Today's Opinions

  • Election day is just two weeks away

    The big day is almost here.

    On Nov. 2, Henry Countians will head to the polls and cast their choices for city, county and state races.

    I’d like to extend a big thank you to those candidates who participated in our election forums last week, and those who will attend our third and final forum tomorrow night in Campbellsburg.

  • Ky Chamber PAC endorses Rick Rand

    With four weeks left before the election, it is make-or-break time for many candidates.  In Kentucky, our legislature contains many true statesmen who should be kept in office.  Rep. Rick Rand is of these statesmen.

  • Response to Letter by Dr. Steven D. White

    The letter by Dr. White on Oct. 6 presented numerous questions and comments.  The following will provide responses to some of the questions, and provide further detail relative to various comments.

  • Keep our jailer, re-elect J.C. Suter

    I just want to say we don’t need a new jailer. J.C. has done an excellent job.

  • Thank you to unknown caller

    The family and friends of Jackie Payne would like to thank the unknown person who rendered aid to him by calling 911.  Jackie had a motorcycle accident on Mulberry Pike on 10/6/10 at approximately 8:30 p.m.  He was unconscious and lying off the roadway when this unidentified male called for medical assistance.  We need more people like this in the world who are willing to go above and beyond.

  • Stop messing with the thermostat!

    It’s a source of contention in many households. Cold natured folks and hot natured folks battle for temperature control.

    In my own home, Derek (the cold natured one) and I (the warm natured one), can’t seem to agree on just what temperature we want the house.

  • Searching for that perfect shade tree

    Most folks who know me can attest that I love being outside.

    My idea of a vacation isn’t sitting up in a hotel for a week — it’s putting my clothes, food and tent in a backpack and hoofing it several miles through the woods for a few days.

    Heck, each year after the fair I retreat to a favorite campground or trail to relax for a week or so.

  • Don’t vote with your heart, vote for the best person for the job

    This is not Washington D.C. but we the people of this town still have a chance to save it. But we have to make a stand and fight for what we believe in and stop living in fear!

    I have lived in Eminence all my life; as the years have passed by, I have watched my city decline. Despite what the “elected politicians” tell us, the sad reality is we are losing businesses and a lot of quality people are moving out of our community.
