  • Coach says EHS is still progressing

    After celebrating their best stretch of softball in at least a decade, the Eminence Lady Warriors dropped both of their games last week for a 5-9 overall record entering the second half of the season.

    The Lady Warriors, who were coming off three consecutive wins for the first time since scores were kept by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association in 2002, lost to Carroll County (6-3) on Tuesday and Spencer County (12-2) on Thursday. Bill Covington, the new coach in charge of rebuilding the program, said his players are still progressing despite the two losses.

  • Reality TV’s appeal " and benefits

    Do you watch the reality shows on television?  The number and variety of topics for such programs boggle the mind. Yet it seems as if there’s a promo for a new reality show every week.

    When Claude “Buddy” Berry IV left his teaching post at Eminence High School in April 2009 he promised Principal Steve Frommeyer and the school board he’d return. “Don’t let my classroom get cold,” he said. “I’m not leaving for good. I’m in for the haul.”

    The way Henry County students eat at school is evolving.

    Eminence Independent Schools Director of Child Nutrition Services Becky Barnett said local schools began implementing healthy changes long before celebrity chef Jaime Oliver brought his campaign for healthier school food to the collective attention of television viewers.

  • Berry cares about Eminence

    I have known Buddy Berry for the last seven years. Buddy is extremely intelligent and there is not a more dedicated, harder worker out there. Buddy will give 110 percent and I feel will be a success. I think Eminence made a wonderful choice for superintendent, because Buddy deeply cares about Eminence.

  • Former magistrate supports Meadows

    As the May 18 primary election nears, I ask the voters of Magisterial District No. 1 to consider voting for Danny Meadows. His past experience speaks for itself. Danny has served several years as an Eminence City Councilman, past member and officer of the Eminence Optimist Club, board member of the Henry County Country Club, actively involved as a volunteer coach and organizer for various Henry County youth sports programs, and employed in sales and manufacturing for over 27 years at Eminence Speaker LLC.

  • Happy about curb side recycling

    I want to commend the New Castle City Commission for acting to provide curb side pick-up of recyclables. This voluntary program is progressive and sets a good example for our community.  We all need to do our part to protect the environment. I am confident that this program will encourage many to participate in recycling who wouldn’t  otherwise. Thank you Commissioners for your farsightedness.

  • Thought I hit the jackpot

    I kept a close eye on horse No. 4 in this year’s Kentucky Derby — from the sprint out of the gate to the mid-race jostling for position to the dash to the finish.

    Hours before the race was set to start, I drew No. 4 in two separate pots and had placed a few more bets on him, or so I thought at the time. While at a friend’s house in Trimble County, my eyes were zeroed in on No. 4.
