  • Coach D's memory will live on

    They came in jeans and shirts, ties and suits. They came as current players, former players, students, coaches, family and friends. They filed in Eminence’s gym, found a seat in the stands and glared out onto the court almost like they were there to watch a game.

  • UK helps improve life in Henry County

  • Lady Warriors split Spencer, Riverside double header

    In what was supposed to be just one game Saturday afternoon, two different opponents showed up which left the Eminence girls’ basketball team playing a double header against Spencer County and Riverside Christian.

  • There is no greater gift than the gift of hope

    At this time of the year our thoughts turn toward gifts and giving. However, there is no greater gift than the gift of hope. In our community there was someone who lost their job months ago. With no income and no immediate family, they in turn lost their electric, their water and relying on wood for heat, they were down to just seven sticks of firewood.

  • Every new year is a cause for celebration

    New Year’s Eve has never meant a huge celebration for my husband and me.

    We were married on Dec. 28, and our second daughter was born Dec. 27. Between those occasions and Christmas, we have never been much in the mood to party on New Year’s Eve. Still, for about 20 years when I was younger, I eagerly looked forward to Dec. 31, more than any other holiday.

  • This is the year I’ll stick to that resolution

    General Manager

    I’m terrible at keeping resolutions. But then, I imagine that most people are.

    Like many people, I’ve made a variety of New Year’s resolutions over the years. They’ve ranged from the standard resolutions to exercise more and lose weight to trying to get the dishes done at the end of each day.

    I came close to making it this year — I somewhat silently resolved to exercise more. A couple of weeks later, I took the first step toward that and bought a mini-stair stepping machine.

    Individually, the Eminence Lady Warriors are getting better, coach Carter Martin said after his team took a 28-24 loss to Silver Grove last Monday and a 41-22 loss to Dayton Tuesday to close out the Grant County Invitational.

    “We are getting better, and as long as we keep learning things every game I’m happy,” Martin said.
