Today's Opinions

  • Campbellsburg resident unhappy with surcharge

    I am very disappointed in the city of Campbellsburg. I was willing to pay the surcharge that was enacted in order to complete a needed sewer project. Now, they are discussing what to do with $700,000 in leftover funds? That's great, I'm glad that they will be able to complete some other sewer projects that they weren't anticipating to in the first place. However, I didn't see anywhere in the article where they are discussing removing or reducing the surcharge. The project for which it was being used is now COMPLETED.

  • Good things do come in small packages

    They say good things come in small packages.

    In case you missed it last week, Eminence High School was named to the U.S. News and World Report's list of Amierca's Best High Schools.

    Its great news for such a small school. Small schools, and small school districts are increasingly rare because their funding decreases annually.

    In McLean County, several years ago, a small elementary school was facing closure as its student population declined.

    But that small school had some similarities to Eminence.

    Eminence should indeed be applauded for the award.

  • Thanks for help after accident

    I would like to say a special thanks to Mayor Jim Pettit, the guys at the community center, to the gentleman that helped me up after my fall, to the lady that put ice on my hand, to my son for coming to check on me, for the phone calls and concerns, to my granddaughters Kandice and Marcy, a special thanks to my friends Barbara and Scotty Owens for helping me to get home and all the phone calls, to my pastor, Sister Linda Morgan of Christ Open Door Church, for her phone calls and prayers. God bless each and everyone of you.

  • Thanks to all for help in Sydney Alveys recovery

    It has been almost one year since Sydney's tragic accident changed our lives forever. Although we have faced many challenges, the past 12 months have been filled with as much laughter as tears. We are so thankful for the recovery Sydney continues to make and we know none of it could have been possible without the love, prayers, support and generosity of family, friends, neighbors and strangers.

  • Vote on drink sales was the right move

    During its business meeting Monday night, the Eminence City Council voted to approve amending its current alcohol ordinance to include liquor by the drink sales.

    We couldn't agree more with that decision.

  • Holiday season for some is a little different

    Growing up Jewish, the holiday season was always a bit different for me.

  • Are our children safe?

    That is the question living on Zelcova Drive in Eminence. With our neighboring subdivision, Arbor View, we have a lot of children who play in this area. Not only do we have children playing but we also have dozens of people who walk the bike trail and this road daily. The speed limit on this road is 15 mph. So why, on an every day basis, do we have dozens of cars speeding well over the speed limit? Do the newly installed stop signs boarding the bike trail and Arbor View help? No, they don't. Everyday I witness several cars blowing the stop signs totally.

  • Local relative is someone to be proud of

    I've made my Christmas list and I've checked it twice. I am having trouble finding a few gifts that would be nice. You have a great aunt of mine that lives in your peaceful and fondly missed town, Anne Wentworth. I think most of you know each other and can appreciate my struggle with finding "Aunt Fran" the right gift.
