  • First high school ratings for girls released

    Four days after the first boys’ basketball Litkenhous Ratings of the season were released, the Courier-Jurnal revealed the first girls’ list. For the two high schools in Henry County, the results were the same.

    The Henry girls are 11th among 8th Region teams and the Eminence girls are 16th — the exact same spots as their counterparts. There are 16 teams in the region.

    The Litkenhous Ratings are a computerized formula that ranks the state’s teams based on record, strength of schedule and other factors against in-state schools.

  • Readers sound off on Danny May appeal

    I am writing about the appellate court that granted the (Danny) May appeal. I think you did a great job in your story. I hope that everyone who read that article will see that there are a lot of people that are not getting a fair deal. And thank God someone from the Court of Appeals took time to research May’s court record, and found in his favor. Glory be to God in the highest. I hope that everyone will respond to that article.

  • Readers sound off on Danny May appeal

    I am writing in regard to the May appeal story because I am one of the few people who have seen the records that exist which contain certain statements made by the state that are in my opinion very wrong for a person of the court to make when they are involved in the case that decides the fate of that person.

    At 11 a.m. Eminence resident Mark Zimmerman climbed onto a treadmill at the Eminence Community Center. A bank of windows in the fitness room set high on the wall provided privacy as well as sunlight.

    Fifteen minutes into his routine he ramped up the incline and speed settings, providing more bang for his cardiovascular buck.

    He was sweating, but talked easily about his recent physical transformation.

    Zimmerman quit smoking a year ago, and decided to kick his health up another notch.

  • Readers sound off on Danny May appeal

    After reading the Dec. 9, 2009 article published on the case against Danny May, I begin to wonder what happened to our “fair and impartial” Judicial system.  If something like this can happen to a guy like Danny, whom I’ve known for more than 15 years, then it could happen to just about anybody.

    I didn’t want to believe that someone with an outlook on life like Danny  could have ever done such things, but at the same time I began to have my doubts towards his innocence after his conviction.
