    With plenty of available parking spaces to go around, letting two businesses and their employees park on Broadway for more than two hours at a time won’t hurt commerce, members of the Eminence City Council decided at their July 11 meeting.
    The discussion arose after an unnamed citizen parked a van and marked it for sale on Broadway in the vicinity of CVS and Citizens Deposit Bank, Mayor Drane Stephens explained at the outset.  Complaints came into the city offices about that, and Stephens got the police involved in order to move the vehicle.

    Growing up in Eminence, Jason Baird played sports from the time he was a small child, but he probably never expected to play even a small role in the Olympics. That all changed when he was selected to be an escort for the 1996 Olympic Torch Relay as it wound its way through Kentucky on route to Atlanta.

  • Another season just around the corner

    It seems almost impossible that the high school fall sports season is almost underway, but high school teams across the county started practices this week in preparation for the 2016 season.

    For many of the coaches of the local football, soccer, volleyball, golf and cross country teams, it is a time of optimism, anticipation, preparation, anxiety and questions.
