    Tim Tingle almost rhymes with Kris Kringle. Aptly, Tingle and a few hardworking elves recently put finishing touches on a magical Christmas shop right in the middle of downtown Eminence.

    Country Treasures, Antiques, Florals and Consignments opened for business at 5241 Main Street just in time for Light Up Eminence.

  • Help needed for Pendleton family

    Calvary Baptist Church’s pastor Brent Coley is asking for the community’s help for Pat and Janie Harris who lost their Pendleton mobile home and everything in it last Thursday, December 10.

    He said the church has paid for the Harrises and their eight-year old daughter Rebecca to stay at a hotel in LaGrange until the end of this week, but after that the family will have no place to go.

    “They probably need some short-term housing to rent,” Coley said, “a couple of weeks or 30 days.”

  • Did you hear? Rumor causes ruckus

    Did you hear? A couple of weeks ago, on Nov. 30, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Kentucky State Police raided the Henry County Courthouse. They took computers and financial records.

    No, wait, that’s not right.

    They raided Henry County Planning and Zoning and, in addition to taking computers and financial records, shut the Planning and Zoning office down.

    You didn’t hear that? Hmm. If you didn’t, you must have been under a rock a couple weeks ago.

    New Castle resident Phyllis Smith began to feel like one of the crew at Cook’s Pharmacy this month, though she never collected a paycheck.

    Smith spent several hours a day several days a week volunteering at the Eminence store to help local residents choose a child to sponsor from the Tri-County Community Action Agency’s Teddy Bear Tree.

    By the last day of the charity drive, just four names were left out of more than 100.

    General Manager

    The air was crisp and cool Saturday morning as volunteers from the Bethlehem area gathered to set the stage for their single biggest event.

    It takes countless volunteers to prepare, and a total of 12 actors for each of the three nightly shifts in the manger scene. There are, according to one event organizer, 144 characters over the course of the event.

    Kevin Croxton joked that volunteers have done the live nativity scene so many times now, that preparation has become automatic.
