  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Hot Rods & BBQ opens in C-burg

    Customers at Hot Rods & BBQ in Campbellsburg do a double take when owner Joe Wieland provides the service instead of Ben and Dana Freeman, the former proprietors of Freeman’s Kountry Korner Kafe.
    Wieland owns the business on U.S. 421 as of February and long-time friend Bobby Smith manages the comfort food restaurant and bar.
    But if people want to visit the Freemans, they aren’t far away. On occasion, they will occupy a booth in the eatery, but the Freemans still have plenty of work to do next door at First and Last Liquors.

    The owners of H&H Flooring, the Hannas, have operated their family business in Eminence for five years, while keeping a relatively low profile while they concentrated on work.

    “We’re expanding our existing business,” Tori Hanna, co-owner, said. She hopes to get to know more Henry County residents at the opening.
