Today's Opinions

  • You never think it will happen to you

    Over the years, I've covered more than a few accidents. Some severe, some not so severe. I've had loved ones in accidents. My own husband was involved in a rather severe motorcycle accident in 2005.

    Like most folks, I never thought it would happen to me. But it did.

  • Military takes center stage in state House

    As is often the case during the early stages of a legislative session, the House and Senate spend the first few weeks focusing on their respective agendas, adopting bills each hopes the other chamber will consider favorably.

    For the House last week, the military took center stage, as we unanimously approved legislation designed to help our veterans and those soldiers still serving.

  • Danville Main Street Program clarified

    I read the article submitted by City Commissioner Tim Royalty with much dismay. His reference to Danvilles Main Street Program should be clarified.

  • Thank you for pool vote

    As a resident of the great city of Eminence I would like to say to my mayor and city council, thank you for showing us that our kids count. Thank you for voting to open the pool.

    I'd also like to thank Making Waves for all the hard work that they put into helping make this possible for all the kids in our community.

    I feel that everyone young and old will greatly benefit from this. Our kids have an opportunity to make some great memories with friends and family and we parents will be spared our sanity.

  • FRYSC also thankful for help

    The Henry County Family Resource Center and Youth Services Center would like to thank every church, school, business, organization, and individual that helped to make this years Christmas for Kids program a success. 167 children were adopted out, and with financial donations we were able to shop for the remaining 36 giving us a total of 203 children that were served. Again, thanks for helping make this another successful Christmas for Kids and thanks for the continued support you give to our programs throughout the year.

  • Thanks for paying it forward

    Over the past couple of weeks, in my mind, I've written at least one-hundred different versions of this letter. As I type the words now, I'm not confident that I will convey my true feelings, thankfulness, and pride in being part of this community.

  • Thanks to all for help in making pool vote possible

    A special thanks goes to the Eminence City Council for their Jan. 14, unanimous vote, to reopen the swimming pool. They also created a pool commission to oversee the repairs and operation.

    Also, special thanks goes to the parents of the children of Eminence and Henry County for signing petitions (more than 700 signatures), for attending three Making Waves meetings (average attendance 50), numerous phone calls and letters and volunteering for fundraisers. This exceptional community support has made all the difference to the city council.

  • Are we really free?

    Everyone's screaming free country, freedom. Others scream smoke free. If it's a free country why does everything cost so much. I could never figure out what we are free from. Some say the military is fighting for freedom. One hundred years later they are still saying they are fighting for freedom. What an excuse to kill foreign people. Some days it feels like house arrest. There's only so far you can go because it either cost too much or you run out of land. It seems that the way everything is going they don't find a way to charge us for the air we breathe.
