  • Preservation for cemetery reflects respect

    The national resurgence of interest in the Lincoln era, the movie Lincoln, the book Killing Lincoln seems to coincide with the recent activity to renew our own Eminence Cemetery, which is also a Lincoln era creation.

    The Kentucky Legislature charted the Eminence Cemetery in 1860. The first burial was in 1864. There are surely many incidents in the long history of the cemetery that are entwined in our state and national history.

  • Good news for state budgets

    As the debate in Washington rages over what the federal government should do to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff, there is some good news when it comes to state government budgets: Most are finally seeing their bottom lines stabilizing.

  • A letter of thanks

    Homestead Nursing Center wants to thank all the many volunteers, individuals and businesses who donated their time and prizes for our Fall Festival on Oct. 26. The Festival’s success would not have been possible without them. Just as important, we want to thank the community for coming out and supporting our residents through your purchases and participation. Again, on behalf of Homestead’s residents, we want to thank you for making the 2012 Homestead Fall Festival such a success.

  • Thanks to the Smoke Doctors

    The Henry Co. Family Resource Center would like to thank the Smoke Doctors for the canned food drive that was held on Nov. 17.  Through their generous spirit of providing individuals with a free meal for food donations, we collected 767 cans of food and $108 which will be used to help fill holiday baskets and restock the FRC shelves.  We would also like to thank the community for coming out to support this great cause.

  • Looking ahead to the General Assembly

    Each fall, not long before Thanksgiving, the General Assembly’s administrative staff offers an in-depth look at some of the issues it believes could be debated during the legislative session that begins each January.

    The report comes from the 15 main committees that vote on legislation, and while no one can predict what ultimately will become law, this analysis gives us a better idea of what may need to be addressed.

  • Baptist Northeast award is well earned

    This year I celebrated my 10th year of providing OB/GYN care to those in our community and surrounding counties. I chose to practice in La Grange because the community was similar to the small town in which I was raised in eastern Kentucky. My goal was to bring quality care from the “city” to our community so our residents didn’t have to drive to town for excellent care.

  • Kentucky blazes new education path

    Early this month, we took another major step forward with the release of the latest round of school accountability scores.

    Our goal is to truly see where our students stand against their counterparts across the country and around the world.  Rather than testing whether they have a good understanding of the material, we want to know if they are on the way to being ready for college and a career – the benchmark that counts most.
