Today's Opinions

  • Pool is definitely needed

    It is so easy to forget just how much a pool is needed when the temp outside is so cold. But as the high heat of the summer kicks in, you will remember just why it was there. With gas prices as high as they are, people are tending to stay closer to home. Where will we go?

  • Pool appeals to all ages

    "The worst things in history have happened when people stop thinking for themselves, especially when they allow themselves to be influenced by negative people. That's what gives rise to dictators. Avoid that at all costs. Stop it first on a personal level, and you will have contributed to world sanity as well as your own."

    We believe Donald Trump said it best.

  • Doug Chapman

    L.D. "Doug" Chapman, age 83 of Carrollton, died Sunday, April 6, 2008, at his residence in Carrollton. He was the son of the late Wilbert and Lillian Roberts Chapman, graduate of Campbellsburg High School, attended the University of Kentucky, a U.S. Army Air Corps veteran serving in both WWII and the Korean War achieving the rank of Master Sergeant.

  • Someone to inspire us

    We are standing at a crossroad in history. This has been and will be a record-breaking presidential election, in more ways than one. And for the first time in a long time, Kentucky voters will play a crucial role in selecting the presidential nominees. The Republican presidential primary has already been decided and they have quite a formidable candidate in Senator John McCain. But it's the Democratic race that still has many people on the edge.

  • Health Fair is in its third year

    For the third year in a row, Henry County residents will have the opportunity to visit their very own Community Health Fair. On Saturday April 19 from 9 am to 12 pm the Eminence Community Center will host a health fair for the residents of Henry County. Henry County Public Schools and Eminence Independent Schools including FRYSC, YSC and School Health Services in collaboration with the Henry County Health Department have organized a health event for the entire family.

  • Thanks to all for benefit help

    We would like to thank each and everyone who attended, worked, or contributed in any way to the Marilyn Moore Benefit held on March 21. The benefit was a huge success. Once again, the people of this county opened their arms and hearts and proved why this is the best county in the world to live in.

  • Letter to a litterer

    On a beautiful spring morning as I was traveling down Bullitt Hill Road on my way to work, I was enjoying the bright green of the new landscape. Then, something caught my eye on the side of the road. Not wild flowers nor dogwood blossoms nor redbud sprigs, but a fresh, garish orange and white McDonalds bag! A few rolls of the wheels on the opposite side was a red Miller carton (empty for certain). Bright colors, but ugly trash!

  • City council should rethink opening pool

    It's time for the Eminence City Council to remove the rose-colored glasses and take a hard look at the feasibility of re-opening the city's pool.

    Officials initially believed the pool repairs could run the city as little as $12,000. That belief was hopelessly naive.

    As the pool committee and council looked a little deeper at cost estimates for the pool's repair, the price tag rose from $15,000-$30,000 to more than $150,000.
