Today's Opinions

  • Now it’s time to exhale, get to work

    When I finally left the office on election night, the election hadn’t yet been called in Barack Obama’s favor.

    The lights in the office were out, traffic on the road was nonexistent, and it was still.

    There was no wind, no road noise, just … quiet.

    There were few, if any clouds in the sky, and the stars twinkled vividly.

    I stood still in front of our door, enjoying the calmness, the quiet, the solitude.

  • Thanks for help with Toy Run

    First and foremost we want to thank Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior for making this toy run a big success.  We serve an awesome God.

    A big thank you to all who were involved with the Henry County Toy Run.  Without all of your support this would not have been possible.

    We personally want to thank Henry County Local and Cindy DiFazio.  Cindy, you did an excellent job putting the story together about the toy run.

  • Be safe, be seen on Halloween

    Submitted by Bruce Owens

    Director, Henry County Emergency Management

    Tips on designing and creating Halloween costumes at home to meet “See and be Seen” safety standards are being offered by the Kentucky Optometric Association in a pre-Halloween message to parents.

    According to the vision care organization, many Halloween accidents from skinned knees to pedestrian traffic fatalities, can be traced to a child’s inability to see steps, curbs and automobiles or to a driver’s failure to see a child in time to stop.

  • Support Pauline “Polly” Troxell

    I am writing today in support of Polly Troxell for Eminence City Council. I do not live in the City of Eminence therefore I cannot cast a vote for Polly on November 4. However, I do work with Polly on a daily basis at the Henry County Senior Enrichment Center. Polly devotes numerous volunteer hours to the Senior Center and to the senior citizens of Eminence and Henry County. She cares about people and about doing the right thing. If elected she would serve the city of Eminence very well. Polly is dedicated to helping people in any way that she can.

  • Former magistrate wants to set the record straight

    I would like to set the record straight regarding the recent controversial letters to the Editor concerning the Eminence Fire Department building a new firehouse.

    Back in January I contacted Congressman Geoff Davis’s office concerning any possibility of any USDA Rural Development First Responder/Community Facilities Grants being available. I was told by, Tami Wilson, in Congressman Davis’s office that she did not believe the Eminence Fire Department was eligible for a grant under this funding, but she would plan to investigate.

  • Candidate asks for your support

    With the election less than a week away, I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself and to announce my candidacy for City Council of Eminence. Many of you may already be familiar with me and my family through the volunteer work that we have done since returning  to Eminence six years ago.

  • Be wary of Team Gingrich

    I’ve heard that “all it takes for evil to prevail, is for good people to do nothing.” What Eminence needs to know before they vote on Tuesday is that (Manda) Gingrich’s entire purpose for running is to hopefully gain control of four city council seats. This would create a quorum on the council and stack every vote in favor of their agendas. Manda Gingrich, Leo Mason, Rochelle (Shelley) Summerlin and Glenn Simpson are running in tandem with each other and in protest to our mayor and council.

    I have four main issues with “Team Gingrich”.

  • Family thanks community for support

    We would like to share with you what an amazing community this is to live in.  On Aug. 15, Doug was involved in a tractor accident that left him trapped under a tractor for two hours and very lucky to be alive!  Even though the accident happened in Elmburg at his parent’s farm, people came to the rescue from all over.
