  • All in a Rowe

    Melvin Rowe, artist and creator of Louisville’s Pottery Rowe, has been shaping his world in clay since 1971.

    But this will be his first year to go medieval in Henry County.

    During a phone interview, Rowe said he was working on shaping clay into a two-and-a-half inch clay dragon that will slither up the side of a drinking mug to be peddled at the Kentucky Renaissance Faire this summer. Gargoyles and castles are not far behind.

    Weekly story time at the Henry County Public Library has always signaled a time for local children to gather under the branches of the story tree.
    Unfortunately, the children’s section has been closed for repairs since Valentine’s Day, when a patron ran into an exterior wall with her vehicle.
    The story tree limbs have been bare since the accident, but that’s about to change.

  • Playing from the heart

    Seven sleepy-eyed fifth graders straggled in to Amy Knight’s humanities room at Eastern Elementary School on Tuesday morning.
    They took violins and cellos out of black gig bags, and adjusted sheet music on stands, chairs placed in a semi-circle around their musical director.

    The orchestra members tucked instruments under their chins or balanced cellos between their knees. Knight readied the group to play “Irish Melody.”

    The first attempt of the morning was not quite up to par.

    Call it the ultimate do-it-yourself job. Henry County Water No. 2 Chief Operating Officer Jimmy Simpson thinks of it as a common sense way to save his customers money.

    Last week, the utility company began work to upgrade 23,000 feet, or about 4.25 miles, of water line on Kentucky 193 between the state road barn and Lacie.

  • Red Cross discusses shelter options for EIS Warrior Activity Center

    When a community crisis occurs, Henry County residents pull together for family, friends and neighbors.

    Still, there are parts of the population that may have few options in the face of a disaster. Road closures, power outages and isolation may necessitate the opening of a mass shelter.

    During and after the ice storm of 2009 one was opened at the Eminence Community Life Center, now known as the Warrior Activity Center.
