  • Fair once was a July 4 picnic

    In the early 1900s, the Henry County Fair then called the Henry County Homecoming and Fourth of July Picnic, boasted attendance records paling any event in the state aside from the Kentucky Derby.

    More than 100 years later, its original location and amusements have changed but it still draws families from across the county.

  • Drought could lead to livestock poisoning

    Drought and hot weather has increased the questions we are getting in the County Extension Office concerning cattle and cattle feeds.

    While this should be simply a reminder to experienced farmers, some of it may be beneficial, especially to newer farmers. These tips come from Dr. Roy Burris, Extension Beef Specialist at the UK Princeton Farm, who is, by the way, a very wise and experience cattleman himself.

  • Technology changes prompt font problems

    Sometimes I’m convinced that technology is more difficult that it’s worth.

    As reliant as we are on technology, particularly at the Local, to get the paper out each week, technology  slaps us in the face a little.

    Unfortunately, when technology quirks happen, it often shows in our finished product. And for that, we apologize to you, our readers.

  • Eminence Guest column: July an unusually busy month for legislature

    July may not be a time normally associated with a rush of legislative activity, but in a key way, no month is busier.

    That’s because it marks the beginning of the state’s fiscal year, and it also is when most of the new laws adopted earlier in the year by the General Assembly take effect.  Unless there is an emergency clause or another specified date, all enacted bills officially go on the books 90 days after the end of a legislative session.  This year, that falls on July 12.

  • One is the loneliest number

    Scoring is up in the world’s most popular tournament this year. There have been stunning moves and scores, plus drama on and off the playing surface. I have watched as much of it as I can but work gets in the way and I’ve missed some great games.
    No, I’m not talking NBA playoffs.

  • Roberts went from 'nobody' to somebody


    During the 30th District girls’ basketball final in 1993, two rare things happened.
    The first was Henry County and Eminence basketball fans cheering a team on together. They chanted in unison, over and over again, “We are somebody!”
    The other was the first, and only, district title for the Lady Warriors, which came in a win over the Shelby County Lady Rockets.
    Fans from both Henry County and Eminence were ecstatic to see the David and Goliath moment.
