  • Sulphur’s demise was closely tied to automobiles

    The expansion of the railroad stopped progress in the river towns like Lockport and Gestville where goods, supplies and passengers relied on the steamboat.

    Similarly, the automobile would stop progress in towns like Sulphur.

    Sulphur has had as many names as it has changes to its hilly rural landscape.

  • Eminence Reading Buddies

    For 30 minutes each Friday, buddies at Eminence Elementary and Middle Schools get together and enjoy a good book.

    The Reading Buddies program began at Eminence Independent Schools eight years ago, the expression of an idea that started on an Arby’s napkin.

    Language Arts teacher Jennifer Montgomery and librarian Penny Bland were working on their National Board Certification, thinking of projects they could collaborate on.

    For seven or eight weeks, first grade students and eighth grade students meet in the school’s library.

  • 1888: Cook applies for alcohol permit

    200 Years Ago

    John Jones, Clerk of the Henry County Court, was allowed $2.37 for apprehending John Montgomery on a charge of felony and summoning three witnesses in behalf of the Commonwealth.

    At the February term of the County Court, Edmund Searcy was appointed to check the weights and scales at Sullinger’s Warehouse.

  • Snowy odds and ends

    After an extremely busy week of high school basketball last week I was looking forward to a lighter schedule of games for this week’s issue.

    Six games seemed much more manageable and I was looking forward to giving each game a little more coverage. When there are 11 games on the schedule as there was last week it’s hard to do them all justice.

    But then Mother Nature decided to give us just enough snow over the weekend to cancel or postpone three of those games. That left me with the prospect of a very sparse issue for this week.

  • 'What they're good at, we're not'

    In a game rescheduled because of snow, the Henry County Lady Cats fell to Gallatin County, 87-39.

    Gallatin County was hot from the start, putting up 34 points in the first quarter on 15-of-17 shooting, including three 3-pointers.

    “They started off really hot,” Henry County coach Todd Gilley said. “If we made any small mistake on the defensive end, they took advantage and hit a jump shot. They attacked very quickly and even though our girls were back on defense, they attacked before we could set our defense.”

  • Third Quarter's the Charm

    The third quarter’s the charm for the Eminence Warriors.

    In games against Williamstown and Carroll County, the Warriors outscored their opponents by wide margins in the third period to blitz both opponents.

    Against Carroll County, the Warriors jumped out to a 6-1 lead as Jalen Dixie hit consecutive 3-pointers on the Warriors first two possessions.

  • Warriors fall to Lady Tigers

    With just 8 players available, the Eminence girls basketball team was shorthanded as they traveled to Bardstown Monday.

    The Warriors fell to the Lady Tigers, 55-14; thanks in part to a decisive, second-quarter run.

    With such a short roster, the Warriors were faced with the prospect of seeing pressure defense from the outset. Bardstown’s pressure was too much as turnovers piled up for EHS.

  • Ducks don’t argue for a moral responsibility

    I can’t stand some of the things my tax money gets spent on.

    After talking to our local state legislators about the issues in the upcoming session, I am equally optimistic and equally ruffled about the feathers on who gets my money and where it goes.

    Taxes ruffle everyone’s feathers except for the ducks.

    Despite my ongoing negotiations with my boss and the corporation that owns us, they still don’t see my reasoning for a six-figure salary. For that reason, I am not the richest writer in the world and spend modestly.
