    Fireplaces provide warmth and a cozy glow in winter, but Henry County’s assistant emergency management coordinator Denny Washburn said a fireplace can be dangerous if the chimney is not properly maintained.

    Washburn, who also is Pleasureville’s fire chief, said Henry County has experienced three heating-related fires in recent weeks.

  • No woman need die from cervical cancer

    As the headline for this column indicates, I am passionate about cervical cancer. I firmly believe that no woman should die from this disease, particularly in the United States.

    And it’s a cause I am so fervently passionate about, that I’ll tell the story and repeat it over and over again, if it will save even one life. Parts of what I’m about to say are mildly graphic. But if we don’t talk about these things, they will continue to happen.

  • Sidewalk project delayed

    General Manager

    A long delayed sidewalk repair project in Eminence will be delayed, again.

    In 2008, Eminence was awarded a TEA-21 grant to repair some of its sidewalks. The grant would have provided the city with about $80,000, with the city chipping in an additional $20,000.

    Mayor Jim Pettit said the grant would help the city repair sidewalks in various parts of the city, including near Eminence School and on Sulphur Avenue, as well as, potentially, north and south Main Street, and portions of Elm Street.
