Today's Opinions

  • Thanks for all coming to, and helping with, the New Castle Spring Fling

    I would like to thank everyone for coming to the 26th Annual New Castle Spring Fling on Sat., June 14. The Spring Fling was another success!

  • Be wary of the four footed hitchikers

    I tried something new a few weeks ago: carpooling to work. It was a new experience for me, especially since my passenger was a complete stranger.

    The night before my carpooling escapade, I had been driving around Louisville with friends. It was so relieving that the weather finally felt like summer and we rolled down the windows, opened the sunroof and enjoyed the warm wind against our faces.

  • Pearl Harbor veterans thankful for show of support

    We three Kentucky Pearl Harbor survivors and many more veterans would like to thank the citizens of Eminence for a great Veterans Day Parade on May 17. Many thanks to the merchants who donated items to this event. A lot of organization and work made this a great day. Even the little dog in the driveway wagging its tail greeted us as we drove by. To us, Eminence demonstrated what America is all about.

  • HCMS Principal will be missed

    As a former teacher in Henry County, I was disappointed to learn that Steve Swank will no longer be the principal of Henry County Middle School. During my five years at the middle school I was able to witness many positives occurring under Mr. Swank’s leadership. Kentucky Core Content Test scores improved; portfolio writing scores increased to an all-time high of 64 percent proficiency; student technology use was visible throughout the school; and a no-bullying policy was instituted to improve the learning environment of all students.

  • Shanghai: First impressions

    We arrived in Shanghai Thursday night at 9 (9 a.m. Henry Co. time). The airport was not very crowded and we were able to get through customs fairly quickly. Finding my sister, Verna, was not hard. With her blonde hair and 5’10” frame she towered over most of the people waiting to greet arrivers.

  • Resident responds to Eminence Ethics Committee article

    Since I was the subject of the Wednesday, June 11, article “Ethics committee meets for first time,” I believe it is appropriate that I respond.

    The article stated, “Gingrich, who was not present at the meeting” and “he (Gingrich) is not here to defend himself” (YIKES, a resident must defend himself if he writes a letter to the board?) implies that I had a choice to attend or not attend.

  • Pool issue will not be forgotten

    Now that it is June (the month that the Eminence City Council voted to reopen the swimming pools), I thought it would be important for citizens (voters) to know the actual facts, not rumors, not politicians spin, about what happened to the pool project.

    • The four council members who voted to “pull the plug” on the pool project had previously campaigned to reopen the pool.

    • The council voted six different times to support reopening the pool. (Please see Eminence “minutes” online.)

  • Thank you to a member of the Eminence City Council

    I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to one of the Eminence City Council members. This member, in my opinion, is the type of person that understands his duty as a member of the Eminence City Council. I called him to see if he could help my family with a problem and he assured me that he would try and get it solved. When I hung up the phone I thought that he would get back with me in a few days but the very next day not only did he call me back, but he had already solved my problem. I know that this might seem small to some but it meant a lot to my family.
