  • Opening time for 18 Main Street

    When a tractor-trailer delivered the first load of food to the new 18 Main Street in New Castle, it drew an almost immediate reaction from one neighbor.
    Even as the delivery man hauled in boxes of supplies on a dolly, parked out front because there’s no entryway in the rear of the building, Debbie Wright answered the phone for the pub-style eatery with the full bar.
    “‘Does this mean you’re serving lunch today?” she repeated the question she heard, laughing.

    State police learned of the incident when dispatchers received a call from the La Grange Police Department, reporting a person being shot at on L’Esprit Parkway.

  • Church histories, futures source of inspiration

    Always one to share ideas freely, more than a year ago Ron Wright, Eminence native and Washington Lodge Odd Fellows member, suggested I could always write articles on local churches for Black History Month.

    As a good idea, that one stayed with me all the way through the rest of 2016 and into 2017, and it turned out successfully — in my opinion, anyway — when it comes to telling stories from different perspectives.

    The host Lady Cats took a 5-2 lead with 3:25 left in the first quarter on a Katherine Buckler 3-pointer. But the Warriors answered back with 3-pointers from Emilie Ethington and Tavi West to lead 8-5 after a nervous opening period for both teams.

  • County clerk, sheriff turn over excess fees to fiscal court

    Rounds of applause greeted two elected officials who turned in a combined $137,000 worth of excess fees to Henry County Fiscal Court Feb. 21.
    County Clerk Shanda Archer contributed $106,000 of the total while Sheriff Danny Cravens handed over a check for $31,000.
    Despite several unexpected challenges, such as the impending closure of the Henry County Historical Society museum where old county records had been stored and the need to store voting machines locally, Archer said her office worked with the goal of holding down expenses as much as possible.

    Campbellsburg and Carrollton Utilities seem on the verge of transferring the sewer system from the city to the utilities provider, 10 years after conceiving the project, according to discussion at the busy Feb. 20 council meeting.
