  • Cats runners-up in Toyota Holiday Classic

    Even with a new coach and inexperienced players, the expectations are high for the Henry County High School boys’ basketball team. And that’s just the way coach Derek Springate wants to keep it.

    The Wildcats finished second place in the Forcht Bank/Dry Ridge Toyota Holiday Classic hosted by Grant County last week, but Springate was not satisfied after his team went 2-2 during the five-day stretch. The Cats beat Ludlow (70-51) last Saturday and Grant County (56-42) on Monday, and then lost to Williamstown (38-37) on Tuesday and South Oldham (46-33) on Wednesday.

  • Sluggish starts equal two more EHS losses

    The Eminence Warriors followed two near-identical storylines last week, starting out sluggish against Evangel Christian and Heritage Academy before regrouping when the basketball games were out of reach.

    Playing in the Portland Christian Holiday Classic, the EHS boys’ team lost to Evangel last Monday, 88-57, then lost to Heritage on Tuesday, 77-52, to drop its record to 1-7. The Warriors were trailing 27-3 during the opening quarter of the first game and 20-8 in the second.

  • Thanks for help with nativity

    We want to thank everyone who helped in any way to once again make sure the ministry of the Bethlehem Living Nativity keeps going.

    This portrayal of our savior Jesus Christ’s birth is now 51 years old.

    Without all your help and support these many years, this would surely not have been possible.

    Again, thank you so much. May God bless each of you.

    The New York Times July 21, 1969, headline reads “Men walk on moon,” but the plastic-bagged historic paper, in pristine condition, is not housed in some museum. It’s for sale at the newly opened Tiffany’s Great Bargains Flea Market at 5247 S. Main Street in Eminence.

    Operator Melissa Carroll said she plans to fill the 3,500 square foot space with everything a peddlers’ mall patron’s heart could desire.

  • Eminence girls’ squad still looking for a victory

    The Eminence High School girls’ basketball team dropped games to Whitefield Academy and Newport last week, which gave the Lady Warriors an 0-6 start to the season.

    Eminence coach Carter Martin said his team played “better” in the 75-32 loss to Whitefield last Friday and “poorly” in the 61-22 loss to Newport on Saturday in the opening game of the Grant County Forcht Bank/Dry Ridge Toyota Holiday Classic. Both games resulted in losses for a squad still trying to put its first check in the win column.

  • It’s first win of season for Warriors

    In their first feel-good moment of the season, the Eminence Warriors defeated Kentucky School for the Deaf last Thursday night.

    The 49-43 win snapped a 20-game losing streak dating back to last December. The Warriors dropped their final 15 games last winter, then opened with losses to Gallatin County, Heritage Academy, Evangel Christian, Burgin and Kentucky Country Day.

  • Christmas isn’t just for children

    The other day I overheard a conversation in the grocery store while waiting in line to check out. A woman was saying that Christmas is for children, and her listener clucked her tongue and said that she certainly had to agree. I have heard this sad assessment of the holiday season before, but I am always taken aback. 

    Certainly, the religious significance of the Christmas season does not fade as one ages. If anything, it may deepen as you become stronger in your faith. I am sure there are many heartfelt sermons delivered on that very topic each December.
