Today's Opinions

  • Thanks to basketball parents, families and players

    We would like to express a heartfelt thank you to all of the Henry County Girls' and Boys' basketball moms, dads, families and players that pitched in to help work the concession stand for the Regional Tournament. While most of us hold full time jobs and never have a minute to spare you all far exceeded our expectations in your willingness to work and support each other and our kids. Without each and every one of you that volunteered your precious time,we couldn't have done it! So, thank you!

  • March is Music in Education month

    As a humble third grader, I loved to sing. I cannot begin to express how much I loved it. The problem was, at least according to my sister, I was tone deaf.

    I had not yet acquired the Criss family gene, handed down through my mother, for musical aptitude.

    That would change when I entered the fourth grade and had my first experience with instruments.

    It was then, through school, that I learned to play the violin. Over the years, I was able to lose the tone-deafness, and now can sing my then favorite song - Toto's "Roseanna" without missing a beat ... or a note.

  • Superintendent thanks Foundation supporters

    On behalf of the Eminence Education Foundation and the Eminence Independent School District, I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for making our Education Dinner and Silent Auction such a success. The Foundation collected over $10,000 to use for future scholarships and teachers' grants.

  • Thanks for hard work after storms

    Our farm received considerable damage in the February 5 storms. Our electric service and telephone service, like several others in the area, was out for two days. KU was swamped with repair calls but did an amazing job in restoring service, working past midnight. The dedication of their employees, working long hours in difficult conditions, needs to be recognized.

  • Girls Scouts thank Judge-Executive John Logan Brent

    The Girl Scouts of Henry County would like to thank Judge-Executive John Logan Brent for his help during our Girl Scout cookie delivery. The use of the 4-H building for distribution and his help when we ran into a gigantic snag during delivery is greatly appreciated. The Girl Scouts are now ready for your yearly cookie sales and a little ice storm couldn't keep us down! Thank you Judge Brent!

  • Keep making waves to open the pool

    I really appreciate all that the Making Waves committee has done to help open the pool. Even if the pool is unable to open this summer, it just needs to get open sometime in the next couple of years to give the kids something cool and fun to do in the summer. That's why I have some ideas of how to get the pool open and keep the pool open and going.

  • Coffee shop talk is returning to normal

    I couldn't help myself. Normally, I wouldn't care. But I blame two, maybe three, little old ladies in a Louisville coffee shop.

    There are certain words and phrases that my brain listens for, even if I'm not actively listening.

    Somehow, and I couldn't tell you how, Britney Spears made it into the mental queue. Maybe it had something to do with the Dr. Phil visit to her psych ward room, which thrust her name into the headlines and news broadcasts for what seemed like the dozenth time in three days.

  • Thanks to EPD and HCSO for show of respect

    Thanks to the Eminence Police and Henry County Sheriff's Department for the professional way they escorted Sam's funeral to Eminence. They honored him by bowing their heads as we came out of the funeral home and continued at every turning point.

    This showed our family respect and how well he was thought of. Several comments were made on a very organized and professional job. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

    Patsye Jennings and family, Eminence
