Today's Opinions

  • Health care changes could affect families

    The action in Congress to radically reduce Medicaid spending could have huge consequences for families in Henry County, regardless of whether they directly benefit from the program.

  • Brent: New staff is ready to serve county

    The one characteristic of “local” government that I think citizens most appreciate is accessibility. In a day of automated operators, telephone prompts and websites, it is refreshing to call a number, get a friendly person on the other end and have your question answered.  
    It is equally nice to be able to walk into an office without an appointment and have someone that you know, or at least know of, assist you with your business, questions and problems.  

  • Military sacrifices

    My grandson was deployed recently, and I couldn’t be there to see him off. My heart longed to support him and my daughter, his mother, but circumstances beyond my control wouldn’t allow it.

  • Efforts to combat substance abuse

    Someone abuses drugs every hour in Kentucky. But just how people are addicted to drugs in Kentucky is hard to quantify. 

    The reason for that is not every addict seeks treatment and many die as a result. A record number of 1,248 people died from overdoses in 2015 alone, according to the state. 

  • Town has power to decide park's future

    Not long ago, the Eminence City Council made a commitment to citizens to provide a recreational amenity and to enhance Coach D Park, and now they’re making an appeal that everyone help protect this public investment.

    The sprayground cost about $110,000 to install. About half of that came from the state, and Eminence city officials put aside about $60,000 for the required match for the state funds.

  • Seeking help with Eminence Oddfellows Lodge

    The Independent Order of Oddfellows Grand Lodge of Kentucky is interested in revitalizing the Oddfellows lodge in Eminence. We would hope there would be some interest from the residents of Henry County in helping to reestablish the lodge and seeing some of the projects that have been happening over the years maybe start to reappear.

  • New legislation protects gun rights

    The Second Amendment is in the news a lot these days. It should be. It’s an important part of our nation’s history. 

  • You can get a lot for just 75 cents!

    Wednesday afternoons at the Local office are usually quiet; that is unless we’ve had some delivery issues.

    Occasionally, subscribers call in very frustrated and upset because they did not receive their newspaper. For many, it’s part of their routine and when the paper doesn’t reach them – either in their mailbox or at their favorite retail outlet – their routine is completely compromised.
