Today's Opinions

  • 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

  • Create a place for skate boarders to go

    I am writing in response to the article on banning skate boards. The activities for our children in New Castle are limited. If the children are skate boarding instead of selling drugs on our streets than why are we taking away their enjoyment?

    We as our children's leaders must look for other ways to fix this solution. We do not have to build an extravagant skate board park such as downtown Louisville, but what about building an area such as the one in LaGrange?

  • Legislative focus with Rick Rand

    While most legislative sessions are generally remembered for two or three major accomplishments, there are often dozens of other laws that positively affect our lives, even if they do not generate as much news.

    In recent years, we in the House have included many of these initiatives in our "Commitment to Kentucky Families" agenda. "Taken together, they are designed to improve our schools, our collective health and the way we interact with state government. "All are affordable, commonsense measures.
