Today's Opinions

  • Thank you for "Giving a hand to a child in need"

    The Judy Lea Memorial Henry County Children’s Fund committee would like to thank all who helped make this year’s benefit a success. Our 22nd benefit for the children of Henry County raised over $13,000.

    In particular we would like to thank those individuals, businesses and organizations who donated goods and services for the theme baskets, auction items, homemade desserts and for the monetary gifts we received.

  • Resolutions are part of our job, too

    Updating Kentucky’s laws may be the primary job of the General Assembly each legislative session, but it is not the only task legislators undertake. We also enact numerous resolutions that, in many cases, direct state government to focus on areas we feel are important.

    There are three types of resolutions, with the most common being known as “simple.” These only take a vote by either the House or the Senate, and generally they are used to honor Kentuckians or to pay tribute to those who may have passed away.

  • A column by Congressman Geoff Davis

    As gas and food prices continue to climb, it is critical that we effectively manage our budgets and personal finances to make ends meet. Juggling investments, tax returns and credit card bills can be difficult, so it is important to educate yourself on the best ways to save and invest in your future. Since April is Financial Literacy Month, I wanted to share with you some tools that will help you better understand your finances and protect yourself against identity theft.

  • 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.
