  • KSP searching for vending machine thieves

    The two have been seen on video surveillance at several locations, and recently provided police clear images of their faces

    Public Information Officer Michael Webb said the two have hit machines in New Castle, Eminence, Pleasureville and Campbellsburg in Henry.

    They robbed a machine in Milton just a few days ago.

  • Response to Bob Cook’s accusations relating to building permits

    As your Judge-Executive, one issue that I have wrestled with is at what point do you publicly respond to mistruths, false accusations, rumors, etc. If you responded to every one of them you would spend all of your time writing letters to the paper and none of your time making sure the business of the county was getting done. Due to the practicality of writing responses it has been my policy to let most of it go, but occasionally you have something that gets blown so out of proportion that you have no choice but to sit down and try to address it the best you can.

  • It’s a tough week for the Eminence softball team

    Heading into last week, the Eminence Lady Warriors knew it was going to be a tough stretch of softball games. And they were right.

  • Vanishing breed

    For 28 years dairy farmer Billy Smith hasn’t missed his daily appointments. At 730 milkings every year — except in leap year when it’s 732 — that adds up to more than 20,000 milkings. On Jan. 12, Smith completed his 20,000th straight milking.

    The routine is the same every day:

    Twice a day at 5:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., Smith wrangles the cows into the waiting area outside the milking barn.

    He sterilizes each piece of equipment and slips a “sock” over the hose that delivers milk into the milk tank.
