Today's Opinions

  • Thanks for help with fundraiser

    Concerning the fundraiser we held at Vive Salon & Spa April 12 for my little brother Tommie Tingle - many thanks to all the good people that helped make our fundraiser a huge success! Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!

    From the many people with donations to all the hard workers - I hesitate to mention you one by one because I don't want to leave anyone out.We had so many wonderful donations for our raffle baskets & our bake sale - and I can't even begin to thank the many people that patiently waited (hours) for a haircut!

  • Davis: Progress is being made in Iraq

    On April 8 and 9, General David Petraeus and U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker testified before Congress about the current political and security situation in Iraq. According to both officials, progress in Iraq is significant, but reversible. As a senior Army commander told me recently, "We simply cannot walk out of the Middle East now."

  • 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.
