  • New Cafe could be Espressoly for You

    Jennifer Cook wanted a business both teenagers and adults could enjoy in her hometown, New Castle.

    The obstacles of updating an older building with modern health and plumbing codes commonly scare new business owners away, but Cook hopes to change that.

    “I grew up in Henry County and as a teen we constantly wanted somewhere to hang out,” Cook said. “We hung out on Bardstown Road and I thought a coffee shop would be a simple idea.”

  • EHS wins pair on the road

    Two long distance games in two days proved to be no problem for the Eminence Warriors girls’ basketball team.

    On Dec. 21, the Warriors traveled to Silver Grove to take on the Lady Trains and came away with a 50-35 victory. The Warriors jumped out to an 11-0 lead before Silver Grove closed the margin to 13-7 to end the quarter.

     “Our goal in this game was to run our offenses and defenses and we did that to start the game,” Warriors’ coach Bill Covington said.

    Freshman Cheyenne Clark had a breakout performance with 27 points to lead the Cats.

    In the end, some key hustle plays by the Wildcats helped them pull out a 4-point victory 62-58.

  • Warriors 1-1 in tourney

  • A resolution to learn the Tao of dog

    If I ever found myself foolish enough to think I would stick with a resolution for a year, I would steal my dogs’ wisdom.

    We have a weimaraner and labrador mixed dog her name is Tilly and a beagle mixed with what we think is a blue healer named Henry. Henry looks very much like Snoopy and makes similar sounds as the Peanuts character with a custom for snorting when you directly ask him questions.

    These two beasts are mentally superior and I have a lot to learn from them.

  • Resolution: yea or nay?

    By Candy Clarke

     

    Here we go. Another year is about to begin and it’s time to decide if we are going to commit ourselves to a particular course of action or not. Do we really want to be bothered with making New Year’s Resolutions yet again? How about the old ones? Could we just recycle them? Or maybe, we could just take one year off without doing any new resolutions.

  • Get organized in the new year

    The beginning of the New Year offers the opportunity to refresh and reset ourselves in a variety of different ways. One of the ways to do that is to get organized. Organization can help you feel more prepared for daily life and the unexpected situations which may arise over the next few months.  January is National Get Organized Month. In recognition, consider incorporating these “clutter-free” practices in your home.

    If you have a less-than-productive grass pasture or hayfield, following a few simple renovation techniques could increase the field’s productivity.  Some things you can do include planting a legume such as red clover, controlling pests and adding lime and fertilizer. Be aware though, some techniques require you to start as early as the middle of February.
