    The Eminence Warriors went into the last week of the season with a daunting task. They had four games scheduled, but would face three of their opponents on the road without their seniors who were away on the senior field trip to Gatlinburg.

    The one game the Warriors had at home with their full complement of players was against Williamstown May 11. The game was called off due to inclement weather.

    That left the Warriors to face Trimble and Gallatin counties and Burgin without the services of their three leaders.

  • Safe canning practices will keep everyone healthy

    Gardens are beginning to bear the fruits of our labor.
    Soon, it will be time to start thinking about preserving some of the excess produce for winter months.
    Safety is of utmost importance for those of us who will be preserving food, because — let’s face it — no one wants to get sick from poorly processed food.
    Bacteria, molds and yeast can grow quickly on fresh foods, and fruits and vegetables contain oxygen and enzymes that can cause food to spoil.
