    An Eminence man has been indicted on charges that he wrote, and cashed, more than $8,000 in forged checks.

    Matthew Thomas Wells, 24, was arrested on Feb. 23, and indicted earlier this month by the Henry County Grand Jury on 16 counts of 2nd degree forgery.

    According to the indictment Wells admitted to taking a checkbook from ACB Metals and writing 16 checks to himself between Jan. 3 and Feb. 7.  He signed the owner’s name and cashed all 16 checks at Bob’s Liquors in Eminence.

  • Improved EHS girls end season

    It was not the ending first-year head coach Bill Covington was looking for, but he said the entire 2010 season was a success as the Eminence softball team won its most games in six seasons and appears to be on an upswing.

    The Lady Warriors, playing at host Anderson County on Monday night in the opening round of the 30th District tournament, lost to the Lady Bearcats 15-0 in three innings. It was the season finale for a squad that closed out the year with a 7-18 record, the most wins since Eminence had the same record in 2004.

  • The soft effect of a human touch

    Every morning, as my husband passes by the couch where I normally sit with my coffee reading, he pats my head gently as he heads upstairs to shower and dress for the day.  He rarely says anything – just taps my hair and caresses it affectionately as he passes by. It is astounding what an effect this simple gesture has on me. It induces an indescribably relaxed feeling that my world is good and I am too. It’s a wonderful way to start my day.

  • Suter still the winner after recount

    General Manager

    The votes have been counted, and recounted, and J.C. Suter remains the winner of the Democratic primary election for jailer.

    Suter won the race by just two votes over Scott Southworth, 768 to 766. But the vote count was in question last week after an apparent discrepancy was found between the number of votes cast in the West New Castle precinct and the number of signatures in the precinct’s sign-in book. The precinct counted 301 votes, while there were just 300 voter signatures.

  • Generation Rx: Teens and prescription drugs

    Prescription drugs are the fastest growing substance of abuse among teenagers.  According to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, one in five teens reported having abused a prescription drug, and there are now, for the first time, as many new abusers (12 and older) of prescription drugs as there are of marijuana.  The National Survey on Drug Use and Health estimates 2.1 million teens abused prescription drugs in 2005.  This drug abuse is deadly.  Research by the Centers for Disease Control shows that nearly all poisoning deaths in the United States are attributed

  • Injured Ladycats back on track, play in finals

    With a 5-0 win over Carroll County on Monday night, the Henry County Ladycats positioned themselves for a fifth consecutive 31st District softball championship – the victory advanced the Cats to Tuesday night’s finals against Owen County, which was past deadline and will be in next week’s Local.

    Playing at Owen County High School on Monday in the first of two opening-round games, the Ladycats got base runners on every at bat, held Carroll to just three the entire night and came away with the shutout win.

  • Eminence is fortunate to have Berry

    I am proud to say I was raised in Eminence and was a 1966 graduate of Eminence High School.  I am very familiar with the town, the people and of course, Buddy Berry.

    Since I am Buddy’s uncle, I have known him all of his life and there is not another single person that I have met in my lifetime that I respect more than Buddy.  He was an outstanding student, athlete and citizen in his youth and has matured into a caring parent, educator and role model as an adult.
