  • Grand jury indicts fugitive in March chase

    Even though he remains at large after leading police on a high-speed pursuit March 9, a 26-year-old Smithfield man has been indicted by the Henry County grand jury based on the incident.
    Zachary D. Ethington allegedly fled after Campbellsburg’s police officer, Tony Rucker, got behind a white sedan and turned on his blue lights for an ordinary traffic stop.
    Rucker had noticed that neither the male driver nor the female passenger were wearing their seatbelts at the time.

  • Schools aid homeless students

    Homeless children are everywhere — even in Henry County. Local schools continue trying to make sure their hardships aren’t compounded by those children missing out on class, too.
    Educators say 22 of Henry County Public School young people are homeless, while 93 out of 377 students in Eminence Independent Schools are without fixed, regular and adequate nighttime lodging, the key measure of homeless youth. Once a child is determined homeless, aid kicks in — shelter assistance, clothing and food donations, counseling, job placement for adults and economic education for the families.

  • Fletcher will always have a seat at C-burg council

  • New lawn equipment dealer is on the ‘cutting edge’

    A Defoe business owner plans to use his skills working on heavy equipment to provide cutting edge sales and service for lawn care needs.
    Marlin Miller’s original plan involved opening a custom welding and equipment repair shop, but he then heard from neighbors in Defoe they needed someone who could provide dependable service for their mowing equipment.
    As a result of that input, Miller recently opened Cutting Edge Farm and Lawn at 9160 Castle Highway, where he will offer sales and service equipment.

  • Wildcats plan response to school violence

    Students at Henry County High School will lead the way to a more positive atmosphere as a response to deadly shootings in Parkland, Fla., and Marshall County.
    Instead of following calls from across the country to join in the National School Walkout March 14, Henry County students felt moved to do their own thing with the goal to turn the discussion toward positivity and inclusivity, according to sophomores Sydney Bastin and Alyssa Wilson.

  • Mystical Feeling

    There’s a mystical feeling when a preacher can connect with the congregation, a feeling Rev. Michael Duncan has experienced many times while in the pulpit at Eminence Baptist Church.
    But after 38 years as the church’s pastor, Duncan will step down April 8. He and wife Donna won’t stray too far as they’ve made Eminence their home.
    Though Duncan had expectations of taking up another pulpit in the past, after their arrival on Nov. 1, 1979, no other congregation could pull him away. Looking back, Duncan’s not certain if he could enjoy a connection with members of another church as he has here.

  • Repairs underway at fire damaged Osage apartments
