Today's Opinions

  • Providing school meals is not as easy as 1-2-3 or ABC

    Henry County made national news last week after a Henry County High School student’s Facebook post about seeing another student refused lunch went viral, caught wind and sailed across local airwaves, across the country and even across the pond hitting the news in London.

    The student’s post expressed frustration with the school district for not allowing the other student to have a meal because her lunch account was overdue. 

  • School security

    I would like to commend the Eminence school system for their security measures.

    At the end of school, my son’s last class is at the old DeliPlus complex. On rainy days, I will stop over there and drop off his umbrella.

    The fact that just about everybody knows who I am didn’t matter — they kept the doors locked until I left. 

  • Thanks for support in Pleasureville

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that came out to the 2015 Light up Pleasureville. It was very humbling to have so many community members support me and the event. It was estimated almost 300 people came out to take advantage of all the activities. 

  • Vote 'no' to increased alcohol sales

    Please vote no on Dec. 15 in regard to increased alcohol sales in Henry County. If we do not vote down the effort to make Henry County “wet,” Henry County will be forever changed.

  • Easier access to alcohol will compound problem

    As spiritual leaders, we desire to offer help with the issues that most people try to mask with alcohol and drugs, and with the upcoming local option election on Dec. 15, we want to convey that our hearts are concerned for the people of our county in which we serve.

  • Budget deadline looming

    By Thomas Massie, U.S. Representative

    Will Dec. 11 mark another déjà vu moment for Congress?  This looming deadline is the day by which Congress must once again fund the federal government for the upcoming fiscal year. 

  • Have you read the Local lately?

  • When faith is not enough, invest in hope

    We invest a lot in Christmas, and I don’t mean the dollars we spend...though many do invest a lot of those. 

    We invest emotions. We want our celebrations — family, church, and community — to be perfect. We want everyone present, the food to be perfect, and everyone to be of good cheer the whole day long. It seldom works out that way.
