  • Honoring first responders on anniversary of 9/11

    On some anniversaries we celebrate. On others we reflect.
    The 15th anniversary of the attack on America and New York’s World Trade Center is one of the times for reflection. There is truly nothing to celebrate in the extraordinary tragedy of 9/11.
    As much as I would like to forget some of them, the images from that day will never be out of my mind, nor will the victims and their families.
    But there is one memory I want to hold on to, one that I want to cherish as the deepest and most lasting of Sept. 11, 2001.

  • National POW/MIA Recognition Day is Sept. 16

    The United States’ National POW/MIA Recognition Day is observed across the nation on the third Friday of September each year. Many Americans take the time to remember those who were prisoners of war (POW) and those who are missing in action (MIA), as well as their families. Let us pray that we never forget those who have never returned home to their families.

  • Has SNAP changed?

    On Aug. 29, I was in line at [a local convenience store] in Eminence and I was shocked at what I saw. 

    The lady in front of me bought 12, 16-ounce beers and a pack of cigarettes and nothing else with her SNAP card. They took her card and okayed the purchase. 

    So, now the government supports your alcohol and tobacco habit? This costs our taxpayers untold amounts of money in health care and alcohol-related care and deaths.

  • Thanks for support

    I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to each and every one who helped make the Odd Fellows parade a success. 

    To those who loaned us their vehicles, their wagon and their time to come out and participate, we say thank you. To the fire departments, sheriff’s office, Henry County band, we so much appreciate all you do. 

  • Candidate clarifies

    My name is Doreen S. Goodwin and I am running to keep my position as family court judge for Oldham, Henry and Trimble counties. 

  • County needs more Odd Fellows, not less

    You wouldn’t necessarily know it now without being a local history buff, but by the accounts I’ve seen and heard, the Eminence Lodge 140 of the International Order of the Odd Fellows used to be a real local powerhouse.

    I’ve written about the Eminence lodge a couple times recently as they’ve had the misfortune to be the victim of a theft of a big part of their financial assets, which prompted the closing of the long-established fraternal order.
