• Seeking your vote

    I am Pauline “Polly” Troxell and I am seeking reelection to the Eminence City Council. I have served two terms and I am asking for your vote in November.
    I will work hard to continue to make our  city even more attractive than it is. I serve on the festival and budget committees, and anywhere else I am needed.
    We live in a great little city and I am proud to call Eminence my home. I will try and visit every home to personally ask for your vote.
    As always, I am just a phone call away — 845-7518. Please don’t hesitate to call.

  • Money from misfortune

    I was so greatly incensed at the vitriolic and unethical remarks in Joe Yates letter to the editor about (former) Congressman Geoff Davis. I and most of his constituents, it would seem, that have put him back in office have greatly approved of Congressman Davis’ very professional job done as a Congressman for his district. He has certainly been a watchdog against the very liberal efforts of our present administration in Washington.

  • City will lose legacy

    I am disappointed by the news that the remaining buildings at the corner of East Broadway and Penn Avenue in Eminence are to be razed. I had the honor of serving as the Main Street Manager for the city for several years and learned of the many beautiful old buildings that have been lost over the past decades. I also had the privilege, during my tenure, of being taken inside the building known as the “old dance hall” and the old brick residence to the rear of it. The beauty of that experience made time stand still for me.

  • Citizen involvement and civic pride

    Every town needs it to prosper and Eminence has it!
    As an example, perhaps you’ve noticed lately the change in the Eminence Cemetery. Those stark dead tree trunk that stood defiantly throughout the cemetery since the tornadoes of the early 1970s are gone. Removing them was the first phase of a plant to bring our venerable cemetery back to its heritage of beauty and dignity.

  • With love and determination

  • Fiscal responsibility should be commended

    I truly hope my fellow Henry County residents realize how fortunate we are to have fiscally responsible county leaders. (“Magistrates to cut $150k from budget”)

  • Forget Fox, remember reason

    I had not intended my July 25 letter to be solely a defense of the Affordable Care Act, but to point out the widespread deception of Mr. (Geoff) Davis and his party, and the unquestioning acceptance of these lies by many people on many issues.  

  • David needs your help! And so does Mona

    Do you remember the story of David in the Bible?  He held a slingshot to fight off Goliath.
    Well, I feel like David as I have been issued a challenge with Bullitt and Shelby Counties.  We are having a competition: who can walk the most steps on Sept. 29, in simultaneous walks in our counties. I feel like David as both counties are much bigger than we.  However, even if we are small we are mighty and we can win.

  • Obamacare takes away our freedom and control

    It was very disappointing to read Mr. Yates’ scathing criticism of Congressman Geoff Davis who has served this district with diligence for many years. As is often the case, the words and the tone of Mr. Yates’ letter reflected more negatively on him rather than Mr. Davis.

    We thank Congressman Davis for his many years of service. We have appreciated his commitment in representing us and in keeping us informed of the legislative issues in Washington. We wish him and his family well, particularly since he had to resign so abruptly due to urgent family issues.

  • Led to serve

    Saturday I announced my candidacy for the Eminence City Council.

    After prayer, speaking with my wife, and seeking the counsel of friends, I feel lead to offer my experience to serve the people of Eminence.
