Today's Opinions

  • Anniversary of tragedy is solemn

    In this week’s paper, you’ll find several stories focusing on the 20th anniversary of the Carrollton bus crash.

    The stories in this week’s paper represent just a fraction of those that were written for the event’s 20th anniversary, and we will make the rest available on our Web site, www.hclocal.com.

    Several papers took part in this effort, including the Carrollton and Elizabethtown papers who serve the communities most deeply affected by the accident.

  • Thanks for attending anniversary party

    Betty and Jerry Chilton and their children thank everyone who attended their 50th anniversary party or sent their blessings. I know my father especially enjoyed the occasion. Since his stroke in 1999, he has been unable to ambulate very well. I want to especially thank Barbara and Glen Gregory for attending. He too has had health issues in the last decade. Glen has been battling cancer and other ailments associated with this disease but thankfully is cancer free. I am glad he was well enough to attend. Our family received over $400 in cash gifts for Relay For Life.

  • Politics will ruin Eminence

    Eminence Politics are what is wrong with Eminence. Take for instance, the swimming pool. The people that spoke against the pool were all over 40 and had no children that could benefit from the use of the pool. There were two previous mayors and three previous council members who spoke against the pool. Those were the ones in charge when the pool was mismanaged and caused it to close. Those were the people that let it set for six years and never did anything about it.

  • 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."
