  • Legislation would ease economic pain for many

    For many Kentucky families, the economic downturn has affected more than just their grocery bills and energy costs.  The housing crisis and credit crunch have some facing potential unemployment, threat of foreclosure on their homes or even homelessness.  According to the National Coalition of Homelessness, more than sixty percent of service providers have reported a rise in homelessness since the housing foreclosure crisis began in 2007.  Unfortunately, as hard times sweep across the nation, many more Americans could become homeless. 

  • When can I share good news?

    I attended the last city council meeting in October when the council stated there will be no skate park. Just two months ago I had to tell my kids there will be no swimming pool and now I will have to tell them there will be no skate park. I want to know when I will be able to tell my kids some good news about recreation for them here in the city?

    Please, to the city of Eminence, let’s work together for the future of all residents.

  • Sweet talking a reluctant farmhand

    My husband is always careful to lavish praise on me whenever I help him with a chore around our farm.  “You are one in a million!” he will rave if I assist the veterinarian on a day when he can’t be home. “I picked a peach when I picked you,” he coos as I hold up boards or wire while he repairs fence. “A guy’s lucky to have a gal like you,” I’ll hear, sweat dripping down my face, as we drive back after pulling the truck or some machine out of a ditch. “Super job, babe! Great work!”

  • Frankfort Perspective with Rick Rand

    If voter registration and a recent statewide poll are any indication, the upcoming election is one of the most anticipated in years in Kentucky.

    According to the Secretary of State’s office, there are a record 2.9 million voters registered to vote on Nov. 4th, an increase of nearly 50,000 from the May primary.  In 2004, the last presidential election year, 2.79 million Kentuckians were registered.

  • Candidate asks for your votes

    My name is Rochelle ‘Shelley” Summerlin.  I am a candidate for Eminence City Council.

    When I filed my candidacy papers, there was a question that asked, ‘How do you want your name to appear on the ballot.”  I wrote ‘Shelley’ Summerlin, which is the name on my cards and signs.  However, imagine my surprise when I saw the name on the ballot was Rochelle Summerlin.  I would like the voters to know that Rochelle and Shelley are the same person.

    I also want the voters to know why I am running.

  • Support Manda Gingrich

    Is there someone from Eminence who is running for president? You would think so with all this negative talk that’s going on. All this negative talk seems to be aimed at one certain person. Yet this person is the only one that I’ve talked to or heard say anything about what they will do if elected.
