  • Tracksters continue to get better

    Shelby Armstrong won the long jump while Corey Roberts won the shot put — both in the middle school division — and the Eminence track team continued to improve at the Henry County All-Comers last Thursday night.

    The high school and middle school athletes competed against each other in the weekday meet, but the results were divided out after the competition. Afterwards, coach Steve Frommeyer said he was very pleased with his athletes. There’s not many of them, but they continue to progress as the end of the season draws near.

    Kentucky constables have the power of arrest and may execute warrants, subpoenas, summonses and other court documents.

    And if a given county’s Fiscal Court approves, they may even have lights and sirens on their vehicles.

    Constables must be at least 24 years of age, a resident of Kentucky for at least 2 years, and a resident of the county and district for at least a year prior to election.

    They do not have to attend Department of Criminal Justice Training academy, but some do.

  • The aftermath of the Jerry Springer show

    What a difference two months makes.

    On March 1, Pleasureville had its last, and now infamous, wild meeting. It was what I referred to as a Jerry Springer like atmosphere.

    Since then, three of the four commissioners who were on the commission have resigned — though one, Gary Grigsby, resigned only because he moved from Pleasureville to Shelbyville.

    Citing health concerns, Sandra Woods resigned after the February meeting.

  • Did the board make the right choice?

    Of course.  When I first moved my family to the Eminence School district in 1989, one of the most impressive things about Eminence was the small town, homey feeling which included a young superintendent with children in the school who had a vested interest in what happened in the building!  Now, I have grandchildren in Eminence Independent Schools and I look forward to what Buddy Berry brings to the table as superintendent.

  • Ladycats are NCKC champs!

    After beating Walton-Verona in an emotional finale to the North Central Kentucky Conference tournament last Wednesday night, the Henry County Ladycats jumped, cheered and gave high fives. They couldn’t keep it in, not after they were denied the claim as the top team in the conference the previous two seasons.

  • Response to FDA commentary

    The FDA’s job is to ensure the safety of the things marketed as food for our bodies, which they have done time and again with poisonous drugs, chemicals and food additives. By restricting sodium in processed foods they are not removing anything from the shelves or the restaurants. They are making sure the giant multinationals that profit from adding cheap additives, fillers and chemicals must make higher quality products. Is higher quality a bad thing? Obviously not.
