• Protecting and Planning the future’s resource

    The people of  Henry County and the City of Eminence are fortunate to have chosen a group of their fellow citizens to take responsibility for the community’s most precious resource and a key to its future – children and their educational opportunities.

  • A letter of thanks

    Thanks for help with Nativity

    We wish to thank everyone who had a part in any way with the Bethlehem Living Nativity this year.

    It takes a lot of very dedicated people who give their time and talents to make sure this great tradition continues each and every year.

    May you all be blessed with the love of our Savior Jesus Christ throughout this new year and beyond. Until next year!

    The Bethlehem Living Nativity Committee

  • Holiday food may be a gift from Kentucky

    One of the hallmarks of the holidays is that there never seems to be a shortage of good food to eat.  From turkey on Thanksgiving to homemade candy at Christmas, it’s usually easy to find something to fill up a plate.
    Increasingly, there’s a strong chance that this food has a Kentucky connection as well, though that may not always be readily known when we reach into the pantry or the refrigerator.

  • Donations will help

    I applaud the project to provide community opportunities to help with the upkeep on the Eminence cemetery.  It is one of the ways that individuals can get involved to make sure that the cemeteries in the country are well maintained.

  • Youth sets example

    Hats off to a 14-year-old who single-handedly planned, acquired, organized and carried off a fun and festive evening for Light Up Pleasureville.

    Many of us adults could learn from this young man’s interest, zeal and determination for the betterment of our community. How extraordinary! Our out-of-town guests were in awe that it takes a 14-year-old to set the example!

    And a big thank you to Santa (Tom Smith)! You certainly impressed my granddaughters with your wisdom!

  • Give to the less fortunate

    Enjoy your Christmas gifts.

    Christmas is the most wonderful day of the year because it celebrates the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ, but some of us think of it as a time to receive gifts. I would like to ask you a question: do you have a home, clothes to wear, food to eat, a job, and a family and friends that love you?

    If you can answer with a yes, then you are enjoying the most precious gifts that anyone could ask for, so what else would anyone need if they have all those things?

  • What is that? What do you do?

    These are two questions I have heard often during my three years’ membership in the Eminence Education Foundation.     Actually, many natives of Eminence are not familiar with the work of the Education Foundation.

  • 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.
