  • Council questions contract

    General Manager

    In a special meeting Monday night, the Campbellsburg City Council learned that a contract between Graham Whatley and the City of Campbellsburg may not be valid.

    Members of the council last week called for a special meeting after receiving Whatley’s contract, which they said contained false information.

  • Wildcats drop ‘winnable’ soccer game to Owen Co.

    Playing against the one team they had beaten this season, the Henry County Wildcats lost to Owen County, 3-0, last Thursday night in what was their final home soccer game of 2010.

    The Wildcats beat Owen on Aug. 19, but could not repeat with another win exactly five weeks later to drop their overall record to 1-10 heading down the final stretch.

  • “Here we go again”

    Mayors running for city council and city council members running for mayor. Sounds like a revolving door of the same ideas and the same intrusive rules and regulations. I see no change at all. As I said before the last election we need new people with new ideas.

  • Residents encouraged to submit questions for election forums

  • Support LeeAnn Armstrong

    It’s been a wonderful summer here in Eminence. The activities - Music on Main, DJ in the Park, movie night and even cruising - have been a perfect time to get out of the house and socialize for all ages.

    We are fortunate to have a city council that isn’t satisfied with just being a city, but wants to build community among the residents. The planning and execution of these activities deserves our gratitude and support.

  • EIS to get cleaned up

    Staff writer/photographer

    New Eminence Independent Schools superintendent Buddy Berry is not afraid to get his hands dirty.

    At the September school board meeting Berry said he is making a clean-up of the schools a top priority. “It got to the point where we questioned whether it even could be cleaned or is it just an old building,” he said.

    Berry called in a professional cleaning company to evaluate the situation and was told the building could be put to rights.

  • Few states can match Kentucky’s automotive record

    When it comes to the automotive industry, few states can match Kentucky’s record.

    Our association with Henry Ford, for example, stretches back almost a century, when in 1912 he opened a sales and service office in Louisville.  A few years later, that city was producing 7,000 vehicles, and a few years after that it became home to the country’s first modern assembly plant.  Now, Louisville’s two production facilities – one that began in 1955 and the other in 1969 – are regularly among the company’s leaders.
