Today's Opinions

  • Child’s insight not far from teaching

    Michael Duncan

    Pastor, Eminence Baptist Church

    Like Donna and I have done, Gerry and Julie Claybrook have spent their adult lives in ministry. Julie saw one of my recent Facebook posts and easily discerned that I would be using the Lord’s Prayer as the central part of an upcoming sermon. She promptly sent me the following message:

  • Goodbyes are tough, but not all bad

    I can’t believe I have written here for two years. Sometimes it seems like yesterday and other days, especially when my colleague Sports Editor Greg Woods is around, it seems longer.

    I have always strived to be a better writer, a better journalist. Coming to the Henry County Local has helped me grow.

    Circumstances out of my control like deadlines, staffing issues, and sometimes fully through my own faults, have caused me to not always put out my best writing. Sometimes my appetite for a good story outweighed what was realistically on my plate.

  • Spreading a bit of sunshine

    John Logan Brent

    County Judge Executive

    If you are like me, you are ready for some sunshine. Every time I read Jon Park’s articles in this paper I see the need for a whole lot of sunshine.

    In last week’s article he likened the “would be” economic impact for New Castle of the proposed 37,000 square foot, 20 something bathroom, $12 million plus bonded justice center to what is happening in Eminence due to CVS. The projects are apples to oranges.

  • Take me out to the ball game

    Joseph Yates

    Average Joe

    Do not tell me it’s just a game, where grown men try to hit a ball by swinging at it with a rounded stick. Baseball has been part of my life as far back as I can remember. It is my sport and I will defend it.

  • Use caution with testosterone treatment
  • Keeping kids safe when it comes to accessible family medications

    Lindsey Seel

    Bluegrass Drug Company

  • Economic development is Eminence's future

    Jon Park

    Guest Columnist

    In 2011, the Henry County Fiscal Court, in a great effort led by Magistrate Nick Hawkins, was considering a new justice center for the county.

    A who’s who of Henry County notables, then, Chief Deputy Clerk Gina Lyle, Attorney Joe Yates, Ricky Doyle, Justin Atchison, and New Castle Mayor Denny Benham all spoke in favor of the project.

  • State legislators want to work for your benefit

    If the state’s budget is the most important legislation that the General Assembly approves every two years, enacting the state’s road plan is a close second.

    As with the budget, the goal is to find the best use for a limited amount of resources.  This is an area where Kentucky generally gets high marks, however, based on an annual national study by the Reason Foundation that ranks the quality of each state’s highway system.  We came in 14th overall last year, with no state having a better quality of rural interstates.
