  • Our country will mark the 50th anniversary of Kennedy assassination

      On Friday, our country will mark the 50th anniversary of one of its most tragic events: the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
    Like the attack on Pearl Harbor before it and 9/11 after it, Nov. 22, 1963, is one of a handful of dates in history where those old enough to remember it will never forget where they were and what they were doing.

  • Mainstream media’s agenda party

    By 'Average' Joe Yates

    Our small community is losing the publisher of its weekly paper and I, for one, think it’s a big loss. That, and because a recent column in which I blamed local TV news for taking the kids from our streets is fresh in my mind, has caused me to reflect on the state of today’s media.

  • Peyton's State Runner-up Finish Tops List

    1. It was easy to pick the top highlight of the season this year. MacKenzie Peyton’s runner-up performance at the state golf tournament was stellar but so was her whole season.

  • Chemistry is Key for EHS Volleyball

    Last year I wrote in this column that something special was brewing at Eminence High School.

  • Cburg Council looks at fairness

    One week after another Henry County city declined to consider a fairness ordinance, the Campbellsburg City Council asked their city attorney to draft a similar ordinance.

    Campbellsburg resident Punkin Burk approached the council about the ordinance, pointing to Pleasureville, where a similar ordinance died for lack of a second on a motion to adopt.
