  • Phone company president supports new communications laws

    In my travels across the Commonwealth, I hear from folks excited about their new smartphones, their modern tablets, and their high-speed Internet connections at home.  I interact with businesses that are thriving because of their modern broadband connectivity, both wired and wireless. 

  • Get your motor running - not

    Simple as it is, my first ever carport is doing its job — sparing me from the worst ravages of winter.

    In the latest proof that “it’s better to be lucky than good,” the only move-in-ready house we could find in our relocation last year also provided an overhang just big enough to squeeze both our Chevys under.

    The Eminence Warriors hosted the Carroll County Panthers Saturday night with a lot riding on the outcome of the game. The Warriors could clinch the number two seed for the district tournament with a win.

    But the team got bad news before the game even started when they found out that starter Justin Mitchell would have to miss the game with a knee injury. With Trevor Payton already sidelined, that meant Eminence would be playing with only 60 percent of their regular starting lineup.

    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted their county rivals, the Eminence Warriors, Thursday night and came away with a 40-18 win but it wasn’t as easy as the score indicates.

    The Warriors came out hot and the Lady Cats were ice cold in the early going.

    The Warriors’ Kenya Vargas opened the scoring with a 3-pointer with 4:30 left in the opening period. Lyndsay Craigmyle followed with a 12-footer before Megan Payton hit one of two free throws for the Lady Cats with 3:15 left.

    The Henry County Wildcats traveled to Warsaw on Jan. 27 to play Gallatin County in a game with huge implications for the seeding of the district tournament. If Henry County won, they would guarantee themselves a spot in the semifinals as either a two or three seed. That meant they could avoid being relegated to playing an extra game to get the finals.

    Unfortunately for the Wildcats, severe foul trouble ruined their plans to take control of the their own destiny as Gallatin County won 64-56.
