Today's Opinions

  • Please don’t steal my new trash cart

    I assure you that I did not intend to herald in a new year and a new decade on a negative note but some recent circumstances have provoked me to the point where I feel compelled to vent a little. It’s about Rumpke trash cans — let me explain.

  • There’s more to the CFD rebuild

    After reading last week’s editorial in the Henry County Local, I feel I should address some of the issues raised.

  • Food and prescription assistance

    For all Henry County residents there are two new opportunities for assistance that you may be interested in.  First, on the last Wednesday of each month the Dare to Care Mobile Food Pantry will be at the Henry County Fairgrounds from 3 to 6 p.m. The Henry County and Eminence Schools Family Resource Centers have taken the lead on this new program and are doing an excellent job with it. The mobile pantry came to Henry County for the first time last month. It served an estimated 250 people, providing them with a box of food which included meat and potatoes.

  • Energy, economy, education studies received by General Assembly

    At the end of the year, and with an eye on the beginning of another legislative session, the General Assembly often receives studies from a handful of special committees formed to study a single issue.

    2009 was no different, with at least five providing their findings in recent weeks.  Energy was the driving force behind two, while education and the economy were the focus of the other three.

  • Lack of urinals isn’t the real travesty

    With all due respect to Campbellsburg City Council member Rex Morgan, the lack of urinals at the Campbellsburg Fire Department is, in itself, far from a travesty.

    The travesty is that months after reconstruction of the station began, problems still are cropping up. If the bidding process was any indication, this shouldn’t be a surprise.

  • Thanks for help with nativity

    We want to thank everyone who helped in any way to once again make sure the ministry of the Bethlehem Living Nativity keeps going.

    This portrayal of our savior Jesus Christ’s birth is now 51 years old.

    Without all your help and support these many years, this would surely not have been possible.

    Again, thank you so much. May God bless each of you.

  • Christmas isn’t just for children

    The other day I overheard a conversation in the grocery store while waiting in line to check out. A woman was saying that Christmas is for children, and her listener clucked her tongue and said that she certainly had to agree. I have heard this sad assessment of the holiday season before, but I am always taken aback. 

    Certainly, the religious significance of the Christmas season does not fade as one ages. If anything, it may deepen as you become stronger in your faith. I am sure there are many heartfelt sermons delivered on that very topic each December.

  • Commissioner repeats position

    As for the maintenance of the properties in Pleasureville if you had listented to what I said I am 100 percent for keeping our town looking good, the trash picked up and the yards mowed. I am not for putting a lien on someone’s property because they don’t have the money to put siding on their house. I think we have bigger things to worry about like the Pool Room was broken into; the hardware store was broken into; the post office, someone used the bathroom and wiped it on everything; a car was stolen. But they say we don’t need a police officer.
