  • First EHS football signing since Marcus Wright in 2002

    It was no joke. When Shiven Harris signed to play football for Kentucky Wesleyan College on April Fool’s Day, Eminence High School got its first football signing in almost 10 years.

    There have been others from EHS who have, and continue to play football at the next level — notably Zach Young at Eastern Kentucky University and Ed Berry at the University of Kentucky — but Harris becomes the first to actually sign a letter of intent to play for a college since Marcus Wright signed with Kentucky State University in 2002.

  • Local Faith: The Easter parade

    by Michael Duncan

    Pastor, Eminence Baptist Church

    I sometimes forget how many years I’ve lived (a nice way of saying I sometimes forget how old I am).  Whenever my mind starts recalling old songs, I’m reminded.

    As a child, I loved sitting in the living room listening to my mom’s records.  You remember records, don’t you?  They were round discs made of vinyl.  You placed a disc on a turntable, gently placed the stylus arm down onto the disc, and there was music—beautiful stereophonic music.
