Today's Opinions

  • “Here we go again”

    Mayors running for city council and city council members running for mayor. Sounds like a revolving door of the same ideas and the same intrusive rules and regulations. I see no change at all. As I said before the last election we need new people with new ideas.

  • Support LeeAnn Armstrong

    It’s been a wonderful summer here in Eminence. The activities - Music on Main, DJ in the Park, movie night and even cruising - have been a perfect time to get out of the house and socialize for all ages.

    We are fortunate to have a city council that isn’t satisfied with just being a city, but wants to build community among the residents. The planning and execution of these activities deserves our gratitude and support.

  • Few states can match Kentucky’s automotive record

    When it comes to the automotive industry, few states can match Kentucky’s record.

    Our association with Henry Ford, for example, stretches back almost a century, when in 1912 he opened a sales and service office in Louisville.  A few years later, that city was producing 7,000 vehicles, and a few years after that it became home to the country’s first modern assembly plant.  Now, Louisville’s two production facilities – one that began in 1955 and the other in 1969 – are regularly among the company’s leaders.

  • ‘The money is, it’s crazy.’

    John Suter typically is low key in meetings of the Campbellsburg City Council. He certainly participates in discussions about the city’s decisions, but Monday night, he expressed his own frustration at the direction the city has taken

    When he spoke his mind Monday night, it was concise, and pointed, and seemed to sum up the council’s frustration.

    “The money is, it’s crazy. I just want to let you know, I’ve had a lot of people wanting to know who’s running the city and what’s going on. It’s an embarrassment to me. "

  • Where were the health department employees?

    Thank you to governor Steve Beshear for the commonwealth’s contribution of monies for the new Henry County Health Department.

    There was, however, a group of people missing from the ground breaking ceremony on Thursday, Sept. 9. As Judge-Executive John Logan Brent and the Governor, turned over a spade of dirt, did anyone ask where the Henry County Health Department staff were?


  • Cedar Lake thanks county for support

    On behalf of Cedar Lake Lodge, and particularly our 130 employees who make their home in Henry County, we want to thank everyone who has aided, encouraged, supported or welcomed the addition of our Cedar Lake Lodge Park Place homes in the new Henry County Recreational and Services Park.  We’ve long enjoyed our close kinship with Henry County and it is now an even stronger bond.

  • Regarding “Security breach closes Home Health Agency”

    The Henry County Home Health Agency opened in 1976 in New Castle, and provided services to patients in Henry, Oldham, Trimble and Oldham Counties. I worked there from 1997 to 1999 with the last few years as supervisor/coordinator. I retired in 1999 and returned from 2008 to July 1 2010 in the nurse consultant/coordinator position (the eighth coordinator since 1999). In the early 1980s, four counties chose to join together to form the North Central District Health Department for economical as well as to be able to provide better services to the communities.

  • Who do you have to know?

    As a tax paying resident of Henry County, I think it’s only reasonable to expect that the road I live on receive the same care and maintenance as any other road in the county.
