Today's Opinions

  • Bill Covington is a good man

    The past five years or so have been very difficult watching from the sidelines as my father's name is tarnished in newsprint and court proceedings. My father's voice was silenced allowing for no comment because of legalities. Though I can't speak on his behalf, I feel it is imperative that those in Henry County understand the positive contribution and sacrifice he brought to this small community.

  • County needs better connectivity

    Why is it that Henry County can't attract new businesses, so there can be local jobs for local people?

    According to the Ky Deskbook of Economic Statistics, 59 percent of Henry County's workforce is employed out of the county, and 46.3 percent of them travel more than 30 minutes to get to their job destinations.

    The cost of living is going up daily, due largely to the gas crisis. The spending power of a paycheck is dwindling, but just how much of it is going to the increased cost of just getting to work?

  • Let's think like adults, not children

    During the Eminence City Council meeting Monday night, two city council members were lauded for sticking to their guns and their original votes on the issue of the city's swimming pool.

    They should be commended. Sticking to one's beliefs in the face of a room full of folks with opinions on both sides of the issue is an admirable attitude.

  • Money could be put to better use

    This pool issue has been something that our family and community has now heard of and been listening to for quite some time now. During the last city elections for Mayor and Council members, we had quite a few prospects, and current members stop by our home. The only constant issue that any of them talked about, was the pool. They all mentioned there was a great need for something for our young people to do in this city, let alone county.

  • 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.
