    Any indication of the difficulties he had faced were absent, as Foree flashed his bright smile several times throughout the evening, and got a big hug from Assistant Principal Donna McClamroch at the end of the ceremony.

  • Income is key concern

    Should the county proceed with the state proposal to build a new justice center/courthouse, it would mean the loss of more than $50,000 in income related to the state’s use of the existing courthouse.

  • By-the-drink vote in NE New Castle

    In three weeks, voters in the Northeast New Castle precinct will decide whether or not Henry County Country Club will be able to sell alcohol by the drink.

    The special election will be held Tuesday, June 21, and will involve only that precinct in which the country club is located.

  • Alvey sees life with new purpose

    Four years ago today, on June 1, 2007, against all odds, Sydney Alvey walked across the stage to receive her Eminence High School diploma.
    Last month, she made a similar walk, this time to get her diploma from Jefferson Community and Technical College, graduating with an associates degree in human services.

  • A plan for America’s jobs creators

  • District tournament games pushed back

    Stormy weather conditions continue to hamper the 2011 baseball and softball seasons, right up to the end.

    As the postseason started on Monday night, a storm swept through the area, causing local first-round games to be delayed and eventually postponed until at least Tuesday. More storms are expected the rest of this week, leading up to Monday’s 8th Region tournaments. It might be a tricky postseason to get in all needed games.
