. Francis in the Field Church in Prospect, but I live in Smithfield and wanted to thank all of my friends in Henry County who really helped make it possible for me to become an Eagle.

  • Agriculture remains a bright spot

    Although the economy has weathered some of its toughest years since the Great Depression, there has been one bright spot for Kentucky: Agriculture.  The new year, in fact, may just bring a new record with it.

    If all goes well, farm receipts could top $5 billion in 2011, or $1 billion more than just several years ago.

  • Christmas thief is a cheap soul

    Our family put a Christmas saddle/flowers on my dad’s grave on Christmas Day at the New Castle Cemetery. By the next morning it had been stolen. These were put on in memory of someone that we loved very much.  Yet was stolen by someone that was truly a heartless and soulless person. We have heard this happens every year to people, and it is truly a sad thing.  Our family hopes our hurt brought you and your family some happiness over the holiday. You truly are a sad and cheap soul.

  • Thanks to help with Nativity Scene

    The Bethlehem Living Nativity Committee would like to thank everyone who had a part in any way, in making this year’s portrayal of the birth of Jesus Christ another success. Many braved the cold and snowy weather to come stand, listen to the music and reflect on the real meaning of Christmas. This is a true testament to the faith you all have. May God bless you all.
